Diaz laid off Safari's pass, Delgado touched it back to Strellar and Salah fired his pass into the right corner. Strellar headed in the winner from Delgado's corner. Chelsea's first group stage home defeat for a decade.

NAPOLI 2 (Higuain 29, Insigne 67 fk)
DORTMUND 1 (Zuniga 87 og)

Klopp was sent off for raging at an official after Higuain headed Napoli into the lead - he claimed Higuain pushed Schmelzer to score (he didn't). Weidenfeller joined his coach when he ran out of the box and punched a ball. Insigne scored with an amazing free kick that was hit with such velocity and precision there isn't a goalkeeper in the World that could have saved it. Zuniga sliced a cross into his own net but ten man Dortmund failed to put a nervy Napoli defence under further pressure.

Attendance : 60,000
Red Card : Klopp 30 (Dortmund coach), Weidenfeller 47 (Dortmund)

ZENIT 1 (Hulk 58)

Miranda headed in a corner before Hulk equalised with a customary explosive shot. Turan scrambled his team back in front after Zenit failed to clear a free kick. Turan played in Baptistao with a reverse and a superb first touch took him in between two defenders and he switched the ball onto his right foot before stroking a shot into the right corner. Beautiful goal.
