LONDON -- Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea recovered from poor starts in the Champions League by winning their first group matches Antworten

LONDON -- Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea recovered from poor starts in the Champions League by winning their first group matches on Tuesday, while Barcelona beat 10-man Celtic 1-0 to avoid a second consecutive loss at Celtic Park. DeAndre Yedlin Jersey . Robert Lewandowski scored a brace as Dortmund, last-seasons runner-up, defeated Marseille 3-0 in Group F. Arsenal leads the group with six points after a 2-0 win over Napoli. Chelsea kick-started its campaign with a 4-0 rout of Steaua Bucharest in a Group E dominated by Schalke. Julian Draxler made sure the German side maintained its 100 per cent record this season with a superb half-volley that earned his side a 1-0 win at Basel, where activists protesting against Champions League sponsor Gazprom abseiled from the stadium roof and forced the match to be briefly suspended. Missing the injured Lionel Messi, Barcelona earned a workmanlike second win in Group H, courtesy of Cesc Fabregas strike at the scene of last seasons shock defeat. In the groups other match, Mario Balotelli converted a penalty in the fourth minute of injury time to give AC Milan a 1-1 draw against Ajax. Ramires scored twice to help Chelsea get its Champions League campaign back on track following a surprise 2-1 home defeat by Basel to open Group E. "We played good football with intelligence and maturity," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. "We needed to clean what we did at home (against Basel) and we did it with a good result and performance. Now we are not in a dramatic situation, we are in a close situation." The Blues dominated throughout and opened the scoring in the 20th minute through Ramires. They doubled their lead on the stroke of halftime when Daniel Georgievski scored an own goal before Ramires and Frank Lampard sealed Chelseas victory after the break. Atletico Madrid moved on to six points as second-half goals from Diego Godin and Arda Turan helped the Spanish side to a 2-1 win at Porto in Group G. Dortmund was in a different class to Marseille and took the lead when Lewandowski ended a counter-attack with a clinical finish in the 19th minute. As Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp watched from the stands after being banned for one match, the tall striker then converted a penalty in 80th. Marco Reus was also on the score sheet as Marseille slipped to its second consecutive defeat. "We played a very good game, but we have to play the next one just as well," Lewandowski said. At the Emirates, Mesut Ozil again proved to be an excellent signing for Arsene Wengers team as the Gunners took command of the group, three points clear at the top ahead of Dortmunds visit on Oct. 22. Ozils first goal since becoming Arsenals most expensive player and another strike from Olivier Giroud within the opening 15 minutes were ideal presents for Wenger, who celebrated 17 years in charge at the London club. Ozil sidefooted into the net in the eighth minute after Giroud chested down the ball and flicked it onto Aaron Ramsey, who delivered the cross that the playmaker met. "It is everything that you dream to see when you sit in the stands watching football," Wenger said. "Its always on your mind a little bit (scoring your first goal) so he got rid of it." Ozil then assisted Giroud, pulling back the ball for the former Montpellier forward to score in the 15th minute. In a game short of chances, Barcelona had to wait until the 75th minute to avoid another frustrating night in Glasgow, having slumped to a shock defeat to Celtic in the group stage last season. The Spanish giants capitalized on the sending-off of Celtic captain Scott Brown, who was given a straight red card in the 59th minute for kicking out at Neymar. Celtics overworked defence failed to hold out for the final half hour as Fabregas headed a cross by substitute Alexis Sanchez into the corner, earning Barcelona a second straight victory in Group H after beating Ajax 4-0. In Porto, Turan scored the winner four minutes from time as Atletico Madrid rallied to secure a 2-1 win. The result sent the Spanish club to the top of Group G, three points clear of Porto. Zenit St. Petersburg and Austria Vienna drew 0-0 in the other group game and have one point each. Atletico is unbeaten this season and defeated Real Madrid in the Spanish league last weekend. But it was tested by two-time European champion Portos strong first-half performance, with Jackson Martinez scoring from a diving header in the 16th before Godin and Turan struck after the break. Andrija Novakovich Jersey . Ferrer, the two-time defending champion in Buenos Aires, is aiming to win his 21st ATP tournament. Ferrer will next face fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro, the fourth seed, who defeated Jeremy Chardy of France 7-6 (7), 6-3 in another quarterfinal match. Walker Zimmerman USA Jersey . -- Brandon Hope stopped 46 shots and Kurtis MacDermid scored with 27 seconds remaining in overtime as the Owen Sound Attack edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 5-4 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. . -- Jacksonville Jaguars rookie receiver Marqise Lee has agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth more than $5 million.Stephen Myler landed an injury-time penalty to give Northampton a winning start to their Champions Cup campaign in a 16-14 victory over Montpellier at Franklins Gardens. Myler was on target in the final act of the game to ensure Saints domestic malaise, consisting of four defeats in six Aviva Premiership matches, was not carried into Europe.France No 8 Louis Picamoles was outstanding once again and finished as man of the match, but it was Myler who landed the killer blow after Montpellier scrum-half Nic White had failed to put the ball into touch. Montpellier, who sit second in the French league, fielded a gigantic starting XV with a large South African contingent and their bench was every bit as imposing, but Saints camped in their 22 in the final 10 minutes and were eventually rewarded. Highlights of Northamptons victory over Montpellier at Franklins Gardens The result will have eased the anxiety at Franklins Gardens caused by a poor start to the season which saw attack coach Alex King, who was linked with England less than 12 months ago, leave the club on Friday.Northampton, who withdrew Courtney Lawes from the team before kick-off, surged ahead after two minutes, luckily rescuing a stray lineout before Harry Mallinder spotted a chink in the visiting defence and raced into the hole.Once tackled he passed over the top to Picamoles on the left touchline and the back row powered through two defenders before slipping a superb offload to Calum Clark who slipped over. Harry Mallinder gets through Pierre Spies and Alexandre Dumoulin Mallinders influential start continued as he pick-pocketed lock Paul Willemse when Montpellier were on the brink of scoring and strong defence from Saints continued to keep them at bay. Justin Morrow USA Jersey. The lead extended to 10 points when Myler landed a penalty to accompany his earlier conversion and it looked like being Northamptons night when full-back Benjamin Fall declined a two-man overlap to go it alone only to fall inches short.But Montpellier were not so wasteful when the whitewash beckoned next with Nemani Nadolo slipping a clever pass to Joffrey Michel and the replacement full-back timed his scoring pass to Francois Steyn perfectly.

A burst of speed and agile footwork from Picamoles enabled Northampton to turn defence in to attack and after briefly threatening from a five-metre scrum they were able to secure three more points through Mylers boot.Picamoles offloading was proving infectious as he produced another pass out of the tackle and then saw Sam Dickinson do the same as Saints launched a counter-attack.Steyn reduced the deficit to two points with a penalty to set-up a finely-poised final quarter, but the South Africa centre was subsequently guilty of missing the simplest of kicks. Steyn appeared to have won it for Montpellier with a late kick Mallinder missed touch and Montpellier were able to launch a counter that ended with Steyn finding his mark and edging his men in front, his two penalties going alongside one from Ben Botica.Northampton spent all of the last 10 minutes in the visiting half and when George North broke and chipped ahead, the line beckoned but Montpelliers defence scrambled in time.Mallinder fell short with a long-range penalty but with the final whistle about to blow, Myler hit the mark.You can watch Liverpool v Man Utd, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the British Masters on Sky Sports.
