Man United, City held; Inter stunned

Ondrej Celustka fired home a famous 76th-minute winner as Trabzonspor stunned Inter Milan in their Champions League Group B opener at the San Siro.

The Turkish side are only in the tournament because Fenerbahce were kicked out due to match-rigging allegations and they seized their chance when Celustka swept home the rebound after Halil Altintop's shot rebounded off the woodwork.

The 1-0 defeat was a stunning setback for the 2009 champions who had dominated much of the evening with Mauro Zarate having the pick of the chances before they paid for their failure in front of goal.

In another dramatic Group B clash, Spartak Moscow hit back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 withLille in France. Seydou Doumbia scored twice - his second in injury time - to cancel out strikes from Moussa Sow and Benoit Pedretti.
