UEFA Champions League: Aussies battle with world's best
After Barcelona last month, PSV Eindhoven prepared for the visit of three-time European champions Inter Milan this morning.
And it was a tough night for both Trent Sainsbury and Aziz Behich, who watched on from the bench as Mark van Bommel’s side went down 2-1.
Pablo Rosario opened the scoring for the Eredivisie leaders in the first half, but strikes from Radja Nainggolan and Mauro Icardi leaves PSV winless alongside Tottenham in Group B.
Meanwhile, Milos Degenek played the full match as Red Star Belgrade were beaten 6-1 by PSG, with Neymar’s hat-trick and goals to Cavani, Mbappe and Angel Di Maria completing a handsome win for Thomas Tuchel’s men.
Despite the heavy defeat, Red Star did land a punch on the Ligue 1 superpower as Marko Marin fired in a consolation – the club’s first goal on Europe's biggest stage since 1992.
Degenek and Red Star will look to breathe life back into their Group C assault with a trip to Anfield up next.
Championship: Meredith and Millwall hit back late
James Meredith played 75 minutes and withstood a floodlight failure in Millwall’s dramatic 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest in the English Championship.
Forest were 2-0 up late in the second half following goals from Joe Lolley and Joao Carvalho, but Millwall fought back through Shaun Williams’ effort and an injury-time equaliser from Lee Gregory.
Elsewhere in the Championship, Bailey Wright’s long-awaited return from injury was put on hold as Bristol City shared a 0-0 stalemate with Ryan Williams’ Rotherham United.
A thigh injury has caused Wright to miss Bristol’s entire season so far, but the 26-year-old had been in contention for the clash against Rotherham after returning to regular training earlier in the week.
He’ll now have his sights set on Bristol City’s home clash with Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday 11.30pm (AEST).
