Arsenal defeated Montpellier 2-0 to join Schalke, a 1-0 winner over Olympiacos, in progressing from Group B. Paris Saint-Germain beat Dynamo Kiev 2-0 to advance from Group A and AC Milan moved on from Group C after a 3-1 win over Anderlecht.

Porto beat Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 in Group A and Malaga drew 2-2 at Zenit St. Petersburg in Group C. Both Porto and Malaga had already qualified for the knockout stages or Europe’s elite club competition.
