Liverpool rallies past AC Milan in Champions League opener

Jordan Henderson capped Liverpool’s second-half comeback with a brilliantly controlled finish to clinch a 3-2 win over AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday. The Liverpool captain met a clearance to the edge of the area with a half-volley that flew into the bottom corner in the 69th minute in another classic European game at Anfield. Trailing at halftime, Liverpool started the second half as it began the first and, in the 48th, Mohamed Salah made amends for his penalty failure by running into Divock Origi’s scooped pass and poking the ball past goaltender Mike Maignan, who curiously chose not to come out of the six-yard box to collect the ball. Henderson completed the comeback with his first Champions League goal in seven years . . . Paris-St. Germain’s formidable attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé was left frustrated by a spirited Club Brugge that created the best chances and defended well to earn a 1-1 draw in their Champions League group opener. Messi hit the crossbar during his 150th appearance in the competition, but could not score for his new club after PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino sent out his three superstars all together for the first time. Brugge captain Hans Vanaken drew the hosts level in the 27th minute after Mbappé set up Ander Herrera’s opener in the 15th.

Champions League’s group stage is oddly palatable in a stale world

There is, perhaps, no better indication of how broken modern football is that the return of the Champions League group stages feels almost like a palate cleanser. With the Swiss system to be introduced in 2024, and plans afoot for increasingly bloated World Cups to be staged increasingly often, the Champions League format appears by comparison a model of modest efficiency.
