The Round of 32 of the UEFA Europa League unfolded on Friday with the first leg matches. Watch the highlights from the games that involved the big teams:

1) BATE 1-0 Arsenal: Arsenal have work to do if they are to reach the last 16 of the Europa League after slipping to a surprise 1-0 first-leg defeat to BATE in Belarus.

Unai Emery's side were caught cold in sub-zero temperatures on the stroke of half-time, Stanislav Dragun's header ending their run of five successive clean sheets in the competition.

2) Malmo 1-2 Chelsea: Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud scored as Chelsea earned a 2-1 win away to Malmo in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 meeting.

3) Celtic 0-2 Valencia: Valencia took a huge step towards the last 16 of the Europa League with a 2-0 first-leg win at Celtic on Thursday.

4) Rapid Vienna 0-1 Inter Milan: Inter are in control of their Europa League last-32 tie with Rapid Vienna thanks to Thursday's 1-0 victory in Austria.

A penalty from Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez six minutes before half-time was enough to give Luciano Spalletti's side the win, their second in a row in all competitions.
