One Foot In The Door

Sparta Prague 0-2 Arsenal
Fabregas 72
Hleb 90

A win, a draw, or even a 1 goal loss next week in London and Arsenal are in.

Cesc scored two goals in the corresponding match last year away to Dinamo Zagreb in a match Arsenal won 0-3. Damn Cescy.

The rest of the 1st leg results:

Sevilla 2-0 AEK Athens
Toulouse 0-1 Liverpool
Ajax 0-1 Slavia Prague
Spartak Moscow 1-1 Celtic
Werder Bremen 2-1 Dinamo Zagreb
FK Sarajevo 0-1 Dynamo Kiev
Fenerbache 1-0 Anderlecht
FC Zurich 1-1 Besiktas
SV Salzburg 1-0 Shakhtar Donetsk
BATE Borisov 2-2 Steaua Bucharest
Tampere United 0-3 Rosenborg

Yesterday's 1st leg results
Valencia 3-0 Elfsborg
Benfica 2-1 FC Copenhagen
Rangers 1-0 Crvena Zvezda
Lazio 1-1 Dinamo Bucharest

Everything pretty much as you would expect, with the exception of Ajax losing at home and now needing a big effort on the road next week.

Return legs next Tuesday & Wednesday, which means that the draw for the Champions League group stages is probably next Thursday or Friday.
