Pogba spots an opening as he comes into the centre, just outside the box, and he curls a shot wide.

Ocampos drills a volley at the Zenit goal, but straight down the throat of the goalkeeper Lodygin, who takes no chances as he palms over the bar.
Danny sent spinning to the ground by Toulalan, who is booked for his troubles. I think that is what you call taking one for the team.
Moutinho throws in a free-kick at some pace, but Berbatov nods over the bar from 10 yards. Was a free header. Should have perhaps have done better with that.
Dirar gets away a solid strike at goal, but just too high. Monaco certainly starting this match in an attacking mood.

Verratti, after his first goal for PSG, then gets a yellow card for a wild challenge on Iniesta.
GOAL: Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 Barcelona. Verratti heads home the corner at the far post after a mistake by ter Stegen and some pretty hopeless marking by Rakitic.
GOAL! Totti lifts the ball over Hart as Roma draw level at 1-1. Brilliant goal from Totti, and the Italian side are deservedly level.
WHAT A MISS! Hazard is given the freedom of the right flank and races into the area before cutting it back for Schurrle who somehow puts it wide from eight yards out.

CHANCE – Porto: Danilo plays a one-two from just inside the Shaktar half, wins a 50-50 challenge, and fires a rasping shot past Pyatov’s right-hand upright. Great attacking play from the defender!

CHANCE – Shaktar: Taison receives the ball wide on the Shaktar left, he cuts inside an a curling strike has Fabiano scrambling to palm away. The corner comes to nothing.

GOAL! Aguero slots the ball into his right as the goalkeeper Skorupski headed to his right. Goodness knows what Maicon was doing there.
PENALTY TO CITY! Maicon clearly pulled back Aguero on the move. Obvious penalty. Maicon should have been sent off. Only a yellow.
SAVE! Costa is sent rampaging clear on goal but sees his side-foot attempt brilliantly deflected over the crossbar by goalkeeper, Rui Patricio. Almost a stunning start for the visitors.
