The opening legs of the playoffs to decide the final Champions League group stage qualifiers got underway on this week, with Arsenal, Milan, Schalke and Celtic among the big clubs involved.

Arsene Wenger, feeling the heat with the transfer window soon to close, saw his side thoroughly dominant Fenerbahce in Istanbul, where Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud all got on the scoresheet in the second half.

Unfortunately it was far from a successful evening's work for Celtic on Tuedsay, as they left themselves a somewhat uphill battle back in Scotland's in a week's time after finding themselves stunned by Kazakhstan's Shakhter Karagandy.

Meanwhile, AC Milan found themselves in a real battle with a young and energetic PSV Eindhoven side, while there were two phenomenal goals in the contest between Lyon and Real Sociedad.

Read on for a full round-up of the week's first legs.
