Arsenal fell to a surprise two goals to one loss to Dinamo Zagreb in their Group F game. Gunners striker, Olivier Giroud, was red carded after his second bookable offence leaving the gunners to finish the game with 10 men. In another game, Chelsea got a morale boosting four nil victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv. Bayern Munich were three nil winners over Olympiacos while Bayer Leverkusen scored four against BATE Borisov to win by four goals to one. Roma drew against Barcelona, Dynamo Kyiv drew with Porto, Gent also drew against Lyon while Zenith St Petersburg defeated Valencia by three goals to two.
The result shows English clubs are still battling for relevance in Europe as only Chelsea won their opening match. Recall both Manchester teams lost last night.
German clubs are off to a flying start with Bayern, Leverkusen and Wolfsburg all winning their opening matches with only Monchengladbach losing, Italian clubs are yet to lose while Spanish clubs have one win and two losses.
