UEFA Champions League

UCL Matchday Two: Players who performed poorly in the Champions League After Tuesday and Wednesday's Matches

The UEFA Champions League was in full action this midweek as 18 matches were played on Tuesday and Wednesday. The mid-week matches were full of dramas and unexpected incidents that made the competition controversial and interesting.

Let's take a look at the four underperforming players after the UEFA Champions League matchday 2.


1. Kevin De Bruyne:

Kevin De Bruyne recently returned from injury and has not been in his best form yet. On Tuesday, Kevin De Bruyne took on Paris Saint-Germain in Paris but he failed to influence the game for his team. He was unable to create good goal scoring chances nor provide an assist for his teammates as Manchester City lost 2-0 to Paris Saint-Germain in Paris.


2. Jack Grealish:

Jack Grealish became the most expensive player in the history of the English Premier League when signed for Manchester City in a deal worth £100 million. The England winger is yet to justify his heavy transfer fee as the fans keep waiting to see the best of Jack Grealish.

Just like Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish was ineffective in the game against Paris Saint-Germain and was arguably one of the worst players on the pitch.


3. Luuk De Jong:

Luuk De Jong was a surprise deadline day signing for Barcelona but the Dutch striker is yet to keep the dice rolling at the Camp Nou. Luuk De Jong was average in the last night against Benfica and even wasted a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.


4. Romelu Lukaku:

From scoring in three consecutive matches, Romelu Lukaku has now gone three games in a row without a goal and was arguably the worst player for Chelsea against Juventus. Although, the entire Chelsea team was poor last night the Belgian striker could have done better with the effort he blasted over the bar.
