They enhanced their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League last night with a 3-0 win over Villarreal in Spain.

Also: The British agent convicted of corruption in partnership with three Pakistan cricketers claimed yesterday that it was Salman Butt, the team's former captain, and another unnamed player who first approached him to propose spot-fixing, that the Pakistan team was surrounded by those looking to corrupt players and that there may have been more than one match-fixing ring involved around the team.
