Tottenham, Real Madrid, Manchester City Win • woeful Liverpool held
Harry Kane’s first Champions League hat-trick made it two wins from two group games for Tottenham with a 3-0 victory at APOEL Nicosia.

The in-form striker gave Spurs a first-half lead against the run of play when he latched on to Toby Alderweireld’s through-ball and finished coolly, after the hosts had earlier hit the crossbar.

Hugo Lloris was forced into two good saves after the interval as APOEL continued to threaten, but deadly Kane finished off another swift breakaway when he was set up by Moussa Sissoko.

the England striker took his current Champions League tally to five in two games, and nine goals in all competitions this season, when he headed home Kieran Trippier’s cross from the right to net a perfect hat-trick.

Liverpool were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw despite dominating at Spartak Moscow in their Champions League Group E clash on Tuesday.

Fernando’s fine free-kick gave Spartak Moscow the lead in an action-packed opening (23), but Philippe Coutinho levelled with his first-ever Champions League goal following a lovely move (31).

Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling’s second-half goals saw Manchester City beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

De Bruyne opened the scoring with a powerful 25-yard shot three minutes after half-time, before Sterling’s close-range finish wrapped up the win in the last minute.

The final scoreline could have been even greater, only for Sergio Aguero to miss a penalty with 18 minutes left to play, but Pep Guardiola’s side remain top of Group F after a comfortable victory.

Gareth Bale’s stunning volley and two Cristiano Ronaldo goals earned Real Madrid victory in a pulsating Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.

Bale broke the deadlock in the 18th minute when he struck a precise volley past a helpless Roman Burki, who could not react to the pace of the shot.

Ronaldo doubled the lead just after the break when he turned a Bale cross home from close range, as Real Madrid looked like they would ease to victory.

Dortmund quickly sprung into life as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang reduced the deficit five minutes later, when his clever movement saw him earn enough space to allow him to poke home a Gonzalo Castro cross.

As the game was further stretched in the closing stages, Ronaldo took full advantage with 11 minutes to go as he coasted into the area, before smashing a low shot beyond Burki at the goalkeeper’s near post.

French Ligue 1 to Introduce VAR in 2018/19 Season

French Ligue 1 to Introduce VAR in 2018/19 Season

The French Ligue 1 will become one of the top flight leagues to introduce the Video Assistant Referee, VAR next season.

The board of the Ligue de Football Professional on Thursday voted in support of the bill that will see the new system used in the 2018/2019 campaign of Ligue 1 just like La Liga would too.

That means that a center referee will have to review a video footage in the case of goals, penalty calls, straight red cards and mistaken identity for bookings or dismissals.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) must endorse the use of video technology before the LFP can implement the video assistant referee system permanently. IFAB is expected to deliver a verdict at its annual meeting in early 2018.
