UEFA Champions League: Wednesday's Action

Borussia Dortmund supporters make their way to the Etihad Stadium
Manchester City salvaged a draw at home to Borussia Dortmund while Cristiano Ronaldo put Anderlecht to the sword and Arsenal won on Wednesday night in the Champions League. Milan saw Zenit recover from two goals down before completing a 3-2 away win over the Russian champions in their Group C match. James Rodriguez scored a sumptuous 83rd-minute winner as Porto moved to the top of Group A with a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain. Souleymane Camara grabbed a late equaliser as 10-man Montpellier salvaged a point in their 2-2 draw with Schalke.

Manchester City 1 - 1 Borussia Dortmund
Henry Winter at the Etihad Stadium: The scoreline is an impostor, a mask of many Manchester City blemishes on Wednesday night. Mario Balotelli, a model of composure with a late penalty, rescued a point for the champions of England but it was a miracle that they were still in contention then anyway. Only a series of saves from the brilliant Joe Hart had prevented the champions of Germany from disappearing over the horizon.
