Group G: Celtic loses despite Ajeti hit
After Albian Ajeti joined Celtic Glasgow had already shone with a brace in the league at the weekend, he needed against Betis Sevilla not even 13 minutes to start again. Before the first half hour was over, the Swiss took a penalty, which his team-mate Josip Juranovic converted to 2-0. The home team equalized the game within 2 minutes thanks to goals from Juan Miranda (32nd) and Juanmi (34th). With another double strike after the break (50th / 53rd), the Spaniards turned the game, the connecting gate of Celtics Tony Ralston to 3:4 (87th) came too late.
The one trained by Gerardo Seoane Bayer Leverkusen started with a win in the group stage of the Europa League. The Bundesliga team opposed Ferencvaros Budapest after an early deficit with 2:1 by. The decisive goal was scored by 18-year-old Florian Wirtz in the 69th minute.
Group A: Successful start for Shaqiris Lyon
Xherdan Shaqiri had to be patient for 71 minutes until coach Peter Bosz finally allowed him to exercise. Lyon was leading away with the Glasgow Rangers 2:0 – it stayed that way. Karl Toko Ekambi (23rd) and an own goal by James Tavernier (55th) made the difference in a game in which the French were not the better, but the more efficient team. Because the Lyons were mainly concerned with managing the lead in the final phase, Shaqiri’s influence remained manageable.
Group C: Osimhen secure a point for Napoli
In the duel of the group favorites Leicester at home against Naples 2:2 played. Ayoze Perez had already given the efficient Englishmen, who had less of the game for long stretches, the lead in the 9th minute. Harvey Barnes followed suit in the second half after a fine individual performance (64th). But the hard-working Neapolitans did not give up: Victor Osimhen with acrobatic lob (69th) and late head (87th) made the balance with a double.
Group E: Lazio dives in Istanbul after a slapstick own goal
Lazio Rom starts with a 0:1-Defeat in the Europa League.

Coach Maurizio Sarri’s team was subsequently unable to react.
