THIS is the season of good music, with many hot new tracks being released by Namibian artists. While it is difficult to write about them all, we do our best to highlight those who stand out and offer something a little different.

Namibia's startup entrepreneurs may be somewhat of an unsung cohort but if you've hailed a rideshare, paid for your coffee using an app, ordered takeaways online or had medicine delivered to your door on a solar powered ebike, you have local startups to thank for the pleasure.

      Man Utd dealt shock loss as Lukaku boosts Chelsea

      Manchester United's Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes (R) fights for the ball with Young Boys' Swiss midfielder Sandro Lauper (L) during the UEFA Champions League Group F football match between Young Boys and Manchester United at Wankdorf stadium in Bern, on September 14, 2021. AFP

      MANCHESTER United slumped to a shock 2-1 loss at Young Boys despite a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo in their Champions League opener on Tuesday, while Chelsea kicked off their title defence by beating Zenit.

      Robert Lewandowski struck twice for Bayern Munich as the German heavyweights inflicted a 3-0 defeat on Barcelona at Camp Nou in their first European game since the departure of Lionel Messi.

      Ronaldo, the leading scorer in Champions League history, bagged his 135th goal in the competition after 13 minutes in Bern, but Swiss champions Young Boys hit back after the sending-off of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

      The United defender saw red for a dangerous tackle on Christopher Martins before half-time. Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu equalised in the second half before Jordan Siebatcheu snatched the winner with the final kick. 

      "It's the first game in the group. We've got many games to bounce back and we must do," said United captain Harry Maguire.

      "We'll try and pick up three points in our next game and build momentum from there."

      United host Villarreal in two weeks. The Spaniards, who beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men in last season's Europa League final, drew 2-2 at home to Atalanta in the other Group F match.

      Remo Freuler gave Atalanta the lead but Villarreal responded with goals from Manu Trigueros and Arnaut Danjuma. Robin Gosens popped up with a late equaliser. 

      Romelu Lukaku broke the deadlock for Chelsea after 69 minutes at Stamford Bridge to earn the holders a 1-0 victory over Zenit, whose Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg is the venue for next May's final.

      Lukaku headed in Cesar Azpilicueta's cross to give Thomas Tuchel's team a winning start in Group H, a section topped by Juventus after the opening round following their 3-0 win away to Malmo of Sweden.

      Bayern roll Barca aside

      Alex Sandro headed Juve ahead and Paulo Dybala converted a penalty before Alvaro Morata notched a third for a side that has picked up just one point from three games in Serie A.

      Bayern stretched their record unbeaten away run in the Champions League to 19 games by sweeping aside Barca in the first meeting between the clubs since the Germans triumphed 8-2 in a one-off quarter-final two years ago.

      Thomas Mueller put Bayern on top on 34 minutes and Lewandowski netted twice in the second half to send Julian Nagelsmann's side top of Group E.

      Dynamo Kiev had to settle for a 0-0 draw at home to Benfica after Ukraine international Mykola Shaparenko's injury-time effort was ruled out for offside.

      Sevilla rode their luck in an eventful 1-1 draw against Salzburg.

      The Austrians missed two of three first-half penalties, with Karim Adeyemi firing wide from the spot and Luka Sucic hitting the post having earlier converted Salzburg's second penalty. 

      Ivan Rakitic levelled for Sevilla with another spot-kick before the interval. Youssef En-Nesyri was sent off early in the second period for the home side.

      "It was a very strange game. When you have three penalties against you, a red card, I think you have to be happy with a draw," said Rakitic.

      "I think it's a record, three penalties (conceded) in 36 minutes, I don't think it's ever happened to me."

      French champions Lille and Bundesliga leaders Wolfsburg drew 0-0 to leave all Group G teams level on one point. - AFP
