MACCABI HAIFA 1-3 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN:

Paris Saint-Germain overcame an early scare to beat Maccabi Haifa 3-1 in the second matchday of the Champions League.

The opening goal was a wonderful finish from Tjarron Chery volleying home Dolev Hazizia’s pin-point cross with an outstretched left leg after 27 minutes.

The lead held until eight minutes before the break when Kylian Mbappe beat his man before drilling a ball into the six-yard box which fell for Lionel Messi to control on his thigh and then slot home.

The crucial goal came midway through the second-half when Mbappe raced onto Messi’s through-ball and finished with trademark precision inside the far corner.

With two minutes on the clock, Neymar latched onto a long pass from Marco Veratti and drilled home a low shot to rubber-stamp victory.

Chelsea 1-1 Salzburg

Potter’s tenure looked like getting off to a winning start against Salzburg when Raheem Sterling opened the scoring from Chelsea’s first shot on target early in the second half.

But Salzburg, who also held Milan last week and are now unbeaten in nine games in all competitions, hit back through Noah Okafor in the 75th minute to leave Potter and his players frustrated.

Chelsea dominated the opening 45 minutes in the first meeting between these sides, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mason Mount were wayward from the best of their chances.

The hosts were given a fright shortly before half-time when Benjamin Sesko forced Kepa Arrizabalaga into a low save from Salzburg’s only effort of the first half.

Chelsea have failed to win both of their opening two matches of a Champions League campaign for only a second time, and first since 1999-2000.

Manchester City 2-1 Borussia Dortmund

Erling Haaland came back to haunt his former club with a stunning acrobatic winner as Manchester City came from behind to earn a hard-fought 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund at the Etihad Stadium.

Haaland, who averaged over a goal per game in the Champions League during a two-year spell at Dortmund, met Joao Cancelo’s fine cross with a sensational backheeled volley to seal the hosts’ victory in the 84th minute.

City had appeared set for a surprise defeat when Jude Bellingham nodded Dortmund ahead after the break, only for John Stones’ long-range effort to beat Alexander Meyer for the leveller.

Having been kept quiet by Mats Hummels and Niklas Sule for the majority of the contest, the indomitable Haaland came good in sensational style late on to ensure City preserved their perfect start to their Champions League campaign.

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 21 UEFA Champions League home games, winning 19 and drawing two. It is the longest such unbeaten run by an English side in the competition since Chelsea also recorded a run of 21 between September 2006 and December 2009.
