Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea missed the opportunity to guarantee top spot in group H of the Champions League after they were stunned 1-0 by FC Basel at Sankt Jakob-Park on Tuesday.

In group F, Arsenal outclassed Marseille while Borussia Dortmund bounced back from their disappointing 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich at the weekend with a convincing 3-1 win over Napoli thanks to goals from Marco Reus, Jakub Błaszczykowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Elsewhere, Porto were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Austria Vienna at the Estádio do Dragão while Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibault Courtois made a dreadful mistake to hand Zenit St Petersburg a 1-1 draw in Russia.

In group H, Ajax held on to edge out Barcelona 2-1 at the Amsterdam Arena and this win sees Frank de Boer’s men move 4 points clear of Celtic in the table after they suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss to AC Milan in Glasgow.
