Real & Bayern Munich seal late Champions League wins

Angel Di Maria celebrates his goal
Real Madrid had 19 shots but only scored once in France

European giants Real Madrid and Bayern Munich left it late to secure vital victories in the Champions League, while AC Milan and Ajax drew 1-1 in Amsterdam.

BBC Sport rounds up the action on the first night of the second round of group games in Europe's premier club competition.


Bastian Schweinsteiger was the hero as Bayern Munich came from behind to beat Basel 2-1. The Swiss champions had taken an early lead through striker Alexander Frei but Schweinsteiger equalised from the penalty spot after a heavy challenge on Thomas Mueller.

With just one minute remaining, Schweinsteiger got on the end of a Holger Badstuber free-kick to tap home the winner.

Philippe Mexes and Marco Borriello scored within two minutes of each other in the second half of Roma's 2-1 victory over Cluj.

The Romanians, who defeated the Italian's two years ago in the Stadio Olimpico, pulled a goal back through Ionut Rada in the 78th minute.


Brazilian striker Ferreira Ari scored twice as Spartak Moscow beat Slovakian side Zilina 3-0 to make it two wins from two.

Ari's goals maintained Spartak's 100% record in Group F

Ari put the Russian side ahead with a looping header from a corner and grabbed his second just after the hour mark with a crisp finish from Dmitri Kombarov's low cross.

And the comprehensive victory was rounded off a minute from time when Ibson superbly converted a cross from fellow substitute Cristian Maidana.

Chelsea are top of the group on goal difference after John Terry and Nicolas Anelka scored in their 2-0 victory over Marseille.


Real Madrid have taken control of Group G after Angel Di Maria's late goal secured a 1-0 victory over Auxerre.

The Spanish side dominated the game but looked destined for a frustrating night, when the Argentine took advantage of some static defending to lash home Alvaro's cross from the right in the 81st minute.

Meanwhile, Ajax and AC Milan drew 1-1 in a battle between two clubs with 11 European Cup wins between them.

The Dutch side took the lead through Mounir El Hamdaoui, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired an equaliser against his old team before half-time.


Shakhtar Donetsk are keeping pace with Arsenal after an impressive 3-0 triumph over Braga in Portugal.

Luiz Adriano scored twice and Douglas Costa added a late penalty for the Ukrainian champions.

Braga have now conceded nine goals without reply in their first appearance in the Champions League.

In the other Group H match, Arsenal defeated Partizan Belgrade 3-1 in a game in which both sides missed penalties.
