Week 1 gave us some stunning soccer action, with goals and talking points aplenty. Manchester City beat RB Leipzig 6-3 in a topsy-turvey game featuring own goals, penalties, a sending off and a wonderful Jack Grealish strike.
Liverpool overcame AC Milan 3-2 in a thriller at Anfield, Bayern Munich ran out comfortable 3-0 victors over Barcelona, holders Chelsea were 1-0 victors over Zenit and Juventus beat Malmo 3-0.
What else? Well Manchester United suffered a poor defeat at the hands of Young Boys, despite another Cristiano Ronaldo goal, Real Madrid beat Inter Milan 1-0 and Ajax put five past Sporting.
Week 2 promises to be every bit as exciting, with PSG — Messi, Neymar and all — playing last year's losing finalists Manchester City, Milan taking on Atletico Madrid and Juventus vs Chelsea all standing out. The only shame is that we have to wait until September 28/29 for the next round of games.

How to watch Champions League 21/22 live streams with a VPN
If you're not in your home country during the Champions League 21/22 season and are unable to live stream a game from wherever you are, you can still tune in via a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN makes it appear that you're surfing the web from your home town — meaning that you can access the streaming services you already pay for. It's all totally legal and easy to do.
We've tested many different VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN; it offers superb speeds, excellent customer service and a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out first to see if it's right for you. But you've got other VPN options too, so check out our full list of the best VPN services.
Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.View Deal
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
