A six-goal thriller
Well, we now know which is the best Champions League game so far this season. It was the 3-3 draw between Chelsea and Roma, where the Italian club battled back to take the lead before surrendering a late header to Eden Hazard.
The first half an hour was a tad "slow," but it gave us this amazing hit from David Luiz.
Then five goals were score from the 37th to the 75th minute. Chelsea went up 2-0 thanks to Eden Hazard, and then Roma stormed back with three goals in a half-hour stretch, with Edin Dzeko netting a brace. It was his equalizer that had people buzzing.
Dzeko then scored on a header from a set piece to put the Italian club back up 3-2, but it wasn't over -- Hazard connected on a Pedro cross to split the points.
What a game. Why do we have to wait two more weeks for UCL to return?
Neymar and PSG had no trouble at Anderlecht, and the Brazilian dazzled fans with an amazing free kick under the wall. Take a look:
That cheeky little man. A natural who makes it look so, so easy.
Mbappe makes history
Kylian Mbappe put PSG up on the road at Anderlecht with a fine goal from a tight angle, and in the process he made history. The French star became the highest goal scoring teenager in Champions League history with eight goals. And he has some time to make the mark. The 18-year-old's birthday is Dec. 20, meaning he'll get this entire UCL and the group stage of next year's edition to set the bar high.
Here's the record-setting goal:
What are you doing?
So Manchester United got that win on Benfica, but how it did it will shock you. A long free kick from Marcus Rashford fell into the hands of 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar, who walked into the goal with the ball, unintentionally. Yikes.
Lionel Messi scored his 100th European goal for Barcelona on Wednesday in the 3-1 win over Olympiacos, and it was a trademark Messi free kick. Here's the moment:
