Zenit St Petersburg became the third team to reach the last 16 of the competition as the Russian champions maintained their 100 per cent record with a 2-0 win at Lyon, while
Barcelona edged closer towards qualification after strolling past BATE Borisov 3-0.

Bayern's unbeaten start to the season was ended by a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal a fortnight ago but Pep Guardiola's side exacted its revenge.

Robert Lewandowski headed Bayern into a 10th-minute lead as Arsenal's attempt to catch the Poland striker offside backfired. Thomas Mueller added a second just before the half hour as his shot deflected off Per Mertesacker and crept in at Petr Cech's near post.
     
A chastening evening for the Londoners was made all the more damaging as Olympiakos recovered from a goal down to beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-1, leaving Arsenal six points behind the Greeks, and Bayern, with two games to play.
    
Meanwhile, beleaguered Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho was a much-relieved man after Willian helped steer the Blues past their Ukrainian opponents. Chelsea took a first-half lead at Stamford Bridge when Willian's right-wing cross was headed into his own net by Aleksandar Dragovic, only for the Austrian to atone with a 78th-minute equalizer.
