The first round of UEFA Champions League happened and the four Germans had a good start on the European competition. The Bundesliga Champions, Bayer Munich, and Borussia Dortmund were able to win their debut matches, even playing away. Schalke – who were playing at home – and Hoffenheim finished the round with a draw.

Bayern Munich players

On Wednesday, for Group E, Bayern Munich went to Portugal to face Benfica and got what we use to call an easy win, by 2-0. The first goal was scored by the goal machine, Robert Lewandowski, showing why the Bavarians wanted the Polish so bad. On the second half, it was time for Renato Sanchez, who used to play for Benfica, to score his goal. Bayern even scored a third goal, with Gnabry, but he was caught in an offside position and the goal was ruled out.

The Bavarians’ next match on UCL will be against Ajax, in Munich, fighting for the leadership of the group, once the Dutch won their first match by 3-0.

Pulisic and Wolf celebrate the goal

Borussia Dortmund also got a win, but it was certainly not easy. Facing the not so strong Club Brugge, from Belgium, the Yellow and Black had a difficult time and needed the help from the bench. Only at the 85th minute, the fans could celebrate the goal, with the American Christian Pulisic.

Even with a small win, Dortmund share the first place of Group A with Atletico Madrid, and will now face Monaco at home on the second round of the competition.

Schalke 04 players after the match

Schalke 04 were the only German to play at home and the draw could be a bad result, even though it was against the strong Portuguese champions, Porto. The Royal Blues were the ones who opened the scoring, with Embolo, and the Portuguese side scored their goal in a penalty, making it 1-1. It’s important to say that the away side had two penalties on the match, but Alex Telles lost his, while the match was still 0-0.

Looking for a victory on the second round, Schalke will travel to Russia to face Lokomotiv Moscow, who lost their match to the leader of Group D, Galatasaray.

Hoffenheim players celebrate the goal

Hoffenheim went to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk and was almost able to get away with a victory, however, at the 81st minute, the home side scored the equalizer and the match ended up 2-2. Hoffenheim goals were scored by Grillitsch and Nordtveit, while Shakhtar’s by two Brazilians, Ismayli and Maycon.

With the Manchester City defeat to Lyon, the draw could be a good result for the German side, once they will face the Blues from Manchester at home on the second round of Group F.
