The return of the Champions League- only one goalless draw in the eight games played

By | September 12, 2017

The Champions League returned to our screens earlier this evening (who doesn’t love the feel of that anthem!). There were goals galore in the games today, which saw European football return to Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford. Chelsea hammered Qarabag 6-0, while United ran out 3-0 winners over Basel.

Only one of the eight games played was goalless and that was the fixture at the Olimpico between AS Roma and Atletico Madrid.

Of the eight games played, only two games (both involving Portuguese teams) saw the away team score!
