Arsenal beat Basel 2-0, Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 at Ludogorets Razgrad, Besiktas drew 1-1 with Dynamo Kiev and Napoli defeated Benfica 4-2.
Alexis Sanchez twice set up Theo Walcott for Arsenal to easily see off Basel. Arsenal share top spot with PSG who had a scare en route to winning in Bulgaria.
Natanael put Ludogorets, playing in Sofia rather than their home ground, in front but Blaise Matuidi equalized before the break. An Edinson Cavani double early in the second half, either side of a missed penalty from Cosmin Moti, settled the tie.

And in Group B Napoli won for a second time as a Dries Mertens double and goals from Marek Hamsik and Arkadiusz Milik led them over Benfica. The Portuguese got consolations through Goncalo Guedes and Eduardo Salvio.
Besiktas are second after another draw having led Kiev through a wonderful Ricardo Quaresma free kick. However, Viktor Tsigankov converted a set piece to earn the Ukrainians a first point.
