KICK OFF! Wolfsburg restart the contest.

CHANCE! The ball breaks to Musa on the left edge of the area and he lashes a fizzing volley just wide of the near post.
KICK OFF! CSKA get us up and running.
The referee blows for full time as Cesar rolls the ball out to the Benfica defence. It's a fair result, though Astana will be disappointed the referee wasn't harsher on Benfica, with two potential sending offs ignored. Benfica haven't definitely qualified for the knockout rounds, but a point makes it far more certain.
Dedechko is on as Astana chase the game. Free kick on the right. Schetkin is booked for something off the ball.
Zhukov is on for Foxi.

Kabananga sends it wide to Tuwmasi on the right, but he drags his shot from the edge of the box wide of goal.
Eric runs out to claim another through ball. Benfica are growing into the game. At the other end Kethevoama shoots low into the ground, and Cesar saves easily.

The second half gets underway.
That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.

Benfica try to slice through the Astana defence but Eliseu is tackled on the left, and at the other end, there's trouble for Benfica. Astana break down the right, with a ball over the top for Tuwmasi. Lopez blocks him off, just as Cesar boots it away. Yellow for Lopez.

Jonas is the latest player to have a shot from distance for Benfica, and his effort is inches away from the top corner. Eric likely had it covered.
A cross from the right is flicked on by Jardel, but it's glanced wide of goal.
Twumasi is tackled on the right, Benfica hoof it long. Astana lose it in defence. Sanchez plays it right to Jimenez, but Astana intervene. Eric then leaps to his left to save a shot from distance by Pizza, a well-struck left foot volley.
GOAL! Astana 2-0 Benfica - Anicic scores - Another Astana free kick, this time on the left, swung in by Kethevoama, and Anicic glances it off the back of his head, beating Cesar.
Postnikov goes down clutching his head, with blood coming out of his head. Jimenez is booked for leading with an arm.
GOAL! FC Astana 1 - 0 Benfica. Twumasi scores - Astana attack down the left with Kabananga, who fires in an early cross to the back post, and Twumasi thunders in his header.
Another corner from the right, and it's weaky headed into the ground by Lopez and saved by Eric.

TEAMS: Benfica: Julio Cesar, Silvio, Lopez, Jardel, Eliseu, Samaris Sanchez, Pizzi, Guedes, Goncalves, Gimenez. Subs: Almeida, Cristante, Santos, Talisca, Carcela, Mitroglou. (Astana to follow).
More drama right at the end. The keeper takes a real knock. He's treated and seems okay. The referee sees that and opts to blow the whistle for FT.
Muller breaks and takes the ball around the keeper, but he's put under pressure by the covering defenders and can only strike the post from an angle with his shot.
GOAL! Chelsea rub salt in the home side's wounds as Zouma thunders a header into the net from a right-wing corner via the keeper's leg.
FULL-TIME! Arsenal secure a 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb - a win that keeps their hopes of progressing to the last 16 very much alive. A goal from Mezut Özil as well as a double from Alexis Sánchez secured the three points.
GOAL ROMA! And with the last kick of the game, Edin Djeko heads in a consolation. FULL TIME: Barcelona 6-1 Roma
CHANCE NEYMAR! Adriano plays him in but a fantastic cover tackle from Falque keeps it at 6. One added minute only.
SO CLOSE! Alexis finds Özil with a lobbed pass and the German international tries a spectacular header but the effort goes narrowly wide of the target. It was a brave effort, he could easily have collided with Eduardo who had made a genuine attempt to get the ball.
Kimmich tries to chip the keeper, but Roberto makes the save. That should have been five.
ZAGREB SUB! The highly-rated Coric replaces Machado - can the youngster make any sort of impact in the final minutes?
MISSED PENALTY! Ter Stegen guesses right to his left and saves Djeko’s penalty. One of those nights for Roma.
DOUBLE ARSENAL SUB! Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy replace Cazorla and Bellerin. Wenger is not willing to risk some of his star players for any longer.
CHANCE! Adriano teases in a dangerous ball and Messi should score but Szczesny makes himself big and makes an excellent save.
Well, there is another goal, but it's been disallowed. Soudani made his run just too soon and is caught offside - he finished confidently though it'll count for nothing.
GOAL! It's 3-0 and all over. Rahman curves a lovely cross into the box for Oscar who powers a header beyond the keeper.
PENALTY APPEAL! Sanchez is brought down by Eduardo when through on goal but the referee is having none of it and waves play on! The Chilean is furious - it looked like a foul on replay.
GOAL BARCA! Szczesny saves Neymar’s spot kick but Adriano is there to follow it up.
ZAGREB SUB! Angelo Henriquez replaces Antolic as the visitors go for broke!
GOAL! Willian steps up and curls a delicious 25-yard free kick into Rajkovic's right-hand corner. The keeper was no where near it.
Off goes the superb Costa, with Javi Martinez coming on.
CHELSEA SUB: The Blues are forced into a change. Terry, sitting on a stretcher, is taken off following an awkward fall. Zouma on.
POST! Cech is still awake - he makes a save to deny Zagreb from a deflected effort and Rog then strikes the post from the rebound. Arsenal's clean sheet is still in tact.
GOOOAAALLL!!! Coman wraps up the win as he nods a header through the keeper's arms. The Bayern man gets clattered for his trouble, but that was the goal that the hosts needed to remove any lingering concern that Olympiacos might launch a comeback. 4-0.
Neymar close! It’s almost a sixth as he ghosts into the box and curls his effort just wide of the post.
GOAL - Arsenal 3-0 Dinamo Zagreb! Alexis Sanchez scores his second of the evening - and his ninth of the season - as he times his run superbly to latch onto a through pass from Campbell and slides the ball into the net.
CHELSEA SUB: Pedro on, Hazard off. The Belgian gave the ball away and Jose turned in disgust and called for Pedro. Read into that what you will.
Olympiacos make a double change, with Fortounis and Hernani on and Kasami and Pardo off.
ARSENAL SUB! Aaron Ramsey makes his first appearance in six weeks as he replaces Giroud.
YELLOW CARD! Monreal receives the first booking of the evening as he makes a mis-timed and rather needless challenge.

JUST WIDE! Campbell goes close to getting his name on the score-sheet but sees his effort go narrowly wide from a tight angle.
Foul by Messi on the edge of the box gives away a free kick and he also goes into the book. Adriano on for Roberto.
SAVE! Hazard surges into the right side of the area but sees his low drive beaten away by Rajkovic.
Yellow card for Vainqueur for a poor challenge on Samper.
Ideye shoots over with the best chance of the game for the visitors. A comeback is highly unlikely, but it's impossible if Olympiacos miss chances like that.
GOAL BARCELONA! And it’s Messi’s second as he follows up his initial saved effort from Szczesny.
Costa bursts clean through and tries to chip the keeper, but Roberto stretches a long arm up to make the save and prevent the fourth Bayern goal.
Costa fizzes in a screamer of a free-kick that would have been one of the strikes of the season... had the ball not gone the wrong side of the post.
CHANCE! Zagreb gives us a timely reminder that this match is not over yet as Matel bursts his way into the home penalty area and fires a deflected shot at goal. The Arsenal defence was caught cold there.
Roma sub: Florenzi off to be replaced by Vainqueur.
Yellow card for Dani Alves, so he will be suspended for the final game against Leverkusen.
Off goes Lewandowski and on comes Benatia to add some defensive steel to the 10-man Bayern side.
And that’s Pique’s last involvement as he goes off to be replaced by Bartra.
ZAGREB SUB! Hilal Soudani comes on for Junior Fernandes.
GOAL BARCELONA! Another super team goal. Suarez to Messi and he squares the ball for Pique to tap home into an empty net. Sublime.
CHANCE ROMA! Good effort from Falque, forcing Ter Stegen into an excellent one-handed save. Should have scored, really.
That wasn't in the script! Badstuber takes down Brown Ideye as the last man and the referee awards a free-kick and pulls out his red card. That's a touch harsh perhaps.
FINE SAVE! Dasa races free into the right side of the Chelsea area and sizzles in a first-time shot from a narrow angle that Begovic is forced to block behind.
SAVE! An acrobatic palm clear from Szczesny as Neymar is given too much time and space to get the shot away.
Vidal's free-kick is pulled back for Kimmich to strike on the edge of the box, but the substitute's shot is blocked. It's more of the same in this second half by the looks of things.
SAVE! Giroud leaps highest to meet the corner delivery but Eduardo makes the stop, pawing the ball away from goal. The score remains 2-0.
SAVE! Cazorla goes close to grabbing a third for Arsenal as he fires a shot from the edge of the penalty area but Eduardo makes another save to deny him a first Champions League goal. Corner to follow...
The game is back underway at the Allianz Arena. It's 3-0 to Bayern and if they fancy it then there are more goals out there for the taking.
KICK OFF! Maccabi restart the match.
Back underway here in Barcelona and this could be a very long 45 minutes for Roma players and fans. Although I’m sure they appreciate the football! Busquets off for Samper for Barca, Iturbe on for Naingollan for Roma.
We're underway in the second-half - can Arsenal add to their lead or will Dinamo Zagreb make life difficult for them?
HT: Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-1 Chelsea. The Blues lead courtesy of Gary Cahill's poacher's finish. Former Blues defender, Tal Ben Haim was then given his marching orders for a wild kick on Costa to leave the hosts facing a tall order in the second period.
That's 5 goals in 5 matched for Suarez as the refereespares Roma by blowing up for half time.
GOAL BARCELONA! The purest of volleys from Suarez, a fantastic finish as the headed clearance came back to him.
Boateng gets a little over-confident and gives the ball away, before making a rash foul on the edge of the box. It's a booking - given, apparently, by the official behind the goal rather than the ref.
Keita caught late by Pique and that’s the first yellow. Pjanic plays it in and Keita’s volley is saved by Ter Stegen.
SAVE! Özil skips past a couple of challenges and fires a shot at goal from a tight angle but Eduardo saves with his feet to deny him a second goal of the evening. Corner coming up...
RED CARD: Tal Ben Haim has been given his marching orders against his old club. He has two wild kicks at Costa and looks aghast at what he has done.
GOAL - Arsenal 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb! Alexis doubles the Gunners' advantage! The visitors fail to clear their lines, Montreal wins the ball back for his side, bursts into the penalty area and squares it to his team mate who is left with time and space to tap the ball into the back of the net.
Alba caught just offside. That was mighty close and that high Roma line again almost caught out.
Robben has felt a slight twinge and there's no point risking injury at this stage. Off he goes, with Kimmich coming on.
GOAL - Arsenal 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb! The Gunners have the lead courtesy of a header from Ozil to finish a wonderful team move. Arsenal launched a counter attack of their own with Flamini finding Alexis in a wide position who played a delightful cross for the German international to head in from close range.
Lewandowski's shot takes a sliver of paint with it as it slides agonizingly wide after a wonderful pass into him from the impressive Costa. Bayern are creating chances at will and this could end up in double figures at this rate.
MISS! A dangerous cross is whipped from Monreal towards Giroud who tries an acrobatic volley but completely misses the ball. His team mate Campbell may have got in his way there.
GOOOAAALLL!!! Thomas Muller makes it 3-0 to Bayern. This is a rout! Lahm's dinked cross is headed back across by Lewandowski to Robben, who in turn opts against going for goal to put it on a plate for Muller. 3-0.
GOAL!!! Chelsea lead. Gary Cahill pounces to tap home the rebound after Rajkovic had pushed his initial header from the right-wing corner onto the post.
GOAL BARCELONA! They flood forward again and it’s an impudent chip from Lionel Messi on his return. Sublime.
GOOOAAALLL!!! Robert Lewandowski makes it 2-0 with an emphatic finish. Coman cuts inside and looks to shoot, but his effort strikes Lewandowski on the way through and breaks nicely for the striker to tee up an effort of his own. 2-0. Too easy.
GOAL BARCA! It’s been coming as Alves squares to Suarez and it’s the simplest of tap-ins. Great initial ball from Neymar.
CHANCE ROMA! Nainggolan picks out Dzeko who really should score but his header is over the bar.
CHANCE! Another huge hole through the middle as Busquets picks out Messi but the little Argentine hits his shot just wide. He scores those more often than not.
GOOOAAALLL!!! Douglas Costa opens the scoring for Bayern. The goalkeeper can only parry a Boateng drive from distance, and Costa tucks away the rebound in the far corner. 1-0.
Delightful back heel from Oscar finds the run of Azpilicueta who tries to curl it into the corner with his left foot, but he gets the execution all wrong and it flashes well wide of target.
CHANCE! Barca flood forward again, so lovely to watch already. Cracking effort from Messi on the edge of the box and a super one-handed save from Szczesny.
HUGE CHANCE! Dor Poretz heads over from less than six yards out with the goal gaping after Chelsea had been exposed down the right.

CHANCE: Zenit look like scoring whenever they surge forward now and Witsel jinks away from two Valencia defenders in the box before firing a tame shot left-footed straight at Domenech.

Subs: Blackman, Ivanovic, Zouma, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Remy.
Leverkusen sub: Yurchenko on for Mehmedi.
CHANCE: Evseev almost extends Zenit's lead with his first contribution, swivelling in the box and unleashing a curling shot that Domenech parries away.

Bate sub: Volodko off to be replaced by Nikolic.
Leverkusen sub: Brandt comes on for Hakan.
GOAL! Zenit St Petersburg 2-0 Valencia. Against the run of play Andre Villas-Boas' men make the game safe with a brilliant move. Danny initiates a slick one-two with Shatov before squaring the ball to Dzyuba, who taps his fifth Champions League goal of the season into an empty net. Quality goal.
Second change for Valencia as Danilo Barbosa replaces Enzo Perez in midfield.
Bate sub: Hleb goes off to be replaced by Karnitski.
Svein Oddvar Moen loses patience with Yusupov, who cynically brings down Gomes on the left flank and Valencia have a free-kick in a dangerous position...
CHANCE: Valencia have the ball in the net as substitute Mina latches onto a Gomes pass and slots the ball under Lodygin, only to have his elation crushed by the assistant referee's flag. Replays show he wasn't far off...
GOAL LEVERKUSEN! Another strange goal as the ball is lifted to Mehmedi, who tries to clip it to Bellarabi at the far post but his pass across goal slips into the corner. didn't look intentional.
First change for Zenit as Igor Smolnikov who, confusingly, takes his gloves off again, is replaced by Artur Yusupov.
Yellow card for Polyakov for a tug back on Hernandez.
CHANCE: Hulk's delivery is good and Garay meets it with a firm header that loops a yard or two wide of the near post. Domenech was rooted.
That's it for Valencia youngster Rafa Mir, replaced by Santi Mina.
CHANCE: Hulk tries audaciously to whip a corner directly into Domenech's net but the Valencia goalkeeper reacts well to punch away.
CHANCE! Bellarabi strems through the middle and his shot takes the slightest of deflections off Mladenovic and goes just wide of the goal.
CHANCE: A lovely flowing Zenit move culminates in Shatov pulling the ball back for Witsel, but Criscito is flagged offside as he attempts to flick the Belgian's scuffed shot beyond Domenech.

Back underway here in Belarus and Leverkusen have it all to do to prevent bate going second in the table. Volodko on for Rios for Bate.
Valencia weather one final spell of pressure after a purposeful Zenit counter and referee Svein Oddvar Moen blows for half-time. The home side deservedly lead but Nuno Espirito Santo's men have had enough dangerous moments to believe they are still in this match.
HALF TIME: Bate 1-0 Bayer Leverkusen
CHANCE! Mehmedi crosses into the path of Hernandez but his shot is well saved by Chernik. He would usually score that, though.
Mir marks his senior Valencia debut with a booking after nibbling at Shatov from behind.
CHANCE: Parejo controls a dropping ball in the Zenit box beautifully before playing in Alcacer, but the striker scuffs his shot horribly and Smolnikov manages to clear.
Hernandez goes down in the box and it looks like a penalty but nothing given. No yellow card for a dive so all a bit puzzling.
Now Kampl goes into the book for a foul. All unravelling a little for Leverkusen.
Leverkusen face Barcelona in their final game, so even more of an incentive to get a positive result. Ambitious shot from Tah as Hleb goes into the book for a mistimed tackle.
CHANCE: First spell of sustained Valencia pressure as a scuffed Gomes shot falls to teenage debutant Mir in the box, but Garay races across to block the youngster's shot.
Another look at Shatov's opening goal...
Criscito earns the game's first booking for cynically pulling back Cancelo.
GOAL! Zenit St Petersburg 1-0 Valencia. The visitors get themselves in a muddle on a broken play and Dzyuba manages to play in Shatov, who takes a touch before dinking the ball coolly over Domenech.
CHANCE: Hulk plays in a surging Criscito down the left and the Italian's cross is deflected and comes perilously close to looping in before being headed off the line.
Interesting to see how Bate approach things as goal scorer Gordeichuk is booked. looked an honest clash and a little harsh.
GOAL BATE! It’s an absolute howler from Leno, who lets Gordeichuk’s shot squirm beneath him. Shades of Massimo Taibi!
Referee Svein Oddvar Moen blows his whistle Zenit get us under way in St Petersburg.
