UEFA Champions League Matchweek 1 Wrap-Up for English Clubs

Antonietta Baldassarre  Insidef

United were awarded a penalty deep into injury time after a protracted VAR decision, which Marcus Rashford scored to knock the French side out in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Reds have often found Stamford Bridge a tough place to visit, but how much can you remember about some of the goals they have scored in west London? "We have got a big game on Sunday and we are confident we can win the game".

Stefan Savic nodded home from point-blank range to give Atletico hope and substitute Hector Herrera headed in a corner in the final minute to snatch a point. Liverpool played better than last season.

Liverpool's prolific front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane misfired as the European champion's title defense started with a 2-0 loss to Napoli.

Yet, the feeling is that Liverpool's 2-0 win over Spurs at the Metropolitano last season might have signalled the beginning of the end of the reign of Spain.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club of England were the other finalists from last year's tournament, and they open their campaign against Greek opposition, Olympiacos at Stadio Georgios Karaiskakis, Piraeus in Greece at 9:55 a.m. PST.

"They were superior to us in everything they did, and in intensity, which annoys me the most", said the Frenchman.

Virgil van Dijk's focus has switched to Chelsea following the frustration of Tuesday's 2-0 defeat to Napoli. It was the first European test for the new-look Chelsea team under coach Frank Lampard.

They also lost Mason Mount to injury following a challenge from ex-Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin.

Lionel Messi came on as a substitute for the last 30 minutes for his first appearance of the season but was unable to spark the visitors' struggling attack, with Dortmund creating the best chances of the game.

"Obviously the penalty changed it all and we're going home with no points but it shouldn't be a wake-up call. I had multiple incredible nights in the Champions League - and some bad ones - and it is the ultimate in club football for me".

"It's not enough beating the record, sometimes we have to do even more".

Leipzig, another club trying to break into Europe's elite, also had a winning start as it surprisingly beat Benfica 2-1 in Portugal.

First up, there are two early contests with Inter Milan hosting Slavia Prague and Lyon taking on Zenit St. Petersburg.
