Chelsea's hopes of clinching top spot in their group are still alive after a 4-0 thrashing of Maccabi Tel-Aviv. Porto slipped to a surprise home defeat to Dynamo Kiev, meaning there will be a straight fight between the Blues and the Portuguese giants when they meet in their final group game in two weeks.

Tonight's results:

Arsenal 3-0 Dinamo Moscow
Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-4 Chelsea
Barcelona 6-1 Roma
Bayern Munich 4-0 Olympiakos
Porto 0-2 Dynamo Kiev
Lyon 1-1 Gent

Chelsea almost have a fifth at the death but Rajkovic denies Costa twice. The Maccabi goalkeeper is alive again to bat away a loose ball hanging in the air but Loic Remy crashes into him as he clears. It's an ugly collision at pace and both men are feeling it. That will be the last action of the game.

Having come onto replace John Terry, Kurt Zouma does his best impression of the Blues skipper, rising above his marker in the six yard area despite having his shirt pulled to nod home his side's fourth from Willian's corner.

Goal! Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-4 Chelsea (Kurt Zouma, 90+)

Arsenal are still in the Champions League thanks to a comfortable victory over Dinamo Zagreb and Bayern Munich handing a thrashing to Olympiakos at the Allianz Arena. A win by a two goal margin in Greece in two weeks time will see the Gunners qualify as group runners up.

FULL TIME: Arsenal 3-0 Dinamo Moscow

Oh what a goal that would have been. Sanchez advances, holds the ball up and dinks a delicate ball over the Dinamo defence for Ozil whose made an excellent run through the centre. He can't bring the ball down and instead opts to head it on with the back of his noggin, but knocks it the wrong side of the post.

Baba Rahman has curled in a couple of cracking crosses this evening that his teammates haven't got on the end of, but this one has got the finish it deserves. The full back's cross from the right is met by Oscar inside the six yard area, who plants the ball into the back of the net.

Goal! Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-3 Chelsea (Oscar, 78)

Messi passes up the chance to seal his hat-trick from the penalty spot, handing the ball to Neymar. He misses, but Adriano is on the scene to convert the rebound.

Goal! Barcelona 6-0 Roma (Adriano)

Chelsea have doubled their lead and again they have the set-piece brilliance of Willian to thank. He's curled another beauty up and over the wall into the left hand corner of the net.

Goal! Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-2 Chelsea (Willian, 76)

Goal! Bayern Munich 4-0 Olympiakos (Kinglsey Coman, 70)

Over in Israel, John Terry have been stretchered off for Chelsea after falling awkwardly on his hip. Kurt Zouma is on to replace him.

Cech's first save of the night comes after Koscielny hammers a clearance off Flamini from a couple of yards out, forcing the Gunners' goalkeeper to spring across to his near post and bat the deflection away.

Sanchez gets the third for Arsenal but all the credit to Joel Campbell. The Costa Rican cuts in from the right and plays a beautiful reverse ball into between the Dinamo centre halves for Sanchez to run onto. The Chile international may have been slightly offside but the flag stayed down, allowing him to shift the ball past Eduardo in goal and score his second of the night.

Ahead of another big weekend of boxing, the game at the Emirates is very much a no contest with Arsenal having struck the knock-out blow some time ago. Attention has already turned to Olympiakos in two weeks time where Wenger's side need a two-goal win to go through. Dynamo are just playing damage limitation right now.

Arsenal close again to a third. Monreal is booked after giving away a free kick on the edge of his box but Dinamo make a mess of it and Campbell springs forward at pace down the right. He drives up field before playing the ball into Sanchez who returns the ball for the Costa Rican who has continued his run into the box. Under pressure from a defender, Campbell manages to get a cross in but Antolic deflects it away.

Oh, it's five now for Barcelona. Those three combine again, with Messi converting a rebound after seeing his initial shot saved.

Goal! Barcelona 5-0 Roma (Lionel Messi, 60)

Dinamo have enjoyed a decent spell of possession in this half but Arsenal are in control and look dangerous every time they come forward. This time Giroud plays a neat one two with Alexis, receiving the ball back just inside the box but his shot on goal is deflected just wide.

Barcelona take the lead ahead of Bayern Munich in the race to register the biggest thrashing of the night. They lead 4-0 against Roma now, with Suarez, Neymar and Messi combining again before the latter lays on a simple tap in for Pique. Bayern Munich meanwhile are still only winning 3-0. Losers.

Goal! Barcelona 4-0 Roma (Gerard Pique, 56)

Arsenal almost make it four within minutes of the second half as Giroud heads towards goal from a corner but Eduardo shows good reflexes again to spring across goal and save.

And we are back underway across Europe for the second half in our six fixtures.

Half time scores:

Arsenal 2-0 Dinamo Moscow
Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-1 Chelsea
Barcelona 3-0 Roma
Bayern Munich 3-0 Olympiakos
Porto 0-1 Dynmao Kiev
Lyon 1-1 Gent

Roma are done. Barcelona are at the mesmerising best tonight and they have three before half time with Suarez lifting a sublime volley into the back of the net after pouncing on a clearance.

Goal! Barcelona 3-0 Olympiakos (Luis Suarez, 45)

HALF TIME: Arsenal 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Chelsea now lead 10 men after former Blues defender Ben Haim saw red, lashing out at Diego Costa with a wild kick.

RED CARD - Ben Haim (Maccabi Tel-Aviv)

Arsenal are nearly rewarded with a third after a sublime, sweeping move involving Ozil, Sanchez and Monreal but Eduardo makes another good stop to deny the Germany international a second.

Ozil comes within an inch of making it three. The German rides two challenges on the edge of the box and shimmies past a third inside the box before firing a vicious effort across goal, but Dinamo goalkeeper Eduardo somehow manages to push it wide.

Chelsea's night just got a bit better; Dynamo Kiev have taken the lead away to Porto. As it stands, Chelsea top Group G.

Goal! Porto 0-1 Dynamo Kiev (Andriy Yarmolenko, 36)

Job done from Bayern Munich, but can Arsenal keep up their end of the deal? So far so good for the home side and the opening goal came from the most cohesive move of the game. Sanchez has been lively so far but he finally discovered a final ball and Ozil, easily the best player on the park, converts the simplest of headers. Dynamo have been living in their shell for long periods but they were cut apart there.

Arsenal have a second! Dinamo try to play their way out of trouble but Monreal is alive to intercept a pass in the opposition's area, sliding the ball across to Sanchez who drills one home into the far corner.

Goal! Arsenal 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb (Alexis Sanchez, 32)

Arsenal strike on the counter attack after a promising Dinamo attack breaks down. That's not how it is supposed to work, is it? Sanchez cuts in from the right and lifts a wonderful cross into the six yard area. Giroud makes a wonderful run across the box to drag a defender out of the way, leaving Ozil free to meet the ball with a stooping header and find the back of the net.

Goal! Arsenal 1-0 Dinamo Zagreb (Mesut Ozil, 28)

The standard of opposition, ticket prices, the club's plight in the competition, additional security checks or the cold weather; either way Arsenal fans have stayed away in their swathes tonight, with huge gaps around the Emirates. Douglas Costa is the toast of north London at the moment with an early goal for Bayern but otherwise it has been a low key start from the hosts. Dynamo adventurous early on meanwhile. I doubt they would mind a Europa League place.

Chelsea have their lead in Israel with Gary Cahill meeting Willian's cross with a towering header. That doesn't put it in, mind, Rajkovic makes a tremendous block but his save comes back off the post and back to Cahill who gets it across the line/

Goal! Maccabi Tel-Aviv 0-1 Chelsea (Gary Cahill, 22)

It's already getting ugly at the Allianz Arena. Bayern have made it 3-0 inside 20 minutes through Thomas Muller. Barcelona are trying to keep pace with them too, adding their second in as many minutes against Roma. It's a typically wonderful goal, too, with intricate, one-touch passing leaving the Serie A side in a daze before Messi gets the finishing touch.

Goal! Bayern Munich 3-0 Olympiakos (Thomas Muller, 20)

Goal! Barcelona 2-0 Roma (Lionel Messi, 18)

Bayern Munich are cruising already with Robert Lewandowski now in on the act. Barcelona meanwhile have opened the scoring against Roma with Luis Suarez tucking in from close range after being unselfishly teed up by Dani Alves.

Goal! Barcelona 1-0 Roma (Luis Suarez, 16)

Goal! Bayern Munich 2-0 Olympiakos (Robert Lewandowski, 16)

Diego Costa spreads the ball wide for his Chelsea teammate Rahman who swings a sublime cross into the six yard area. It's probably the most inviting cross you will see all evening but there is no one there to get on the end of it.

Campbell plays a slick one two with Ozil coming in from the right and moves the ball wide for Alexis. His first touch lets him down however and ends up snatching at a shot at the second time of asking. Promising stuff though from the Gunners.

Good news from Germany for Arsenal, Bayern Munich have taken the lead at the Allianz Arena after just eight minutes with Douglas Costa getting the goal.

Arsenal are starting to come alive now with Joel Campbell getting at his full back, beating him towards the byline before driving a cross into Cazorla. The Spaniard pulls back a boot and slams his effort well over the bar. Poor effort from him.

Maccabi Tel-Aviv come within a whisker of inflicting more misery on Chelsea. Ben Haim does well down the right, evading Baba Rahman and swinging an inviting ball into he six yard area to find Peretz who hammers a header on goal, but fails to work Begovic. Should have done better.

It is bitterly cold at the Arsenal tonight - hat, gloves and scarf season has begun - but will the home side be frozen out of the Champions League tonight? Attention will be on events here and in Bavaria.

Dinamo have started the better of the two sides at the Emirates. They are not doing much with the ball, mind, stroking it around in front of the Arsenal defence, but they retain possession well.

And Dinamo get the ball rolling at the Emirates.

There is a spot on the Dinamo bench this evening for former Manchester United striker Angelo Henriquez.

Arsenal need Bayern Munich to do them a favour tonight and beat Olympiakos. Picking a team like this isn't a bad way to start.

We will be bringing you live updates from six matches this evening. They are:

Arsenal vs Dinamo Moscow
Maccabi Tel-Aviv vs Chelsea
Barcelona vs Roma
Bayern Munich vs Olympiakos
Porto vs Dynmao Kiev
Lyon vs Gent

Arsene Wenger suggested in his pre-match press conference on Monday he had pondered using Calum Chambers in a defensive midfield role but opted against taking any chances this evening. Speaking ahead of kick off, he said:

I've put players who know their positions in those positions and I didn't want to be too adventurous with Aaron Ramsey after 31 days out.

It's fairly simple for Arsenal this evening; a win for both them and Olympiakos will keep them in the Champions League. Should the Greek giants snatch something away to Bayern Munich or if the Gunners falter again and their campaign ends tonight.

There has already been two matches from tonight's round of Champions League fixtures. Zenit St Petersburg have made it five wins from five after a 2-0 win over Valencia. The Spanish side can now only hope for a runners up finish, but even that is not a certainty.

Elsewhere, BATE Borisov have held Bayer Leverkusen to a 1-1 draw.

After being battered, bruised and beaten by Bayern a fortnight ago, Arsenal need favours to retain interest in the Champions League. Victory tonight may not be enough to keep the Gunners in the competition and it could yet inadvertently book them a place in the Eurpopa - something Arsene Wenger is adamant would be good for the club. Other than qualifying, how the hosts cope without Francis Coquelin at the base of the midfield - though Dynamo may not be the best barometer - is key after the Frenchman was ruled out for three months earlier this week.

BREAKING: Mathieu Flamini comes into midfield to replace the injured Francis Coquelin while there is another start for Joel Campbell on the right of attack.

Arsenal team to face Dinamo Zagreb: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Flamini, Cazorla, Campbell, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Debuchy, Gabriel, Gibbs, Chambers, Ramsey, Reine-Adelaide

BREAKING: Baba Rahman replaces Kenedy at left back for the Blues while Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic both start in central midfield.

Chelsea team to face Maccabi Tel-Aviv: Begovic; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry (c), Baba Rahman; Fabregas, Matic; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa

Subs: Ivanovic, Zouma, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Remy

TEAM NEWS – Arsenal

The Gunners could welcome back Aaron Ramsey this evening. The Wales international has not played since the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in October but took part in training on Monday. That's about as good as it gets at the minute; Arsene Wenger is still without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott while Francis Coquelin has been ruled out for two months after suffering that knee injury against West Brom. Wenger has suggested Mathieu Flamini or Calum Chambers could come in to fill the void left by the Frenchman.

I will give myself time. We have players who play in this position, like Flamini. We have players like Chambers [too], because he has been educated as a central midfielder. Sometimes this is a good opportunity for other players to turn up and show they can do the job,

TEAM NEWS – Chelsea

The Blues travelled to Israel with a relatively clean bill of health. Radamel Falcao and Thibaut Courtois are their only absences with both men still on course to return from injury in September.

Tomorrow is simple: if we lose, we are in trouble. If we lose we depend on other results," he said. "If we get a draw we can qualify in the last game, but we cannot be first. If we win, maybe we qualify tomorrow and we have a big chance to finish first. We need points tomorrow. We are playing to qualify so the game is more important for us.

With just two games of the Champions League group stage remaining, Arsenal are running out of time to avoid the fate suffered by other English sides in the past. Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have failed to qualify for knock out phases in recent years and instead entered the Europa League, an indignity the Gunners have so far avoided. But in order to keep that up, Arsene Wenger's side must win at home to Dinamo Zagreb and hope Olympiakos don't salvage something against Bayern Munich this evening. That will be enough to keep their hopes alive for another couple of weeks.

Arsenal fell to a 2-1 defeat in their reverse fixture against the Croatian champions back in September, however, and with the effects of their latest spate of injuries still being felt, they can afford to take nothing for granted.

A narrow 1-0 victory for Chelsea last time out against Dynamo Kiev gave their own Europa League a timely boost. Jose Mourinho's side now sit second in Group G, three points behind leaders Porto. Tonight they take on Maccabi Tel Aviv, who have lost all four of their Champions League games so far, conceding 10 goals in the process including four at Stamford Bridge. A win this evening for Chelsea will likely pave the way for a straight shoot out with Porto in their final group game at home with Mourinho's former club on 9 December, with the winner of that match qualifying as group winners.

Elsewhere tonight, Barcelona, fresh off that 4-0 hammering of arch rivals Real Madrid in Saturday's El Clasico, host Roma, who themselves are in danger of missing out on qualification of the knock out stages.
