Champions League, league stage, day two

Good results for all three Spanish sides this week, although Barcelona only just saved the day with a last minute goal from Messi to draw 1-1 at Werder Bremen . Puyol had put through his own net earlier in the second half. Elsewhere Valencia beat Roma 2-1 to head up group D, David Villa getting the winner before the break after a Totti penalty had cancelled out Angulo's early strike. Real Madrid got their Champions League campaign back on track the day before with a 5-1 win over Dynamo Kiev. Van Nistelrooy and Raúl scored twice and Reyes was also on target to take Fabio Capello's side up to second in their group. (27.09.06)

Werder Bremen 1 - Barcelona 1

A last minute goal from substitute Leo Messi saved an important point for Barcelona at Werder Bremen. Frank Rijkaard's side had been surprised by the Bundesliga team right from the kick off, and they were lucky not to be well behind by half time. And ten minutes in to the second half Werder took the lead when Puyol turned Hunt's cross in to his own net. The Spaniards suffered another blow when Eto'o being stretchered off with a serious knee injury, but with the game seemingly lost, Messi picked up a return pass from Deco and slotted the ball wide of the keeper for the equaliser.

Valencia 2 - Roma 1

Valencia top group D with maximum points after beating their closest rivals Roma 2-1. Both sides came in to the game having won their first match, but with twelve minutes gone the Chés went ahead, Villa only half-hitting Vicente's long pass but the ball falling kindly for Angulo to thump a shot into the far corner of the net. A few minutes later the Italians equalised with a Totti penalty after Moretti dragged down Cassetti in the area, but soon afterwards the hosts restored the lead when Villa picked up a short pass from Moretti to shoot low inside Doni's near post.

Real Madrid 5 - Dynamo Kiev 1

Real Madrid got their Champions League campaign back on track with a 5-1 win over Dynamo Kiev. Van Nistelrooy got the opening goal after keeper Shovkovski could only push out Roberto Carlos's shot midway through the first half, and Raúl got behind the defence to head a Reyes cross wide of the keeper a few minutes later. Reyes made it three on the stroke of half time with a shot from the edge of the area, and although Milevskiy pulled one back for the visitors two minutes after the restart, Raúl took advantage of a poor back pass to score his second of the night soon afterwards, and Van Nistelrooy wrapped things up with number five from the penalty spot.
