    Continued from here.

    Congratulations to Cristiano Ronaldo for winning back-to-back OTT titles. Must be some kind of record.

    Torn between wanting to stream Milan-Malaga or Schalke-Arsenal.
    Been following Malaga's progress since the start so will probably stream them.

    Oh Man City ... already down to Ajax. Broken play from a corner.

    Borussia posing RM problems. Already 2 decent chances to score.

    Make that 2 for Ajax ! Off the corner again. Man City defending off corners is atrocious.

    Mancini will surely lose his job after this season.

    Yaya scores a very nice goal to pull one back for Man City. Great chest trap / shot with his back to the goal.

    If they get dumped from CL in group stages it could be even sooner than "after" this season, more like during. Sure, they are in the group of death, but if back to back losses to Ajax (or even a loss and draw as ManC score) are the nails in their coffin I could see the hammer come down much sooner. Of course it depends who can come in for them mid year, and whether they want to risk disrupting their EPL campaign when they sit just 2 points from first place after 10 games.

    Borussia are up 1 x 0 !! Arbeloa goes to sleep on the left and Reus scores a nice goal.

    Game is fairly even but Ronaldo is having a howler of a game. I am fairly sure RM will score though.

    Milan dominating the opportunities on goal.
    Caballero with two outstanding saves for Malaga, one off a deflected shot and the other off a brilliant Emanuelson free kick.

    Ajax and Dortmund need to win tonight to keep the pressure in the group for LPB, who will end up qualifying eventually anyway, but better to have it tough for them than easy.

    Pepe ties it up on a header. Barely enough time for RM fans to suffer.

    Pepe ties it up. Mourinho acting like every foul that doesn't go his way is a reason to shake his hands in disgust.. tool.

    40' GOL!
    Fantastic through ball from Isco to Eliseu who calmly places past Amelia. Beautiful goal.

    Yes! Dortmund in front again with a counter right before half. Not even a second of play after the goal, whistle blows. Let that marinate in the Madrid locker room over the half.

    Borussia scores again !!! Right at the end. Right down the middle !

    2 x 1

    Ronaldo has basically messed up every single play where he touched the ball. :p

    HT in Group C
    Milan 0-1 Malaga
    Anderlecht 1-0 Zenit
    If these results hold Malaga would officially win the group. A draw in Brussels would also do the trick.

    CRonaldo looks terrible. Higuain too, but he seemed to have tweaked a hamstring so will probably come off. All of the decent chances for Madrid seemed to come off set plays. Casillas was weak on the first goal too.

    That Yaya goal was a beauty!

    I kind of want Man City to lose, especially if it would get Mancini canned, but it would be good for them to win so they would still have everything to play with next match day against LPB.

    Callejon coming in has already made a difference. RM looking better on offense.

    RM started the half good but now finding it harder to create decent chances. But Borussia hasn't really held on to the ball well enough or given any threats in the counter.

    73' GOL!
    Pato heads in a cross from (I think it was) Boateng on the left.
    Milan 1-1 Malaga

    EDIT:
    Emanuelson sent in the cross.
    First goal conceded by Malaga in the Champions League.
