Our focus has turned away from the Etihad Stadium, where the game has petered out somewhat, and to the Parc des Princes where PSG need to score twice to deny Arsenal a place at the top of Group A. Less than eight minute left for Umai Emery's team to produce what is required.

Goal: Benfica 0-2 Napoli (Dries Mertens)

Goal: Basel 1-4 Arsenal (Seydou Doumbia)

Nice consolation goal for the hosts whose spins past Koscielny, exchanges passes and holds off Holding before neatly poking beyond Ospina. Lovely finish.

It is raining goals in the Champions League but another crucial one for Arsenal in Paris where Ludogorets have retaken the lead over Paris Saint-Germain. The Bulgarian champions had been pegged back by Wanderson has made it 2-1 and there is only 16 minutes remaining. The hosts need to score twice in that time.

Goal: Barcelona 2-0 Borussia Monchengladbach (Arda Turan)

Goal: Basel 0-3 Arsenal (Lucas Perez)

Perfect start for Arsenal at the beginning of the second half. Gibbs plays a fierce ball which bounces the way of Perez who takes one touch and completes is hat-trick with a fine finish into the corner.

Underway across Europe in the Champions League. Arsenal need to hold what they have to finish top of Group A. PSG will have other ideas.

Going according to plan for Arsenal. They lead comfortably through two Lucas Perez goals, while PSG are trailing at home to Ludogorets, a result which sees the Gunners currently top of Group A.

Meanwhile, in the dead rubber at the Etihad Stadium two City youngster have exchanged goals. Patrick Roberts, on loan from Pep Guardiola's men, put Celtic ahead before Kelechi Iheanacho levelled three minutes later.

Half time: Manchester City 1-1 Celtic

Half time: Basel 0-2 Arsenal

How have Celtic not got a penalty? Roberts drives inside Clichy and is clearly held back by the City full-back as he enters the penalty area. The assistant referee by the by-line doesn't move as Lustig is given a booking for his protests.

Good save from David Ospina to keep Arsenal two-up in Swtizerland. Steffen cuts inside and forces the Columbian to dive full stretch to keep out the initial effort and then grab the ball at the second attempt as Janko closed in on the rebound.

Bit of an anticlimactic end to Group B it appears with Besiktas losing 3-0 in Kiev and thus sending Napoli and Benfica safely through. Their meeting tonight will decide who finishes top.

Goal: Dynamo 3-0 Besiktas (Vitaliy Buyalskyi)

Goal: Dynamo Kiev 2-0 Beskitas (Andriy Yarmolenko)

Lucas Perez celebrated putting Arsenal in control at Basel.

Goal: Bayern Munich 1-0 Atletico Madrid (Robert Lewandowski)

City and Celtic served up a six-goal thriller in their first group match and they're threatening to produce another classic tonight. Chances for both sides in the opening quarter and you have to wonder how it is only 1-1.

Goal: Basel 0-2 Arsenal (Lucas Perez)

Arsene Wenger's side looks home and dry and they're heading top of Group A. They double their lead as Vaclik parrys Gibbs' shot and Perez tucks into the empty net once again.

The news gets better for Arsenal meanwhile, with Ludogorets leading PSG in Paris. The Bulgarian side are on course for the Europa League as things stand.

Goal: PSG 0-1 Ludogorets (Virgil Misidjan)

Goal: Barcelona 1-0 Borussia Monchengladbach (Lionel Messi)

Goal: Dynamo Kiev 1-0 Besiktas (Ivan Besedin)

Goal: Basel 0-1 Arsenal (Lucas Perez)

The Gunners hit the front and as things stand will finish top of the group. Sanchez lofts a pass over the top to find Gibbs whose cross is misjudged and Perez tucks into the empty net.

Goal: Manchester City 1-1 Celtic (Kelechi Iheanacho)

Celtic's lead last just three minutes as Nolito finds Iheanacho, who starts his spell as the deputy to the suspended Sergio Aguero by tucking home from 15 yards.

Goal: Manchester City 0-1 Celtic (Patrick Roberts)

Willy Cabellero has made a horrid start for Manchester City and he contributes to the opening goal. A dreadful clearance catches out the City back-four and Roberts takes advantage jinking inside and scoring against his parent club. What a story.

Like there has been across football this week, a minute's silence is being held before each of tonight's Champions League matches in memory of those who lost their lives in the Columbian plane crash last week which killed members of the Chapecoense football team.

Teams in the tunnel in what sounds like a baltic Switzerland. Arsenal need a win to finish top, Basel need to prevail to reach the Europa League. Plenty at stake.

So will it be Atletico, Barcelona, Dortmund or Juventus, OR Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Sevilla and Bayer Leverkusen for Arsenal? Less than 10 minutes until we discover their fate.

My semi-warm office in east London never felt more cosey.

Has Pep Guardiola missed a bit of a trick tonight? He has named a Manchester City team full of youngsters, but with the game having come after the harrowing 3-1 loss to Chelsea would the Spanish boss have been better off naming a stronger side to help rebuild a bit of confidence? Celtic meanwhile are full strength. I'll give the two-time European Cup winner the benefit of the doubt, for now.

When you look at Arsenal's last 16 record in the Champions League you can understand why they might want to finish top of their group tonight. Six seasons in a row the north Londoners have been dumped out at the first knock-out stage, and though they did once progress as group winners almost all of those exits came after playing second fiddle in the preliminary stage. Can they buck that trend tonight?

Big night at the Etihad Stadium for one 19-year-old.

Let's have a look at one of the other groups which is coming to a conclusion tonight. In Group B, three teams remain in contention to qualify for the last 16.

Napoli are in the box seat and can progress with a draw at Benfica. Besiktas will qualify if they win at already-eliminated Dynamo Kiev, and can top the group if the other game is drawn.

A draw for the Turks won't be good enough to progress unless Napoli lose to Benfica, which will be enough to see them qualify. If Kiev beat Besiktas then Napoli and Benfica are assured of qualifying.

More on that story I brought you earlier, in which Matt le Tissier has alleged he was subject to sexual abuse while at Southampton. Full story can be found here.

Basel team is in, which includes Granit's brother Taulent.

Manchester City are treating this like the meaningless game that it is and have started with a host of youngsters. In come youngsters Pablo Moffeo and Tosin Adarabioyo. Willy Caballero, Pablo Zabaleta and Kelechi Iheanacho also start.

Changes galore for Arsenal then including stars for Rob Holding and Lucas Perez, while Granit Xhaka starts in the centre alongside Aaron Ramsey. David Ospina is in goal but both Mesut Ozil and Alex Sanchez are named in the starting XI.

Meanwhile, the teams are in at the Etihad Stadium where Manchester city host Celtic.

Arsenal team confirmed to face Basel.

Some breaking news away from the Champions League. Former England and Southampton forward Matt Le Tissier has become the latest figure from within football to allege he was sexually abused. More on this story to follow.

Worth mentioning that tonight's game is no dead rubber for FC Basel, who need to better Ludogorets' result against PSG to make it into the Europa League in this place. Currently, the Bulgarian champions are on course to drop into the continent's second tier club competition.

Basel vs Arsenal is firmly our main game tonight from Switzerland, so before we get the teams through let's look at how both teams will likely line up.

Alexis Sanchez is likely to be rested by Arsene Wenger with Arsenal already through to the last 16. Lucas Perez could deputise while both Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny could start on their respective returns to Basel.

Another year, and once again Arsenal are facing finishing second in their Champions League group and the prospect of a date with one of Europe's heavyweights in the knock-out stage. The 2-2 draw with PSG a fortnight ago means the Gunners face finishing a group runners-up again, and being unseeded for the knock-out stage draw next week.

Unless they can better PSG's result tonight, as they face Basel while the French champions travel to Ludogorets, they will qualify in second place from Group A and be pitted with one of the continent's giants. Elsewhere, Man City host Celtic in a clash which means little more than a battle of two British titans, while there is an almighty tussle for qualification in Group B.
