Monaco top the group on four points, one clear of Tottenham who had Heung-Min Son to thank for a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow in the Russia capital.

Leverkusen are a further point adrift in third while CSKA prop up the bottom of the table with a single point.

Reigning champions Real Madrid were held to a 2-2 draw at Borussia Dortmund.

Andre Schuerrle came off the bench to snatch a late goal and earn a deserved point for the Germans who twice came from behind. 

Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane scored for Real while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit Dortmund’s first.

Dortmund and Real lead the group on four points, one ahead of Sporting who celebrated a 2 – 0 win over competition newcomers Legia Warszawa.

Leicester City put their domestic troubles behind them to maintain a perfect start to their debut appearance in Europe’s top club competition.

The foxes secured a 1-0 win over Porto courtesy of a 25th minute Islam Slimani header.

It was the Algerian International’s sixth goal in his last four matches against Porto, having joined Leicester from Sporting Lisbon in August.

Leicester top Group G with six points, two clear of Copenhagen who thrashed Club Brugge 4-0.

Gonzalo Higuain netted his first champion league goal for Juventus as the Italian side thumped Dinamo Zagreb  4-0 in their Group H match.
