Hollywood stars in Paris, Fellaini sees red & Bale beats Buffon - The Champions League highlights in pictures

Check out some of the most interesting European action on Tuesday, as Juventus slipped to bottom, Man City thrashed CSKA and Man Utd were held in Spain

Juventus dropping to bottom of their group, Bayern Munich and Manchester City reaching the last 16 and Manchester United being held to a draw by Real Sociedad made for an exciting Champions League matchday.

One of the most interesting sights in Tuesday night's European action was Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio trying to blend in badly as Paris Saint-Germain needed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to salvage a draw at home to Anderlecht.

Elsewhere there was plenty more going on and below Goal rounds up the top snippets of footballing action in pictures...

Group A was a thoroughly goalless affair as Manchester United failed to take their gilt-edged chances and drew 0-0 with Real Sociedad, while Bayer Leverkusen and Shakhtar Donetsk fans suffered through a stalemate.

Group D saw Bayern and Man City qualify at Viktoria Plzen and CSKA Moscow's expense, while Group C sees a three-way tussle between Copenhagen, Galatasaray and Juventus for the second place behind all-but qualified Real Madrid.

Group B remains somewhat in the balance when it comes to who will finish second, but it would take a minor miracle to deny PSG a spot in the last 16 of the continental competition.
