Dortmund couldn't even make it into the second round this time, failing to win a single game in the group dominated by Tottenham and Madrid - not even against Cypriot minnow APOEL. Don't forget, here the season is very tough. Five managers have already been fired this season.

The round of 32 draw takes place on Monday and will be streamed live in UEFA.com's DrawCentre from 13:00CET.

If goals were the big story of the group, then one record goes against the grain.

Atletico had to win to have a chance of advancing, but although Saul Niguez's second-half header put the visitors ahead, Chelsea drew level through a Stefan Savic own goal. From that point onwards it is a free draw so group-stage rematches and any all-Premier League clashes could be back on the agenda from that point onwards.

United equalled their club record of 40 successive home matches unbeaten with this 2-1 win.

"But in my opinion the team is well, we have only lost one game and it was in the last minute, but no excuses". The Real Madrid legend became the first man to score in every single Champions League group stage game - hitting nine in the process.

Juergen Klopp's hopes of producing Liverpool's sixth European title depend on his ability to shore up a defense prone to lapses in concentration that saw a 3-0 lead at Sevilla become a 3-3 draw.

PLAYERS rarely seem delighted with a place in the Europa League, the continent's consolation cup.

Bayern defender Jerome Boateng will face his brother, Kevin-Price Boateng. "For this reason, I think it could be problematic".

— By Ciaran Fahey in Berlin.

The goal fest was not yet complete, though, as Radamel Falcao gave the French champions a second and Porto's Tiquinho Soares added a late fifth goal.

Virtually every team can claim to have played a part in that statistic, but two, in particular, reached special heights. Perhaps Jupp Heynckes is leading Bayern into genuine contention once more.

Atletico have pedigree in the tournament.

— By Andrew Dampf in Rome.

Corentin Tolisso struck twice as Bayern Munich beat Paris St Germain 3-1 and briefly threatened to usurp the Ligue 1 side at the top of Group B. The defeat in Munich prompted club chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi to call for a "wake up" and, according to French media, coach Unai Emery is in the firing line. The games decided the fates of many teams.
