Champions League results

It was a great day for British clubs on match day 4. There were wins for Celtic, Chelsea and Manchester United the most historic being Celtic's win. The Bhoys beat Spanish giants Barcelona 2-1 at Celtic Park. Victor Wanyama opened the scoring after 21 minutes and 18 year old Tony Watt doubled after 82 minutes. But there was still time for Lionel Messi to add a consolation at the end. I think that Tito Vilanova totally destroyed Barcelona's natural style which resulted in them losing. They looked sloppy and didn't finish very well as they hit the post a number of times.

Chelsea narrowly beat Shaktar Donetsk 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. Fernando Torres scored first on 6 minutes by a 'flukey' goal, Willian equalised just 3 minutes later Oscar then scored a brilliant 35 yard-er, but Willian got it back 9 minutes after half time. But Victor Moses headed in the winner 4 minutes into stoppage time.

Manchester United are the first British team through to the next round with a 3-1 win against Braga in Portugal. Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez. The other results are:
Bayern Munich 6-1 Lille, Benifica 2-0 Spartak Moscow, CFR Cluj-Napoca 1-3 Galatasary, Juventus 4-0 Nordsjaelland, Valencia 4-2 BATE Borisov.
