Champions League round-up

Bayern Munich secured a 2-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League to ruin Robert Lewandowski’s return to his old side.

Following a goalless first half, Julian Nagelsmann’s men turned it on early in the second period with Hernandez heading home Joshua Kimmich’s corner before fine play by Jamal Musiala set up Sane to fire home in the 54th minute to keep Bayern at the summit after 2 matches.

Earlier in the day in the group, Edin Dzeko inspired Inter Milan to a 2-0 victory at Viktoria Plzen as Dzeko also gave the assist to Denzel Dumfries to wrap up the points in the 70th minute.

Joel Matip was the unlikely hero to get Liverpool’s European campaign back on track as his 89th minute header secured a laboured 2-1 win over Ajax in Group A.

After Jurgen Klopp declared their 4-1 loss in Napoli a “horror show”, a response was required at Anfield and Mohamed Salah’s opener helped settle any tension but the Dutch outfit equalised before half-time by Mohammed Kudus.

In Group D, Tottenham conceded two goals in injury time to slip to a 2-0 defeat at Sporting Lisbon.

Frankfurt joined Spurs on three points after they claimed a 1-0 win in Marseille.

Atletico Madrid were on the receiving end of a late show at Bayer Leverkusen in Group B.

The La Liga side had struck twice in stoppage time to beat Porto last week but saw Robert Andrich and Moussa Diaby net in the final six minutes of the encounter in Germany to secure a 2-0 win.
