As it happened

  1. 2237: 

    A cracking night of football then. I hope you enjoyed it half as much as I did.

    I'll be back tomorrow for some Europa League action. Join me there. Cheers.

  2. 2233: 

    Hours ago you may recall that I asked the question, can we have as dramatic a night as a US Presidential election?

    Well I think we sorted that one out. Give me a Celtic defeat of Barcelona, a late winner for Chelsea in an excellent game, a power cut, three late goals for Manchester United and a new Blackpool manager over the naming of the most powerful man in the world any day.

    And the best thing is, we don't have to wait four years for another one.

  3. 2233: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Salman Anjum on Twitter: "What's going on in Champions League? Man Utd not exactly playing well yet only team with 12 points. Happy days."

  4. 2230:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford Bridge

    "Parkhead probably finest European night atmosphere I've ever experienced - but suspect tonight was in another dimension. Stunning win."

  5. 2227: 

    Have I not mentioned that Manchester United have won their group? My apologies if not, I thought I had. They are through, and they have already won Group H.

  6. 2226: 

    There's no pleasing Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes it seems.

    His side whacked Lille 6-1 tonight. He must be pleased you'd think? Not overjoyed...

    He said: "The opponent was not in top form tonight. I do not want to put a dampener on things but that is what it is."

  7. 2224: 

    Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell on BBC Radio 5 live: "We've beaten Manchester United and Barcelona in the past, but with the expectations - not inside the club, but outside of the club - this ranks as the best. From our point of view Barcelona are the greatest team in the world. Neil Lennon got his tactics spot on. We were organised, compact and structured - and had that bit of quality going forward to get the two goals."

  8. 2224: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Niklas Lanwehr on Twitter: "Utd need to break the bank in January and get in a rock solid defender - or Barca, Real, Bayern and Dortmund will score for fun."

  9. 2218: 

    Celtic goalscorer Victor Wanyama:

    "This is unbelievable. Today we just worked hard, we were good as a team, compact and got the three points. We're very happy. I can't describe it - we're very, very glad. It's unreal. We beat one of the best teams in the world. It was not easy and we're just happy.

    "It's always important when you're playing this team to keep the ball and today we were very good, calm with the ball. That kept us in the game - we were good on the ball and believed in ourselves. We got the first goal, which was very important and gave us energy to go on.

    "We've been working hard at set pieces and knew we'd get one. We did it well. I'm happy for the team, we did well tonight.

    "It's too early [to say if we'll qualify for the knockout stage], we just need to keep doing the same. If we do the same and get results, we're going to be there."

  10. 2217: 

    Manchester United's Ryan Giggs, speaking after the 3-1 win over Braga that sealed qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League: "I think we were all disappointed [we didn't progress from the group stage last year]. It was not good enough and we knew we had to do something about it and we have. Long may it continue.

    "We have really good strength in depth at the moment and it shows with Chris Smalling playing his first game in a long time tonight. It is good to have that strength when you have two games in a week and it is looking good for us."

  11. 2217: 

    Opta Sports on Twitter: "35 - There were 35 goals in the Champions League today; the fifth-most ever on one exact date and the most since 21/10/2008 (36). Glut."

  12. 2211: 

    And some more from Neil Lennon on a special night for Celtic:

    "We thought we could affect them at corners, at the back post against Jordi Alba. Charlie Mulgrew is one of best dead ball experts around, and Victor Wanyama gets better and better. We had to weather a storm, you know it's coming and there's not much you can do. Tony Watt gave us a new lease of life and scored a great goal. He'll go down in the history books of the club.

    "The club has been the in doldrums. This is not the pinnacle, there is more to come from this team, but the progression is great. It gives us a great chance [of qualifying]. We go to Benfica next and will have to raise ourselves again, but we'll cross that bridge when it comes to it. I want them to enjoy the moment and then get back to domestic action. When I came in I said I wanted to bring the thunder back and I've never heard anything like that."

  13. 2210: 

    Here is a very proud Celtic manager, Neil Lennon:

    "It's right up there, one of the proudest moments of my career. This is monumental. On the anniversary of club it was a very special occasion. We wanted to do ourselves justice and we surpassed that. We've beaten the best club in the world. It was a stiff examination and we came through it with flying colours."

  14. 2209: 

    Former Bolton manager Owen Coyle on BBC Radio Scotland:

    "It's an unbelievable night for Scottish football. Celtic have just taken care of the best team in the world. That's why we love this game."

  15. 2208: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Matthew Schembri on Twitter: "Floodlight robbery from United!!"

    Kit Chang Wong on Twitter: "It's good to point out that all British sides won this evening!"

  16. 2205: 

    Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster: "It's tremendous. Words can't describe it. We put in so much effort away [at the Nou Camp] and couldn't see it through, but today we have and we're delighted. We have a fantastic squad; whoever comes in can do the job.

    "Even with injuries everyone was tremendous and played their part. We deserved it in the end. We defended really well. We had a good look at them a couple weeks ago and knew what we wanted to do. We didn't do much wrong in the Nou Camp, but we did it all today."

  17. 2204: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Brendan Bennett on Twitter: "I'll tell you Watt, Celtic have been a Forster reckon with over these two games..."

  18. 2204: 
    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FULL-TIME UPDATE

    Juventus thump Nordsjaelland 4-0 in Turin in Group E. The 3-2 result at Stamford Bridge means the Danes leave the competition but the three remaining sides are almost neck-and-neck in the chase for two spots.

    Group G is now all to play for, thanks to Celtic's 2-1 win over Barcelona in Glasgow and a brace from Oscar Cardozo sealing the same winning scoreline for Benfica at home to Spartak Moscow. Any team in the group can still make it through to the knockout stages.

  19. 2203: 
    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FULL-TIME UPDATE

    Big wins in Group F, with Bayern Munich and Valencia overpowering Lille and BATE Borisov 6-1 and 4-2 respectively. The Germans now top the table, with Lille condemned to an exit.

    It's a huge result in Romania in Group H, with Galatasaray, who propped up the table before kick-off, defeating CFR Cluj 3-1. Manchester United beating Braga means the Turkish team have thrust themselves back into contention.

  20. 2202: 

    Someone give Tony Watt a call-up to the Scotland team, surely?

    Any 18-year-old who can say "I saw Victor Valdes and just put it in the corner" will go far.

  21. 2201: 

    Celtic goalscorer Tony Watt: "It will take a couple of hours for that [the result to sink it]. I just saw Victor Valdes and put it in the corner. I couldn't believe it, it's probably the best moment of my life.

    "We'll look back and say, 'wow, we've beaten Barcelona in the Champions League' - it doesn't get better than that. The crowd were like a 12th man, I've never heard anything like it, the place was rocking."

  22. 2200: 

    FC Barcelona on Twitter: "Congratulations to @CelticFC for well-earned victory a day after their 125-year anniversary."

  23. 2158: 

    Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo: "We've got a crucial three points. It was crucial for us to win this tough home game. They are a very good side. Now it's probably going to go down to the last kick of the last game in this group.

    "The spirit that my group showed again to keep going to the end - we knew we had to score at the end and we did so. It was good that Victor Moses got on the end of that corner.

    "In the first half we put them under pressure which is how we scored both goals.

    "We knew what kind of pressure we'd be under and we didn't want to expose ourselves too much. We knew we could score with the last kick, and that is exactly what happened.

    "Oscar has tremendous ability and his goal wasn't easy at all. It was a half-volley, very difficult, but he is a Brazilian international.

    "John Terry is a massive player for us and we're glad he's back and available for us. He is going to be our leader going forward."

  24. 2158: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Henry in Surrey on text: "For as long as I know him my Spanish exchange student is never going to hear the end of this! Come on Celtic!!"

    Roger in Surrey on text: "United are the only side in the Champions League with a 100% record. You can say it's an easy group with no recognised names but that in fact puts more pressure on United to win whilst the other teams have nothing to lose. It's a good qualifying performance from United and RVP has been instrumental in their success."

    Matt on text: "Fantastic result for Chelsea, although Ryan Bertrand's performance was worrying. Srna was left unmarked all night."

    Dave in Manchester on text: "Re 2056 Mark Jackson. That was United showing City how it's done (or how to win a penalty correctly)."

  25. 2153: 

    Chelsea defender Gary Cahill: "Shakhtar Donetsk were gery good, and at times it looked like they played five up front. They pushed people forward but I thought we played well. They are a fantastic team and are pleased with three points.

    "They were a quality team but it was great impact from Vic with his head. It's fantastic we got over the line in the last minute."

  26. 2153: 

    So a quick recap then. Chelsea are now level on points with Shakhtar Donetsk in Group E.

    Manchester United are home and hosed, and have qualified from Group H.

    And Celtic, who BEAT BARCELONA tonight, are second in Group G on seven points.

  27. 2151: 

    Chelsea's winning goalscorer, Victor Moses: "We deserved to win the game today, particularly in the second half where we dominated. I only played 10 minutes but it was good to get the winning goal.

    "The three goals I've scored so far for the club have been with my head. I'm delighted.

    "We knew their keeper wasn't good at kicking and we capitalised on it. We did our best and we're delighted with the three points.

    "Every game is crucial for us at the moment and I'm looking forward to Juventus."

  28. 2150: 

    Well that was an exciting last half hour wasn't it? Good grief.

  29. 2149: 
    FOOTBALL LEAGUE UPDATE

    Tranmere Rovers have gone two points clear at the top of League One as two goals in the last 11 minutes gave them a 2-0 victory at basement club Hartlepool United. Andy Robinson (penalty) and substitute Cole Stockton were the men on target.

    Ryan Lowe's first-half goal gave MK Dons a 1-0 victory over Leyton Orient.

    In League Two, Burton Albion came from behind to win 2-1 at Plymouth with Robbie Weir scoring the 79th-minute winner.

  30. 2149:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford Bridge

    "Victor Moses has dug Chelsea out of a rather large hole there. Shakhtar stay top but Chelsea leapfrog Juventus and set up the meeting with the Italians perfectly."

  31. 2148: 

    So Manchester United are safely through as winners of Group H. Four wins out of four. Job done.

  32. 2148: 
    MANCHESTER UNITED QUALIFY FOR LAST 16
  33. 2147: 
    FULL-TIME- Braga 1-3 Manchester United
  34. 2145: 
    GOAL- Braga 1-3 Manchester United - Javier Hernandez (90 mins)

    What a mess of a goal! Antonio Valencia gets clear of a tired Braga defence, he cuts the ball back to Wayne Rooney, who backheels it on to Javier Hernandez. Hernandez skips around the keeper, tries to walk it in but his shot is terrible and easily blocked by a defender. However the Mexican gets another bite of the cherry and scrambles it in from a yard out.

  35. 2144: 

    Into stoppage time for Manchester United now. This is a clasic United display in many ways. Have they played well? No. Are they going to win? Yes.

  36. 2144: 

    Former Scotland manager Craig Brown on BBC Radio 5 live: "This is one of the famous victories in the history of Celtic. I thought it would be a close game. But I didn't think for one minute Celtic would score - never mind win."

  37. 2141: 

    There are still three minutes of normal time to play in Braga, while Rod Stewart is in tears at Celtic. What a night.

  38. 2138: 
    FULL-TIME- Chelsea 3-2 Shakhtar Donetsk
  39. 2138: 

    What a few minutes! Let's fill that lot in.

  40. 2138: 
    GOAL- Braga 1-2 Manchester United - Wayne Rooney (85 mins)

    Wayne Rooney steps up and thumps the spot-kick high into the net. Fine penalty.

  41. 2137: 
    PENALTY TO MANCHESTER UNITED

    Manchester United get a late penalty. Javier Hernandez's shot is saved, and Wayne Rooney is tripped as he latches on to the rebound.

  42. 2136: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 3-2 Shakhtar Donetsk - Victor Moses (90 mins)

    Chelsea substitute Victor Moses wins this game right at the death, rising high to head in a corner from the right from no more than six yards out. Deadly finish.

  43. 2136: 
    BREAKING NEWS- CELTIC BEAT BARCELONA 2-1

    Chris Mwas on Twitter: "It's a not D-day for Celtic..it's W-DAY! What a wicked duo! Watt & Wanyama!"

  45. 2135: 
    FULL-TIME- Celtic 2-1 Barcelona
  46. 2133: 
    GOAL- Braga 1-1 Manchester United - Robin van Persie (80 mins)

    Great finish. Robin van Persie runs on to a through ball, Braga goalkeeper Beto begins to come out and Van Persie punishes him by curling brilliantly in from 25 yards. Is that the goal that sends United through?

  47. 2132: 
    GOAL- Celtic 2-1 Barcelona - Lionel Messi (90 mins)

    I'm sorry Celtic fans. I really am. Time to panic a tad. It's another brilliant save from Fraser Forster, clawing out a low shot from Pedro, but that man Lionel Messi is free to rifle into the net.

  48. 2130: 

    Into the last few minutes in Glasgow and London. Two cracking games, one amazing result on the cards.

  49. 2130: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Shane McMenemy on Twitter: "I'm not sure my jaw will ever leave the floor. What a game this Celtic-Barca match is!!"

    James Dale on Twitter: "Are Barca now officially worse than Kilmarnock?"

    Justin Hoggard on Twitter: "Watt did I just see..."

  50. 2128: 

    Tony Watt, the scourge of Barcelona! He's in again on a long-ball through, he goes to ground and Javier Mascherano looks guilty but nothing is doing. Looked like a pull on his shirt to me I have to say!

  51. 2128: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Cronie, Dingwall, via text: "Rangers fan but Scotland supporter first. The performance from Celtic tonight has been phenomenal. Forster has been a rock and Watt's finish was deadly."

    Rob, London, via text: "Please, oh please let Celtic hold on. If they do I'll do everything including getting up on time tomorrow morning."

  52. 2127: 

    It really was a very good finish from Tony Watt though. I saw him score a cracker at the weekend as well. The future is bright in Watt.

  53. 2127: 

    Celtic 2-0 Barcelona. Just wanted to repeat that one for you all.

  54. 2124: 
    GOAL- Celtic 2-0 Barcelona - Tony Watt (83 mins)

    Oh this is remarkable. They may be the best team in the world, but they'd struggle in the SPL on this evidence. Again Barcelona cannot deal with the most straightforward of attacks. Fraser Forster lumps a route one clearance down the park, Xavi makes a hash of clearing it and 18-year-old substitute Tony Watt runs on to plant an assured finish into the corner. Bedlam at Celtic Park.

  55. 2124: 

    Lionel Messi whips in a free-kick, but Fraser Forster is there again to make the save.

  56. 2122: 
    CLOSE!

    That five-year drought for John Obi Mikel is threatened again as he volleys just wide from 20 yards after Andriy Pyatov rather flaps at a corner. Unlucky.

  57. 2122: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Rick, Canterbury, via text: "Re 2115: DON'T SAY THAT!"

  58. 2122: 

    Manchester United have not been their fluent selves tonight. We've seen hardly anything since the break. Braga looking good.

  59. 2120: 

    Into the last 10 minutes at Celtic and at Chelsea. Chelsea are ending their game on top, but you would have to say that Shakhtar deserve at least a point.

  60. 2119: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Sandy, Conon Bridge, via text: "Wanyama is like a giant stag patrolling his territory. Tremendous find by Lenny and Co. Come on you Bhoys in green!"

    Wonderful use of imagery Sandy. A+

  61. 2117: 
    SUBSTITUTION

    Manchester United send on their biggest of big guns, as Robin van Persie replaces Danny Welbeck.

    Barcelona also tinker with their armoury, as David Villa has snuck on some time when I wasn't looking.

    Phil, Chelmsford, via text: "This Will.I.An gets everywhere! Excellent footballer, great solo artist, in an internationally renowned band. He'll be judge on a talent show next!"

  63. 2117: 
    PENALTY APPEAL

    Chelsea want a penalty here as Ramires goes down in the box under a challenge from Darijo Srna. Referee Carlos Carballo waves it away, and on second viewing I think he got that right. Srna pulled out of it I reckon. Chelsea ending strongly though.

  64. 2115: 

    Into the last 15 minutes at Celtic, who are closing in on a historic win.

  65. 2113: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Casey Hanson on Twitter: "Fraser Forster, what a keeper! Any Prem club would be lucky to have him."

    TK on Twitter: "Forster, take a bow. Whatever happens, across two legs, he has been a rock."

  66. 2112: 

    We lost 12 minutes in that delay in Braga, so Manchester United still have half an hour remaining. How will that delay affect the two sides? Braga were well on top when they went off.

  67. 2112: 
    SUBSTITUTION

    Here come the cavalry for Barcelona, who have 20 minutes to break down Celtic. Cesc Fabregas is on in place of Alex Song - who was risking a red card with a few of his challenges - while Gerard Pique is on for Marc Bertra.

  68. 2111: 
    GREAT SAVE!

    Great save again, as Fraser Forster keeps out a Lionel Messi shot with a strong left hand. He is some keeper.

  69. 2110: 
    SUBSTITUTION

    Manchester United are bringing on Rio Ferdinand for Jonny Evans - and play is restarted.

  70. 2110: 

    We have lights in Braga.

  71. 2110:  
    Gary Lineker, BBC Sport

    "A cold Wednesday night in Glasgow. What you got Messi?"

  72. 2109: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL FOR CHELSEA

    Chelsea think they are ahead as John Obi Mikel heads in a free-kick from Juan Mata - but the Nigerian was clearly offside. Mikel denied his first goal in five years!

  73. 2108: 

    Barcelona are still having all the ball, and Celtic still look fairly comfortable at dealing with them.

  74. 2108: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Dan Wilkinson on Twitter: "This blackout is the most exciting thing to happen in the MUFC game."

  75. 2108:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport chief football writer at Stamford Bridge

    "John Terry pedalling away on an exercise bike on the sidelines. Chelsea may need added defensive authority if this carries on."

  76. 2106: 

    Shakhtar's weak link is definitely the keeper - another howler of a clearance from Andriy Pyatov almost allows Chelsea in again but they get away with it.

  77. 2106: 

    So we are into the last half hour at Celtic and at Chelsea - and what a chance for Celtic!

    A long ball forward is allowed to bounce by Barcelona, and Charlie Mulgrew is in momentarily. He dithers a bit though, and Victor Valdes it ot quickly to smother his shot. Almost 2-0 and dreamland.

  78. 2104: 

    Barely 15 minutes after emerging for the second half and the Manchester United and Braga players are back down the tunnel and in the dressing rooms after a power cut causes the floodlights to go off. Sir Alex Ferguson will welcome the impromptu opportunity to talk again with his players, who have looked distinctly off key so far. Braga lead courtesy of Alan's 49th-minute penalty.

    Cameron Laws on Twitter: "We play in the dark, we play in the daaaaark, we're Man United, we'll play in the dark!"

  80. 2101: 
    CLOSE!

    Double save from Fraser Forster to deny Alexis Sanchez. The first one was particularly good.

    And at Chelsea, the home side go close as Eden Hazard's free-kick drifts through the box and sails just wide.

  83. 2059: 

    Now then - chaos here in Braga as the floodlights go off!

    Some of them have flickered back into life, but we have a delay on the cards now.

  84. 2058: 

    Barcelona are still knocking heavily on Celtic's door, as Lionel Messi hits a curling shot which Fraser Forster clings on to.

  85. 2057: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK

    So close to a third for Shakhtar! A corner is half cleared and left-back Razvan Rat thumps in a 25-yard curler which beats Petr Cech and hits the base of the post. Fabulous hit.

  86. 2056: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Sophie Gayter on Twitter: "Alan. Average name, but outstanding talent. He's been hugely impressive in both matches against Utd."

    Mark Jackson on Twitter: "Re 1911. What was that about United showing City how it's done?"

    Adam Bull on Twitter: "Didn't realise BBC were on first name terms with all these Champions League goalscorers... Alan, Oscar, Willian..."

  87. 2054: 

    A high octane start to the half then. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Chelsea look a mess down their left. Not sure how much difference Ashley Cole would have made, but his stock is rising all the time in his absence here.

  88. 2054:

    You don't save these. No nonsense name, no nonsense penalty as Alan steps up and buries a penalty into the roof of the net.

  90. 2050: 
    PENALTY TO BRAGA

    Braga win a spot kick as Jonny Evans is lured into a challenge on Custodio - penalty.

  91. 2050: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 2-2 Shakhtar Donetsk - Willian (47 mins)

    Stop me if you've heard this one before - but Shakhtar score after another surge down their right. Fernandinho picks out a beautiful pass to carve open the Chelsea back line, Darijo Srna cuts the ball back and in a carbon copy of his earlier goal, Willian slides it home.

  92. 2049: 

    Dani Alves drives in a cross-shot which Fraser Forster gathers well at his near post as Barcelona start the second half in pressing mood.

Quality and opportunity breathe a welcome stage to show why this country's teams are welcome on the global stage. How great is they have gone ahead in both games first. They're competing, not just taking advantage of the occasion."

    Jack, Worcester, via text: "Not mentioning united much, is it really that boring?"

    Yep Jack - afraid so.

  97. 2044: 

    If you're after some half-time reading, may I suggest our interview with former Manchester United man Quinton Fortune?

    In it, the South African describes Sir Alex Ferguson's hairdryer, pranks at Old Trafford and nominates a surprising name for the joker in the United pack.

  98. 2040: 

    I might have to retract my 'lucky' shout for Fernando Torres's goal tonight. I've just seen it again and he did well to make himself big and charge down that clearance. Fair play to him.

  99. 2039: 
    FOOTBALL LEAGUE UPDATE

    It's been a quiet night so far in the Football League. Tranmere Rovers, who will go top of League One with a draw, are level at 0-0 at basement club Hartlepool, while Ryan Lowe has scored for MK Dons as they lead Leyton Orient 1-0 at the break.

    In League Two, Plymouth are drawing 0-0 with Burton Albion.

  100. 2039: 
    CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HALF-TIME UPDATE

    Goals aplenty from Bayern Munich who are 5-0 up against lowly Lille, with Claudio Pizarro scoring a hat-trick inside 33 minutes. Bayern have now scored more than 500 goals in the history of the European Cup, and 750 in all European competitions. Elsewhere in Group F, Valencia lead BATE Borisov by two goals, a scoreline which would push them up to top the group.

    In Chelsea's Group E, goals from Claudio Marchisio, Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Giovinco have Juventus three to the good at home to Nordsjaelland.

    In Group G, it remains goalless between Benfica and Spartak Moscow, and with Celtic leading Barcelona in Glasgow the Portuguese and Russian sides are in danger of being left behind.

    Burak Yılmaz's sole strike has Galatasaray a goal up at CFR Cluj, and it's the only goal of the opening 45 minutes in Group H.

  101. 2036: 

    So Celtic leading Barcelona at the break. Are they going to pull this off? Barca will surely bring on Cesc Fabregas and David Villa at some point though.

  102. 2033: 

    A forgettable first-half draws to a close in Braga with the game goalless. Manchester United will be satisfied with that scoreline as things stand, though, with a point all they will need to progress to the last 16. Eder's header against the post was closest either side came to scoring, while for United Jonny Evans's soft header was no trouble for Braga keeper Beto.

  103. 2032:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford BridgeHALF-TIME- Chelsea 2-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

    "Great entertainment at Stamford Bridge. Shakhtar Donetsk the better side but Oscar's superb finish gives Chelsea a precious lead."

  104. 2031: 

    Another cross from the right causes Chelsea problems but Gary Cahill just about gets it out. There are more goals in this one.

  105. 2031:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport chief football writer at Stamford Bridge

    "Brilliant vision from Oscar puts Chelsea 2-1 up against run of play - but another dreadful clearance from keeper Pyatov. This time a header. Oscar made a difficult opportunity look deceptively easy. Composure under pressure to find the empty net with keeper stranded."

  109. 2030:

    Oscar again for Chelsea. Lovely balance from the youngster to drift away from a challenge and fire in a shot which Andriy Pyatov this time does well to turn away.

    Ethan Friskney-Adams on Twitter: "Somebody PLEASE tell me what is going on in Munich?! 5-0? What is this?!"

  111. 2026: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 2-1 Shakhtar Donetsk - Oscar (40 mins)

    Give this man an Oscar! What a finish this is. Again, Shakhtar Donetsk keeper Andriy Pyatov does not cover himself in glory, coming out of his area to sweep up and heading the ball away. However, Oscar is alert, chesting the ball down just outside the centre-circle and then smashing in a shot back over Pyatov and into the net. Scored from, what, 35 yards? Brilliant technique.

  112. 2025: 

    Shakhtar Donetsk are destroying Chelsea down their right - Ryan Bertrand is having a very testing time. But hang on...

  114. 2023:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford Bridge

    "Few murmurs of anxiety sweeping around Stamford Bridge. Shakhtar look full of confidence and are showing plenty of invention in possession. Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo urging his players not to drop too deep."

  115. 2023: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK

    More woodwork action than a double DT lesson in Glasgow, as Barca hit the post again. They take my advice and put a cross in, with Dani Alves picking out Alexis Sanchez to head back across goal and against the foot of the post. Can Celtic hang on?

  116. 2021: 

    Fernando Torres flicks a header wide as Chelsea push forward now. Great game this.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea reject Claudio Pizarro has just completed a hat-trick for last year's vanquished finalists Bayern Munich, who are already 5-0 up at home to Lille. A bashing in Bavaria.

  117. 2020: 
    CLOSE!

    What a goal this would have been. Brilliant, one-touch, easy on the eye stuff - no, not Barcelona, Shakhtar Donetsk.

    Fernandinho drives through the Chelsea defence, finds Luiz Adriano making a run in behind, he then flicks it into the path of Alex Teixeira who thumps a low shot inches beyond the far post. So close to a marvellous strike.

  118. 2017:

    Simon Horowitz on Twitter: "Bate Borisov surely deserve a nod tonight - with just one foreign player in the whole team. Grass roots indeed."

    I'll give them a nod - and point out that they are 2-0 down in Valencia.

  119. 2016: 

    Manchester United continue to look vulnerable in Braga, with Alan the latest to threaten with a low shot which David de Gea pouches well.

    Paul, via text: "Tito Vilanova is destroying everything that made Barca unbeatable. If this was Pep in charge Celtic wouldn't have a chance."

  121. 2015: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK

    He's some player, Lionel Messi. He plays a one-two with Andres Iniesta on the edge of the box, before cracking in a drive which shudders against the crossbar. Celtic survive - and on second viewing all the credit in the world to Fraser Forster, who got the slightest of fingertips to that one. Brilliant save.

  122. 2013: 

    It's quitened down a bit at Chelsea after that manic opening 15 minutes. Shakhtar are a very good watch though, pinging it around for fun. You can see why they've been on such a good run.

  123. 2012: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Adam, Darlington, via text: "I'm not even close to being a Celtic fan but my word, how much do I want to be in that stadium right now. Amazing."

  124. 2011: 

    The game at Celtic could take a very familiar pattern now. Attack v defence.

    But in the first meeting of the teams, Celtic were fairly comfortable at soaking it all up. Barca actually scored with their first cross on that occasion - in stoppage time. Do they lack a Plan B? I suppose their Plan A is so good they don't really need one...

  125. 2010: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Phil Mansell on Twitter: "Celtic are doing it again...Wanyama is brilliant."

    Danny Charity on Twitter: "Considered taking a bet on Celtic to score first tonight. Decided against it - Celtic fans, I expect to be personally thanked."

    Sean Sonnekus on Twitter: "For Barca's beautiful play they can't do the basics. Alan Hansen would have a field day on the analysis. Got to defend set pieces."

  126. 2009: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK

    Braga are getting close to an opener against Manchester United. First, Ruben Micael is not closed down by the United defence but his long-range effort flies just wide, before Eder smashes a header against the post with David De Gea beaten. The visitors are yet to really trouble the Braga defence.

  127. 2008:

    Stuart, Swindon, via text: "I wonder if Fergie has realised that the Paul Scholes replacement can come from within - via Wayne Rooney. The guy is probably Utd's best passer after Scholes himself."

  128. 2006: 
    GOAL- Celtic 1-0 Barcelona - Victor Wanyama (21 mins)

    Celtic lead! With a very stereotypically British goal. Mikael Lustig swings in a corner and Victor Wanyama gets up above Jordi Alba to thump in a header. Have some of that.

  129. 2006: 
    BREAKING NEWS

    Blackpool have confirmed the appointment of Michael Appleton as their new manager. Appleton has signed a one-year contract and leaves Portsmouth.

  130. 2003: 

    You're not wrong Austin. What a game this is - Fernando Torres has certainly had his wheat-based breakfast cereal this morning. He wriggles clear inside the penalty area but should pull the ball back, instead choosing to shoot into the side-netting from an acute angle.

  131. 2002: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Austin Bobmanuel on Twitter: "Must say that Shakhtar will give Chelsea a tough match. Good side."

  132. 2002: 
    CLOSE!

    Scary moment for Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal. Darijo Srna's corner from the right forces an attempted header behind from Ryan Bertrand, who succeeds only in diverting it towards the bottom corner of his own goal. Only Cech's alertness saves him and his team, and he can palm the ball away. It's still 100 miles an hour at the Bridge.

  133. 2000:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford Bridge

    "Definitely not a case of defences on top at Stamford Bridge. Plenty of comic potential at both ends from what we have seen so far."

  134. 1959: 

    At Braga, all is quiet for Manchester United. Leandro Salino has put a shot a mile wide for the hosts, who have had the better of the opening exchanges, but there has been little to report.

  135. 1959:

    Adil Majid on Twitter: "My 3-2 and thriller at the Bridge is on."

  136. 1959: 
    YELLOW CARD

    Lionel Messi has shot over the top for Barcelona at Celtic, while Alex Song has just seen yellow for a foul in midfield. Celtic will be pleased with this start.

  137. 1956: 

    Between those goals, Shakhtar came close when another cut-back from the right was hammered goalwards by Henrik Mkhitaryan - but it was blocked, before Fernando Torres had a run and shot saved at the other end. It's quite a game.

  138. 1955: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk - Willian (9 mins)

    What a start. Two half chances at either end after Fernando Torres's opener, and now an equaliser. Fernandinho drives at the Chelsea defence down the right channel and cuts the ball back perfectly for Willian to side-foot back across Petr Cech and into the corner.

  139. 1954: 

    Slight scare for Manchester United inside the first five minutes of their game against Braga as Elder nips ahead of Jonny Evans to flash a ball across the face of goal but, fortunately for the visitors, no Braga player is waiting in the box and the danger passes.

  140. 1952: 
    GOAL- Chelsea 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk - Fernando Torres (6 mins)

    I was about to say that Andriy Pyatov was not too convincing from that free-kick, and he has had a shocker here as Chelsea lead. Seconds after Fernando Torres almost gets in on the end of Oscar's cross, he scores as he charges down a clearance from the keeper and sees the ball fly in. Lucky? yes. But they all count.

  141. 1951: 

    Another free-kick at Chelsea, for the home side this time, and David Luiz draws a save from Andriy Pyatov...

  142. 1950: 

    Sir Alex Ferguson has opted to line Manchester United up in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation, with Wayne Rooney playing behind the strike pair of Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck. Nani and Ryan Giggs are in midfield, with Anderson just behind them and Antonio Valencia taking up the right back position. Patrice Evra at left back, with Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans ahead of keeper David De Gea in the centre of defence.

  143. 1949: 

    Barcelona have - as expected - made all the running in Glasgow so far. No moments of danger for the Bhoys yet though.

  144. 1948: 

    First shot of note of the night comes at the Bridge, where Yaroslav Rakitskiy smashes in a low free-kick for Shakhtar - Petr Cech makes the save easily enough though. Chelsea haven't got going yet.

  145. 1946: 

    Sloppy start from Chelsea, as David Luiz and Ryan Bertrand get in a muddle and concede a needless corner. Gary Cahill is in the right place to smash it clear though.

  146. 1945:

  148. 1943: 

    Shakhtar have won 19 out of their 20 games so far this season in all competitions - with Juventus the only team to stop the run in a 1-1 draw. Not just a smart tracksuit top to worry about for Chelsea then...

  149. 1941:

    "My players are all internationals so I'm not gambling. It's the right decision. JT is an important player for us and will continue to be so.

    "We have to play much better [than the previous meeting] and not allow them to get into the game. The passing has to be much better and our play has to be shorter so we can press the opposition. We need to be aware of their threat and we mustn't allow them to counter-attack."

    "Celtic were just seconds away from picking up a point at the Nou Camp two weeks ago, only to be undone by a stoppage-time goal. Neil Lennon's men defended like lions in Catalonia and will need to be on top of their game again if they are to trouble the superstars of Barcelona.

    "A Barca win tonight coupled with a Spartak defeat against Benfica will assure the visitors of first place in the section, while a draw would be enough to ensure a place in the last 16. Celtic sit second in Group G and taking anything from this one would be a real boost for their qualification hopes."

    PERMUTATIONS

    Manchester United, Barcelona and Shakhtar could all seal their places in the knockout stage of the Champions League tonight.

    Sir Alex Ferguson's United are firmly in control of Group H, having won all three games so far, and just a point against Braga will be enough to see them progress. They can also go through as group winners if they win and Cluj fail to beat Galatasary.

    Barcelona are in a similarly strong position in Group G and the Spanish giants will progress if they beat Celtic. A draw may also be enough for Tito Vilanova's side, but only if Spartak Moscow are unable to pick up three points against Benfica.

    In Group E, leaders Shakhtar can seal their passage into the last 16 with a win over Chelsea.

    No team can confirm their progress to the next stage in Group F, with FC Borisov, Bayern Munich and Valencia all on six points.

  186. 1844:  
    Phil McNulty, BBC Sport Chief Football Writer at Stamford BridgeChelsea v Shakhtar Donetsk (19:45 GMT)

    "Chelsea were outplayed by Shakhtar Donetsk in their 2-1 defeat at the Donbass Arena - now the gifted Ukrainians come to Stamford Bridge at the head of Group E attempting to cement their position. Roberto Di Matteo's side know they cannot afford to drop any more points after defeat in Donetsk and a draw at home to Juventus. It makes for a fascinating encounter in a group buiding towards a thrilling conclusion."

    So we are into the business end of the Champions League group stages then, and this is where it gets really interesting.

    Do we expect United to qualify this evening? Can Chelsea return to winning ways against a decent Donetsk team? Can Celtic keep out Lionel Messi and co? Let me know your thoughts.

    Meanwhile, Manchester United are in Portugal to face a Braga side who gave them a royal scare last time out.

    United rallied from 2-0 down to win 3-2 and keep up their 100% record in Group H, but Sir Alex Ferguson's men will need another strong night on the campaign trail to book a passage into the knockout stages this evening.

    However, a point for United would be enough for them to go through to the last 16.

  189. 1836: 

    There may not be any extra time, 20-minute celebratory speeches or talk of the 'fiscal cliff' on the way over the next few hours, but there could yet be tears after seeing millions spent in vain.

    Chelsea and Manchester United are both in action, and there are certainly two tough games on the cards.

    Roberto Di Matteo's defending champions are at home against Ukraine champions Shakhtar Donetsk - who beat the Blues just a fortnight ago - and they need a win to keep in touch at the top of Group E.

  190. 1830: 

    Last night, the world watched on as two giants of red and blue competed for success across a huge landmass.

    There were thrills, spills, plenty of drama and almost a late equaliser which threatened to take us into extra time.

    Over the pond of course, Barack Obama won through in the end, thanks to a crucial result in Ohio, and now it is the turn of our own blue and red factions to fight for glory in Braga and west London.

    Can we possibly match the drama of a US election in the Champions League? Yes. We. Can...
