Atlético Madrid 1 (Simão) – Leverkusen 1 (Derdiyok). Another disappointing result for the defending champs. Forlán, what happened to you? Atlético are currently sitting at the bottom of Group B.

Villarreal 2 (Rossi, Gonzalo) – Club Brugge 1 (Donk). Villarreal’s Cani had a rough match, first getting elbowed by Ronald Vargas (who was promptly sent off), then being carried off on a stretcher after a vicious tackle from Jonathan Blondel (who only got a yellow card). He will be recovering for the next week or so.

Young Boys 2 (Degen 2) – Getafe 0. Between injuries and Míchel’s experimental lineup, it should perhaps be no surprise that Getafe failed to follow up their win against Odense. Adding to their injury list, Mario Álvarez ruptured his Achilles tendon in the match. This means he’ll be out for the rest of the season, pobrecito.

Borussia 0 – Sevilla 1 (Cigarini). Gregorio Manzano is off to a good start as Sevilla’s new manager. Luca Cigarini scored just before the break, and Borussia Dortmund couldn’t recover after Marcel Schmelzer was sent off in the second half.
