Uh-oh, Manchester City...
14.6% - Just 32 of the 232 teams to have earned 1 point or fewer from their opening 2 CL group games have advanced out of the group. Task.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 30, 2014
Paris Saint-Germain versus Barcelona = all-time classic. It really was. Barca hadn't conceded a goal all season but were undone three times by an impressive PSG side. As for the group's other game, Ajax could only draw at APOEL and are still without a win after two games.
APOEL 1-1 Ajax | Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 Barcelona
Roma coach Rudi Garcia to Sky Italy: "I'm proud of my team, we have shown we can stay in this group. We suffered in the last few minutes but we had the best chances to score. I'm very satisfied to have seen a Roma with huge personality. Ashley [Cole] was tremendous tonight, the English air had good effect on him, he proved he's a great champion."
Big pressure on Manuel Pellegrini and Manchester City now. On the balance of play, they may well be happy with a draw, but one point from two matches will see them in desperate need of at least four, probably six, points from the two upcoming matches against CSKA Moscow.

Tom Webber reports: “That is a real statement of intent from PSG. Could this be the year that they make a real go of getting all the way to the final? Barca will be disappointed with the defeat, their first of the season, and will need to bounce back against Ajax on the next matchday.”
Keeghann Sinanan reports: "Jose Mourinho will no doubt want his team to be more clinical in future, as they nearly repeated the mistakes of their game against Schalke. Sporting will be disappointed that they could not turn their second-half revival into a point. A hard earned but deserved three points for Chelsea.”
Chris Baker reports: “Manuel Pellegrini will have been looking for at least two wins from his three Champions League home games but he should be satisfied with a point after a largely uninspiring display. On reflection a draw isn't a bad result against a very impressive Roma side. City may need to rethink their tactics and team selection for future European games.”
Incredible drama in Group H! Shakhtar Donetsk looked to have all three points wrapped up with that second goal but Porto scored twice in the closing stages to steal a draw. Reports, ratings and reaction from all around Europe to come.

Question: Can Diego Costa play two games in three days? Answer: YES. Yes he can. And he nearly gets a goal but, one-on-one with the goalkeeper, can only force a fine save out of Rui Patricio.
We’ll have an extra five minutes at the Etihad Stadium, where David Silva clips an inviting pass over the Roma defence towards Stevan Jovetic. The striker can’t quite make contact, though, and the ball rolls through to the goalkeeper.
Chelsea should wrap it up here. Filipe Luis passes the ball across the face of goal after neat build-up play by the visitors. Two players including Mohamed Salah, just on for Eden Hazard, await at the far post but nobody can turn it in.
Final change of the game now for Manchester City as Stevan Jovetic replaces Sergio Aguero for the final five minutes. This, remarkably, is his Champions League debut for the club. Chance to be a hero...
Tom Webber reports: “PSG are looking to try and assert themselves on the ball once more. However, they are giving away a few too many cheap free kicks which is inviting Barca to get men forward. Warning: The last time the Catalans were victorious on French soil was at Lyon in the 2001-02 Champions League group stage.”
