  2. Post update

    Let a team like Bayern Munich play their game and you will be bang in trouble. That's a valuable lesson learned by Roma tonight.

  3. Manager reaction

    Roma 1-7 Bayern Munich


    Roma boss Rudi Garcia: "I am the first one who made the mistake, it is not the fault of the players, the first half approach was my fault entirely.

    "It was the wrong strategy, we should've been more closed up and try to hit them on the counter-attack.

    "It was a tactical collapse more than a psychological one. We weren't aggressive enough and allowed Bayern to play."

  4. Post update

    Some great quotes coming up from Roma manager Rudi Garcia...

  5. Player reaction

    Roma 1-7 Bayern Munich

    Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi: "We must learn the lesson after this loss. We were waiting for this game, the whole city was waiting for it.

    "I am sorry for the fans, they clapped their hands for us at the end of the game and it hurts because they are great and they deserved something better."

    Paul in Norwich: Nathan Ake, what a fantastic performance. Zouma faultless. Willian and Hazard exceptional. Filipe Luis class. And two Chelsea old school heroes on the scoresheet. Can't wait for the United game this weekend... Can't wait.

    Vardan in London: Still don't think Man City will beat Roma away, or Bayern. It's Europa League for them at best I'm afraid.

    What was Pep's pre-match team-talk then? Do what I tell you and you'll come back in 5-0 up?

  8. Player reaction

    Roma 1-7 Bayern Munich

    Thomas Muller

    Bayern forward Thomas Muller: "We did an excellent job in the first half. This is because we were prepared so well by the coach.

    "At half-time we were 5-0 up but there was still 45 minutes to go, that was a bit weird."

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Italian football expert Mini Rzouki on BBC Radio 5 live:

    "You can say it's a collapse. But this is the most beautiful I have seen Bayern play.

    "The tactics, the strategy, there was no formation you could understand because it was players moving around all over the place."

    On Ashley Cole's performance:

    "You can say to him that the reason why you are at Roma is because you have the experience to deal with these situations and he didn't tonight. But you can't blame this all on him."

  11. Manager reaction

    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor

    Jose Mourinho

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "We played seriously. We faced the game in the right way and even at half-time at 3-0 the boys kept playing at a good speed and with good quality.

    "I was surprised that Eden Hazard gave the ball to Didier Drogba for the penalty. I wasn't particularly pleased, no. I have my choices and Hazard is number one. Because it was a goal, I was happy.

    "Loic Remy has a problem in his groin, I don't know. Normally a muscular problem is a muscular problem so a couple of weeks. I was not expecting Didier to play for 75 minutes but he had to come on.

    "Now he has to improve his condition, we know the player he is and we know he can still give us a lot."

    Brett Flanders: That's the best Chelsea have played this season and Hazard was immense. Really impressed with Ake, his pass for Hazard was fantastic.

    Donald Oluoch: ‏With such form, Man Utd's scouting report of Chelsea will highlight the skill and ease with which Eden Hazard is tearing up defences.

    Atoyebi Oyelere: Why is it that Cech keeps clean sheets and Courtois does not? A tell-tale sign to Mourinho of who should be the number 1?

    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor

    Didier Drogba

    Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, speaking to Sky Sports: "To finish [my time at Chelsea] with a penalty and start again with a penalty was nice symmetry. I am really happy because of the way we played today. We scored one, then two and didn't stop, we continued to play.

    "I wanted to score that goal. I asked him [Eden Hazard] and he said it was OK. This is the spirit we have in this team. We share goals and we are happy when everyone is scoring and it will help me for my confidence.

    Ready to play against Man Utd if Diego Costa and Loic Remy injured? "The manager will decide but I am available for the team as always."

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Jose Mourinho sets very high standards, like Alex Ferguson did at Manchester United in his prime. He will not accept slackness or sloppy play.

    "From the first minute to the last their play was exceptional. Because they move ball sharply Maribor could not get near them. But not just with the ball, their running was excellent too."

  19. Post update

    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "A fantastic, professional performance from Chelsea. They maintained the highest standards all the way through.

    "Loic Remy going off with an injury is the only down side.

    "The way they passed the ball and kept going to the end of the game was a very, very professional performance."

  20. Post update

    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor

    "Anything other than a stately walk in the park for Jose Mourinho's boys, and I'll be amazed."

    That's what I said at 17:48 and for once a prediction has come off. Hardly earth-shattering, admittedly, but they don't come along too often.

    Chelsea to go all the way? They certainly look the Premier League's best bet...


    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor

    Eden Hazard almost has a hat-trick after a brilliant mazy run - but that's full-time. At least four Maribor players ask the Belgian for his shirt at full-time. That's how good he was.


    That's 37 goals in the Champions League tonight - a record for one night...

    Tim Arstall: Hazard must have ice running through his veins with penalties like that. No hesitation, just stares down the keeper.

    Aaron Buxton: Hazard has been brilliant tonight but the one player who just seems to get better every time I see him is Willian.

    Aashish: Good training session for Chelsea before the Manchester United match.

  24. GOAL

    Chelsea 6-0 Maribor - Eden Hazard

    What a goal this is! Nathan Ake picks up the run of Eden Hazard with a quarterback style pass over the top, Hazard's touch to bring it down is fantastic, and he cuts inside the last man before curling into the roof of the net.

    Chelsea on for their biggest ever Champions League win.

  30. Post update

    Roma 1-7 Bayern Munich

    Arjen Robben cuts in from the flank again and feeds second-half substitute Franck Ribery who cheekily chips the ball over Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis and into the net.

    Before kick-off Xherdan Shaqiri is introduced and he pounces on a spill from the home goalkeeper to score a seventh with his first touch. There are still 10 minutes remaining.

  31. Post update

    Chelsea 5-0 Maribor

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "You have to be an exceptional player to score like that. You are told to look at the goal as the goal doesn't move. Hazard does the complete opposite and waits for the goalkeeper to move.

    "The goalkeeper moves out of the way and then you don't even have to hit it that hard.

    "Interesting that Hazard took it though and not Drogba. It shows that Chelsea have this great team ethic."

    On youth product Dominic Solanke coming on for Chelsea:

    "We talk about players coming through the youth system. Chelsea produce a lot of players for other clubs through theirs.

    "They have fantastic players and Dominic Solanke is now fortunate he has now got a chance in the first team.

    "But let's remember, a lot of Manchester United players did that for a long time. A lot of players came through their system but didn't play for United."

  34. GOAL

    Chelsea 5-0 Maribor - Eden Hazard (Pen)

    Eden Hazard

    He doesn't even look at the ball. Waits for the keeper to move, and just slotted home by Eden Hazard.

    Michail Antonio celebrates

    It is now 2-2 in the big game in the Championship, with Michail Antonio scoring his second of the night to bring Nottingham Forest level at Watford. It is also 2-2 at Rotherham, where Cauley Woodrow has brought Fulham back into the game after Jonson Clarke-Harris had given the home side the lead.

    Two goals from Brett Pitman have helped Bournemouth to a commanding 3-0 home lead against Reading, while goals from Federico Macheda and Adam Le Fondre have made it Cardiff 3-1 Ipswich.

    Johnnie Jackson's goal for Charlton made it 2-0 against Bolton but a Dean Moxey goal has given Neil Lennon's side hope. At Carrow Road it is 1-1, with Leeds striker Souleymane Doukara cancelling out Russell Martin's opener for Norwich.


    Chelsea 4-0 Maribor

    What a strike! Brilliant hit from Willian, who was invited to shoot by a retreating defence and obliged, smashing a 20-yarder against the underside of the crossbar!

    Richard Parfitt: Penalty should be retaken, Cech nowhere near his line, what's the point of the ref behind the goal? I say this as a Chelsea fan.

    Agubata Odinaka: The fact that Chelsea can also play in a completely different way than this is proof that they are a team built for all weather.

    Tor Noppharat: Love how willing Willian is, coming to cover as right-back when Ivanovic got stuck high up the pitch. Lovely!

    A slick counter sees Radja Nainggolan cross for Gervinho who nods a consolation and the first goal Bayern have conceded since 30 August.


    Chelsea 4-0 Maribor

    Remember Zlatko Zahovic? He was brilliant at Euro 2000 for Slovenia. Long hair, silky skills - bit of a Dimitar Berbatov sort of player.

    Well his son Luka Zahovic has just come on. If players from the early 2000s are going to start having sons in the first team, I'm going to start feeling very old indeed.

    On Maribor's missed penalty that hit the post:

    "Well everything is going for Chelsea. Cech dived full length and maybe he knew something we didn't and that was why he was smiling beforehand.

    "But another six inches inside the post and Cech wouldn't have got it. Disappointing for Maribor."

  45. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 4-0 Maribor

    What a hit that is! Oscar shoots from 20 yards, the keeper doesn't move and it pings a yard wide of the far corner...

  46. European latest

    Guillermo Fernandez levels for Athletic Bilbao in Porto, it's 1-1 there and the Spanish club need at least a draw to keep any realistic chances of qualifying for the knockout stages alive.

    They currently only have one point. If it stays like this, Porto and Shakhtar will be on five.

    As it stands, Burton are going top of League Two as they lead 4-2 at Carlisle. Leaders Wycombe are currently drawing 1-1 at Exeter. Shrewsbury have also hit four, at home against Bury, with Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro bagging a hat-trick.

    Oxford have come back from a goal down to lead 3-1 at Northampton with Danny Hylton scoring two of their goals. Elsewhere, Miles Storey's goal has made it Portsmouth 2-1 Stevenage and a Josh Coulson own goal has given Cheltenham a 2-1 lead at Cambridge.

    "I'm surprised that no Chelsea substitutes are warming up. I know he had to make one with Drogba coming on for Remy.

    "With Hazard still looking sharp, you would think he might be thinking about giving one or two a rest before the weekend."


    Roma 0-5 Bayern Munich

    Roma start the second-half against Bayern in the fashion of a team who have had a talking to in the changing room.

    Gervinho races clear and hits the post and Alessandro Florenzi is denied by a brilliant Manuel Neuer save.


    Chelsea 4-0 Maribor

    There wasn't much that Mitja Viler could do about that own goal, but coach Ante Simundza has instantly hauled him off. Unless he's injured that's a bit harsh...

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Hazard gets lucky and he knows it. He wheels away and looks to the sky.

    "He has fired the cross in, looking for Didier Drogba two yards out, and it hits the defender's heel and it goes in the back of the net.

    "It just goes to show how easy it is for Chelsea as Hazard has got in twice in the last few minutes."

  57. GOAL

    Chelsea 4-0 Maribor - Mitja Viler OG

    Eden Hazard celebrates with teammates

    Chelsea have a fourth and it's a great move. Willian feeds in left-back Filipe Luis on the overlap, he has so much composure to skip over a tackle and take all the time he has before rolling over a cross. Eden Hazard retrieves it, puts it back across goal and it goes in off the heels of Mitja Viler.

  58. Post update

    Chelsea 3-0 Maribor

    Almost brilliant! Eden Hazard plays it to Didier Drogba, whose return reverse ball is perfectly weighted for the Belgian. It's crying out for a first time laces, but Hazard tries one more turn and is tackled. Put your foot through it!

    Championship update

    Federico Macheda celebrates

    Goals flying in in Europe but it is all very tight in the Championship, with no team holding more than a one-goal advantage at the break. Michail Antonio's goal pinned Watford back almost as soon as they had taken the lead to give Nottingham Forest parity at Vicarage Road. Peter Whittingham's goal means it is Cardiff 1-1 Ipswich.

    A Ross McCormack penalty has brought Fulham level at Rotherham and Lewis Dunk's goal means it is Huddersfield 1-1 Brighton. Elsewhere, Charlton lead Bolton and Wolves have the advantage against Middlesbrough.

    The race for second in Chelsea's group looks on as it is now 1-1 in Germany between Schalke and Sporting Lisbon. Nani had given the visitors the lead but they have had Brazilian defender Mauricio sent off and Chinedu Obasi has levelled.

    Shakhtar Donetsk celebrate

    It seems big wins away from home are catching on, because joining Bayern Munich are Shakhtar Donetsk.

    They are making mince meat of Bate Borisov and lead 6-0, a result which will see them go at least second in Group H. Luiz Adriano has a hat-trick already.

  80. Bayern hit five

    Roma 0-5 Bayern Munich

    Robben celebrates

    Speaking of cricket, there is an impressive first-innings score being built in Rome - impressive and vicious from Bayern Munich.

    Arjen Robben makes a run from outside the full-back near the touchline to get in behind the defence and the Dutchman is picked out to power his second of the game home. That's 4-0.

    And the punishment is not ending. A handball in the area sees a penalty awarded and Thomas Muller converts low into the corner.

    That's 35 minutes, five goals. A bludgeoning.

    Mike Hall: Jose Mourinho is going to try to shake hands with the Maribor coaching team and walk off in 5 minutes I expect.

    Andy: Lights out for Maribor at the Bridge already.

  89. Barca two up, Bayern three

    Messi celebrates

    Bayern Munich and Barcelona are seemingly in sync. Earlier they both scored within seconds of each other and they have just replicated the feat.

    Andres Iniesta zips a ball into Lionel Messi's feet and the little magician needs no further invitation to nudge the ball home, they lead Ajax 2-0.

    Bayern extend their lead at the Stadio Olimpico against Roma to 3-0 with Mario Gotze curling their second from 18 yards and Robert Lewandowski heading a third from six yards. They are in ruthless form.

    Maribor's attacking line-up could come back to bite them now. Chelsea suddenly look like cutting through at will - we could have a goalfest on our hands here.

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "It definitely hits the hand and the referee is right on the spot.

    "Willian lifts the ball and the hand is there. There will be arguments about whether it was in an unnatural position or ball to hand, but it is handball.

    "I don't think there is any argument that it is a penalty."

    Familiar name on the scoresheet! Didier Drogba, whose last Chelsea goal was in the Champions League final in 2012, slams home the penalty. Clinical.


    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor

    Soft? Willian sees his pass hit the arm of Ales Mertelj and it's a penalty. Didier Drogba has form on these...

    Former Manchester United winger Nani has scored for Sporting Lisbon in Schalke.

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Not bad for a third striker, Drogba. I know he might be more senior and he may not have the pace and running ability he once had but he is still a huge danger.

    "Not only for Maribor, but at Old Trafford, if he plays. He will certainly cause that back four (Man Utd) problems."

  98. Who's next?

    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor

    Diego Costa is out. Loic Remy is injured. So who is next behind Didier Drogba? Well, Chelsea have plenty of players of course - but they have 26 (TWENTY-SIX) out on loan.

    Youngster Dom Solanke is on the bench tonight and could get some game time in the coming weeks.


    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor

    That's it - Loic Remy is done. He hobbles off in pain and Dider Drogba is on in his place. A longer night than anticipated for the big man.

    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor - Loic Remy

    Danny Mills

    BBC Radio 5 live at Stamford Bridge

    "Remy looks like he has hurt himself. He has scored and then winced instantly. It's maybe his groin.

    "But Chelsea switched the play, Remy got isolated, cut inside and shot. A fantastic finish into the bottom corner."

  101. GREAT SAVE!

    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor

    Maribor react well to going behind, Agim Ibraimi lets fly from 25 yards and forces Petr Cech into a decent save.

    Meanwhile, Loic Remy isn't well...

  102. Goals at Barcelona and Roma

    Goals have arrived in two of tonight's big games.

    Arjen Robben scores

    In Barcelona, Neymar profits from a Lionel Mess run and pass to curl the Catalan club into the lead against Ajax. A smart finish from 15 yards by the Brazilian. You can read more about it in our live text commentary of that game.

    And in Italy, Roma trail Bayern Munich early on. Arjen Robben cuts inside from the right to fire left footed across goal. It is vintage Robben - you know where he is going to put the ball but no-one can do anything about it.

    Championship update

    The first goal of the night in the Championship has gone to Huddersfield, who have taken the lead against Brighton at the John Smith's Stadium through Jacob Butterfield's close-range finish. Elsewhere, it is 0-0 across the board.

  104. GOAL

    Chelsea 1-0 Maribor - Loic Remy

    Loic Remy scores for Chelsea
    Loic Remy grimaces

    What a ball! John Terry plays the role of Cesc Fabregas, picking out a cracking pass from the halfway line to send Loic Remy away. Remy may have been just offside, but he cuts inside and curls home a low shot from 20 yards.

    Remy then grimaces in pain, has he popped his groin in scoring that goal?

    "Oscar was unfortunate there as there was definitely a hand on his shoulder and he was off balance. The referee definitely could have given that as penalty."

    Kritt Normsaskul: Credit to Maribor for not sitting back and getting men forward. This could be a good game.

    Steve Johnson: Signing Fabregas was a master stroke. He's the general of the midfield and this game will be won by Chelsea from the midfield.


    Chelsea 0-0 Maribor

    Better from Chelsea though as they work the ball out to Filipe Luis on the left, he pops it inside to Oscar, he tries an overhead kick but goes to ground with an arm on his shoulder - penalty? Referee Danny Makkelie is unmoved.

  108. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Maribor

    This is good stuff from Maribor, playing attractive football and piling bodies forwards. This could be a sterner test than Chelsea usually get at home...

  109. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 0-0 Maribor

    That is a chance! Maribor have lined up with two up front and they throw men forwards on their first break. They work it out wide well and when the cross comes in, Damjan Bohar heads over the bar. Great chance!

    Loic Remy

    On Chelsea being without injured striker Diego Costa:

    "You have got Loic Remy, who comes in this evening, and you have got Didier Drogba. They can survive.

    "That midfield area is so strong. They have such a strength in depth in their squad. They can at least last for a couple of months without Diego Costa, if that is the way it has to be."

  111. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Maribor

    The Maribor fans making a great din as Chelsea keep the ball as if they own it. Branislav Ivanovic bombs on down the right and gets clear - but his cross is tame. Cesc Fabgregas then pings one into the feet of Loic Remy but he's not Diego Costa and the move falls down.

    Manuel Pellegrini

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "I think maybe we didn't have the pace in the second half, and didn't move the ball as we did in the first half. We didn't have one chance to score and then they scored that penalty.

    "I don't want to talk about the referee.

    "Everyone must know that football is for 95 minutes, we are away against a difficult team and they drew the game but I don't think that is just a revelation for the Champions League.

    "We have nine points more to play for. After we have played them we will see who has more."

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is asked whether he agrees that his side are now outsiders to qualify:

    "Why? There are nine points to play for."

  130. Messi on for another record?

    Barcelona v Ajax (19:45 BST)

    Lionel Messi

    Barca boss Luis Enrique and Ajax counterpart Frank de Boer are firm friends from their time together as Nou Camp team-mates between 1999 and 2003 - but there will be no old pals' act tonight.

    Both men are desperate for three points as they look to move closer to Group F qualification. Barca have taken three points from their opening two matches, beating Apoel Nicosia before losing at Paris St-Germain, while Dutch champions Ajax have drawn each of their outings.

    Oh, and there's an outside chance that Lionel Messi could set another record tonight. The Argentine magician would move level with Real Madrid hero Raul as the Champions League's all-time goalscorer if he bags a hat-trick. Unlikely but not impossible...
