Bordeaux, Chelsea win groups
In the Champions League match day 2, Bordeaux and Chelsea won their groups after wins over Juventus and Porto respectively.
In Chelsea's group D, Porto and Chelsea were already guaranteed of reaching the next stage before the match and so it was a matter of fighting to top the group and be seeded for the knockout phase.
Juventus will play Bayern in their last match needing to avoid defeat to proceed to the next stage. Bayern are currently third whilst Maccabi Haifa with no win yet are last.
In Group C three teams Real Madrid, AC Milan and Marseille can all reach the next round after Real won but the other two drew their match. Marseille hosts eal Real the last match whilst Milan will be away to Zurich.
No groups winners yet in Group B after Besiktas win over Manchester United. That was Besiktas first win of the competition this season.
The team to join Man United in the knockout will be decided in the last match after CSKA Moscow beat Wolfsburg at home 2-1.
