FC Schalke 04, Manchester City FC and seven-goal Chelsea FC joined Club Atlético de Madrid and SL Benfica in qualifying for the round of 16. The English sides, like Atlético, have 100% records after four matches. Indeed, Chelsea were the only team to finish last season's inaugural UEFA Youth League group stage with a maximum 18 points.
FC Bayern Munchen 3-2 AS Roma
• Bayern gained their first points of the campaign thanks to three goals in the last 18 minutes. Trailing to a double from Toni Sanabria – on target four times for FC Barcelona in the group stage last term – Heiko Vogel's charges were inspired by captain Marco Hingerl, who set up Miloš Pantović for Bayern's first and then headed in a 74th-minute equaliser. Arturo Calabresi's own goal won it for the hosts.
Manchester City FC 4-2 PFC CSKA Moskva
• City completed the double over CSKA, having taken just a point from the clubs' two meetings last autumn. The Army Men twice levelled against Patrick Vieira's side, but City upped the tempo after being pegged back for the second time. Brandon Barker's second of the game put City 3-2 ahead and Thierry Ambrose got his reward for being a constant threat down the right with a goal late on.
Paris Saint-Germain 6-0 APOEL FC
• Paris are up to second, above holders Barcelona who lost 1-0 at AFC Ajax last night, with a victory that ends APOEL's hopes. Yakou Meïté and Jean-Kévin Augustin both netted twice while APOEL had Christos Xydas sent off on 53 minutes with the score already 4-0. Paris are a point behind Ajax, whom they visit on 26 November, and two in front of Barcelona, APOEL's visitors the previous day.
NK Maribor 0-7 Chelsea FC
• Dominic Solanke – who made his UEFA Champions League debut on matchday three when Chelsea thrashed Maribor 6-0 at Stamford Bridge – registered twice as the Londoners racked up five goals before the break in making it four wins out of four. The point-less hosts did not have a shot on target. Maribor played the last 20 minutes, during which Chelsea added two more goals, with ten men following Luka Uskoković's dismissal.
Sporting Clube de Portugal 2-3 FC Schalke 04
• Schalke's triumph in Alcochete assured them and Chelsea of a spot in the knockout stage with two games to spare, though the German outfit did it the hard way. Trailing 2-0 at half-time, Schalke had restored parity by the 65th minute, Sporting's Fábio Martins having been sent off before the hour. They won it in stoppage time through Leroy Sané's shot after a series of rebounds inside the penalty area.
Athletic Club 3-1 FC Porto
• Athletic are a point behind their opponents in third place after this come-from-behind victory. Substitute Iñigo Vicente was the difference in a physical encounter, scoring twice in three minutes, his first a penalty, midway through the second half.
FC Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 FC BATE Borisov
• Beka Vachiberadze's 37th-minute strike settled the match in Shakhtar's favour. The Pitmen, top of the section with ten points from four games, were largely in control throughout, ensuring their back line a quiet afternoon. A fourth defeat ends BATE's slim qualification hopes.
