Leicester’s Champions League season started with a win against Club Brugge at the Jan Breydel Stadium on Wednesday.

It couldn’t have been a better first ever Champions League match for Leicester, after the in-different start to the Premier League title defence, after a three-nil win at Club Brugge.

The first shot from Leicester resulted in a goal with Albrighton finishing following a Hernandez long throw, which wasn’t defended very well by the Brugge.

Ahead of the half hour mark Mahrez curled home the second with a fine freekick to leave Leicester in control come half time.

Vardy being brought down, as he had for the freekick, gave Leicester a penalty and a chance to seal the win just past the hour with Mahrez making no mistake in tucking it away for the Foxes third with a cleansheet secured after Izquierdo hit the post.

Here’s a round up of the Champions League action from the other matches played.

Tuesday’s opening matches saw goals flowing, some matches were cagey and ended in draws but others saw Barcelona recover from a La Liga defeat to thrash Celtic seven-nil, which came after the Scottish Champions had thumped rivals Rangers five-one in the league ahead of this!

Another emphatic winner were Bayern Munich who won in Germany seeing off Rostov (who had knocked out Ajax in the qualifying rounds) emphatically five-nil.

Manchester City though couldn’t get a bid underway as the match against Borussia Monchengladbach at the Etihad Stadium didn’t go ahead with torrential rain causing a postponement although this was rearranged for Wednesday.

In that rearranged match on Wednesday Man City walked it four-nil!

Borussia Dortmund were another side to get off to an emphatic win with the German side winning six-nil against Legia Warsaw with convincing wins for Lyon against Dinamo Zagreb and (in a first ever match at this level) Leicester in Belgium against Club Brugge – both won three-nil.

Defending Champions Real Madrid left it late, coming from a goal-down to beat Sporting Lisbon two-one at the Bernabeu.
