Champions League Round-Up

Bayer Leverkusen 2 – 1 Real Sociedad: Bayer Leverkusen substitute Jens Hegeler curled home a brilliant injury-time free-kick to snatch an important home win for the Germans over Real Sociedad. Bayer skipper Simon Rolfes' gave the home side the lead scoring the games’ opener in first-half injury time. Carlos Vela then went on to win a penalty for the Spanish outfit, which he took and missed, but went on to poke in the rebound when keeper Bernd Leno saved but could not push the ball out of play. Hegeler’s 90th minute free-kick then grabbed all three points for the hosts.

Anderlecht 0 – 3 Olympiakos: Greek striker Kostas Mitroglou's scored a hat-trick as he lead Olympiacos to a 3-0 win in Belgium handing Anderlecht their second successive Champions League defeat. The hosts also missed the chance to equalise after Mitroglou had opened the scoring for the visitors when Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a penalty in the 25th minute. The Greek striker’s two second-half goals were enough to grab all three points for Olympiakos and move them to second in their group, leaving the Belgium side struggling without a point yet in the European competition.

Paris Saint-Germain 3 – 0 Benfica: Zlatan Ibrahimovic grabbed the headlines in Paris once more, this time for his brace against Portuguese outfit Benfica, and not for his comments about former manager Pep Guardiola. The controversial striker opened the scoring for PSG with only five minutes on the clock, before young defender Marquinhos' scored with a close-range strike in the 25th minute. Ibra then rounded of his brace, scoring once more in the 30th minute. The French side seemed to take their foot off the gas after taking the three goal lead in half an hour, but this was enough to take them to top of their group.

CSKA Moscow 3 – 2 Viktoria Plzen: CSKA Moscow got their first Group D victory as they came from behind to beat Viktoria Plzen at the Stadion Petrovskiy in St Petersburg. Frantisek Rajtoral scored first for the Czech’s in the fourth minute, before Zoran Tosic's deflected 19th-minute effort drew the host’s level. Japan international Keisuke Honda's classy finish then gave them the lead in the 29th minute. Radim Reznik was unfortunate to concede an own goal with just over 10 minutes remaining, but Marek Bakos’ goal came too late for the visitors in the 90th minute.
