UEFA Champions League review

Changes atop the group standings were evident during the last two days of UEFA Champions League play, as Manchester United and FC Barcelona seized first place in their respective groups.

Manchester claimed first in Group B with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Wolfsburg at Old Trafford. Edin Dzeko gave Wolfsburg the lead in the 56th minute, but it lasted all but three minutes, as Ryan Giggs equalized in the 59th minute and Michael Carrick scored the game winner in the 78th minute.

Also moving into the top spot, this one in Group F, was FC Barcelona, who defeated Dynamo Kiev 2-0 at Camp Nou to overtake Kiev in the standings. In Group A, Bayern Munich's 0-0 draw against Juventus allows Bordeaux to move into a first place tie in the standings.

Real Madrid took control of Group C with a 3-0 win over Mariselle behind two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka scored on a penalty kick in the 61st minute. Meanwhile, AC Milan, already struggling in Serie A play, fell to FC Zurich 1-0 at the San Siro.
