BESIKTAS 1 (Bobo 86)
CSKA 2 (Krasic 41, Aldonin 95)

Krasic gave CKSA the lead against a pitiful Besiktas side on the break, cutting in from the left and beating Rustu with a brilliant shot into the right corner. Bobo found space between two defenders to convert Uzulmez's centre. In the dying seconds of injury time Necid flicked on a throw in and Rustu fumbled Aldonin's imminently saveable shot.

Attendance : 28,000
Assists : Semberas, Uzulmez, Necid

WOLFSBURG 1 (Dzeko 56)
MANCHESTER UNITED 3 (Owen 44, Owen 83, Owen 91)

Wolfsburg should be given a two year ban from all European competition for allowing the fraud Michael Owen to score a hat-trick. The first was a HEADER from a Nani cross. Dzeko headed in the equaliser against a makeshift United defence. Obertan turned two defenders inside out in the Wolfsburg box before rolling to the back post for Owen to tap-in. Owen completed his hat-trick on the break with an excellent lob over Benaglio.

CSKA MOSCOW 2 (Necid 58, Krasic 66)
WOLFSBURG 1 (Dzeko 19)

CSKA's defence pushed up as Dzeko ran through from an onside position onto Martins' pass and blasted the Germans into the lead. Aldonin's first time cross was almost impossible to defend and CSKA's giant young striker, dubbed the new Koller, thumped a header past Benaglio. Krasic took home the points with a sensational 30 yard strike.

Wolfsburg will go through if they beat Man United by 2 clear goals.

CSKA can only go through if they beat Besiktas and Wolfsburg drop points against Man United due to Wolfsburg's superior head to head.

WOLFSBURG 3 (Misimovic 14, Gentner 80, Dzeko 87)

The Besiktas defence backed off as Misimovic ran forward then caught Arkan by surprise with an early left foot shot. More shocking defender gave Dzeko a clear run on goal, Alican stood firm to block but Gentner was allowed to gather the rebound and scored via a deflection. Besiktas' defence bailed on their goalkeeper for a second time and this time Dzeko made no mistake.

MANCHESTER UNITED 3 (Owen 29, Scholes 84, Shennikov 92 og)
CSKA MOSCOW 3 (Dzagoev 25, Krasic 31, Berezutski 47)

Necid chested down a cross releasing teen sensation Dzagoev, Evans managed to forced him wide but he scored nonetheless with an extraordinary left foot shot. Owen turned onto a deflected pass to equalise. Krasic capitalised on a poorly played offside trap to restore CSKA's lead. United's defensive deficiencies were once against exposed when Berezutski headed in a free kick at the back post. Scholes headed in a Neville free kick and a late own goal denied Europe the pleasure of a Manchester United loss.

CSKA MOSCOW 2 (Dzagoev 7, Krasic 61)
BESITKTAS 1 (Dag 92)

Dzagoev gave the Russian's an early lead with an awesome shot from 30 yards which flew inside 38 year old Rustu's crossbar. It was the teenage attacking midfielder's second consecutive Champions League goal and he looks to be a real talent. Krasic doubled CSKA's lead on the hour mark. Starting on the left flank 50 yards from goal, he nutmegged a defender, dribbled into the box, threw off another defender with a step-over then shot past a poorly positioned Rustu, it would have been a great goal but for the crappy goalkeeping. Dag blasted in a late consolation.

It will be interesting to see what the Russians do against Man United in their upcoming double header.

MANCHESTER UNITED 2 (Gentner 59 og, Carrick 78)
WOLFSBURG 1 (Dzeko 56)

Misimovic ran into Carrick on the edge of the box, while Carrick protested his innocence Hasebe swung a cross towards the back post and Dzeko got above Evra to head Wolfsburg a goal up. Giggs equalised with a deflected free kick and Carrick bagged the three points when from the edge of the D he whipped a right foot shot inside Benaglio's post.

WOLFSBURG 3 (Grafite 36, Grafite 41 Pen, Grafite 87)
CSKA MOSCOW 1 (Dzagoev 76)

Josue sent Grafite away on the counter to open the scoring for the German champions. The Russian's were dealt a hammer blow just before half time when Grafite dived to win a penalty. Guilherme's pass breeched the square Wolfsburg defence and 19 year old Dzagoev ran clear before finishing with a confident right foot shot. Grafite used his considerable bulk to hold off a defender and turn in the box to complete a debut Champions League hat-trick.
