Champions League Takeaway: United’s Defensive Woes, Arsenal Back With a Bang, Inzaghi’s Incorrect Rotations, Leão’s Off Day, Joyful João Félix, Alvarez Grabs the Headlines & Everything Else

20 September 2023

Hello Rank Squad!

It’s time for the first main course Champions League Takeaway of this season – a midweek bonus meal on all the week’s UCL action. The biggest competition in European football is back, and we’re amongst it to take a look at the action from both Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
We start with what went down tonight, with three big takeaways on Manchester United’s defensive woes, Arsenal’s young guns being so ready for this stage, and Simone Inzaghi making too many changes to his Inter side, before rounding up the rest of the action.
Then in Part Two, we take a look at Tuesday – talking Rafael Leão’s off day for Milan, joyful João Félix shining already at Barcelona, and Julian Alvarez being the world’s best supporting actor, and then run through everything else that happened too.

It’s Ranks!
