UCL Match Day 2 Report: Barca Lost, Blues Win, City Denied
Despite Xavi Hernandez making history as he took to the pitch of the Parc Des Princes on Tuesday with the most appearances — 143 — in the Champions League proper, the illustrious midfielder couldn’t help as his team lost to Paris Saint German.
PSG were without their talisman, Ibrahimovic as well as Lavezzi and Thiago Silva but managed to see off their Spanish opposition.

A record-breaking goal from Francesco Totti ensured Roma earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Sergio Aguero opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the Etihad Stadium following a rash challenge from former City player Maicon, but Totti’s 23rd-minute strike—which, at 38, made him the oldest goalscorer in the history of the Champions League—eventually proved enough to secure a point for Rudi Garcia’s team.
Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Paris St-Germain went top of their Champions Leagues groups on Wednesday with valuable victories in the second round of matches.
Bayern won 1-0 win at CSKA Moscow, Chelsea prevailed by the same score at Sporting Lisbon, PSG edged Barcelona 3-2 in the most eventful match of the night.
Bayern’s goal in Moscow came in the 22nd minute when Thomas Mueller calmly converted a penalty after CSKA’s Mario Fernandes had recklessly pulled down Mario Goetze in the area.
Nemanja Matic only goal was enough to give Chelsea the much needed three points away to Sporting after kicking of their Champions League campaign in a disappointing way.
Meanwhile, Porto went top of Group H with a late 2-2 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk, thanks to an injury-time equalizer from Jackson Martinez.
Porto have four points, BATE Borisov – who beat bottom team Athletic Bilbao 2-1 – have three, Shakhtar have two and Bilbao just one.
