Olympique de Lyon - Real Madrid 2-0

In recent years, Lyon proved to be a tough opponent for Real Madrid and the French champions showed that again in the eleventh minute when a long ball from Juninho ended up in front of Brazilian striked Fred, who lofted it over Casillas to open the score.

A few minutes later, Lyon almost got a second but Casillas only just managed to control the ball on his goal-line.

Things got worse for Madrid in the 31st minute however. A pass from the edge of the area found Tiago, who tipped it past Casillas to set the score to 2-0.

Fred came close to scoring another in the 34th minute. A free kick from Juninho was fisted away by Casillas but Fred almost got his head to the ball in the rebound.

Lyon continued to dominate and created one big chance after the other. With four minutes to go in the first half, Madrid were lucky as Florent Malouda hit the crossbar.

Nothing changed for Real Madrid after the break, as Lyon easily penetrated the Spanish defense to create more chances in front of Casillas' goal.

The Spaniards did gain some strength however when coach Fabio Capello brought on Reyes, Guti and Robinho. Striker Ruud van Nistelrooy had a small opportunity in the 79th minute, but hit the side-net.

The Dutchman had a better chance in the 90th minute, but failed to head on goal from close range and allowed Lyon's defense to clear.

Dynamo Kiev - Steaua Bucharest 1-4

Steaua Bucharest needed less than three minutes to celebrate their return to Europe's most prestigious club competition. Sorin Ghionea headed home from a corner to put his side in the lead.

Not much later, Dynamo almost levelled the score but Correa had his effort from about ten meters cleared off the line.

But in the 16th minute, the Ukranian hosts did equalise. Serhiy Rebrov combined with Diogo Rincon before firing past goalkeeper Fernandes for 1-1.

However, the Romanians restored their lead in the 24th minute, when Valentin Badea headed onto the left post, after which the ball disappeared behind the goalkeeper.

In the 43rd minute, Steaua even added a third. A free kick from Nicolae Dica sailed into the upper right corner. Goalkeeper Shovkovskiy did get his hand to the ball but could not prevent it from hitting the net.

In the second half, less chances were created as Steaua began to defend their lead. Shatskikh came close in the 66th minute, but had his effort saved by the keeper.

But in the 79th minute, the Romanian guests did add another. Dica scored his second of the night by lofting the ball over the goalkeeper, at the end of a counter-attack.
