The big game
AC Milan 1-1 Real Madrid
Goals: Karim Benzema 29 (Real Madrid); Ronaldinho pen 35 (AC Milan)

These multiple winners of the competition laid on some absorbing entertainment in a high-tempo first half worthy of the final itself. The visitors were rewarded for their attacking enterprise when Milan old boy Kaka worked himself some space on the edge of the Rossoneri box and let fly with a firm drive that Dida could not hold, Karim Benzema following up to tuck away the loose ball from a narrow angle.

Milan were level within minutes, when Ronaldinho dispatched a penalty after Pepe was adjudged to have handled in the box. Almost immediately, Alexandre Pato had a goal ruled out for an infringement, and despite the second-half entrance of three seasoned marksmen in Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Filippo Inzaghi, the score remained unchanged.

The surprise
Manchester United 3-3 CSKA Moscow
Goals: Michael Owen 29, Paul Scholes 85, Antonio Valencia 90 (Manchester United); Alan Dzagoev 25, Milos Krasic 31, Alexei Berezutski 48 (CSKA Moscow)

CSKA produced a stunning first-half display to take the initiative against a youthful-looking United side that offered the visiting strikers far too much space. Alan Dzagoev took full advantage when he ran on to Tomas Necid's chested pass, and he arrowed the ball past Edwin Van der Sar from a tight angle for the opening goal.

Though Michael Owen quickly levelled with his first goal in the competition since 2005, the Muscovites moved back in front when Necid instigated a flowing move that was rounded off by Milos Krasic in spectacular fashion. And when Berezutski added a third CSKA looked set for a famous win until, that is, Wayne Rooney rose from the bench to galvanise the hosts and spare the blushes of their faltering back-line.

The other games
Bordeaux grabbed the headlines in Group A when they won 2-0 at Bayern Munich to make sure of a place in the last 16. Deprived the services of several first-teamers, Bayern threw everything they had at the visiting defence but failed to make the breakthrough. Yoann Gourcuff's header and a late strike from attacking spearhead Marouane Chamakh sealed the win for the visitors and left the Germans teetering on the brink of elimination. The second qualification slot looks set to go to Juventus, who earned a 1-0 win at Maccabi Haifa thanks to a Mauro Camoranesi goal right on half-time.

While Manchester United were struggling to contain an enterprising CSKA Moscow side at Old Trafford, Wolfsburg boosted their chances of taking second place in Group B with a handsome 3-0 win at Besiktas.

The biggest winners of the night were Marseille, who beat FC Zurich 6-1 with three of their goals coming in the final nine minutes. That resounding win keeps the French side in with a chance of stealing a qualification berth from Group C rivals Milan and Real.

Despite a late flurry of goals in Group D, there was no change in the standings as Chelsea and Porto both clinched their places in the knockout stage. APOEL battled bravely at home to the attack-minded Portuguese before eventually giving way ten minutes from time, Falcao scoring the visitors' winner from their 27th goal attempt of the evening.

Meanwhile, Chelsea stayed on course to top the group after earning a 2-2 draw at Atletico Madrid. A dull game burst into life after the break, with Sergio Aguero and Didier Drogba engaging in their own personal duel to claim two goals apiece in a thrilling finale.
