The first week of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League campaign was completed on Wednesday night with a number of surprising results again the order of the day.
In the same group, Bayern Munich required a 90th minute strike from Jerome Boateng to down his old club Manchester City 1-0 while Barcelona edged Cypriot outfit APOEL Nicosia in 1-0 thanks to Gerard Pique's first-half goal in Group F.
