A last-gasp penalty from Cristian earned Fenerbahce a precious away goal as they drew 1-1 with Salzburg in the opening leg of their meeting.

It was a bitter blow for the hosts, who had thought a 69th-minute goal from Brazilian striker Alan would be enough to secure a narrow advantage ahead of the return match in Turkey next week.

However, his compatriot Cristian was successful from the spot in the sixth minute of stoppage-time after Andreas Ulmer was penalised for a handball in the area.

Norwegian champions Molde were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Legia Warsaw.

Daniel Chima gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men the lead on the half hour but that was cancelled out after 68 minutes by Vladimir Dvalishvili.

Molde then had to see out the last 16 minutes a man down after Fredrik Gulbrandsen was shown a second yellow card.

Ludogorets Razgrad will take a 2-1 advantage to Serbia for the second leg of their tie with Partizan Belgrade.

The Bulgarians trailed to a Saso Markovic goal four minutes into the second half, but hit back with strikes from Marcelinho (53) and Mihail Aleksandrov (67).

Any hopes of a late equaliser for Partizan were ended with the dismissal of Milos Jojic five minutes from time.

The match between APOEL Nicosia and Maribor also finished 1-1, with Esmael Goncalves giving the home side a 22nd-minute lead and Marcos Tavares grabbing what could be an important away goal for the Slovenians after 64 minutes.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
