Roma 3- 0 Chelsea. El Shaawawy scored his second goal in the 36th minute. Recall he score the first goal also in the first minute into the match, 

This is how Roma scored their first goal, Aleksandar Kolarov bombed down the left, found former Manchester City team-mate Edin Dzeko and he flicked it down to Stephan El Shaarawy for an absolute Halloween screamer.

     Manchester United v Benfica:

    It wasn’t a thriller a fortnight ago but it was ‘job done’ by Manchester United. Benfica were a very poor side though.

    I know their results have since picked up and Jose Mourinho continues to say they are a better side than the other teams in the group, but they certainly weren’t from what we saw the other night.

    Mourinho did say he won’t be thinking of the Chelsea game (in the Premier League.) In his mind, he wants to get the win tonight and qualify for the next round.

    Ahead of the match, Jose mourinho has come out in defence of his striker Romelu Lukaku after he was criticised by fans following his inability to keep his scoring spree for the club.
    The £75m summer signing from Everton, 24, scored 11 goals in his first 10 games – but none in his last five.But, Mourinho explained that “What he (Lukaku) does for the team is fantastic and to play football for a striker is not just about scoring goals.””I think Romelu is one of the players who should be untouchable in terms of respect from everyone.”The Belgium forward, sold by Mourinho while he was Chelsea manager, drew his fifth blank in a row against Tottenham on Saturday – but did set up Anthony Martial’s winner.

    Roma v Chelsea

    For Chelsea tonight the equation is simple. Win in Rome and they qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

    Chelsea make only one change from the side who beat Bournemouth 1-0 on Saturday. Captain Gary Cahill replaces Davide Zappacosta, who drops to the bench. Eden Hazard starts again. N’Golo Kante doesn’t return from the hamstring injury which has kept him out for a month.

    Roma make three switches from Saturday’s 1-0 win over Bologna. Former Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov, star midfielder Radja Nainggolan and Diego Perotti all come in. Edin Dzeko, who scored twice at Stamford Bridge, starts.

    Olympiakos v Barcelona

    Barcelona will qualify from Group D if they beat Olympiakos and Juventus don’t lose to Sporting Lisbon. A Barca draw will be enough if Juventus win.

    Juve are through if they win and Barca don’t lose.

    In a similar vein, Paris St-Germain and Bayern Munich can both help to send each other through tonight. PSG will qualify if they beat Anderlecht, and Bayern don’t lose to Celtic. A draw would do PSG if Bayern win.

    Bayern will progress from Group B if they win and PSG don’t lose.

    In Group A, Basel are through if they beat CSKA Moscow at home and Manchester United avoid defeat at home to Benfica.

    Ernesto Valverde’s Barca side will qualify for the last 16 if they better the result of Sporting Lisbon, who are at home to Juventus.

    Valverde managed Olympiakos in two spells between 2008 and 2012.

    “It’s emotional to come here to Athens, to this stadium, for what it has meant to me and for what is at stake,” said Valverde, 53.

    “Even though they (Olympiakos fans) will give me a good reception, I’m sure they will be right behind their team.”

    Olympiakos, who are still without a point in Group D, will see their slim hopes of qualification end if they lose and Juventus avoid defeat away at Sporting Lisbon.

    Celtic v Bayern Munich

    Bayern missing some big guns

    We already knew that in-form Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, injured on Saturday against Leipzig, and strike partner Thomas Muller would be missing for Bayern.

    Head coach Jupp Heynckes has made four other changes from that Bundesliga win, with the German media suggesting he has one eye on this weekend’s big league clash with main rivals Borussia Dortmund.

    Germany defenders Joshua Kimmich and Mats Hummels drop to the bench along with midfielders Thiago and Sebantian Rudy.

    Niklas Sule and Rafinha come into the defence, while Arturo Vidal, Cortentina Tolisso and Kingsley Coman coming into midfield, the latter having shaken off an injury.

    Could those changes give Celtic a window of opportunity?
