Champions League: Brits' success, Inter win

Wins for Manchester United, Rangers, Arsenal, Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon, Inter Milan and Sevilla

Lyon 0 -3 Rangers:
Goals from Lee McCulloch, Daniel Cousin and DaMarcus Beasley clinched a win which was as remarkable as it was unexpected. Lyon have beaten Real Madrid 2-0 and 3-0 here in the past two seasons - and top the French league - but Alain Perrin's side will now struggle to get out of the group.

Manchester United 1 - 0 Roma:
Manchester United opened up an emphatic lead in Group F thanks to a tentative superiority. This victory over Roma was in keeping with muted yet generally effective showings in the Premier League. At least United will not be damned as tiresome drudges so long as they can decide a match as they did this one.

Steaua Bucharest 0 - 1 Arsenal:
Arsène Wenger's dynamic young Arsenal team have not been held up by much this season during their imperious march to the Premier League summit and their sweep into the Champions League. Last night was no different.

Stuttgart 0 - 2 Barcelona:
In a scintillating encounter in the Daimler-Gottlieb stadium, the Blaugrana were at their attacking best and two second half goals were enough to maintain their 100 per cent start to this season's Champions League campaign.

Inter Milan 2 - 0 PSV Eindhoven:
A solid display by Inter allowed the Nerazzurri to win three precious points for the qualification to the second round of the Champions League as Ibrahimovic scored a brace for the Italian champions.
