Champions League: Bayern with a happy win, penalty drama in Manchester
Andre Onana saved the penalty in the final minute.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also won their third game in the Champions League group stage. The Germans won flatteringly against Galatasaray 3-1 (1-1) in Istanbul on Tuesday, while Real won 2-1 (1-0) in Braga without ÖFB team captain David Alaba. In Salzburg Group D, Real Sociedad won 1-0 (0-0) at Benfica Lisbon.

At the Estadio da Luz, the guests from San Sebastian were clearly the better team and deservedly celebrated their second win thanks to Brais Mendez (63′), which also brought the Basques into first place ahead of Inter thanks to the better goal difference. Benfica under former Salzburg master coach Roger Schmidt is still without a point or goal after the third game.

Bayern lost to Galatasaray

Bayern took the lead through Kingsley Coman after eight minutes against the Turkish champions, who were superior in terms of play, in a deafening crowd. For Galatasaray, Mauro Icardi equalized after half an hour with a “Panenka penalty” (30th). After the break, Tuchel’s team appeared callous and secured the three points with goals from Harry Kane (73′) and Jamal Musiala (79′).

Konrad Laimer played through at Bayern. The ÖFB legionnaire, most recently deployed on the right side of the defensive line, came on in place of the injured Leon Goretzka in central midfield and opened the scoring to make it 3-1. Noussair Mazraoui, who was criticized for a pro-Palestinian social media post, celebrated a comeback. The recently struck Moroccan had distributed a video wishing the Palestinians victory in the conflict with Israel. The right-back returned to the starting line-up after a “detailed and clarifying conversation” with the club management.

Real Madrid took the next step towards promotion without Alaba, who only sat on the bench. Rodrygo (16th) and Jude Bellingham (61st) scored for the Spaniards, but Alvaro Djalo (63rd) made things exciting again shortly afterwards and initiated a strong final phase for the Portuguese. Second place in Group C is held by the Italian champions SSC Napoli, who won 1-0 (0-0) at Union Berlin thanks to a goal from Giacomo Raspadori (65th). With the Germans still without points, Austrian captain Christopher Trimmel, who played through, made his debut in the premier class at the age of 36.

Drama in Manchester

Arsenal took the lead in Group B with a 2-1 (1-0) win at Sevilla FC. Gabriel Martinelli (45th + 4) and Gabriel Jesus (53rd) shot the English to the top, the Gunners’ good defense only allowed Nemanja Gudelj (58th) to score. RC Lens with ÖFB team defender Kevin Danso achieved a 1-1 (0-0) at home against PSV Eindhoven and is now one point behind Arsenal. Johan Bakayoko (54th) gave PSV the lead, Elye Wahi (65th) equalized.

In Manchester, United remembered their idol Bobby Charlton, who died on Sunday, before the game against Copenhagen (1-0). Coach Erik ten Hag entered the pitch with a former Charlton teammate behind a bagpiper and laid a wreath. The match winners for United, who had lost the first two games, were the much-maligned defensive corner Harry Maguire (72nd) and Andre Onana. The goalkeeper saved a penalty from Jordan Larsson in the 97th minute.
