Naples 0-0 Liverpool
The premiere is always complicated for the champion, on which there are many looks after having shined in the previous season. That was without a doubt the first obstacle that Liverpool had to overcome today. That and a Naples that at home is usually quite safe and reliable. In front, the reds arrived with morale through the clouds after their impeccable start in Premier League, their great challenge of the season. Y this led Jürgen Klopp to sign a large first half, which undoubtedly deserved more because the scoreboard did not move at that time. And that was not because of his offensive trident, which had great occasions. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané especially, were in danger but could not specify.
The second part, we saw instead how the reds suffered in excess, more than they deserved for the occasions of the first act. So the English first saw how Adrián San Miguel avoided the first Neapolitan goal with what can be the great stop of this tournament. Look at her if they have a chance tonight. But later the Italians, who waited for their moment, were able to prevail at the end with the goal of Dries Mertens, of penalty (‘), which was followed by the first target of Fernando Llorente de azzurro (‘) to execute the champion in his first defense of the title.

Ajax from Amsterdam 3-0 Lille
The great revelation during the last edition of the Champions faced the debut in the present campaign in the Old Continent in front of his faithful fans. Erik ten Hag's pupils were far superior to Lille since the initial beep of the referee, especially following the target materialized by Quincy Promes (1-0). Shortly after starting the second part, Edson Álvarez would be responsible for putting more land in favor of the interests of Ajax Amsterdam (2-0). And the win would be rounded off by a real gladiator like Nicolás Tagliafico (3-0), who is setting a great start to the 2019-2020 course.
Benfica 1-2 RB Leipzig
Timo Werner He continues to prove that he is a true predator of the area. It is, with its own merits, one of the main responsible for the momentary leadership of RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga. Further, He has been in charge of knocking out Benfica in Lisbon with a double, which allows the pupils directed by Julian Nagelsmann to add the first 3 points of the course in the group stage of the Champions League. Haris Seferović, old acquaintance of our League (Real Sociedad), made up the result in the decisive stretch of the contest. The local parish relied until the last moment on the possibility of saving a point, but would leave empty-handed.
Salzburg 6-2 Genk
Total madness in Austria. The seemingly inconsequential Red Bull Salzburg – Belgian Racing Genk has left us all an offensive torrent that can speak well of the Austrian attack but equally bad of the Belgian defense. Of course, it has served to discover internationally a forward of the future such as Haland, author of 3 goals (2 ’, 34’ and 45 ’) with which he liquidated his rival today. He was accompanied by Hwang (36 ’), who helped settle the duel in the first half, and Szoboszlai (47’) and Ulmer (66 ’) already in the second act. A madness in which visitors also scored two goals.
