Uefa champions league, Tuesday and Wednesday Match Day 2 round up.

Spartak Moscow 1 Liverpool
Another disappointing night for Liverpool in a dispiriting 1-1 UEFA Champions League draw at Spartak Moscow.

A game Liverpool dominated throughout at the Otkrytiye Arena, but settled for a point yet again after a disappointing draw against sevilla in the first game.

Coutinho grabbed his second goal in as many games, after Fernando's free-kick had put the home side in front.

Liverpool subsequently missed numerous good chances to take all 3 points but were unsucessful.
A disappointing day for the Reds.

Borussia Dortmund 1 Real Madrid 3:
Ronaldo with a double bang to seal win on his 400th appearance for Madrid.

Portugese Star, Cristiano Ronaldo marked his 400th Real Madrid appearance with a brace as the defending champions beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Ronaldo scored his 410th and 411th efforts for the club in his 150th appearance in a UEFA club match after Gareth Bale's opener in the 18th minute had put Madrid in front in what proved to be a thrilling encounter at Signal Iduna Park in Germany.

It was an end-to-end clash that featured chances for either side before Ronaldo celebrated his latest achievement with a composed finish from Bale's cross.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Dortmund hope of a recovery but Zinedine Zidane's men made certain of two wins from two in the defence of their trophy as Ronaldo blasted home in the closing stages.

APOEL 0 Tottenham 3: Kane scores a hat-trick in Cyprus.

England forward, Harry Kane continued his blistering form in front of goal with a hat-trick against APOEL on Tuesday.

The in-form England striker made this hat trick his ninth for the club overall and sixth in 2017.

Kane finish off after being set through by Toby Alderweireld in the 39th minute to break the deadlock, then Moussa Sissoko assisted the second after the break, after receiving a cut-back pass on the edge of the area, then a Kieran Trippier cross allowed Kane to head home the third in the 67th minute.

Despite being without suspended duo Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen, as well as Christian Eriksen - left at home due to illness - and the injured Mousa Dembele, the Premier League club found a way to record just a third away win in their last 12 European outings.

Manchester City 2 Shakhtar Donetsk 0:
Artist De Bruyne the man!.

Belgian midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne scored a wonderful goal to open his account for the season and help Manchester City earn a hard-fought 2-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk after the first half ended goaless while Sergio Aguero missed a penalty.

DeBruyne has been a creative force during City's terrific start to the season and he showed yet again his quality and eye for goal has not left him when he rattled the ball into the top-right corner of the net just at the start of the second half.

City tightened their grip on the game in the latter stages and Aguero missed the chance to equal Eric Brook's record of 177 goals for the club when he had a penalty saved by Andriy Pyatov in the 72nd minute, but substitute Raheem Sterling made it 2-0 when he applied a neat finish to a sweeping attacking move.
Paris Saint-Germain 3 Bayern Munich 0:
Indeed Money can buy goals!!.

Edinson Cavani and Neymar teamed up in emphatic style with a goal apiece as Unai Emery's side demolished the German champions' defence in a one-sided Group B encounter.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti, returning to his old club for the first time since guiding PSG to the title in 2012-13, saw his side punished for a slow start when Dani Alves opened the scoring in the second minute after a pass from Brazilian Neymar.

Cavani made it 2-0 after half an hour with his 10th goal in as many games and the result was put beyond doubt with just over an hour played when Neymar scored from close range against one of Europe's best sides, having won their opening Champions League clash 5-0 against Celtic.

CSKA Moscow 1 Manchester United 4: Lukaku scores brace as United remain unbeaten in Russia.

Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku continued his fine start to life at Manchester United with a double in their 4-1 win at CSKA Moscow.
The Russian aged defenders had no clue on how to handle Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with United having now netted seven times and conceded just once in their opening two Group A fixtures.

United's opener in the fourth minute as Lukaku powered home a bullet header after a cross from Martial.
Martial again was quickly in action himself from the penalty spot, before also assisting Lukaku's second of the night, with Mkhitaryan finding the target following another excellent work from Martial.
A late consolation from substitute Konstantin Kuchaev was the only blemish on a fine performance by united.

Atletico Madrid 1 Chelsea 2:
BatMan Batshuayi clinches it as Costa seemed pained.

Michy Batshuayi grabbed a stunning 2-1 win for Chelsea with the last kick of the game at the new Wanda Metropolitano arena.
Chelsea were behind when Antoine Griezmann scored Athletico first European goal at their new home from the penalty spot after a foul by David Luiz.

But Alvaro Morata headed home in the 59th-minute after a cross from Eden Hazard to bring the game back on level terms.
The game dragged on and on as Chelsea continued to trouble Athletico until the moment came at the last kick.
Instead of launching a free-kick into the area as the allotted period of injury time expired, Chelsea calmly worked possession around, with Marcos Alonso picking out substitute Batshuayi for a simple finish that left the watching Costa ashen faced.

Chelsea are top of the standings after back-to-back wins, two points clear of Roma.

Sporting CP 0 Barcelona 1:
Sebastian Coates own goal gives Barcelona all 3 points as they take charge of Group D.

Fc Barcelona of spain extended their winning run to eight games in all competitions on Wednesday as they edged past Portuguese side Sporting CP 1-0.

The only goal of the game came just four minutes into the second half, and despite Luis Suarez celebrating the goal, replays showed that the decisive final touch came from Sporting defender Sebastian Coates.

Bruno Fernandes had a wonderful opportunity to claim a share of the spoils for Sporting in the second half but was thwarted by Marc-Andre ter Stegen, as Barcelona held on for a deserved three points.

Other results on the night were:
Besiktas 2-0 RB Leipzig
Sevilla 3-0 Maribor
