Champions League Matchday 1 is officially in the books. We had eight more matches to take in yesterday and that slate brought some pretty surprising results. Let’s jump straight into a few of the day’s bigger takeaways below, and you can check out highlights from all of the action here.

  • Shakhtar shocks Real Madrid: In the most stunning scoreline of the day, Shakhtar pulled off a 3-2 win over Real Madrid in their UCL opener despite the roster being hit hard by coronavirus. The Ukranian club jumped out to a 3-0 advantage before very nearly blowing that lead, but they held on to beat one of the best teams in the tournament and put the rest of the field on notice. With speedy counters and solid defense, this success could be sustainable
  • Bayern poised to repeat: It was a really strong debut for Bayern Munich and… is anyone really surprised? They’ve been the most dominant team in the world this year and they look poised to repeat as Champions League title-winners. They crushed Atletico Madrid 4-0 on Wednesday and didn’t even get any goals from their biggest names.

Liverpool and Manchester City also picked up wins and three points in their respective group stage openers, so it was a pretty decent day for some of the bigger clubs on the circuit. That is, of course, with the exception of Real Madrid… or should we say Fraud Madrid? Nailed it. Owned. They’ll never recover from that burn.
In all seriousness, Madrid could be in real trouble. They’ve lost four of their last seven UCL home matches and now their backs are up against the wall already. They’ve dropped 19 spots all the way down to No. 25 on Roger Gonzalez’s updated UCL Power Rankings.
