RUBIN 1 (Noboa 30 Pen)
BARCELONA 1 (Villa 60 Pen)

Kaleshin dived for the first penalty and incredibly Iniesta was actually fouled for the equaliser.

I was checking soccerway for this weeks Bundesliga results, to see how Wolfsburg did, then checked the Champions League scores at full time just in case they carried attendances (they didn't) but what did I see? Assists for penalties!

Assists : Kaleshin (won pen), Iniesta (won pen)

COPENHAGEN 2 (N'Doye 28, Vingaard 37)

A longball sent N'Doye away on the counter but his task was helped greatly by the stupidity of goalkeeper Tzorvas who was 30 yards off his line, N'Doye fired a shot around him and into an empty net, great finish. Tzorvas was made to look equally silly from a Vingaard free kick.

Attendance : 50,000

BARCELONA 5 (Messi 22, Villa 33, Messi 45, Pedro 78, Alves 93)

Cisse flicked on a goalkick with an extravagant back heal volley, sending Govou clear of the Barca defence to score a shock opener. The Pana defence ball watched Messi run onto a Xavi through pass to equalise. Villa tapped Barca in front after Busquets headed on a corner. Only two tall players in the box to mark and the Greeks still screwed that up. Messi danced through the Pana defence to make it 3-1 heading into the break. Messi blew the chance of a guaranteed hat-trick with an awful penalty. Pedro tapped in a fourth after Messi hit the inside of a post. Alves HEADED in a fifth from a sublime Messi return pass.
