Defending champions Atlético Madrid need a near miracle to continue in the competition after a surprise 2-3 defeat against Aris Salonica. Two goals in a four minute period early in the first half by Forlán and Agüero cancelled out a first minute strike by Koke, but after the break a Koke penalty and scrambled goal by Lazaridis gave the Greek side a second win against Quique's team. Atlético now have to beat Bayer Leverkusen in Germany and hope that Rosenborg get something at Aris if they are to reach the knockout stage.
