[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Matchday 4] Arsenal gained revenge for its loss at home two weeks ago with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund that extended its winning streak on the road to 15 games in all competitions and dropped last season's runner-up into third place their Champions League group with two games to play.

Dortmund was the better team until Aaron Ramsey's goal in the 62nd minute broke the deadlock, but the Gunners were in control after that.
They are now tied for the lead in Group F with Napoli, a 3-2 winner over Marseille.

"Dortmund was the better side in the first half. But after our goal we should have scored another," Arsenal's coach Arsene Wenger said. "Once we were in the lead, we were not so much under pressure."

Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp believes Arsenal can win the Champions League -- with one proviso.

"They are young, healthy and good technicians," he said. "They won a clever game tonight and could go to the final and win it -- as long as they don't play against Bayern Munich."

The only team to clinch a berth in the round of 16 on Wednesday was Atletico Madrid though Barcelona is close with a five-point lead in Group H.

Bayern Munich and Manchester City clinched after four games on Tuesday.



AMERICAN CONNECTION. Jermaines Jones made his second straight start for Schalke 04 in its 3-0 loss at Chelsea, which took the lead in Group E with its third straight win after an opening loss.

    Barcelona also qualified to the round of 16. Do your math.

    I'm no math genius but looking at the standings on UEFA it appears Barca have not yet qualified. Granted it's extremely unlikely since they would have to lose to Ajax and Celtic while Ajax would have to win out. Not going to happen, I know, but still technically possible.

    Paul, Barcelona can't finish below second. Ajax is playing AC Milan. So if Ajax wins, AC Milan can't get 6 points and move above Barcelona. So, mathematically, Barcelona qualified but it's not guaranteed top spot yet.
