Champions league

Sturm Graz 0 - Valencia 5
Valencia cruised through to the next round with a five goal victory against Sturm Graz. Ayala headed the first goal early on, and four more came in the second half from Carew, Kily González, and two in the last three minutes from substitute Diego Alonso. A victory next week against Panathinaikos would give them the leadership of the group.

Deportivo 4 - PSG 3
The comeback of the year from Deportivo, who beat Paris Saint Germain 4-3 after falling three goals behind early in the second half. Okocha and Leroy (2) had given the French the lead, but a hat-trick from Pandiani and another goal from Diego Tristán, all from headers, turned the result around in spectacular fashion. Deportivo are now second, but still need to draw at least against Milan next Tuesday to reach the quarter finals. (07.03.01)

Real Madrid 3 - Leeds United 2
Real Madrid made sure of first place in their group with a victory over Leeds United. Smith scored early on but Raúl equalised a minute later, the referee failing to spot that he had knocked the ball in with his hand. Figo gave Madrid the lead before half time, and although Viduka levelled the scores in the second half, Raúl struck again to give his side the victory. (06.03.01)
