Bayern Munich’s perfect start to the 2015 UEFA Champions League was ended last night at the Emirates, but not for want of trying after Manuel Neuer’s stunning first-half save from Theo Walcott. In the last 14 minutes substitute Olivier Giroud and Mesut Özil got Arsenal off the mark. Below is a summary of last night’s games, courtesy of


BATE Borisov 0-2 Barcelona: Two second-half goals from Ivan Rakitić ensured Barcelona opened up a three-point cushion in the group as BATE remain in third thanks to Roma's draw.

Bayer Leverkusen 4-4 Roma: It was the equal highest-scoring draw in UEFA Champions League history as both teams lost two-goal leads. Javier Hernández had put Leverkusen 2-0 up within 19 minutes only for Daniele De Rossi, on his 501st Roma appearance, to level before half-time. Miralem Pjanić and Iago Falqué seemed to have won it for the visitors but in the last seven minutes Kevin Kampl and Admir Mehmedi had other ideas to keep Leverkusen in second.


Arsenal 2-0 Bayern München: Bayern’s perfect start was ended, but not for want of trying after Manuel Neuer's stunning first-half save from Theo Walcott. In the last 14 minutes substitute Olivier Giroud and Mesut Özil got Arsenal off the mark.

Dinamo Zagreb 0-1 Olympiacos: Olympiacos moved alongside Bayern on six points, three ahead of Dinamo and Arsenal, courtesy of Ideye Brown's goal with 11 minutes to go. It gave the Greek champions, who had lost all three road trips last term, a second straight away win in the group.


Porto 2-0 Maccabi Tel-Aviv: Porto were captained by Rúben Neves, at 18 nearly two years younger than any previous UEFA Champions League skipper, and his team triumphed through goals late in the first half from Vincent Aboubakar and Yacine Brahimi.

Dynamo Kyiv 0-0 Chelsea: Dynamo dropped two points behind Porto, yet remain one clear of Chelsea, after a match that had chances at both ends, but no goals.


Zenit 3-1 Lyon: It is three victories out of three for Zenit, who had never previously won even their opening two group games. They had the perfect start on three minutes through Artem Dzyuba. Although an incredible 49th-minute flick from Alexandre Lacazette levelled matters, Hulk’s equally fine effort and Danny ensured Zenit stayed three points above Valencia.

Valencia 2-1 Gent: Valencia are five points ahead of Lyon and Gent but required two own goals as Gent pushed them all the way. Sofiane Feghouli’s touch was turned into the visitors’ net by Lasse Nielsen on 15 minutes but before half-time a superb shot by Thomas Foket made it 1-1. However, with 18 minutes left, José Gayà’s cross-shot deflected in off Stefan Mitrović.
