'Being good defensively is not a crime'

Benfica 0-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho tells BT Sport: "We were in control, David de Gea did not have one save to make. I never felt we could concede a goal and were solid defensively. Sometime I feel being good defensively is a crime, but that is a way of getting results. We are one point from qualifying and one victory away from winning the group with two games at home to play. A good game, solid.

"I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that. We had a little bit of a strategy, especially on set-pieces to make him uncomfortable. We put men around him on corners so he cannot come out. He risks a lot, but only top keepers do that. He was unlucky for the goal.

"Marcus Rashford suffered something in his knee.

"We knew the Benfica pressure could not stay for 90 minutes. The amazing defensive work Liverpool did against us, Benfica could not do that for the whole game. Without any pressure, we knew the goal would arrive. We forced a little more and with quality and sharpness we could have killed the game more."

Chelsea had just 40% of possession tonight.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: "It was fair. It was a difficult game against a good team. Above all in the first half we suffered, our performance was good but for sure our football is different than today.

"We suffered possession and it wasn't easy in the first half, despite scoring two goals. The change of the system wasn't good, but when you are in a difficult situation you have to change and sometimes to improvise.

"When we changed in the second half the situation was changing. David Luiz had a little problem in his calf and in this moment I can't risk my players. we are playing always the same players."

'I wish him well for the future'

Benfica 0-1 Man Utd

Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic tells BT Sport: "We scored a goal from Marcus Rashford's free-kick and we had more chances. We played well in the second half and played well enough to take three points. It was hard for us but we managed to win.

"The manager said to us to try and shoot and get some crosses towards their goalkeeper because he is young and playing in his first game. This is football and I know he is a great goalkeeper and I wish him well for the future.

"We had control, some difficulties in the first 30 minuets but then we controlled the pitch. We used our experience. We could not find the second goal but did not make any mistakes at the back."

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof: "Benfica is a good team and defended well with their experienced players.

"It felt good. I spent five years here and I am happy for the win. I did not feel anything, just happy to play and I wanted to help my team get the win."

We've had the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history tonight, while Jupp Heynckes (72y 162d) became the oldest manager ever to coach a game in the Champions League.

The Bayern boss did OK.

'Celtic will be happy with 3-0'

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Pat Bonner

Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

There probably should have been more goals for Bayern Munich for the amount of possession and chances that they’ve had. Celtic will happy to get out of it with 3-0. They made a couple of chances late on in this game which will give them a little bit of confidence maybe for the return, but they’ve got to come up with a better plan than what they had tonight.

They’ve got to defend better but they’ve also got to have some sort of plan that when they have the ball they just can’t keep giving it away when they’re under pressure.

That Edin Dzeko goal just gets better and better.

"You'd hit 50 of those in training and get one perfect," says Frank Lampard on BT Sport.

"An incredible goal. Sublime"

Ian Wright

Former Arsenal & England striker on Radio 5 live

I saw a very organised Manchester United and Marcus Rashford trying to get forward and make a difference.

'A good result for both teams'

Chelsea 3-3 Roma

Chelsea

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard: "It is a good result for both teams but when you are 2-0 up at home you must win the game. Edin Dzeko is a fantastic striker and we stay first in the group.

"Now we have to play in Rome but we will try to win the game. After two defeats it's not easy to bounce back."

'A professional away performance'

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

Phil Neville

Former Man Utd defender on BBC Radio 5 live

Professional job done. A really good away performance. They've dominated the second half. This Benfica side is not as good as the Benfica sides in years gone by but they were really dogged and determined. So it was a really good away performance by Jose Mourinho and his side.

It never looked in real doubt the result, they never looked like conceding. In Marcus Rashford they had the one player who looked like he could score the goal and he did.

Tears in goal

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

An emotional Champions League debut for Benfica keeper Mile Svilar. His error cost his side but the 18-year-old also showed huge promise. He is close to tears at full-time and apologises to the crowd before being consoled by Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

RED CARD - Luisao

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

An unnecessary challenge. Benfica's captain Luisao was booked early on and he now flies into a tackle on sub Scott McTominay and is shown a second yellow. Off you go. You should know better.

Tune into 5 live Social after the football and have your say on anything about tonight's games. But here's a few suggestions.

Does the style of play matter as long as Manchester United keep winning games?

Plenty of talk about Romelu Lukaku but just how important is Marcus Rashford to this Manchester United side?

Is this Chelsea squad strong enough to compete domestically and in Europe?

CLOSE!

Chelsea 3-3 Roma

Cesc Fabregas puts in a good cross and Gary Cahill, bandaged like a Scooby Doo villain after an earlier clash to the head, loops his effort over the top.

Last chance?

FOUR minutes added on. Both teams still going for the win. The best group game I've seen in a long old time.

Super Mario saves Juve?

Juventus 2-1 Sporting

Juventus have taken the long route, but they might just have got there against Sporting Lisbon.

With six minutes to go, they lead for the first time at home to the Portuguese side with Mario Mandzukic finding the net.

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

Benfica ending the game camped in the United half, the men in black holding out so far. David de Gea hasn't had a shot to save of note.

DISALLOWED GOAL

Bayern Munich 3-0 Celtic

Scott Sinclair has a really lovely finish chalked off for offside. That was very tight, and the former Swansea man's curling shot across goal was top class. Not to be.

Exceptional.

Haven't played Brendan Rogers' bingo for a while. The group, spirited and character are bound to be out tonight.

CLOSE!

Chelsea 3-3 Roma

Edin Dzeko for the hat-trick?! NO!

He should score too. In between two Chelsea defenders, free header from six yards out but he loses his bearings and heads wide!

What a game. Not the game I expected.

GREAT SAVE!

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

Here is Anthony Martial, straight into the action. He dances around his man to canter into the area but he can't beat Mile Svilar, who saves at his near post.

Another Chelsea sub, another player not too happy to come off. Eden Hazard has done his best tonight though with two goals, Willian gets the final 10 minutes.

SUBSTITUTION

Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

His goal has given Manchester United the lead but Marcus Rashford limps out of the action. A worry. On is Anthony Martial though, with a good record of scoring goals from the bench this season.

SUBSTITUTION

Chelsea 3-3 Roma

On against his old club - it's Antonio Rudiger on for Davide Zappacosta. A point keeps Chelsea top of the group.

Mbappe? Tick.

And now Neymar completes your Paris St Germain strikeforce bingo card.

The Brazilian's free-kick gets through a flaky Anderlecht wall and beats an unsighted Matz Sels in the home goal.

GOAL - Chelsea 3-3 Roma

Eden Hazard

Great game!

Eden Hazard can add scoring fine headers to his game now as he finds space inside the penalty area to glance Pedro's dinked cross into the far corner. Brilliantly placed.

Chelsea 2-3 Roma

Will it be three defeats in a row for Chelsea? Roma have been class. They've had 65% of possession and arelooking for more.

GOAL - Chelsea 2-3 Roma

Edin Dzeko

Two former Manchester City men combine to great effect! Aleksandar Kolarov's free-kick on the left wing is whipped in brilliantly, Edin Dzeko loses his marker and is able to flash a powerful header into the back of the net in front of the travelling fans.

Roma are going top of the group as it stands...

Barcelona over the horizon

Barcelona 3-0 Olympiacos

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi racks up a Champions League century.

Olympiacos give away a free-kick on the edge of the box as the man himself is hacked down. Messi dusts himself down and curls a pinpoint free-kick home to register his 100th goal in 122 games in Europe.

And three minutes later he turns provider, twisting the blood of a full-back and pulling back to Lucas Digne who drills into the bottom corner.

Done and dusted.

Chelsea 2-2 Roma

Roma have been very impressive tonight and they deserve to be level. That Edin Dzeko goal will live long in the memory. It's the Italians who look more likely to win this now.

'Caught out!'

Benfica 0-1 Man Utd

Phil Neville

Former England & Man Utd defender on BBC Radio 5 live

Good job we have goalline technology. Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar is gambling off his line, he has been like that all game and did everything right but has been caught out by Marcus Rashford's delivery.

He has been United's best player since the start of the second half. He's a sensational young player and he's getting better.

GOAL - Benfica 0-1 Manchester United

Marcus Rashford

He's had a shocker! Nightmare Champions League debut for Mile Svilar in the Benfica goal. Marcus Rashford curls in a free-kick from deep on the left, a cross, Svilar catches it but retreats over his own line. Clearly.

The most schoolboy of schoolboy errors.

WHAT A GOAL! A SPECIAL ONE!

Wow. Pick that one out!

Think Robin van Persie. Federico Fazio is allowed time and space inside the centre circle and the former Tottenham man clips a lovely ball over the top. Edin Dzeko watches it, watches it, all the way, over his shoulder and then, left foot, volley, both feet off the ground!

Whack!
