1. A day after Lyon became only the second French team ever to win at Anfield, another team from Ligue 1 got a huge Champions League win. Bordeaux got a 2-1 home win over Bayern Munich, and with the group stage half over they lead Group A by 2 points over Juventus, who they have already gotten a draw from on the road, and are 3 points clear of Bayern for advancement into the next round. Bordeaux got some help in this match though, as Bayern was playing with 10 men most of the game, and missed two PK's.
2. AC Milan has bumbled its way thru this season, currently in 8th place in Serie A and coming off a 1-0 loss to Swiss side FC Zurich in their last Champions League match. None of that mattered yesterday though as Milan went to the Bernabeu and stunned Real Madrid with a 3-2 win. Alexandre Pato had a pair of goals including the game winnner in the 88th minute. Milan moves into a first place tie in their group with Real, and both are 3 points clear of elimination with 3 matches to play.
3. After Liverpool barfed all over their shoes against a French Team on Tuesday, the Premier League needed someone to defend its honor. Thankfully they still have Manchester United and Chelsea in the tournament. Chelsea, who looks very much like the best team in the world right now, melted down Atletico Madrid 4-0, getting two goals from Saloman Kalou. Chelsea remains unbeaten, untied and unscored upon in Champions League play this year. Man U dominated action in Moscow against CSKA, and finally broke thru in the 86th minute with a goal from Antonio Valencia to get a 1-0 win and now have 9 out of 9 possible points in Champions League play.
