The latest round of Champions League fixtures served up an impressive total of 38 goals across the 16 group stage fixtures from gameweek four.

Arsenal recorded the result of the round after claiming a crucial 1-0 victory over last year's finalists Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park, with Aaron Ramsey returning Arsene Wenger's side to the top of Group F with his 11th goal of the season.

Napoli join the Gunners on nine points after recording a 3-2 victory over Marseille, who are now eliminated, leaving third place Dortmund's qualification hopes in the balance.

Chelsea regained control of Group E following a resounding 3-0 victory over Schalke at Stamford Bridge, and need just one point to book their place in the last-16, with FC Basel and Steaua Bucharest drawing 1-1 in Switzerland.

Manchester United and Real Sociedad played out one of only two goalless draws of the round, with the other shutout coming in the corresponding Group A fixture between Shakhtar Donetsk and Bayer Leverkusen.

Manchester City meanwhile have booked their place in the knockout stages for the very first time in the club's history, following an emphatic 5-2 victory over CSKA Moscow at the Etihad Stadium.

They'll be joined by reigning champions Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, who are the only two sides to retain a 100 per cent record in the competition in 2013/14, following respective 1-0 and 4-0 victories over Viktoria Plzen and FK Austria Vienna.

Zenit St Petersburg and FC Porto played out a 1-1 draw in Russia.

Barcelona are also through after their 3-1 victory over AC Milan in Group H, courtesy of two goals from Lionel Messi, while Ajax's 1-0 victory over Celtic kept the Dutch giants' hopes of qualification alive.

Real Madrid need one more point to guarantee their progression, after being held to a 2-2 draw with Juventus in Group B on Tuesday, while Copenhagen and Galatasaray are both still in with a chance of advancing, following a 1-0 win in the Danish side's favour this week.

Paris Saint-Germain will qualify from Group C if they beat Olympiakos - who won 1-0 against Benfica - in their next match, after recording a disappointing 1-1 draw with Anderlecht.
