It was indeed a night of wins and good result for the English side, as Pep Guardiola’s men faced an organized and determined visiting Napoli who suffered their first defeat in all competitions this season in the hands of Manchester City.
The 2-1 win for Pep Guardiola’s men against Napoli means City are unbeaten in their last eleven matches in all competitions, and go on top of the Group with the maximum nine points and are trailed by Napoli.
Tottenham Compels Madrid To 1-1 Draw
Far in the Spanish capital, the defending champions Madrid were forced to a 1-1 draw by Tottenham, who would be proud to get such result against their host and a defending champion who set record by becoming the first club to win the champions league back-to-back.
The away 1-1 draw takes Tottenham to top of the Group with seven points though tied on points and goal difference with their hosts, the away goal however makes the difference. But teams will necessarily have to win convincingly in their next match to decide who will maintain the top spot.
Liverpool Bury Maribor Before Their Home Crowd
In Slovenia, it was a different story entirely as Liverpool who have failed to record a victory in their first two champions league matches feasted on Maribor right before their home crowd, thrashing their host 7-0.
The win drags Liverpool to the top of the table with five points. Though they share the same points with Spartak Moscow who defeated Sevilla 5-1, but the seven goals recorded was enough to keep the English side on top of the Group.
