Barcelona battle from goal down to beat Gladbach 2-1

Pep Guardiola witnessed the end to his perfect record with Manchester City as his Premier League leaders had to come from behind three times to earn a 3-3 draw at Celtic in a dazzling Champions League Group C encounter on Wednesday. Guardiola's men were taken aback by the fevered atmosphere at Celtic Park as they were denied an 11th straight win which would have equalled Tottenham Hotspur's 1960-61 landmark as the best start to a season by any English club. The inspired Scottish champions, unrecognizable from the side humbled 7-0 at Barcelona in their opening game, sniffed a sensation after Moussa Dembele scored at the start of each half and when Raheem Sterling netted a first-half own goa

Soccer-Guardiola - perfect record falls in thrilling Celtic draw

Manchester City came from behind three times to draw 3-3 at Celtic in a Champions League thriller on Wednesday that ended the English team's 100 percent start to the season under new coach Pep Guardiola. Fernandinho and Raheem Sterling scored equalizers for City in an action-packed first half after Celtic went ahead twice through Moussa Dembele, in the third minute, and Sterling's own goal in the 20th. Dembele restored Celtic's lead barely a minute into the second half after Aleksandar Kolarov's defensive error, only for Nolito to equalize for City in the 55t

Carrasco strike helps Atletico halt Bayern - perfect run

Edinson Cavani scored twice in the second half to give Paris St Germain a 3-1 Champions League Group A win over resilient Ludogorets on Wednesday at the ground where they made their European soccer debut 34 years ago. It was no more than PSG, who were beaten 1-0 at the Vasil Levski stadium by another Bulgarian side - Lokomotiv Sofia - in the now defunct Cup Winners Cup in 1982, deserved after dominating throughout with Cavani running the show. The result put PSG top of the group with four points from two games, ahead of Arsenal on goal difference after the English side secured a 2-0 home win over FC Base

Rostov draws with PSV for first-ever Champions League point

By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Theo Walcott scored twice before halftime as Arsenal beat FC Basel 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to move joint top of Champions League Group A on Wednesday. The England forward twice combined brilliantly with Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal overwhelmed the Swiss to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to eight matches. Arsenal needed only six minutes to open the scoring when Walcott headed in a Sanchez cross and a superb one-two 20 minutes later with the south American saw him double the lea

Two goals from Dmitry Poloz gave Rostov its first-ever Champions League point on Wednesday in a 2-2 draw with PSV Eindhoven. Unlucky to concede two goals following deflections in the first half, fortune was firmly on the Russian side in the second as the crossbar and some excellent goalkeeping from Soslan Dzhanaev stopped PSV from claiming the win.

The English Football Association's preference is that an Englishman coaches the national team, but there's hardly a queue of top-quality candidates.
