Champions League: Inter takes the best of Barça, Naples is a hit and Bruges surprises… what to remember from the evening


Barça is in bad shape in its Champions League group after its loss (1-0) this Tuesday against Inter Milan (1-0). Napoli continues

A new festival of goals (24) and spectacle on all grounds.

The eight matches of the first evening of this third day of the Champions League group stage, which were played on Tuesday evening, including the great success of OM against Sporting (4-1), held their promises.

Here are the highlights:

The performance: Naples largely wins at Ajax (1-6)

And if it was the year of Naples?

Luciano Spalletti's men are having a breathtaking start to the season both in the league and in the Champions League.

Unbeaten leader of Serie A (6 wins and 2 draws), the Neapolitans largely won this Tuesday at Ajax Amsterdam (1-6).

In a difficult group, the Italians are in the lead after two more cards against Rangers (0-3) and Liverpool (4-1).

The 4-3-3 tactical scheme with its attacking trio Kvaratskheila - Raspadori - Lozano sparkles.

In the middle, the Cameroonian André-Frank Zambo Anguissa has been transformed since his stints at OM then Fulham.

It's the heart of the team!

Tanguy Ndombelé was the decisive passer on the last goal.

The box: Bayern thrashes Viktoria Plzen (5-0)

After two convincing successes at the expense of Inter (0-2) and Barcelona (2-0), Bayern Munich walked on Tuesday against the Czechs of Viktoria Plzen (5-0).

Leroy Sané scored twice and former Parisian Éric Maxim Choupo-Moting added to the score late in the game.

Among the Habs, only Dayot Upamecano was a starter.

He was replaced in the last quarter of an hour by Benjamin Pavard.

The young Mathys Tel, who arrived from Rennes during the off-season, entered on the hour mark in place of Sané.

Lucas Hernandez and Kingsley Coman are recovering.

The poster: Inter mates Barça (1-0)

In bad shape in the league (9th), Inter Milan recorded a precious success against FC Barcelona thanks to a long shot from the Turkish Hakan Calhanoglu at the end of the first period.

Behind Bayern, the Interists occupy 2nd place in qualifying group C for the round of 16.

Barça, defeated twice during the first leg, no longer has a joker and will undoubtedly have to achieve a faultless course in the last 3 games to validate its place among the 16 best teams of the Old Continent.

A 3rd place, qualifying for the play-off round in the Europa League, would clearly be a failure given the investments made this summer with the arrival of goleador Robert Lewandowski.

The surprise: FC Bruges triumphs over Atlético de Madrid (2-0)

Even if this team had mistreated PSG during the first pool match (1-1) of the previous edition, few people before the start of the competition would have bet on the presence of Club Brugge in the round of 16.

This Tuesday evening, the Belgian formation overcame a European tenor, Atlético de Madrid (2-0).

She is even at the top of group B at the end of the first phase with 3 successes.

Arrived during the FC Barcelona off-season, the Spaniard Ferran Jutgla achieves feats with his new team by already totaling 8 goals in all competitions.

Among the people of Madrid, Griezmann, holder, missed a penalty.

His powerful shot hit the crossbar of Belgian goalkeeper Mignolet.
