    Benfica Lisbon convinces at Juventus Turin. Chelsea are still not getting going. SSC Napoli confidently wins in Glasgow.

    For Roger Schmidt, the impressive winning streak with Benfica Lisbon continued on Wednesday (09/14/2022) in the Champions League. The new coach also won his twelfth competitive game with the Portuguese at Juventus Turin 2-1 (1-1) and is getting closer and closer to the club record (15 wins in a row).

    Arkadiusz Milik scored for the Italians after four minutes. João Mário (43’/penalty) and David Neres (55′) turned the game around for Benfica. Juventus, on the other hand, is already under pressure with zero points.

    With six points, the Schmidt-Elf is at the top of Group H together with Paris Saint-Germain. The French had big problems in the 3-1 (1-1) win at Maccabi Haifa. Superstar Lionel Messi (37th), who scored in 18 consecutive seasons in the premier class, Kylian Mbappé (69th) and Neymar (88th) were successful for the star ensemble.

    Chelsea short of expectations

    Even without Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea will not get going. In the competitive debut of successor Graham Potter, the Premier League club only drew 1-1 (0-0) against Austrian title holders RB Salzburg.

    Raheem Sterling (48th minute) gave the Blues the lead, Noah Okafor (76th) equalized. Chelsea fell short of expectations with a point after opening 1-0 at Dinamo Zagreb.

    In the Dortmund group, FC Copenhagen drew 0-0 against FC Sevilla. Both teams got a point after two matchdays.

    McGregor saves two penalties

    In a curious game, SSC Napoli won 3-0 (0-0) at Glasgow Rangers and got their second win in the second match in the Liverpool group. Matteo Politano (68th penalty), Giacomo Raspadori (85th) and Tanguy Ndombélé (90th + 1) scored for the Italians.

    Rangers keeper Allan McGregor previously saved two penalties from Naples attacker Piotr Zielinski (60′). The first saved try was replayed because McGregor moved off the goal line too early. But the 40-year-old veteran was also able to fend off the second penalty.

    AC Milan don’t give Zagreb a chance

    AC Milan beat Dinamo Zagreb in the second group match of the Champions League. The Italian champions AC Milan defeated Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 (1-0) and celebrated their first win.

    French world champion Olivier Giroud (45th minute, penalty kick), Alexis Saelemaekers (47th) and Tommaso Pobega (77th) scored for Milan. Zagreb came through Mislav Orsic (56th) to the interim 1: 2.

    Donetsk has to catch up

    Shakhtar Donetsk missed the next three in the Champions League. The top Ukrainian club came up against in Warsaw Celtic Glasgow not beyond a 1:1 (1:1).

    Celtic took the lead in the Polish capital, where Donetsk plays its home games because of the Russian war of aggression, through an own goal from Artem Bondarenko (11′). The strong Mychajlo Mudryk (30th) equalized. It was Glasgow’s first point in Group F after losing 3-0 to defending champions Real Madrid.
