Robson tapped in Titov's centre. Holub coolly put away a rebound after Levotsky dropped Jarosic's blistering drive. Spartak soon regained the lead. Titov (I wish he played for a bigger club) caught a defender trying to clear the ball and passed to Beschastnykh who finished emphatically. Spartak blew several chances to clear a cross and Babnic headed in from close range.
Assists : Titov (x2), Jarosik

BAYERN MUNICH 5-1 SPARTAK MOSCOW
Pizarro scored both his goals from right wing crosses the first a left foot strike from Elber's cross and the second a deflected header from Sagnol's cross. Spartak were really screwed on the third goal. Elber and Pizarro were standing offside when the ball was played to Salihamidzic (who wasn't offside) however both forwards continued their run and Elber scored from Salihamidzic's centre. A superb move involving Fink and Salihamidzic set-up Elber's second. Pizarro and Kuffour went up for Robson's cross, the ball came off Kuffour and Beschastnykh was left with a tap-in. Salihamidzic and Fink were also involved in Bayern's fifth.
Assists : Elber, Salihamidzic (x2), Fink
FEYENOORD 0-2 SPARTA PRAGUE

FEYENOORD 2-2 BAYERN MUNICH
Feyenoord didn't make a good job of clearing a Bayern free kick. Thiam miss-kicked, the ball fell to Elber and his shot deflected in off a defender. Kahn let Van Hooijdonk's volley slip under his hands and on the stroke of half time Tomasson gave Feyenoord the lead. Van Hooijdonk headed down a long ball, Tomasson controlled the ball on his chest before volleying inside the post. Elber rescued a point with another tremendous first time strike.
Assists : Emerton, Pizzaro
SPARTA PRAGUE 2-0 SPARTAK MOSCOW
Kincl squeezed in a rebound after Levitsky had saved his initial shot and terrible defending allowed Sionko to score an easy second.
"I am very satisfied with our performance. Spartak were dangerous and had two good chances to score but we defended very well. We deserved to win the match and the first goal was the most important moment in the game." Sparta Prague coach Jaroslav Hrebík

SPARTA PRAGUE 4-0 FEYENOORD
Van Gastel tried to shepard the ball back to his keeper, Jarosik stuck out a foot and managed to poke the ball to Hartig (who was offside) and flatten Van Gastel in the process, 1-0. Van Gobbel pushed Sionko in the box, penalty. Labant just managed to score despite Zoetebier's touch. Kincl was given the freedom of the pitch due to Feyenoord's 50yd offside trap and calmly beat Zoetebier. Kincl headed on a cross, Jarosik rolled the ball to the edge of the box and Michalik banged a left foot shot past Zoetebier.
Assists : Jaorsik (x2), Sionko, Michalik
SPARTAK MOSCOW 1-3 BAYERN MUNICH
Salihamidzic headed in Thiam's cross. Spartak hit the crossbar twice. Elber scored an early contender for goal of the season. Santa Cruz helped on Kahn's goal kick, Elber controlled the ball with his shoulder, turned and smashed a 35yd rising, curling volley into the net. Spartak scored from a free kick when Baranov managed to find a gap in Bayern's wall. Kabanov decided to jump over Salihamidzic's cross, the ball fell straight to Elber's right foot, 1-3
Assists : Thiam, Santa Cruz, Salihamidzic
18 SEPTEMBER 2001
SPARTAK MOSCOW 2-2 FEYENOORD
Bosvelt opened the scoring with a superb left foot drive. The Spartak defence tried to play offside on the half way line with suicidal results - Tomasson scored at the second attempt despite Kabanov's brilliant initial save. Bestschastnykh's clever back heel totally confused the Feynoord defence and Robson was left with an easy run on goal. Feyenoord were punished for attempting to play offside from a free kick.
Feyenoord were camped in their own half for the majority of the match. Spartak should have won comfortably.
Assists : Beschastnykh, Ananko
