Tottenham 3-1 Real Madrid
FC Porto 3-1 RB Leipzig
Sevilla 2-1 Spartak Moscow

Besiktas 1-1 Monaco
Turkish Giants Besiktas will have to wait before they can guarantee themselves a place in the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time, but remain top of Group G after playing a 1-1 with last season's semi-finalist, Monaco in Istanbul.

Rony Lopes' curler gave the visitors the lead on the stroke of half-time but was cancelled out by Cenk Tosun's penalty after Jorge's foul on Ricardo Quaresma.

FC Porto 3-1 RB Leipzig

Fc Porto delayed Besiktas' qualification to the round of 16 after beating RB Leipzig 3-1 at home to climb into second place in Group G.
Mexican, Hector Herrera gave Porto a half-time lead but Timo Werner drew Leipzig level, but goals from Danilo and Maxi Pereira secured FC Porto their second group win.

Tottenham 3-1 Real Madrid
Dele Alli scored twice as Tottenham battered holders Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley to qualify for the knockout stages.

Alli's sliding poke effort separated the two sides at half-time and the England international made it 2-0 with a shot that took a big deflection off Sergio Ramos.
Star striker Harry Kane then set up Christian Eriksen for Tottenham's third with 25 minutes left.

Cristiano Ronaldo pulled one back for the defending champions, a goal which was rather insignificant in Madrid's first Wembley appearance which ended in defeat.

Spurs lead the Group H table by three points ahead of Zinedine Zidane's side, who remain second and although yet to qualify, they are five points better off than group rivals Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia, who drew 1-1 in Germany.

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Apoel Nicosia

Mickael Pote equalised for APOEL at the beginning of the second half after Dortmund had led at the break through Raphael Guerreiro.

Napoli 2-4 Manchester City

Manchester City have also qualified for the knockout stages as Sergio Aguero set a new club goalscoring record in a 4-2 win away to SSC Napoli.

Nicolas Otamendi's header cancelled out Lorenzo Insigne's opener before John Stones' first-half header hit the crossbar.

Stones then conceded a penalty for his foul on Raul Albiol and Jorginho duly converted, but City struck back again to go 3-2 up through Aguero, whose 178th goal for the club broke Eric Brooks' 78-year record.

Raheem Sterling added City's fourth in stoppage time as Pep Guardiola's side extended their 100 per cent record in Group F to four matches.

Shakhtar Donetsk 3-1 Feyenoord

Shakhtar Donetsk are all but guaranteed second place and progress to the last 16 after a 3-1 home win against bottom Dutch side Feyenoord.

The Dutch side took an early lead through Nicolai Jorgensen's header, but Shakhtar hitback through Facundo Ferreyra and two goals from Marlos.

Liverpool 3-0 FC Maribor

English club Liverpool completed a memorable night for Premier League clubs by beating Maribor3-0 at Anfield to go top of Group E.

Roberto Firmino's first-half deflected header was pushed on to the crossbar by Maribor goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic, but Mohamed Salah made the breakthrough for Liverpool early in the second period.
Roberto Firmino dummied Maribor defender Aleksandar Rajcevic's in the box with an exquisite footwork which resulted in a foul.

The resulting Penalty by James Milner's was then brilliantly saved by Handanovic, before Emre Can fired home Liverpool's second and Daniel Sturridge added a late third.

Sevilla 2-1 Spartak Moscow

Spartak Moscow slipped to third after going down 2-1 atSevilla, who are a point behind Liverpool with two games to play. Goals from Clement Lenglet and Ever Banega put the Spaniards 2-0 up just before the hour mark before substitute Ze Luis pulled one back for Spartak.
