UEFA Champions League: Tuesday's Review & Reports

Chelsea and Arsenal both had to settle for a point on Matchday Four, meaning they still have work to do to reach the knockout stage of this season's UEFA Champions League. Chelsea are only three points clear of third-placed Valencia with two games to go after the Spaniards saw off Bayer Leverkusen 3-1. Borussia Dortmund picked up their first victory in Group F as they saw off notoriously poor travellers Olympiakos 1-0 to clamber above the Greek outfit into third place. Barcelona find themselves in the enviable position of being able to take their foot off the gas with two games to spare after they saw off Viktoria Plzen 4-0 to book their place in the knockout stage. AC Milan have joined Group H rivals Barca in the next stage despite being surprisingly held in Belarus by BATE Borisov. This season's surprise package Apoel edged a step closer to the knockout stages with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Porto. Zenit St Petersburg are favourites to join Apoel in extending their continental adventure following a narrow win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
