SCHALKE 1 (Draxler 54)

Greenpeace managed to abseil down from one of the roof sections and hung a huge banner protesting against Gazprom, all this with Platini in the stands. Draxler scored a fantastic goal.

CHELSEA 4 (Ramires 19, Georgievski 44 og, Ramires 55, Lampard 90)

Ramires scored a tap-in after Eto'o miscued a shot. Eto'o also forced the second, Tatarusanu saved, Georgievski couldn't put on the breaks and ran the ball into his own net. Ramires blasted in his second from Oscar's lay-off and Lampard drilled a first time shot in off a post following good work by Eto'o and Willian.

Attendance : 36,713
Assists : Eto'o, n/a, Oscar, Willian

ARSENAL 2 (Ozil 8, Giroud 15)

The Napoli defence failed to track Ramsey as he made an overlapping run onto Giroud's pass and he pulled the ball back for Ozil's first Arsenal goal. Napoli carelessly gave away possession with a sloppy throw-in near their own box, Giroud laid off Flamini's pass to Ozil before running into the box and tapping in his centre.

Attendance : 59,536
Assists : Ramsey, Ozil

DORTMUND 3 (Lewandowski 19, Reus 52 fk, Lewandowski 80 Pen)

Durm, deputising for the injured Schmelzer, laid off Mikhitarayan's pass for Lewandowski. Mandanda made one of the most embarrassing mistakes in UCL history when Reus swung in a free kick from 40 yards and he slapped the ball, stumbled backwards and fell flat on his arse as it crossed the line. 'Slapstick' the German commentator called it. N'Koulou chopped down Reus to concede the penalty.

Attendance : 65,829
Assists : Durm, n/a, Reus (won pen)

PORTO 1 (Martinez 16)
ATLETICO MADRID 2 (Godin 58, Turan 86)

All three goals were from set pieces. Martinez headed in Jouse's free kick. Porto's comedy goalkeeper Helton ran for a cross, missed and Godin equalised. Gabi played a free kick low around a wall and Turan spun before hammering a shot into the roof of the net.

Attendance : 33,989
Assists : Jouse (fk), Gabi (fk), Gabi (fk)

AJAX 1 (Denswil 90)
MILAN 1 (Balotelli 94 Pen)

Denswil got above Muntari to head Ajax into the lead. Balotelli pulled himself down off van der Horn to win the penalty. There's no way this Milan side are going to get anything from their Barcelona games this season.

Attendance : 51,692
Assists : Schone, Balotelli (won pen)

BARCELONA 1 (Fabregas 76)

Attendance : 58,128
