Champions league English clubs results
The Champions League third round has now passed and we are halfway through the group stages. All four English cubs won this round with Spurs getting a much-needed win. They faced Red Star Belgrade who are a tough team to beat at home but their away form in the Champions League is terrible. If Spurs did not win this match, then there would have been a lot more problems and questions of Pochettino’s team. However, they were able to put in a comprehensive win battering the Serbian side 5-0 with Son and Kane both banging in a brace and Lamela also getting in on the action.
Another English club to score five goals were Manchester City against Atalanta. The match actually started a little nervy for them in the first half-hour and they even conceded first when Fernadinho brought down Ilicic in the penalty spot. However, their lead only lasted six minutes and Aguero scored two goals in four minutes to put them ahead for half time. In the second half, Sterling bagged his first Champions League hattrick to seal a comprehensive win and keep City top of the group with three wins out of three.
Liverpool had not won a Champions League group stage away game since October 2017. However, Genk were sitting bottom of the group picking up only one point from their first two games. The match started in the best way when Chamberlin picked up the ball outside the box and buried it into the bottom right-hand corner. This was Chamberlin’s first Champions League goal in almost two years, and he scored a second which was an absolute cracker and contender for goal of the Champions League. It is good to see him getting back to his best after almost a year out. Mane then scored a very good team goal, with Salah also getting on the scoresheet late on as well. One negative for Liverpool is they conceded a goal in the dying minutes to take away their clean sheet.
Chelsea had to travel to Amsterdam to face Ajax, which is a tough place to come to. The first half Ajax dominated the game and even scored a goal, but it was reviewed by VAR and ruled out for a narrow offside. In the second half, Chelsea came out the stronger team and had the better chances. However, the game looked like it was going to end 0-0 until Batshuayi scored in the 86th minute after a good run from Pulisic. Chelsea sit top of the table now level on six points with Ajax but having a better head to head.
