SK Brann 0-2 Everton A satisfyingly professional performance by the Toffees. Phil Jagielka was particularly impressive, whilst Yakubu, back in the team after going walkabout, was a constant threat up front. The goals came from Leon Osman, a player with huge potential but who often seems to blow hot and cold, and Victor Anichebe (pictured above), who finished from close range after an excellent pass by Joleon Lescott.
So, job done for Everton, barring a miracle comeback from the limited Norwegian outfit.

Rangers 0-0 Panathinaikos A match that died in the memory as soon as the final whistle was blown. Rangers had a couple of decent chances to score – Nacho Novo wasted the best one – but the Greeks did enough to leave Glasgow with a draw that gives them the upper hand in the tie. Rangers fans must have left their ground feeling like they’d just lost 90 minutes of their lives.
