Dortmund Defeat Shambolic Arsenal, Liverpool Leave it Late to Beat Bulgarian Minnows, Seattle Win U.S. Open Cup, Bayern Munich vs. Manchester City

Is it Hump Day already? Geez. Well, in Champions League action yesterday, Arsenal had a night in Europe to forget as Dortmund easily brushed them off the pitch. They only scored two but it could easily have been five or six. Elsewhere, Real Madrid did score five to cruise past Basel, and Liverpool barely survived a scare at Anfield against Ludogorets Razgrad. Here's your lot from Tuesday's European fixtures:

Borussia Dortmund 2 - 0 Arsenal: Henry Winter at the Westfalenstadion
Borussia Dortmund 2 - 0 Arsenal: Daniel Taylor at the Westfalenstadion
Liverpool 2 - 1 Ludogorets Razgrad: Richard Jolly at Anfield
Liverpool 2 - 1 Ludogorets Razgrad: Paul Wilson at Anfield
Real Madrid 5 - 1 Basel: Sid Lowe at the Bernabéu

Back in the USA, Seattle won the U.S. Open Cup thanks to a Clint Dempsey goal. Bird has Three Thoughts.

Talking Points! Let's look back at the weekend one last time: European football returned this weekend and there were twists and turns in every domestic league. With transfer deadline signings suited up for their new clubs and squads refreshed following the extended international break, there were plenty of movers and shakers in the league tables across Europe.
