UEFA Champions League

December 6, 2006
Barcelona celebrated their 400th European match by beating Werder Bremen 2-0 to reach the knockout phase of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Ronaldinho (in pic) opened the scoring in the 13th minute, cleverly drilling a free kick under the leaping Bremen wall and beyond keeper Tim Wiese, and Eidur Gudjohnsen got the second in the 19th when he tucked away a Ludovic Giuly cross.

The Iceland striker then hit a post after a brilliant slalom through the Werder defence, Giuly missing an open goal from the rebound.

The Germans eventually settled to exert some pressure, knowing a draw would be enough to send them through in Barca's place, but though they dominated the second half Werder failed to create many clear chances.
