UEFA Champions League 2013: Dortmund, Chelsea and Napoli all triumphant

Mike Hewitt

Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Napoli all earned important away victories on Tuesday.

Going in to the day all eyes were on London and thankfully, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund did not disappoint. After both sides scored in the first half, Robert Lewandowski proved the hero with a late breakaway that secured three points for BVB.

Elsewhere Chelsea defeated Schalke 04 behind a Fernando Torres brace and Napoli saw off Marseille.

In Tuesday's other marquee match, AC Milan scored early, but couldn't hold off Barcelona, who earned a draw at the San Siro thanks to Lionel Messi's strike midway through the first half.

Here's a recap of all the results from Tuesday's action across Europe:

Group E

Schalke 04 0-3 Chelsea

A brace from the newly-calibrated Fernando Torres helped lead Chelsea to an away victory over Schalke 04. Eden Hazard added a third goal late to secure the points for the Blues.

Porto 0-1 Zenit St Petersburg

Group H

AC Milan 1-1 Barcelona

First-half goals from Robinho and Lionel Messi were all the two teams could manage at the San Siro as several great chances that were left unfinished by both squads.

Celtic 2-1 Ajax Amsterdam

A first-half penalty by James Forrest and a second-half strike from Baram Kayal led Celtic to a home victory over Ajax. Thing got a bit dicey late for Celtic when Nir Biton was sent off with two minutes left and Lasse Schöne pulled Ajax within a goal in stoppage time, but there just wasn't enough time for the comeback.
