UEFA Champions League review


Matchday round-up;

Liverpool Vs Genk;

An overdue away win at Genk for Klopp’s side, who had won just once in seven away group-stage matches before this trip.They went all the way last season despite losing all three away group games.Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dejan Lovren and Naby Keita all started for a Liverpool side deprived of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip in defence, while Salah returned after missing the Manchester United clash. A brace from Oxlade-Chamberlain who opened the scoring from Liverpool’s first attempt, his right-foot strike from 25 yards finding the bottom-left corner.It was not their last of the night, as Salah slipped in Mane to make it 3-0 on 77 minutes.Salah then controlled a Mane pass with his back to goal, turned and slotted in with three minutes left. Before Odey’s consolation for Genk moments later.Another Liverpool win when these teams meet at Anfield next month will leave them on the brink of the last 16.

Inter Milan Vs Borussia Dortmund;

Goals from Lautaro Martinez and Antonio Candreva helped Inter Milan register a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund, in what was largely a tight affair. Borussia Dortmund had more of the ball, but weren’t able to penetrate the Inter Milan defence. The Nerazzurri were disciplined and patient throughout the 90 minutes, and hurt Lucien Favre’s side on the counter attack.The result means that Borussia Dortmund are now level with Inter Milan on four points, with Barcelona clear on top with seven points. The two sides meet again in two weeks’ time at the Westfalenstadion.
