After receiving the ball on the right, Robben weaved through the defence before firing into the bottom corner past Joe Hart. Watch the goal here

Robin Van Persie was part of the Manchester United eleven that faced Shakhtar Donetsk, with the striker unable to find the net in a disappointing 1-1 draw.

PSG were excellent against Benfica as they ran out 3-0 winners with right back Gregory van der Wiel impressing in he right back position. Ex-Ajax man Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the French side’s hero, scoring twice in the win.

Wesley Sneijder played 78 minutes for Galatasaray, as a last minute equaliser gave his side a 2-2 draw away at Serie A champions Juventus. The Turkish side needed to improve after losing to Real Madrid in the last round, and lead for most of the tie, before 3 late goals gave the game a crazy end.

Sadly it was not so good a night for Anderlecht defender Bram Nuytinck, who played in his sides 3-0 home defeat to Olympiakos.
