Man Utd, Basel, Roma, Juve Qualified into Champions League last 16
Local Editor

Manchester United were one of four clubs to secure qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League in the final round of group games on Tuesday.

Champions' League

United beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 and finish top of Group A, while Swiss champions Basel won 2-0 away at Benfica to join them in going through.

Italian champions Juventus qualified from Group D after a 2-0 victory against Olympiakos in Greece, and Roma are through from Group C thanks to a 1-0 win at home to Qarabag.

Corentin Tolisso struck twice as Bayern Munich avenged September's defeat at Paris Saint-Germain with a 3-1 victory in Bavaria on Tuesday, but the French side finished top of Group B.

With both teams already through to the last 16, Bayern needed to win by four goals to usurp PSG having lost 3-0 at the Parc des Princes.

Bayern raced into a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals by Robert Lewandowski and Tolisso.

Kylian Mbappe calmed the visitors' nerves just after the break before Tolisso scored a superb third for Bayern.

Barcelona rounded off an unbeaten Champions' League group stage as Paco Alcacer's header and a late own goal from Jeremy Mathieu secured a 2-0 win over Sporting Lisbon Tuesday.

Juventus will join the Spanish giants in the last 16 after they too were 2-0 victors away at Olympiakos, relegating Sporting to the consolation of a place in the Europa League in the New Year.

With Barcelona already guaranteed top spot in Group D, Lionel Messi was left on the substitutes' bench for the second consecutive Champions League game as Ernesto Valverde made eight changes from the side that started Saturday's 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo.

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored as Manchester United defeated CSKA Moscow 2-1 to reach the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since 2013-14.

A contentious goal awarded to Vitinho gave CSKA a shock lead on half-time, but Lukaku and Rashford struck twice in two second-half minutes to send Jose Mourinho's side into the last 16 as Group ‘A' winners.

After Saturday's 3-1 win at Arsenal, victory at Old Trafford sustained United's momentum ahead of Sunday's crucial derby showdown with runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.

In avoiding defeat, United established a new club record of 40 home games unbeaten in all competitions, their last loss on home turf being a 2-1 defeat by City in September last year.

With Basel winning 2-0 away to Benfica in the other group game, CSKA had to content themselves with a place in the knockout phase of the Europa League while the Swiss side went through.
