Champions League Matchday 2 closed with a bang, with Paris Saint-Germain routing Bayern Munich in its biggest test yet, while Chelsea stole points from Atletico Madrid with Michy Batshuayi's stunning win at the death.
Former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata returned to the Spanish capital with Chelsea and delivered a huge equalizer just before the hour mark, heading home with the redirect for his seventh goal since a lucrative summer transfer.
It took a little bit, but Barcelona went ahead of Sporting Lisbon in Portugal, with Luis Suarez forcing an own goal off international teammate Sebastian Coates in the 49th minute after a free kick.
After a David Luiz foul on a corner kick, Antoine Griezmann converted from the spot with confidence to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 edge over Chelsea at the Wanda Metropolitano in the 40th minute.
Celtic was humbled at home by PSG in the group opener, but Leigh Griffiths put the Scottish champion ahead of Anderlecht on the road to cap a great sequence in a needed bounce-back performance.
