Joaquín Correa

That's it for our live coverage tonight. Manchester City showed no signs of the problems that have plagued them on the road in Europe in recent years and really could have comfortably put more than four past Feyenoord tonight. Pep will be pleased, mind.

It's the same old story for Liverpool, after coming from behind they threw away a lead at Anfield allowing Sevilla to return to Spain with a valuable point. Roberto Firmino's first-half penalty miss could have killed the game off at the end of the first-half, but instead it went down as what will know by a hugely costly miss.

Full-time whistles have gone; here is how things have finished up...

Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla
NK Maribor 1-1 Spartak Moscow
Feyenoord 0-4 Manchester City
Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 Napoli
FC Porto 1-3 Besiktas
RB Leipzig 1-1 Monaco
Real Madrid 3-0 APOEL
Tottenham 3-1 Borussia Dortmund

Full-time: Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla

To add insult to injury, Liverpool are reduced to 10 men in the dying moments of the match for a second bookable offence.

RED CARD - Joe Gomez (Liverpool)

Coutinho swings a corner in and Wijnaldum can meet it with a firm header, but it directs it straight at the Sevlilla goalkeeper. Straight down the other end, Luis Muriel almost catches the home side out, getting goal side of Joe Gomez and forcing a shot on goal only to drag it just wide.

Full-time: Feyenoord 0-4 Manchester City

Spurs are cruising to three points but Jan Vertonghen has been sent off after catching Mario Gotze with a stray arm.

RED CARD - Jan Vertonghen

Liverpool are running out of time. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has come on for the final few minutes to try and force a late equaliser.


Goal! Porto 1-3 Besiktas, (Ryan Babel, 86)

Meanwhile at Wembley, Fernando Llorente has come on for his Tottenham debut.

Joaquín Correa

It's happening again to Liverpool; they've thrown away another lead with Joaquín Correa's strike levelling things at Anfield. 10 minutes remain.

Philippe Coutinho is onto make his first appearance for the season to replace Emre Can. A perfect time for a winner, surely?

Out of nowhere, Sevilla have an equaliser! Luis Muriel, just off the bench, drives towards the Liverpool box, slipping a clever ball through for Joaquín Correa who wonderfully curls the ball over the onrushing Karius and into the net.

Goal! Liverpool 2-2 Sevilla (Joaquín Correa 72)

Goal! Shahktar Donestk 2-1 Napoli (Milik, 72)

John Stones is on the score sheet again, wandering into acres of space to thump home a wonderful cross from Kevin de Bruyne. It was a short corner again from City that completely befuddled the Dutch champions, who are looking pretty woeful.

Goal! Feyenoord 0-4 Manchester City (John Stones, 62)

Real have a third and it's their captain who is the score sheet. Marcelo looks for Bale at the far post with the Welshman managing to nod the ball back across goal. Ramos decides to go for the overhead kick and while his connection isn't the cleanest, he manages to smuggle it over the line.

Goal! Real Madrid 3-0 APOEL (Sergio Ramos, 60)

Goal! Maribor 0-1 Spartak Moskva (Samedov 60)

Clinical from Kane! He has his second of the night, drifting out to the left to receive a pass from Eriksen before drilling a low effort across goal and into the far corner. Sublime finish.

Goal! Tottenham 3-1 Borussia Dortmuns (Harry Kane, 59)

Terrible goalkeeping from Pepe Reina, who comes steaming out of goal to collect a cross but totally misjudges the flight of the ball, allowing Facundo Ferreyra to head into an unguarded goal.

Goal! Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 Napoli (Facundo Ferreyra, 57)

Dortmund have a second! But it won't count. Aubameyang wonderfully finishes, sweeping a half volley home from a tight angle but the Gabon international is ruled offside. Replays suggest that was the wrong call...

Roberto Lago handles the ball inside the box and Real have the chance to double their lead from the penalty spot. Ronaldo steps up and hammers home.

Goal! Real Madrid 2-0 APOEL (Cristiano Ronaldo, 51)

PENALTY - Real Madrid

Tottenham really should have added to their lead. Harry Kane wriggles down the right and cuts a ball inside to Son who is through on goal. He opts to check inside before shooting on goal, but lifts a poor effort over the bar.

And we are back underway across Europe.

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool lead at half-time thanks to Mohamed Salah's strike - which albeit came with a rather large slice of luck.

Phew, 16 goals in the first 45 minutes across our eight games this evening. Half-time scores are:

Liverpool 2-1 Sevilla
NK Maribor 0-0 Spartak Moscow
Feyenoord 0-3 Manchester City
Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 Napoli
FC Porto 1-2 Besiktas
RB Leipzig 1-1 Monaco
Real Madrid 1-0 APOEL
Tottenham 2-1 Borussia Dortmund

Half-time whistles being blown across Europe now...

PENALTY MISSED! Roberto Firmino steps up but hammers his effort against the post!

Liverpool have the chance to score a third just before half time after a Mane is pulled down by a Sevilla defender. Might have been a hand ball in there too...

PENALTY - Liverpool

Liverpool come from behind to take the lead! Salah's ball into the middle is intercepted but the Egyptian drives inside to nick the ball back from N'Zonzi to win possession back for his side. He turns towards goal and takes the shot on and a huge deflection lifts it over the hapless Rico and into the back of the net.

Goal! Liverpool 2-1 Sevilla (Mohamed Salah, 37)

That didn't last long then. Tielemans has scored an equaliser for his side, tapping home after seeing his initial effort saved.

Goal! RB Leipzig 1-1 Monaco (Youri Tielemans, 35)

Leipzig have their first goal in the Champions League! Forsberg races down the left in acres, cutting inside with the Monaco centre-half AWOL. Timo Werner is in support waiting for the tap in, but the Swede instead hammers it home at the near post himself.

Goal! RB Leipzig 1-0 Monaco (Emil Forsberg, 33)

There have been some superb goals so far this evening but Cenk Tosun may have just provided the best of the bench, lashing home a wonderful effort from 30 yards out to beat Iker Casillas and put Besiktas back in the lead.

Goal! Porto 1-2 Besiktas (Cenk Tosun, 28)

This is getting messy at Feyenoord. Sergio Aguero sees his effort on goal blocked with Mendy following it up with a powerful drive from just inside the box. Brad Jones in goal manages to keep that one out but can't hold onto it and Jesus reacts quickest to tap home the rebound.

Goal! Feyenoord 0-3 Manchester City (Gabriel Jesus, 25)

Goal! Porto 1-1 Besiktas (Marega, 21)

Liverpool are level! For all their fragilities at the back, they have looked fearsome coming forward. Jordan Henderson plays a one-two with Moreno on the edge of the box with skipper breaking through down the inside left to cut an inviting ball across the face of goal. There's a gaggle of red shirts waiting for the tap in, but Firmino is there first.

Goal! Liverpool 1-1 Sevilla (Roberto Firmino, 20)

Goal! Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 Napoli (Taison, 16)

Ben Yedder

Ben Yedder has capitalised on some woeful defending from Liverpool; Sevilla lead at Anfield.

Brilliant from Kane! He puts Tottenham back in the lead, muscling his way down the left wing, powering his way past two Dortmund defenders and into the box before lashing an unstoppable effort right into the corner where Son lashed one into in the opening minutes.

Goal! Tottenham, 2-1 Borussia Dortmund (Harry Kane, 14)

Goal! Porto 0-1 Besiktas (Talisca, 13)

A stunning strike from Yarmolenko has levelled things up from Wembley! Receiving the ball down the inside right channel, the Ukrainian shifts the ball onto his left foot and curls a beauty past Lloris and into the top corner.

Real Madrid are also off and running with Ronaldo on the spot to tap home Bale's precise cross.

Goal! Real Madrid 1-0 APOEL (Cristiano Ronaldo, 12)

Goal! Tottenham 1-1 Borussia Dortmund (Yarmolenko, 10)

This could be a long night for Feyenoord. A sublime finish from Sergio Aguero has made it two in 10 minutes for the away side.

Goal! Feyenoord 0-2 Manchester City (Sergio Aguero, 10)

There are goals inside the first four minutes in all the games involving English sides now. Spurs have an early goal at home to Dortmund, with Son, freed down the inside left channel by Harry Kane, cutting in, dancing inside his man and lashing an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.

All smiles for them, but it is a disastrous start for Liverpool with their woeful defending exposed again with Lovren completely missing the ball as a cross comes in from the left, allowing Yedder to tap in from yards out.

Goal! Liverpool 0-1 Sevilla (Ben Yedder, 4)

Goal! Tottenham 1-0 Borussia Dortmund (Son Heung-min, 3)

Man City have the first goal of the evening! Silva takes a short corner and clips a cross in for Stones who header squirms past Vilhena and across the line.

Goa! Feyenoord 0-1 Manchester City (John Stones, 1)

Emre Can has an early shot from range after Mane slid a pass across to him on the edge of the box. It's nice and easy for the goalkeeper, however.

Here we go, we are underway across Europe.

Just over 10 minutes until kick-off, here's a look another look at the Liverpool and Manchester City starting XI tonight.

Liverpool team to face Sevilla: Karius, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Wijnaldum, Can, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Firmino.

Subs: Mignolet, Milner, Coutinho, Sturridge, Klavan, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson.

Manchester City team to face Feyenoord: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, Bernardo, Silva, De Bruyne, Jesus, Aguero

Subs: Bravo, Danilo, Sterling, Gundogan, Mangala, Delph, Sane

Ahead of kick-off, Liverpool and Sevilla's Under-19 sides have met in their Uefa Youth League clash. Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City's youngsters all recorded victories in their opening matches yesterday and a little earlier today and the Reds have made it a clean sweep for English sides; they have put tonight's opponents to the sword at Prenton Park.

It's gonna be a busy night. Here's a reminder of all the games we will be staying across tonight.

Liverpool vs Sevilla
NK Maribor vs Spartak Moscow
Feyenoord vs Manchester City
Shakhtar Donetsk vs Napoli
FC Porto vs Besiktas
RB Leipzig vs Monaco
Real Madrid vs APOEL
Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund

Just how important is it for a team to get their group campaign off to a winning campaign? According to research conducted by bwin, very. 75% of clubs who win their opening group game progress to the round of 16 – 47% finish top of the group. On average, clubs require a minimum of 10.1 points by the end of the group phase to qualify from the group stages – 13.2 points are needed to win the group – so three points tonight will go a long way in ensuring a team is still in the competition come next February.

Champions League stats

Conversely, 74% of clubs who lose their opening group game fail to progress to the round of 16. Liverpool's last appearance in this competition during the 2014-15 season saw them avoid that pitfall, narrowly beating Ludogorets in their opening matches. The three straight losses and two draws that followed meant their campaign was over by Christmas, however.

Champions League stats

In (sort of) Liverpool-related news, Naby Keita missed out for RB Leipzig's first ever match in this competition tonight through injury.

Meanwhile, Thomas Lemar, who Liverpool chased and chased in the final week of the transfer window, misses out for their opponents tonight in Monaco.

Sevilla team to face Liverpool tonight:

There is a Tottenham debut for Serge Aurier this evening, he comes in ahead of Kieran Trippier with Davinson Sanchez retaining his place in that back three. Dele Alli is serving a suspension, with deadline day signing Fernando Llorente among the subs.

Pep Guardiola has named both Silvas - David and Bernardo - in a Manchester City starting XI that again sees Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus partnered up front. Leroy Sane's two goals off the bench against Liverpool were not enough for him to earn a starting spot, with Vincent Kompany unavailable due to a calf injury.

A slightly battered and bruised Ederson is named in goal.

Team news is coming in from across Europe. Real Madrid host APOEL tonight and Zinedine Zidane has decides to rest Toni Kroos with Cristiano Ronaldo, who is serving a domestic ban, in to join Gareth Bale and Isco in attack. Nacho also starts alongside Sergio Ramos in defence.

Jurgen Klopp makes three changes to the Liverpool side that was thrashed by Manchester City last Saturday. Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren come back into that defence with Loris Karius replacing Simon Mignolet in goal as expected.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is made to wait again for his full debut after being named on the bench alongside the returning Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool team to face Sevilla: Karius, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Wijnaldum, Can, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Firmino.

Subs: Mignolet, Milner, Coutinho, Sturridge, Klavan, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Robertson.

BREAKING: Philippe Coutinho on the bench for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah starts.

Team news: Sevilla

Nolito spent just one year in England before leaving Manchester City for Sevilla in the summer. The Spain international has enjoyed an excellent start to the season back in his homeland, providing an assist and scoring a goal against Eibar on Saturday – only to pick up a thigh injury that has ruled him of tonight's match.

Here's the group of players to have made the journey to Merseyside.

Sevilla 22-man travelling squad to Liverpool:

Sergio Rico, David Soria, Juan Soriano, Mercado, Corchia, Carriço, Pareja, Kjaer, Lenglet, Escudero, Pizarro, Nzonzi, Banega, Franco Vázquez, Ganso, Krohn-Dehli, Sarabia, Jesús Navas, Montoya, Muriel, Ben Yedder and Correa.

Nolito scored a goal against Eibar but ended the game with an injury. Getty

Jurgen Klopp on whether Philippe Coutinho will feature tonight:

"I could [give you an idea], but I'm sure all the Liverpool supporters around the world are ready to wait another 24 hours. He is fit, he is healthy. All other information about the line-up, I think, you have to wait until tomorrow. He is here [with] no [fitness issue].

Thanks for that, Jurgen.

Team news: Liverpool

Mohamed Salah meanwhile was sent home from training on Tuesday due to illness, prompting fears he will miss tonight's clash at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp however dispelled those concerns at a press conference on Tuesday.

Team news: Liverpool

Both Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah are in contention for Jurgen Klopp's side tonight. Coutinho is hoping to make his first appearance of the season after Jurgen Klopp opted to leave him out of his plans for last weekend's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

The Reds boss suggested his playmaker would benefit from an extra training session or two after missing the start of the season through a back injury/intense transfer speculation and remained coy on the Brazil international's inclusion tonight.

Famous European Nights at Anfield™ are back tonight as Liverpool begin their Champions League campaign against the last side they faced in European competition.

Sevilla ended Jurgen Klopp's hopes of winning silverware in his first season at Anfield as the serial winners of the Europa League came from behind in Basel to win the trophy after a disastrous second-half collapse from the Merseyside club back in May 2016.

Liverpool, back in the big-time thanks to last season's fourth place finish having safely navigated their way through the qualifying phase, have the chance to exact revenge tonight and take a commanding step towards topping their group.

That is one of eight matches taking place across Europe tonight. We will have goal updates from the all over the course of the evening with all your team news on the way.
