Jota, a name to remember in Liverpool
In Liverpool, the spotlight is often on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané or Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian artist had given way to Diogo Jota. And this defector from Wolves landed this summer should quickly enter hearts with services of this type since he was the big man of this match with a hat-trick: a first goal with finesse (16th), a second with force (33rd) and a third with opportunism and speed (54th). In the meantime, the irresistible Salah (47th) and Mané (49th) were in charge of protecting Liverpool against a decidedly too naive Atalanta. The English champion continues his rider alone in front of Ajax, winner of Midtjylland (2-1), who will have to fight for second place with Bergamo.
Bayern continue their flawless performance
In group A, another European monster offered himself a box. And yet, we believed that Bayern would stumble to the end against a valiant team from RB Salzburg. It was not until the last quarter of an hour to see the reigning champion forcing the Austrian lock before threading the goals like pearls. Lewandowski (21st, 88th) got his double in this match where Boateng (79th), Sané (83rd) and world champion Lucas Hernandez (90th) also scored. The final score, undoubtedly too heavy for Salzburg, is final: 6-2. With a CSC as a bonus. Bayern therefore continues their flawless performance with three wins in as many games, ahead of Atlético de Madrid, hung by Lokomotiv Moscow (1-1) and still disappointing.
In group C, that of OM, the hierarchy is well established. And the boss is Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side did not tremble at all to bring down Olympiakos in a one-sided encounter. Ferran Torres, decidedly very prolific (12th), Gabriel Jesus (80th) and Joao Cancelo (90th) found the net. In favorable waiver, City is followed by Porto. Olympiakos is one step ahead of OM, dead last … Finally, in Group B, while Real Madrid defeated Inter Milan (3-2), Borussia Mönchengladbach impressed on Shakhtar Donetsk’s lawn by offering themselves a large victory 6-0 thanks to the French striker Alassane Pléa, author of a resounding treble. A job well done.
