Champions League second league phase day 6

Anderlecht 2 - Real Madrid 0
Two late goals by Dindane and Goor for Anderlecht gave a depleted Real Madrid their first defeat in the second phase of the Champions league. With Madrid already proclaimed group champions, Del Bosque made five changes from his usual line-up. (14.03.01)

Milan 1 - Deportivo 1
Deportivo got the point they needed to qualify for the quarter finals in a physical game against AC Milan. Both goals came from penalties, with referee Hugh Dallas awarding one to Depor fifteen minutes from time which Djalminha converted, and then inventing another four minutes from the end for Shevchenko to score. Galatasaray's defeat means Depor end the second phase as champions of their group.

Valencia 2 - Panathinaikos 1
Valencia made it three out of three for Spanish teams, joining Real Madrid and Deportivo as winners of their group after beating Panathinaikos. That means that the three avoid each other at the quarter final stage, and sets up a possible repeat of last season's feat of getting three clubs into the last four. They did make it hard on themselves though, falling behind to a Basinas penalty before Juan Sánchez and Angloma gave them the victory. (13.03.01)
