AC Milan 1 - 0 Braga

A stunning strike by substitute Ronaldinho saw AC Milan snatch a last-gasp victory against SC Braga to take a three-point lead at the top of UEFA Cup Group E.

Ronaldinho, who had replaced Pato in the 63rd minute, unleashed an unstoppable added-time winner to deny Braga the point their gutsy performance looked to have earned. With the final whistle in sight, a cross from the left was flicked towards the Brazilian by Gennaro Gattuso and Ronaldinho unleashed a stunning shot into the top-left corner from outside the area

Tottenham 4 - 0 Dinamo Zagreb

Darren Bent registered a hat-trick against NK Dinamo Zagreb as Tottenham Hotspur FC's revival under Harry Redknapp continued with a comprehensive Group D victory at White Hart Lane.

Tom Huddlestone had a hand in all of Bent's goals and added a stunning effort himself, meeting a corner with a glorious first-time volley. The north London side have now earned three wins and a spectacular draw against neighbours Arsenal FC in the four games since Redknapp replaced Juande Ramos as manager, and are firmly in contention for a place in the knockout stages.

Manchester City 3 - 2 FC Twente

Manchester City FC showed brilliance at one end and sloppiness at the other but emerged with a 3-2 victory in their opening UEFA Cup Group A game against an FC Twente side coached by former England manager Steve McClaren.

Shaun Wright-Phillips put City ahead after two minutes, but having handed Eljero Elia a 17th-minute equaliser, the Premier League team looked to have lost their way until Robinho scored their sensational second goal. Substitute Benjani Mwaruwari put them 3-1 up and though the City of Manchester Stadium crowd were kept on their toes as Rob Wielaert responded for Twente, the hosts held on.

Slavia Praha 0 - 1 Aston Villa

Aston Villa FC held off a determined SK Slavia Praha comeback to claim a narrow win that gives them an early three-point advantage atop UEFA Cup Group F.

Karel JarolĂ­m was yesterday named Czech Coach of the Year but celebrations were cut short on a frustrating evening at Eden Stadium. Villa were dominant before the interval, even if their goal midway through the first half owed much to good fortune as Steve Sidwell's shot took a heavy deflection off John Carew, leaving goalkeeper Martin Vaniak helpless as it span into the far corner. Slavia could have been two or three down by the break but the second half was all theirs, possession and chances alike – albeit without an end result. EUFA
