"When the team functions well we all play better".

The leading match of this night's schedule was between Barcelona and Juventus. Stephan Lichtsteiner played at right-back on Saturday but has not made the final Champions League squad, meaning that former Milan defender Mattia De Sciglio could be handed a start.

New signing Ousmane Dembele was handed a first Barcelona start at the Camp Nou but it was Messi who got the opening goal on the stroke of half-time after a brilliant exchange of passes with Luis Suarez. Messi helped make it 2-0 in the 56th when his unsafe low cross was cleared by substitute Stefano Sturaro back to Rakitic, who fired it home.

Real Sociedad are the only other side with a 100 percent record after the Basque side won 4-2 away to Deportivo la Coruna to go to the top of the table.

"Starting with three wins and conceding none is something that hadn't happened for years".

The English champions Chelsea welcomed the rookies from Azerbaijan, Qarabag with 6 goals in their net, 6-0.

Barcelona might have lost one of their superstars, Neymar, over the summer and the MSN have become a thing of the past, but they are still a side known for their fluid style, which can trouble any team in the world.

"Obviously they have this player who can change every game but we had to do better in the second half". Atletico Madrid and Roma were involved in a goalless draw in Group C. We have seen a fierce fight, but unfortunately, there were no goals. And they humiliated them at the legendary Ibrox Park, with 0-5.

The Parisians' victory was powered by an attacking masterclass from its trio of superstar strikers: Neymar, Mbappe, and Edinson Cavani all scored first half goals to end Celtics' hope for a result early. The 23-year-old's performance was instrumental for Juve to overcome Barca last season, and Allegri will be looking to him to deliver the goods on enemy territory, this time. But we have to say that they were not convincing as they should be.

From the Group D, Barcelona looking for their sixth competition win after their five and especially on the recent win in 2015. Thanks in large part to Lionel Messi, that total was matched in the 2017-18 edition of the competition after only one match, or 69 minutes to be precise.
