Sports News of Wednesday, 19 September 2018
Hello good evening welcome to the 2nd day of the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League. Last night, Liverpool and PSG produced an amazing game to remind all of us why we miss Europe’s foremost club competition.
Messi was also at his mesmerizing best as Barcelona swept aside PSV in one of the other games last night.
Today, there are equally exciting games to look forward to.
How do you follow a coach like Zinedine Zidane? That is the question Julen Lopetegui must ask himself as the new Real Madrid coach attempts to add a fourth Champions League in a row to the Bernabeu trophy cabinet.
Zidane won the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Champions League tournaments before departing in the summer, and Lopetegui has been tasked with following in the Frenchman's footsteps - starting with a Group G clash against Roma.
Real lost their perfect La Liga record at the weekend as they fought from behind to secure a 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao, and Roma may fancy their chances of causing a shock on Spanish soil after reaching last season's semi-finals.
