Black day for the Italians

Juventus: Just one of four Italian sides kicked out
Celta Vigo 4-0 Juventus
Celta Vigo win 4-1 on aggregate.

Juventus were dumped out of the Uefa Cup by Celta Vigo after having two players sent off in the first half.

Uefa Cup draw
Arsenal v Werder Bremen
Celta Vigo v Lens
Leeds v Slavia Prague
Mallorca v Galatasaray

1st leg 16 March
2nd leg 23 March
The Italian side had both Antonio Conte and Paolo Montero dimissed after losing their first-leg 1-0 advantage just 60 seconds into the match to a Claude Makelele goal.

Alessandro Birindelli thoughtfully made it two after 33 minutes with a ludicrous own goal.

A goalkeeping error handed the by-now rampant Spanish side their third, allowing Benny McCarthy to roll the ball into the net.

McCarthy struck again 20 minutes from time to finish a miserable night for the Italians.

Werder Bremen 3-1 Parma
Werder Bremen win 3-2 on aggregate.

Werder Bremen also overcame a 1-0 deficit from the first leg to slam three goals past Parma.

Marco Bode celebrates Bremen's second
Christophe Dabrowski gave the Germans the lead in the 30th minute, only for Mario Stanic to equalise for the Italian side two minutes later.

Marco Bode put the hosts ahead again just before the interval, then Fabio Cannavaro landed an own goal in the second half to seal the match.

Werder Bremen earlier overcame a three-goal deficit to knock out Lyon of France.

Galatasaray 0-0 Borussia Dortmund
Galatasaray win 2-0 on aggregate.

A goalless draw was all it took for Galatasaray to defeat former European champions Borussia Dortmund in Turkey.

Dortmund: Frustrated in Turkey
It was a crashingly disappointing end for Dortmund, who started their European campaign in the Champions League.

Bernd Krauss' Germans knew they had to take the game to the Turkish side after conceding two home goals.

But Galatasaray never looked like cracking as the match dissolved into an edgy stalemate.

Lens 4-2 Atletico Madrid
Racing Lens win 6-4 on aggregate.

Striker Pascal Nouma netted twice as Lens ran riot in the home leg of their tie against Atletico Madrid.

Lens demolished Madrid
Fellow striker Lamine Sakho made it three with a brilliant solo effort, before Philippe Brunel put the tie beyond doubt with a fourth.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink saved some face for Madrid with a goal that rocketed through the French defensive wall and nearly burst the net.

Kiko Narvaez scored the other Atletico goal, but was later sent off.

Monaco 1-0 Mallorca
Real Mallorca win 4-2 on aggregate.

Real Mallorca's first leg buffer was enough to see them through, despite losing to 10-man Monaco.

Italian striker Marco Simone scored the only goal with a strike just after the half-hour.

Monaco midfielder Marcelo Gallardo was sent off for diving, but the rest of the side adapted and the Spaniards could not force an equaliser.

It was only the second European loss for Mallorca, who lost for the first time in the 1999 European Cup Winners' Cup.
