UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | SPANISH FOOTBALL CLUB RESULTS

UEFA Champions League 2017-2018 kicked off tonight with Group matches that had two of the four Spanish Football Clubs represented. 

FC Barcelona vs Juventus FC Champions League Group D

FC Barcelona hosted Juventus FC in their Group D game & Barça won 3 - 0 comfortably. The Italians have reinforced their team with Costa & Matuidi but were disappointing overall tonight. Dybala failed to break lines & did not impress, Higuain was neutralizad & ineffective, while the only bright light was Pjanic in the 1ºst half & the Frenchman Matuidi who is definitely a powerhouse player.

Goal against Juventus FC

The protagonist & the game breaker was Lionel Messi who was again superb. The Argentine took the team on his shoulders & scored two goals & was involved directly in the third. Apart he hit the woodwork during the match which could have added to his goal tally.

Goals:

  • Messi 45th min, 1 - 0
  • Rakitic 56th min, 2 - 0
  • Messi 69th min, 3 - 0
Excellent start for Barça in the competition who look favourite to finish top of the Group, while Juventus has to show more than what was offered tonight.

Roma vs At Madrid

Atletico de Madrid travelled to AC Roma for their Group C game which finished in a 0 - 0 draw result. Entertaining match which only lacked goals.

At. Madrid vs Roma

In fact Atletico put on show a marvellous performance the whole 90 mins & deserved a victory result. However, the lack of goal, or better said some incredible missed goal opportunities "robbed" the Spanish Club of a positive result. Said this, the best player for AC Roma was their goalkeeper Alisson who made some outstanding match saving stops!

AC Roma also had their great moments during the 1ºst half but Atletico managed the situation well during the Italian storm.

Great performance from Atletico midfielder Saul, who missed a golden goal opportunity that blemished a brilliant night. Vietto & Correa also missed chances which was the "tonic" of the night for At.Madrid.


Tomorrow, Champions League continues with Real Madrid & Sevilla FC in action.
