Unstoppable Manchester United beat Bursaspor

The "Red Devils" are improving with every game, and tonight's 3-0 win over Bursaspor was a clear hint for the rest of the powerful clubs that Ferguson's side is after the crown again.

European teams usually say that is hard to play in Turkey, but Manchester United was really confortable against Bursaspor. And the triumph came with goals by Darren Fletcher, Gabriel Obertan and an own goal by Ali Tandoğan.

United is the leader of a group that includes Valencia and Rangers, and they are three points away from qualification.

Current Champions Inter defeated by Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspurs made history tonight by defeating current champions Inter of Milan 3-1. The engish goals were netted by Rafael Van der Vaart, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko.

The british team was a fair winner, since they proved to have options in their midfield and offensive zone. As for the italian powerhouse, you can't tell this is the same team that won this tournament four months ago.

Samuel Eto'o was the main and only real weapon in the italian attack. He managed to score one goal, but that was not enough to beat the Spurs. Even Diego Milito and Coutinho were not able to save their team from defeat.

Valencia in the next stage, Barcelona not yet

Valencia defeated Rangers FC 3-0 with a double scored by Roberto Soldado. The spanish striker was the hero of the night with a superb performance in this Champions League game.

Coach Unai Emer was decided to get the three points and used many offensive men on the field, all of them lead by Soldado and Aduriz. The final result demonstrate he was right.

As for Barcelona, they only got a 1-1 draw against FC København in Denmark. Despite an explosive beginning which included a nice goal by Lio Messi, the local team was talented enough to equalize one minute after that, thanks to Claudemir.

Guardiola's team remain in the first position of their group, but they have not yet secured a ticket for the next stage.
