Two Premier League sides are level, Spurs lead, and Real Madrid has luckily kept a Gareth Bale-authored lead thanks to some goofy officiating on the second match day of group stage play at the UEFA Champions League.

Sevilla 2-0 Maribor
Wissam Ben Yedder has goals in both of Sevilla’s UCL qualifiers and now both group stage matches after netting a 27th minute marker in Spain. He’s added another before the break.
Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool
Loris Karius will not enjoy the replay of a 23rd minute free kick given away by Philippe Coutinho, and he especially won’t enjoy his slow reaction to a free kick from Fernando (not that Fernando) which was not hit too near a post.
Coutinho made amends with a solidly struck equalizer just after the half-hour mark, working a 1-2 with Mane and lacing a shot beyond the hopes of Rebrov.
Besiktas 2-0 RB Leipzig
A man with a Liverpool connection is on the board in the form of Ryan Babel, and Anderson Talisca added a marker before halftime to double the Turkish side’s lead.
Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk
Fairly even at the Etihad Stadium, with Kevin De Bruyne missing a solid chance and Ederson denying Marlos at the other end.
Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Real Madrid
Gareth Bale’s 18th minute goal has the double-defending champions up at the Westfalenstadion.
By the way, this was somehow not a penalty:
Napoli 1-0 Feyenoord
A sneaky side to watch in the tournament, Napoli leads through Lorenzo Insigne.
Monaco 0-1 Porto
Cameroon star Vincent Aboubakar scores against Ligue 1 opposition.
APOEL Nicosia 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur
Three Premier League teams are in UEFA Champions League action on Tuesday in their second games of the 2017-18 group stage.

“What is your favorite?” I hear you cry. Settle down, settle down. I love a good curler which clips off the bar and in so I’m going with Delphy’s goal against Crystal Palace. Sublime.
Now, of course, they have to qualify first.
But if Bruce Arena’s men do make the 2018 World Cup in Russia they could be wearing this beauty in the photo below.

With all leaked jerseys there is a real possibility it could turn out to look completely different but information from Conrad Burry of Sportslogos over the weekend suggested something along these lines.
Take a look at the photo below of the home jersey (the away jersey is said to be “Midnight Navy with a second color of Blue Nebula”) and let us know what you think.
