Nothing much was cooking at the Parc des Princes until Angel Di Maria put the hosts ahead in the 40th minute.

Bayern Munich 2-1 PSV Eindhoven

Both Thomas Muller and red-hot Joshua Kimmich have scored for Carlo Ancelotti’s men, while Luciano Narsingh narrowed the gap before halftime.

All it takes is one mistake for Lionel Messi to make you pay. Manchester City picked up the pieces after the early concession, but have yet to beat Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Arsenal 2-0 Ludogorets Razgrad

Theo Walcott‘s red-hot form continues, as he made it 2-0 before halftime, but how about the opener?

Alexis Sanchez = unfair.

Ex-Barca defender Adriano has scored to put the visitors on top, but Belgian attacker Dries Mertens has leveled things at San Paolo before Vincent Aboubakar pushed Beskitas back in front.

FC Rostov 0-0 Atletico Madrid

Seventy-percent possession and a heavy advantage in shots for the visitors.

Celtic 0-0 Borussia Monchengladbach

More possession for the hosts, but more shots for the Bundesliga guests.
