World News – GB – CL Wrap: Chelsea beat Rennes 3 to 10, Man Utd loses and Sevilla to 10 upset Krasnodar


Chelsea won a 3-0 victory over Rennes at 10 in the Champions League on Wednesday after Dalbert was sent off for conceding two first-half penalties converted by Timo Werner

The Brazilian left-back was penalized for tripping Werner into the penalty area in the ninth minute, then receiving his second yellow card – harshly, according to both coaches – just before half-time when a Tammy Abraham’s shot hit Dalbert’s leg and ricocheted on his outstretched arm

Werner, now on the kick before Jorginho, sent in both penalties to give Chelsea a two-goal lead at half-time, and Abraham added the third goal in the 50th minute

Rennes coach Julien Stephan was particularly disappointed with the award of the second penalty, saying it was a turning point in the match and that it may have been a misunderstanding over handball’s decision

« What happened was surprising, » said Stephan « I don’t think it would turn out the other way for Chelsea »

Asked about his reaction, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said: « If I were Rennes manager, I wouldn’t be happy »

Chelsea’s second consecutive Group E victory kept the English side first, thanks to their superior goal difference over Sevilla, and on track for a place in the knockout stage Rennes appear to be on the way. beat with his compatriot newcomer to the competition Krasnodar for third place and a place in the last 32 matches of the Europa League, both on one point

Manchester United conceded an embarrassing goal before collapsing in a 2-1 loss to Champions League newcomer Istanbul Başakşehir on Wednesday, opening their squad wide

Demba Ba, a 35-year-old striker who played in the Premier League, was allowed to run to goal unopposed from 15 meters (meters) inside Başakşehir’s half and got a finish to give to Turkish champions a 13th-minute lead and their very first Champions League goal

United’s defense was almost as poor for the second goal, with midfielder Juan Mata dispossessed near the halfway line and midfielder Başakşehir Edin Višć left unmarked – following a Ba dummy – to hit a rising shot in the net in the 40th

Anthony Martial reduced United’s deficit by peeking into a header three minutes later, but the England side failed to match their performance level in wins against Paris Saint -Germain and Leipzig in the first two rounds of matches, despite relentless pressure in the second half

Başakşehir’s first Champions League victory was sealed when defender Alexandru Epureanu freed the ball acrobatically after a run into the zone with seconds remaining in stopping time

The Turkish team had already lost to PSG and Leipzig without scoring, and languished in seventh place in their domestic league in a disappointing start to their title defense

« You don’t just show up and get three points in the Champions League, » United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said « We weren’t good enough, that’s all It’s not easy to be positive when you lost like we did »

Substitute Youssef En-Nesyri scored a pair of goals three minutes apart in the second half as 10-man Sevilla rallied two goals to defeat Krasnodar 3-2 in the Champions League on Wednesday

The victory left Sevilla tied with Chelsea at the top of Group E Both teams have seven points each, but Chelsea were ahead of the goal difference after a 3-0 win over Rennes Krasnodar and Rennes remained at the bottom with a point each

Sevilla played the entire second half with a downed man as captain Jesús Navas received a red card for a foul to stop Krasnodar’s counterattack just before the break

“We knew at half time we could come back,” said Ivan Rakitic “We dug deep inside to find the strength to do it despite playing with 10 men The team deserved this victory « 

The visitors opened the scoring with a free kick shot by Magomed Suleymanov from the edge of the box in the 17th minute, and Marcus Berg added to the header by converting a penalty which was given after a video review at the 21st

Sevilla started their comeback with a Rakitic header in the 42nd, and En-Nesyri scored his goals after coming off the bench early in the second half

His first came after Krasnodar defender Kaio lost control of the ball as he was under pressure near the area in the 69th, and the second was a shot from inside the box after Rakitic’s cross from the left hit the post in the 72nd

Leipzig came back from behind to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday, when the visitors finished with nine players

It was a two-penalty game, with Ángel Di María missing in the first half for PSG, while Emil Forsberg scored the home side winner in the 57th minute

PSG ended Leipzig’s participation in last season’s competition with a 3-0 semi-final victory, and the German side were also trying to overcome their 5-0 loss to Manchester United on the week last

But Julian Nagelsmann’s side started second in favor of a PSG side weakened by the absence of star strikers Neymar and Kylian Mbappé due to injuries

Italy striker Moise Kean took advantage of a mistake by Dayot Upamecano to score Di María’s first goal in the sixth minute

PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas made a brilliant save to deny Amadou Haidara an immediate response, and Alessandro Florenzi returned to block Angeliño on the rebound

Upamecano, who was already in the spotlight for a poor performance in Manchester, gave a penalty in the 15th as he was also cautioned for blocking Kean’s shot with his hand

But Péter Gulácsi dived the right way to save Di María’s kick, and the visitors must have regretted further missed opportunities to strengthen their lead
