Champions' League, day 2
Barcelona 3 - Shakhtar Donetsk 0
A second victory for Barcelona took them joint top of their group together with AC Milan. Their opponents Shakhtar Donetsk put up a good fight, but a Deco strike and a Ronaldinho penalty took the wind out of their sails, and Eto'o finished things off in the last minute.
Werder Bremen 2 - Valencia 1
The controversial sending off of Marchena early in the second half was the key to Valencia losing their Champions' League game to Werder Bremen. Vicente had given the Spanish side the lead in the second minute, but Werder scored twice after Valencia were reduced to ten men to turn the result around. (29.09.04)
Real Madrid 4 - Roma 2
Real Madrid's Raúl led from the front as the "Galacticos" fought back from two goals down to beat Roma in their second group match. The team captain scored two himself and won a penalty for Figo to get another in between, and Roberto Carlos wrapped things up with a late strike.
Monaco 2 - Deportivo 0
Another disappointment for Deportivo, who were beaten once again by their bogey team Monaco. Ex Barcelona striker Saviola got one of the goals, leaving the Galicians bottom of their group with only one point. (28.09.04)
