MOST COMMENTED

[WINNERS & LOSERS] It was quite a night in the UEFA Champions League. Tuesday saw Liverpool break one scoring record, and AC Milan's Filippo Inzaghi tie another. In a stunning result, Norway's Rosenborg spoiled Ronald Koeman's debut as Valencia coach with a 2-0 win at the Estadio Mestalla.

WINNERS

LIVERPOOL set a Champions League record for the largest margin of victory with an 8-0 win over Besiktas. After opening group play with a tie and two losses, the Reds answered their critics with an overwhelming display against Besiktas, which had won when the teams met in Istanbul two weeks earlier. Israeli Yossi Benayoun grabbed a hat trick, and Ryan Babel and Peter Crouch scored two goals each. The victory broke the record shared by Arsenal and Juventus since the Gunners' 7-0 demolition of Slavia Prague two weeks ago.

AC Milan's FILIPPO INZAGHI equaled German Gerd Mueller's all-time record of 62 goals in European club soccer with two goals in the Rossoneri's 3-0 win at Shakhtar Donetsk that moved them into first place in Group D.

Olympiakos goalkeeper ANTONIOS NIKOPOLIDIS was sensational in holding Real Madrid to a 0-0 tie that left the Greek club tied for second place with Lazio, three points behind Real Madrid in Group C.

LOSERS

Valencia's troubles continued as it fell to Norway's Rosenborg, 2-0, at home in RONALD KOEMAN's first game as Valencia coach. Steffen Iversen's two goals were the difference in the game. Koeman saw nothing wrong with the result that left Rosenborg in second place in Group B, one point point behind Chelsea while Valencia fell into last place. "Rosenborg defended and passed the ball very well," he said. "I congratulate them on the result because they deserved to win."


With Freddy Adu on the bench, BENFICA fell into last place in Group D with a 1-0 loss at Celtic, which won on a long-range strike by 21-year-old Aiden McGeady. A miserable evening for the Lisbon club was made complete when Augustin Binya was sent off in the 85th minute for a horrific foul on Scott Brown.
