Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Molde coach saw his team draw 1-1

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.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
