Liverpool fight to a Champions League victory, Messi ignites PSG, and Vinicius shines in Real Madrid’s rout of Barcelona

PSG came from behind to defeat RB Leipzig by the same score in an action-packed night of Champions League action on Tuesday. Liverpool held off an Atletico Madrid comeback to win 3-2, and Lionel Messi scored twice as PSG came from behind to defeat Atletico Madrid by the same score.

As for the other games, Karim Benzema scored for Real Madrid in their 5-0 win against Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine on the day of his trial in France for complicity in blackmail. Benzema is facing accusations of complicity in blackmail and has been charged with complicity in blackmail.

Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium was the scene of most of the night’s action, with Mohamed Salah scoring another spectacular goal after twisting and turning away from a series of Atletico players before his drive deflected in off James Milner to put them ahead.

Naby Keita increased Liverpool’s advantage with a spectacular strike, but Atletico responded with two goals from French star Antoine Griezmann to enthuse the home fans.

Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann was sent off for a high kick in the face of Roberto Firmino, just as the team seemed to be on top.

A thrilling game was settled by a penalty in the 78th minute when Salah sent Jan Oblak the wrong way after Mario Hermoso shoved Diogo Jota. It was a fantastic end to an exciting game. With his 31st Champions League goal, the Egyptian has surpassed Steven Gerrard to become the club’s all-time leading scorer in the tournament.

When the referee reviewed the video assistant’s report, he determined that Jota had not fouled Jose Maria Gimenez, resulting in a thrilling finale for Atletico.

Premier League coach Jurgen Klopp spoke to BT Sport after his team’s 2-1 victory against Manchester City. “We played a very good second half in a difficult game with aggressive football from both sides,” Klopp said.

The Reds are in first place in Group B after three victories from three games, while Atletico Madrid are even on four points with Porto, who defeated AC Milan 1-0 in the Portuguese capital.

PSG came from behind to defeat RB Leipzig 3-2 at the Parc des Princes, with Messi scoring twice and Kylian Mbappe shining, although the latter missed a penalty late in the game.

However, an RB Leipzig team that had been beaten 6-3 by Manchester City earlier in the tournament held their own against the Qatar-backed club.

With goals from Edin Dzeko, Arturo Vidal, and Stefan de Vrij, Sheriff clinched a 3-0 victory against the Moldovans, maintaining their grip on first place in Group D despite having the same amount of points as Real.
