Champions League - first phase

The matches postponed from day 1 of the league stage were played today, with good results for the two Spanish sides. Barcelona defeated Olympique Lyon 2-0 with two late goals, a header from Kluivert and a Rivaldo penalty after Edmilson brought down Kluivert. Barça go second in their group behind Bayer Leverkusen with six points from three games.

Deportivo were unlucky not to take the three points at Lille after drawing 1-1. Valerón gave the Gallicians the lead in the second half, but substitute Olufadé salvaged a point for the French side with a goal four minutes from time. Depor are second behind Manchester United with five points. (10.10.01)
