Real Madrid still winless after Häcken comeback

Scorers: Kafaji 59′, Kosola 76′; Bruun 9′

Real Madrid are still seeking their first Group D win of the season after being downed by Häcken.

Signe Bruun had opened the scoring for the visitors by reacting quickest after Jennifer Falk tipped Ivana Sanz’s long-range attempt onto the post.

But Las Blancas were pulled level right before the hour mark when Rosa Kafaji pounced on a loose ball to rifle home from inside the area.

The hosts completed their comeback in the final 15 minutes as Katariina Kosola produced a curling effort from Kafaji’s pass to deliver a famous victory.

It means Alberto Toril’s side sit third in the group with just one point from their opening two fixtures while their hosts are comfortably top with six.

Kerr hat-trick helps Chelsea see off Paris

Scorers: Kerr 30′, 48′, 55′, Ingle 90+1; Greboval 38′

Sam Kerr struck a hat-trick as Chelsea comfortably saw off Paris FC to secure their first victory in Group D.

The Australia captain headed home an opener on the half-hour mark after meeting Lauren James’s cross.

But Paris levelled just eight minutes later when Théa Greboval produced a looping header to beat Jess Carter on the goal-line.

Kerr, however, produced a second-half double, starting with a first-time finish to meet Johanna Rytting Kaneryd’s cross to the far post.

She struck a sublime follow-up by latching onto Ann-Katrin Berger’s downfield kick and hooking a lofted attempt to catch out Chiamaka Nnadozie.

Sophie Ingle added a fourth for Emma Hayes’s side in added time with a sweeping finish to meet Ève Périsset’s corner from the right.

Roma trounce Ajax

Scorers: Giacinti 5′, 14′, Giugliano 47′

Roma occupy Group C’s top spot after a comprehensive victory over Ajax.

Valentina Giacinti broke the deadlock with an early half-volley after Manuela Giugliano’s corner had initially been parried.

The Italy international doubled her tally less than 10 minutes later by profiting from a defensive mix-up to slot home a second.

Giugliano added a goal to her assist just moments after the interval with a sublime volley after being teed up by Emilie Haavi.

Bayern Munich edge out PSG

Scorers: Eriksson 21′

Bayern Munich maintained their unbeaten start to Group C by edging out Paris Saint-Germain.

Magdalena Eriksson scored the only goal midway through the first half after Glódís Perla Viggósdóttir had glanced Klara Bühl’s free kick into her path.

The win at the Stade Jean-Bouin sees Alexander Straus’ side up to second in the group behind Roma.
