It was a festival of goals in the UEFA Champions League last night as top clubs got into the act except for the match between AS Roma and Atletico Madrid which ended in a stalemate.

EPL champions Chelsea FC silenced any notion of a squad crisis as they hit Azerbaijan champions Qarabag FC 6-0 with goals from Pedro, Davide Zappacosta, Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and a brace from Michy Batshuayi even though the second of his goals was given as an own goal.

Manchester United marked their return to elite competition with a 3-0 victory over Swiss side Basel with Fellaini,Lukaku and Rashford all putting in the goals.

Paris Saint-Germain got their Champions League campaign off to a perfect start by beating Celtic 5-0 at Celtic Park. Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both scored, while Edinson Cavani bagged a double and Mikael Lustig added an unfortunate own goal.

Barcelona had a sweet revenge over last season finalist Juventus as a brace from on fire Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic gave the Catalans a 3-0 win.

Bayern Munich had the better of Anderlecht of Belgium with goals from Robert Lewandowski,Thiago Alcantara and Kimmich giving them a 3-0 victory.

In Greece, Portuguese side Sporting Lisboa survived a late surge from Greek champions Olympiakos to win 3-2.

In Portugal, CSKA Moscow came from a goal down to defeat Portuguese champions 2-1.

Let see if today’s matches will give us the same or double the entertainment we got yesterday.
