A review of Wednesday's Champions League action not involving British clubs, including wins for Bayern Munich and Juventus.

Juventus kept the destiny of Champions League Group E wide open with a comfortable 4-0 win over Norwegian side Nordsjaelland in Turin.

Juve, who now sit a point behind Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk, were never troubled with Claudio Marchisio opening the scoring after six minutes and further goals added by Arturo Vidal, Sebastian Giovinco and Fabio Quagliarella.

In Group H, Galatasaray boosted their hopes of qualification with a 3-1 win over Cluj in Romania, which guaranteed Manchester United's progression as group winners.

Burak Yilmaz scored a hat-trick for the visitors with Modou Sougou replying for Cluj, with the two sides now tied in second place on four points.

Benfica beat Spartak Moscow 2-0 in Portugal to leave the Celtic three points clear in second place following their famous win over Group G leaders Barcelona.

Oscar Cardozo's second-half double was enough to provide Benfica with their first group stage win, while Spartak's slim hopes ended after having Nicolas Pareja sent off in the 76th minute.

Bayern Munich brushed aside pointless Lille 6-1 at the Allianz Arena to open up Group F, with Claudio Pizarro leading the rout with a first-half hat-trick.

Bastian Schweinsteiger had set Bayern on their way with a sixth minute opener and further goals were added by Arjen Robben and Toni Kroos, while Salomon Kalou replied for the French side.

Valencia joined Bayern on nine points with a 4-2 home win over BATE Borisov.

Two goals from Sofiane Feghouli and one each for Jonas and Roberto Soldado saw off the Ukrainians, for whom Renan Bressnan and Dmitri Mozolevski got on the scoresheet.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
