Baku-APA. Wednesday round-up: Cristiano Ronaldo reached another two milestones, Astana earned their first point and Manchester United and Manchester City both got off the mark, APA reports quoting uefa.com.

Group A

Shakhtar Donetsk 0-3 Paris Saint-Germain

Laurent Blanc's side, unbeaten in all competitions this season, made it two wins out of two in Group A. Serge Aurier – on his competition debut – and David Luiz struck in the first half before a late own goal added gloss to the scoreline.

Malmö 0-2 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo racked up his 500th senior career goal in the first half and then drew level with Raúl González on 323 for the Merengues alone, equalling the club's all-time scoring record.

Group B

Manchester United 2-1 Wolfsburg

Though Daniel Caligiuri's fourth-minute goal put United – beaten by PSV Eindhoven on matchday one – on the back foot, the Premier League leaders railled and prevailed through Juan Mata's penalty and Chris Smalling's close-range finish.

CSKA Moskva 3-2 PSV Eindhoven

Seydou Doumbia scored two inside the first 36 minutes – after Ahmed Musa's early opener – but then missed a penalty. He was nearly made to pay, PSV pulling two back through Maxime Lestienne yet still falling short.

Group C

Astana 2-2 Galatasaray

Astana, hosting Kazakhstan's first ever group stage game, trailed twice but ultimately picked up a point courtesy of two own goals in the closing 14 minutes.

Atlético Madrid 1-2 Benfica

The visitors recorded their first victory against Spanish opposition since 1982 – despite going behind midway through the first half. Nicolás Gaitán and Gonçalo Guedes were on the mark for the Eagles.

Group D

Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-2 Manchester City

Manuel Pellegrini's side were yet another team to come from behind and collect three points. They left it a little later than most, Sergio Agüero keeping his nerve from the penalty spot in the last minute of normal time.

Juventus 2-0 Sevilla

Last season's runners-up continue to struggle in Serie A but have no such problems in Europe. Álvaro Morata netted for the fifth straight UEFA Champions League match and substitute Simone Zaza got in on the act late on.
