All square at Calderón (2-2)


Barça’s next Liga opposition, Atlético Madrid, have drawn with Porto. In other games, Inter and Manchester United ended scoreless (0-0) while Arsenal narrowly edged it against Roma (1-0).

No fewer than three of the first leg matches on Tuesday night ended in draws, and tonight’s only winner, Arsenal, only managed by a solitary goal. Atlético Madrid, who entertain Barça on Sunday, were held at home by Porto at the Calderón. The Spanish side went ahead twice through Maxi (min 3) and Forlán (min 45), but Lisandro was at hand both times to bring things level (min 21 and 71).

No goals at Giuseppe Meazza

One of the most eagerly awaited games of the night was the one between Inter Milan and Manchester United. The Premiership outfit created plenty of chances, but failed to beat an inspired Julio César, and it all ended goalless.

Arsenal win from the spot
