Copenhagen was doomed at the Etihad, the advantage of Pep Guardiola’s City was colossal – in the first half only, the ratio of shots was 18:0 (9 accurate), of which three goals were scored, two by Erling Haaland, thus he beat Luis Suarez and Rivaldo (27-27 goal) surpassed the number of goals in the league, he would have scored the third, if not for the unlucky ricochet of the Georgian defender, Davit Khocholava.
Pep replaced the Norwegian at the break, but City managed to score two more goals – 5:0. After the first round, Copenhagen has only 1 point (like Sevilla).
The main surprise of the day was recorded in the match between Benfica and PSG. French giant Leo Messi advanced, but with Danilo’s own goal, PSG lost two points. At the end of the match, there was a small confrontation between the players. PSG and Benfica have 7 points each. Juventus scored the first three points, Adrien Rabiot scored a double, and Angel Di Maria scored a hat trick of assists.
Chelsea easily beat Milan, Real didn’t have any problems either, but Shakhtar kept the intrigue of the match until the end with Zubkov’s excellent goal.
