HT APOEL 0-2 Barcelona
HT APOEL 0-2 Barcelona
The referee takes pity on Schalke, choosing not to play any additional minutes. The discontent in the ground is clear. That is one of the most one-sided halves you're likely to see in the Champions League.
The half-time whistle blows in Paris. Cavani's tap-in separates the two sides, but PSG have not had it all their own way. Ajax have had plenty of possession but have been unable to break down a resolute home defence. Join me in 15 minutes to see if they can get a goal.
HT: Man City 1-2 Bayern. Aguero gave City the lead from the spot after Benatia was sent off for hauling him down. But the 10-man Germans hit back through Xabi Alonso and Robert Lewandowski to lead at the break.
GOAL! Barcelona are 2-0 up and Messi has his 72nd goal in the Champions League! Rafinha strikes and Messi rediverts it towards goal and that's a another record-breaking strike for the Argentine!
GOAL! Lewandowski leaps brilliantly to loop a header via his own shoulder into the top corner from a right-wing cross. 10-man Bayern have turned it around!
Three yellow cards in quick succession as Rafinha also gets booked, for a foul.
There will be two minutes added on at the end of the first half.
GOAL! Chelsea have a third and it's an own goal from Kirchhoff, who heads into his own net from a corner. What was he thinking?!
Dani Alves goes into the book for handball, and that rules him out of Barca's next Champions League game.
And again Chelsea almost have the ball in the net! Hoger plays a dreadful backpass and Costa is onto it. He slips, though, and allows Santana to get back and deny him.
GOAL! Alonso levels it up with a low free kick into the corner of the net. Dante moved off the wall and Xabi placed it right where he had been standing. A nice way to celebrate his birthday!
Another good break from PSG ends in a booking for their skipper. Ibrahimovic dives in on Thulani Serero as the midfielder looks to clear.
Carlao launches himself into an aerial challenge with Messi and ends up kicking the Barca captain in the back of the head. That's an easy yellow for the ref.
GOAL!! CAVANI OPENS THE SCORING!! At the other end of the pitch Ibrahimovic plays in Lavcezzi, who unselfishly squares to Cavani to tap home.
GOAL! Barcelona lead and it's a first Barca goal for Luis Suarez! The striker turns brilliantly to los his marker and then guides a lovely shot into the bottom corner. Classic Suarez.
GOAL! Chelsea double their lead! Fabregas, Willian and Hazard link up beautifully, before Willian blasts a low shot into the net.
Chance for Barca! Rakitic should score as Alba picks him out from the left, but the Croatian sends a tame header straight at Pardo.
PSG break, Ibrahimovic finds Lavezzi but Cillessen comes out well to block the Argentine's shot. Lavezzi should have done better, but a good save.
GOAL! Aguero fires the penalty beyond the outstretched arm of Neuer to put City ahead! A great spot kick.
Benatia sent off for bringing down Aguero after the forward had raced clear on the counter attack. Bayern down to 10 men. Aguero to take to the penalty.
RED CARD to Bayern and a penalty to City!!!
Marco Hoger is the first name into the book for a clumsy one on Eden Hazard, who's far to skillful for most people.
Davy Klaassen has taken the Ajax captain's armband and now he has a booking for a lunge on Maxwell.
Edinson Cavani with a bit of magic but no one reads his brilliant back flick in the area. If Matuidi had then he would have had a tap in.
Schalke hit the bar! Thibaut Courtois breathes a sigh of relief as a shot from Choupo-Moting deflects off Cahill, looping up and onto the bar.
That's the end of Ajax captain Boilesen's night. Nick Viergever is on in his place.
GREAT SAVE! Hart does well to block Rode's first-time shot on the run after Robben's dinked ball into the area had fallen kindly for the midfielder.
Chelsea go close again! Another corner and Gary Cahill nods it down for Branislav Ivanovic, who has to hit the target put instead blasts over the bar.
As you may expect, Barcelona have started on the front foot and Messi has already seen a shot saved by Pardo from point-blank range.
GOAL! Chelsea take the lead! It's John Terry who outjumps Howedes and heads home from a corner. What a start!

Remarkable stuff in Moscow as Berezutski's late intervention hands City a CL lifeline. On the balance of play the hosts were certainly worth a point, but Roma will kick themselves they had chances to put that game to bed.
GOAL!! BEREZUTSKI FINDS AN UNLIKELY LEVELLER!! Fernandes gets forward on the right but Dzagoev's volley from his cross is blocked. CSKA come forward again and Eremenko finds Berezutski on the left whose cross finds a way into the far corner.
FT BATE 0-3 Porto
There will be three minutes of added time. Can CSKA find an equaliser?
GOAL! Tello makes it 3-0! A good run and neat finish by Tello, but this goal is all about Herrera again, who spots the run and delivers and inch-perfect through ball.
Chance for Porto! Herrera almost gets his second goal of the night but can't quite connect with the cross, which was whipped in brilliantly from the right wing.
Strootman is back. The midfielder replaces Nainggolan to make his Champions League debut.
Roma are finishing strongly, and Florenzi volleys Totti's free kick across goal and just out of the reach of Saydou Keita.
Porto sub: Adrian on, Brahimi off.

BATE's Yablonskiy picks up a yellow card for unsporting behaviour.
GOAL! Martinez makes it 2-0 to Porto! Brahimi's low cross from the left finds Herrera, who tees up Martinez, who finishes first-time into the bottom corner.
CSKA make their first change as Georgi Milanov comes on for Aleksandrs Cauna.
Roma are just starting to impose themselves again, and Nainggolan tricks his way into the box but with only Akinfeev to beat he drags his shot wide.
GOAL! Porto score and what a goal this is by Herrera! Karnitskiy is caught in possession on the edge of the BATE box and Herrera unleashes a thunderous dipping shot from the corner of the penalty area that takes BATE keeper Chernik completely by surprise.
We're back under way in Moscow. Can CSKA get their campaign back on track?
Worth mentioning that BATE's Olekhnovich picked up a yellow card right at the end of the first half.
SECOND HALF. We're back underway.
Akinfeev at full stretch to deny Roma a second as Florenzi fizzes a volley at goal from 18 yards. CSKA manage to clear the resulting corner and that is that for the half. So far so good for the visitors, but their hosts need at least another goal if they are to keep their qualification hopes alive. See you in 15 minutes for an intriguing second half.
HT BATE 0-0 Porto
GOAL!! TOTTI SMASHES ROMA INTO THE LEAD!! It may well have been a penalty after all, as Totti steps up from 20 yards and fires into the top left corner.
Florenzi bursts forward from right back again, and is brought to ground by Berezutski who picks up a yellow card. Contact was just outside the box.
Musa finds Doumbia in the area but De Sanctis comes out to block his shot. He should have scored.
Dzagoev picks up a booking for a rather robust challenge on Totti.
In fact, Marcano picks up a yellow card for that challenge.
Referee Felix Brych blows his whistle and we are under way in freezing Moscow.
