The Dutchman of color, Barcelona in particular, will be disappointed with the course of the first match. And on Tuesday evening, Villarreal, who may play in the Champions League due to winning the European League last season, drew 2-2 against Italy’s Atalanta Bergamo. I did this on my own Madrigal. Villarreal fell back after 6 minutes, but managed to turn the game into a 2-1 lead in the 73rd minute, thanks in part to a goal scored by Dutchman Arnot Groenefeld. However, Atalanta, where Teun Koopmeiners was brought in instead of Marten de Roon in the 70th minute, tied the score in the 83rd minute. The score remained 2-2 on the scoreboard after 90 minutes. A neutral spectator was the evening’s biggest winner.

Villarreal will play the next Champions League match on September 29 in England against Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United. The other contender in the group is Young Boys of Switzerland, who surprisingly beat Manchester United in their first group match.


Barcelona football coach Ronald Koeman underperformed on Tuesday in the second leg against German champions Bayern Munich. On SportyTrader’s Champions League betting tips page, where football matches are predicted based on various factors affecting the Champions League match, Barcelona was already expected to struggle against the more experienced Bayern Munich, better quality and physical strength.

This became a reality at the Camp Nou and Barcelona never entered the game: 0-3. Attacking duo Luc de Jong, who recently came from Seville and Memphis Depay, couldn’t create a single chance to score and Frenkie de Jong also couldn’t convince. And German Thomas Muller made the score 0-1 in the 34th minute, after which the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski caused Barcelona an additional injury with his two goals in the 56th and 85th minutes.
