Champions League roundup

Group E
Fiorentina shocked visiting Liverpool 2-0, both goals coming from Stevan Jovetic. It was the Reds first away-loss in 16 months. Lyon picked up a huge win on the road, 4-0 at Debrecen. Three goals came in the first 24 minutes.

Group F
Inter Milan was held to a disappointing 1-1 draw against FK Rubin Kazan in Russia. The Italians were perhaps lucky to escape with a point, especially considering Mario Balotelli's send off. In the other game, Barca dispatched of Dynamo Kiev 2-0.

Group G
Sevilla rocked host Rangers with a 4-1 win. Luis Fabiano (above) and Freddie Kanoute led the Spanish side to a dominating win. Also, Stuttgart got a point on the road, tying Unirea Urziceni (they're Romanian) 1-1.

Group H
Arsenal got past Olympiakos with a 2-0 win behind second-half goals from Robin van Persie and Andrei Arshavin. On the other side, AZ Alkmaar and Standard Liege tied 1-1 on a last-gasp equalizer from the Belgians.
