UEFA Champions League Playoffs: Tuesday's Review, Reports & Analyses

Arsenal secured a narrow 1-0 advantage against Udinese in Tuesday night's Champions League play-off first leg at the Emirates Stadium. Lyon boast a healthier advantage after downing Rubin Kazan 3-1 in their tie, although the French side needed to fight back from an early deficit. Czech champions Viktoria Plzen are in an even better position after recording a 3-1 away win over a FC Copenhagen side who last term became the first Danish side to reach the knockout stage of the Champions League before losing to Chelsea in the last 16. FC Twente and Benfica shared a 2-2 draw in their first-leg tie.
