PSG, Manchester City, Haaland, Champions League, Nantes, World Judo… Today’s set

What not to miss between last night and this morning

1. Soccer – Champions League: First hook in C1 for PSG

Paris could not bring better than a point from Lisbon, where it was shaken in sequence by Benfica (1-1), without everything being thrown to the ground, far from it. Danilo Pereira’s own goal gave the hosts an equalizer after Lionel Messi’s brilliant opening goal. PSG leads Group H, with two wins and a draw for the same number of points as their rival (7), which they will receive in less than a week.

2. Soccer – Champions League: City and Haaland take a walk, Rabiot and Di Maria have fun

In the rest of the afternoon’s matches, Manchester City and the machine Erling Haaland, who scored two goals in the first half, continued their start-of-the-season cannonade against Copenhagen (5-0). What to question the opposing goalkeeper about the nature of the Norwegian striker: is he really human?
We will also remember Juventus’ victory against Haifa (3-1) thanks to two goals from Adrien Rabiot and three assists from Angel Di Maria. Also noteworthy is Chelsea’s victory against AC Milan (3-0), with a goal… and an injury to Wesley Fofana. Real Madrid is very close to qualifying after its victory against Shakhtar (2-1).

3. Handball – Champions League: Nantes continues

Nantes confirmed their good start to the season by crushing Slovenian club Celje (35-24) on matchday 4 of the group stage. This is the third success in a row for Nantes, who temporarily take the lead of their group. Ivan Pesic and his 13 saves allowed the Habs to build an ever-increasing lead in the second half (20-14 at halftime).
