Real Madrid held up
Real Madrid celebrate Steve McManaman's goal
Real have drawn their last two European games

Group C

AEK Athens scored twice in the final 16 minutes to clinch a 2-2 draw against a sloppy Real Madrid at The Bernabeu on Tuesday.

Steve McManaman had struck with two well taken goals in the first half.

Costas Katsouranis reduced the arrears with a header from a corner on 74 minutes.

And substitute Walter Centeno pounced four minutes from time to earn the Greeks a point, converting smartly after good work by Ilija Ivic.

In Group C's other game AS Roma and Belgium champions Genk shared a dour 0-0 draw in Rome's Olympic Stadium.

Real remain top of Group C with eight points from four games, AS Roma have five, followed by AEK with four and Genk with two.

Group A

The 1997 European Cup winners Borussia Dortmund were held to a 1-1 draw by PSV Eindhoven.

The draw leaves the German club on seven points, two behind leaders Arsenal, though Eindhoven have almost no hope of making the second stage.

Czech striker Jan Koller opened the scoring for the German champions with a header from a Tomas Rosicky free-kick on 10 minutes.

But striker Arnold Bruggink put the visitors level with a superb volley from the edge of the box two minutes into the second half.

In the group's other game Arsenal slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to French side Auxerre.

Group B

Valencia's hopes of booking their place in the last 16 of the Champions League second stage were frustrated as Basle scored a last minute equaliser to grab a 2-2 draw.

In the confusion following Roberto Ayala's 88th minute dismissal, Ivan Ergic scored his second of the game to keep the Swiss champions' European hopes very much alive.

Ergic had put the Swiss champions ahead after 32 minutes, but Valencia levelled four minutes later when Ruben Baraja fired in a long-range shot.

Curro Torres put the Spanish champions ahead on 72 minutes.

Valencia remain top of the group on 10 points while Basle have five, two behind second-placed Liverpool, who earlier had beaten Spartak Moscow 3-1 in Russia.

Michael Owen scored his second hat-trick of the season after Aleksandr Danishevski had given Spartak the lead.

Group D
Sonny Anderson scored twice as Olympique Lyon kept their second phase hopes alive with a 3-3 draw at home against Inter Milan.

The French champions top their group with seven points from four games, and victory next week over Ajax would see them through to the second stage.

Inter Milan are second in the table with five points, the same number as Ajax, while Rosenborg Trondheim have three.

Lyon opened the scoring after 21 minutes when Anderson beat Francesco Toldo from close range, before Inter levelled when Brazilian defender Claudio Cacapa diverted Javier Zanetti's shot into his own goal.

Just before the break, Carriere scored Lyon's second after latching on to a Juninho Pernamburcano pass.

In the second half Lyon goalkeeper Gregory Coupet parried a Christian Vieri shot only for Hernan Crespo to push the ball into the net in the 56th minute.

Ten minutes later, the Argentine forward gave Inter a 3-2 lead with a header, but Anderson levelled.

Rosenborg salvaged a 1-1 draw at Ajax when midfielder Dagfinn Enerly slotted home a penalty in the 85th minute.

The penalty was awarded after Jelle van Damme handled the ball on the goalline to stop a Frode Johnsen shot and was sent off.

Ajax had taken the lead after 41 minutes when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from close range.
