Champions League Group Stage Round Up After Two Matchdays

The 2021-22 Champions League group stage has already given us a few premium moments that have been enthralling to witness. Two matchdays have passed and all the groups are shaping up really nicely for a grand climax.

Let’s take a quick look at how the different clubs have fared so far in the competition in their respective groups.

 

GROUP A

PSG: 4 | Club Brugge: 4 | Man City: 3 | RB Leipzig: 0

The group that was referred to as the ‘group of death’ is living up to its expectations. PSG currently sit on the top but they won’t be too comfortable with that position just yet. Behind them is Club Brugge who were the underdogs in this group. They got a well-deserved draw at Paris on the first matchday and are looking good with four points.

Man City are currently third but they surely won’t finish there. Leipzig has been disappointing so far as they sit dead last with no points.

 

GROUP B

Liverpool: 6 | Atletico Madrid: 4 | Porto: 1 | AC Milan: 0

Liverpool have endured the perfect start to the Champions League season with two wins in two matches. Atletico got a lucky draw in the second matchday against Milan and are currently second.

Porto earned a good draw in their first matchday in Madrid but their performance was shambolic in the second match against Liverpool. AC Milan are the unlucky side in this group as they have played much better than what their points tally shows.

 

GROUP C

Ajax: 6 | Dortmund: 6 | Besiktas: 0 | Sporting: 0

Group C is shaping up exactly how people would have predicted before the start. Ajax and Dortmund have had the perfect start and both have six points each.

However, Besiktas and Sporting both are yet to get off the mark.

 

GROUP D

Sheriff: 6 | Real Madrid: 3 | Inter Milan: 1 | Shakhtar: 1

This is the group that has given us the most exciting news so far in the Champions League. There is certainly a new sheriff in European football and that is the team from Moldova, Sheriff Tiraspol. They started with a win against Shakhtar but what happened in the second matchday was history.

 The team that is playing their first Champions League season won against the team that won the most titles in the competition – Real Madrid. The other two sides, Inter Milan and Shakhtar both have a point each.

 

GROUP E

Bayern: 6 | Benfica: 4 | Dynamo Kyiv: 1 | Barcelona: 0

Bayern have found it easy in group E but the team who has shocked everyone with their performances has been Ronald Koeman’s FCBarcelona. The Spanish team is winless in the Champions League so far. Portuguese side Benfica have had a decent start with four points to their name while Dynamo Kyiv have a single point with them.

 

GROUP F

Atlanta: 4 | Young Boys: 3 | Man United: 3 | Villarreal: 1

Group F has so far given us some intriguing battles and moments involving Manchester United. The first matchday saw them lose to Switzerland based club Young Boys with the last kick of the match. In their second matchday, they won with the last kick of the game courtesy of a goal by their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

Atlanta so far are quietly leading the group with four points from two matches. Villarreal are struggling to score goals this season and it is showing in the Champions League as well, as they sit last with just a point.

 

GROUP G

RB Salzburg: 4 | Sevilla: 2 | Wolfsburg: 2 | Lille: 1

Group G is still pretty open though RB Salzburg would be happy with the way they have started their campaign in the Champions League. They sit atop with four points and are followed by Sevilla and Wolfsburg with two points each. French champions Lille have had a disappointing start with one draw and one defeat.

 

GROUP H

Juventus: 5 | Chelsea: 3 | Zenit: 3 | Malmo: 0

European champions Chelsea would have been expected to lead the group but interestingly Juventus have done a job over them. Juventus are top with five points and are followed by Chelsea and Russian side Zenit who have one win each. Malmo are still to register a point on the table.
