UEFA Champions League Results Match Day 5 (Tuesday November 26th)

It was an important day of games despite lacking a marquee match up between big clubs. The most important game of the day was between Borussia Dortmund and Napoli. In order to control their destiny in the group, Dortmund desperately needed a win at home over Napoli. The Italian side came into the match in second place in the group, but were over powered by the German’s attack. Dortmund got a penalty from Marco Reus and two goals in the second half to get the points.

As expected, Marseille fell to Arsenal in London two goals to nil.

AC Milan was in second behind Barcelona and vulnerable to losing their second place spot in the group if they lost to Celtic on the road. They handled their business and got goals from Kaká, Christian Zapata and Mario Balotelli to win 3-0.

Ajax stunned a weakened Barcelona team to get some much-needed points to keep up with AC Milan and Barcelona at the top of the group. Barcelona’s lone goal came on a penalty.

FC Basel were hosting Chelsea in group play and seemed overmatched, it was a slow game seemed destined towards a scoreless draw. Basel’s Mohamed Salah scored in the 87th minute to give Basel the win and move into second place in Group E. Schalke 04 and Steaua Bucuresti finished in a scoreless draw allowing Basel to leapfrog Schalke.
