(Hakan Sükür, Gheorghe Hagi)

A very busy night in the EFCL today, with four Champions League matches, all of them 6-point reversals. In Greece, Juve lose their 2003 double over Olympiacos, in Spain Real Madrid score their first ever goals and their first ever victory over Liverpool after three defeats in three, in Belgium Arsenal win with two goals in the last five minutes to avenge a 1970 defeat, and in Turkey Dortmund put Galatasaray to the sword 14 years later. The most important consequence of all these results is that we have a new leader, European Champions Real Madrid, on 97 points, one ahead of dethroned Bayern. At the opposite end of the table, we also have a new table-propper, Anderlecht, and everyone else involved tonight lose or gain a place in the EFCL classification. Night like these are why we have this blog... and the reverse fixtures could be as dramatic in a fortnight.

-----Games 9, 10-----

Incoming game: 2014-10-21 CGS - Roma 1 Bayern 7
(Gervinho; Arjen Robben 2, Mario Götze, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller, Franck Ribéry, Xherdan Shaqiri)

(Thulani Serero, Danny Hoesen; Xavi Hernández)


Outgoing game: 2013-09-18 CGS - Barcelona 4 Ajax 0
(Lionel Messi 3, Gerard Piqué)

On the same year that Germany beat Brazil 1-7 in the World Cup, several of the same German players beat Roma by the same result in the Champions League. In Spain, after going for so long without meeting, Barça and Ajax share a group for the second year running. Both victories for Bayern and Barcelona come in for previous wins, so everything remains as it is.

-----Games 7, 8-----

Incoming game: 2014-10-05 NLe - Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0

Remaining game: 2014-05-11 NLe - Roma 0 Juventus 1
(Pablo Osvaldo)

Outgoing game: 2014-01-21 NCu - Roma 1 Juventus 0
(Gervinho)

Chelsea achieve a double over Arsenal and retain their remarkable record of having lost only six games in 50 EFCL-eligible current games, although their high number of drawn or not played matches (23) keeps the Blues still in 5th place in the table, while Arsenal go down to 11th. Roma and Juventus play their third game this calendar year, and the bianconeri also achieve a double over the giallorossi. This defeat means that Roma go from being the best Italian team in the table to third below Juve and Milan.

-----Game 6-----

Incoming game: 2014-09-20 NLe - Milan 0 Juventus 1
(Carlos Tévez)

Remaining game: 2014-03-02 NLe - Milan 0 Juventus 2
(Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tévez)

Outgoing game: 2013-10-06 NLe - Juventus 3 Milan 2
(Andrea Pirlo, Sabastian Giovinco, Giorgio Chiellini; Sulley Muntari 2)

Juve's stranglehold over Milan continues with yet another victory for the bianconeri. However, both teams remain tied for 12th spot in the EFCL table on 69 points.

-----Games 4, 5-----

Incoming game: 2014-09-16 CGS - Galatasaray 1 Anderlecht 1

Incoming game: 2014-09-16 CGS - Dortmund 2 Arsenal 0
(Henrik Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang)

Remaining game: 2013-11-06 CGS - Dortmund 0 Arsenal 1
(Aaron Ramsey)

Outgoing game: 2013-10-22 CGS - Arsenal 1 Dortmund 2
(Olivier Giroud; Henrik Mkhitaryan, Robert Lewandowski)

As many as ten EFCL clubs are absent from this year's Champions League (among them Manchester United, Milan, Inter, PSV, etc), so the number of possible EFCL games this season diminishes. Among the matchday 1 games in the Champions League, only these two were EFCL-eligible. It's the third game in four EFCL matches so far to feature Borussia Dortmund. As far as Anderlecht are concerned, their results v Galatasaray are so good (two 5-1 victories) that they will surely miss them. For starters, their fist win turns into a draw, which puts the Belgian side in the EFCL bottom three, while Gala remain 20th.

-----Game 3-----

Incoming game: 2014-08-24 NLe - Ajax 1 PSV 3
(Anwar El Ghazi; Memphis Depay, Luciano Narsingh, Florian Jozefzoon)

Remaining game: 2014-01-19 NLe - Ajax 1 PSV 0
(Kolbein Sigthorsson)

Outgoing game: 2013-09-22 NLe - PSV 4 Ajax 0
(Tim Matavz, Jetro Willems, Oscar Hiljemark, Ji-sung Park)

Third game of the EFCL season, and still no movement in the league table. PSV beat Ajax, just like they did back in September, so everything remains as it is.

-----Game 2-----

Incoming game: 2014-08-23 NLe - Dortmund 0 Leverkusen 2
(Karim Bellarabi, Stefan Kiessling)

Remaining game: 2014-04-26 NLe - Leverkusen 2 Dortmund 2
(Lars Bender, Gonzalo Castro; Oliver Kirch, Marco Reus)

Outgoing game: 2013-12-08 NLe - Dortmund 0 Leverkusen 1
(Son Heung-Min)

Second game of the EFCL season and second game featuring Borussia Dortmund. As they did last year, they won the German Supercup against Bayern and lost to Leverkusen in the league at home. Dortmund remain 8th on 79 points and Bayer Leverkusen joint 17th on 59.

-----Game 1-----

Incoming game: 2014-08-13 NSC - Dortmund 2 Bayern 0
(Henrik Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang)

Remaining game: 2014-05-17 NCu - Bayern 2 Dortmund 0
(Arjen Robben, Thomas Müller)

Outgoing game: 2014-04-12 NLe - Bayern 0 Dortmund 3
(Henrik Mkhitaryan, Marco Reus, Jonas Hoffman)

The 2014-15 season starts with the same match that opened and closed 2013-14: a Bayern v Dortmund fixture. Dortmund win the German Supercup, but this victory comes in to substitute for another Schwarzgelb win from back in February, so everything remains the same, with Bayern at the top of the EFCL on 96 points and Dortmund 8th on 79.
