Real undergo the Sheriff’s law
Real Madrid were expected to make short work of Sheriff Tiraspol, a C1 novice, especially after the merengue club’s start to the season. But at the break, the observation was terrible for the supporters of the Madrid club. Real, yet clearly domineering (13 shots against 2), were led to the score following the only attempt on target by the champion of Moldova. Lonely Yakhshiboev opened the scoring in the 25th minute alone following a winning cross header following a cross from the left. Real would equalize in the second half through his gentleman, Karim Benzema, from a penalty shortly after the hour mark. Madrid insisted and Rodrygo struck over after a good action ten minutes from time. it was the Sheriff who won the victory with a 90th-minute goal from Thill, who surprised Real at home!
Milan joined on the end
Signing a very nice first half in front of a crowd delighted to find the C1 after seven years of scarcity, AC Milan opened the scoring by Leao in the 20th minute, a winning cross strike low to the ground which rewarded the Lombards with their good start. Lombards who would nevertheless lose Frank Kessie, expelled after two warnings, at the half-hour mark of play. Milan alit hold in the second act, showing great solidarity. So much so that Madrid’s possession proved futile until the 84th minute and the liberating goal for the Colchoneros signed Antoine Griezmann, from the left, following a receding ball signed by Lodi. Luis Suarez would then allow the Matelassiers to win with a successful penalty at the very end of the game.
Liverpool win in Porto
A Liverpool clearly superior to its opponent of the evening – in this case, FC Porto – went to impose themselves with the manner on the grounds of the Lusitanian club. At rest, the Reds led 2-0, Salah and Mané making two mistakes of the local defense bear fruit. Opposite, Porto had a hard time worrying Alisson. In the second act, Costa, the Portuguese doorman, was requested by Diogo Jota and answered present. He would nevertheless end up opening the floodgates in the face of repeated assaults by the Reds. Salah would thus offer himself a double on the hour mark, before Firmino also scored twice. 5-1, final score, the Reds do not go into detail.
