Chelsea 0-0 Valencia
Liverpool 0-0 Napoli
It’s been a pretty even affair, though Liverpool can thank Adrian for a pair of great saves on Dries Mertens before Hirving “Chucky” Lozano’s goal was ruled offside.
Red Bull Salzburg 5-1 Genk
Jesse Marsch is now officially the first American man to manage a team in a UEFA Champions League game.
The Red Bull Salzburg boss is also the first to hold a second minute lead, as red hot striker Erling Braut Haaland scored his 15th, 16th, and 17th goals in nine matches under Marsch.
Haaland also five assists on the season, having entered Tuesday’s match with 658 minutes across all competitions.
Haaland is the son of former Leeds, Man City, and Nottingham Forest manager Alf-Inge Haland.
Hwang-Hee Chan has Salzburg’s other goal, and two assists.
