A first evening of the Champions League this season without any real surprises. Hosting Antwerp at the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona had no difficulty in winning very clearly (5-0) thanks in particular to achievements from Robert Lewandowski and a double from Joao Felix. In the same group, Porto surprised Donetsk (1-3). Title holders, Manchester City got a little scare by being led at the break by Red Star Belgrade, before perfectly rectifying the situation in the second half (3-1), but without a goal from Haaland.
In the clash of the evening between Lazio Rome and Atlético Madrid, victory almost went to the Colchoneros on a goal from Barrios in the 29th minute of play. But Lazio goalkeeper Provedel snatched the equalizer with a header at the last second (1-1). In the other Group E match, Feyenoord took the measure of Celtic Glasgow (2-0), who finished nine after two expulsions.
