Torres score and Sky miss it
A slap on the wrist for the Sky Sports production team at Chelsea v Shakhtar Donetsk as they gambled on showing a re-run of Fernando Torres's missed fifth-minute chance as play was re-starting.
While viewers were treated to the replay, Yaroslav Rakitskiy's backpass was being charged down by the Spain international for the evening's opening goal.
All the TV subscribers saw upon returning to the live action was the ball nestling in Andriy Pyatov's net.

Oscar's a winner in Europe
Oscar certainly knows how to get himself noticed. All of his four strikes for Chelsea have come in the Champions League.
The Brazilian was on target twice in the 2-2 draw against Juventus and grabbed one in the away defeat by Shakhtar before scoring against the same opposition last night.
He is only one goal behind the competition's leading scorer, Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, in joint second place with Schalke's Klass-Jan Huntelaar.

Wallace secures his freedom
Chelsea are expected to announce the arrival of Wallace from Fluminense next week after pushing through a 5m deal.
The Blues have held 40 per cent of the 18-year-old's economic rights since Deco's free transfer to the Brazilian club in 2010.
Fluminense coach Abel Braga said: 'The kid has an extraordinary future.'
Di Matteo excels in holding role
Roberto Di Matteo has an enviable record since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas but at one stage on Wednesday night he looked at risk of being manager of the first holders to go out in the group stage.
Chelsea's defeat in Ukraine certainly raised eyebrows, but the visitors were never going to be a soft touch.
They arrived at Stamford Bridge boasting a 37-match unbeaten run, stretching back a year in all competitions.
