Last night the Champions League group stages continued and while there were some enticing games, the teams who were expected to win did.
Week two of the UEFA Champions League group stages has begun and the first night of fixtures has produced brilliant football.
The much anticipated UEFA Champions League returned on Tuesday night and did so with a bang. The opening night had it all from upsets, VAR controversy to history being made. It was certainly not a disappointing opening night for football fans.
When we think about Manchester City we think invincible, especially when it comes to champions versus newly promoted outfits. City’s record against newly promoted sides like Norwich speaks for itself.
Manchester United still to this day remains one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the world, but it’s been relatively hard going for two times Champions League winners since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
The new Serie A season kicks off this weekend, with current champions Juventus beginning their latest title defence with an away trip to Parma.
This week was the first of the new campaign where the Championship held midweek fixtures, and some proved to be very telling indeed. With the season now 4 games old, already there are reasons to be optimistic for some teams, while it’s panic stations elsewhere.
You could say that this Premier League weekend was all about the newly promoted teams, with two out of the three securing magnificent victories.
Two teams who many had concerns about heading into the new Championship campaign are now the only sides in the division to have recorded two wins from their opening two games of the season.
Finally, the Premier League is back, with football fans around the world rejoicing that the off season is now over.
