UEFA Champions League highlights: Top five goals from Wednesday's action, including two from Bayern Munich

The first matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stage wrapped up Wednesday, and there were plenty of must-see highlights from the eight-game slate. Once again, goals came aplenty as teams from all over the continent tried to get their campaigns off on the right foot.

Here are the top five goals from Wednesday:

5. Papu Gomez, Atalanta
It was yet another offensive thrashing from the Italian darlings of last season's Champions League, defeating Midtjylland 4-0 in the opener. The best of the bench came from Gomez, who fired a rocket from outside of the box.

4. Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Salzburg
A standout from the two early games came from the American-coached Austrian team with Szoboszlai firing one from way downtown outside of the corner of the box from a seemingly impossible angle.

3. Kingsley Coman, Bayern Munich
Coman absolutely undressed a purportedly stout Atletico defense to get his club's lead to four, a total that would hold until the final whistle.

2. Luka Modric, Real Madrid
It wasn't the best night for Los Blancos on Wednesday, but there was a brief moment where a strong comeback seemed possible. Such thoughts began with Modric firing a powerful shot from outside the box into the top corner of the net that seemed to galvanize his team into thinking they could still pull out a win -- though they fell short thanks to VAR.

1. Corentin Tolisso, Bayern Munich
An absolute thunderbolt from a player making his Champions League debut that just further drove home how outmatched their Spanish opponents were on Wednesday.
