  1. Magnificent Mbappe

    Club Bruges 0-5 Paris Saint Germain

    Paris St-Germain

    Second-half substitute Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick as Paris St-Germain defeated Club Bruges 5-0 to take a big step towards the Champions League knockout stage.

    The France forward became the youngest player to score 15 goals in the competition at 20 years and 306 days.

    He watched from the bench as loan signing Mauro Icardi swept home Angel di Maria's cross to give the French champions a seventh-minute lead.

    Mbappe was brought on in the 52nd minute and scored nine minutes later when he headed past ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

    The French striker set up Icardi for his second before he made it 4-0 by converting Di Maria's cross.

    He completed his hat-trick seven minutes from time when he provided the finishing touch to a brilliant team move.

    Coach Thomas Tuchel's side now need only a point from their Group A home match against Bruges in November to secure their passage.

  2. Lewandowski > Messi and Ronaldo?

    Every club wants a 20-goals-a-season striker but not many get one who has that many before it is even Halloween.

    Bayern Munich have.

    Robert Lewandowski scored twice as the Bundesliga giants beat Olympiakos 3-2 in the Champions League on Tuesday, taking the Poland international's tally for club and country in 2019-20 to an incredible 21 goals in just 17 games.

    The 31-year-old's scintillating form has prompted many on social media to ask the question: is he the best number nine in the world right now?

    We looked at the evidence here.

  3. Champions League victory restores confidence - Poch

    Spurs 5-0 Red Star Belgrade

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Poch says he will "give 200%" to deliver the results Spurs fans expect, after winning just four of 13 fixtures in all competitions this season.

    He said: "Of course now is a tough situation. We are a club and that commitment that we showed in the past, we are now showing.

    "I need to work every day 200% to try to provide the result they expect."

    The home supporters repeatedly chanted their manager's name during Tuesday's emphatic win despite a dismal start to the season which has seen his position come under increasing scrutiny.

    "I say thank you, I want to be grateful with them," Pochettino said of Tottenham's fans. "I think the same love is in both ways. I feel that they love me and I think they need to feel that I love them too.

    "But I think always the most important is the team, the players are the principal actors and always I am here to help the club and help them to be happy, like it was the previous season."

  15. Foden 'will learn', says Guardiola

    Man City 5-1 Atalanta

    Manchester City

    Guardiola emphatically ruled out punishing Foden for his red card, the first of his fledgling career, instead focusing on his impressive performance in midfield before he was sent off.

    "Will I fine him? Absolutely not," Guardiola said. "I have never fined a player except for when they did stupid things but for this part of the game, absolutely not. Maybe I should pay him, because of how well he played.

    "The important thing with Phil is not the red card, it is the way he played. We know it - he can do it - and he played so good, at a high level.

    "Now he will know after having one yellow card that he has to be more careful for the second but this experience is good and it is going to help him.

    "People say 'you have to play him more minutes, more minutes'. Yes I want him to play but there are still things like this where he is far away from David Silva, Ilkay Gundogan or Kevin de Bruyne.

    "He will learn. He has to live this kind of situation to understand that, with a yellow card, he has to be careful. Because the result was 5-1 it was OK, but if the score is 2-1 or 3-2 it can be difficult."

  16. City still have defensive difficulties

    Man City 5-1 Atalanta

    Manchester City

    Earlier this week Guardiola called on his side to be more clinical in front of goal if they are to go deep into the competition this season, but it is their displays at the back that should be a more pressing concern.

    Although he had two centre-halves on his bench in the shape of Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, Guardiola opted to play with three at the back against Atalanta, with a converted midfielder, Fernandinho, at the heart of his new-look backline and Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy on either side.

    Rodri and Gundogan were supposed to give protection in the centre of midfield but the experiment did not work, with Atalanta finding all sorts of space down both flanks.

    By the time the Italian side took the lead, City had already survived one scare when Robin Gosens escaped down the left and Timothy Castagne headed over from six yards.

    A better team would have punished City, and Guardiola must go back to the drawing board to find the answer at the back, while any absence to Rodri will also give him a problem to solve in midfield.

  17. Foden sees red

    Man City 5-1 Atalanta

    Manchester City

    Phil Foden, making only his second start of the season, saw red eight minutes from time after being booked for dragging back Marten de Roon as he shaped to shoot.

    The 19-year-old's first yellow card had come six minutes earlier when he tangled with Malinovskyi in midfield, and appeared harsh.

    It remains to be seen how serious Rodri's injury is, but Guardiola showed his frustration as John Stones prepared to replace him, slamming the back of one of the seats in his dugout.

    He did have some good news, however. Shakhtar Donetsk's draw with Dinamo Zagreb earlier on Tuesday means a win in Italy when these two sides meet again on 6 November will seal City's progress to the last 16 for a seventh successive year.
