Lille, which suspended coach Marcelo Bielsa last month following poor results, has climbed out of the relegation zone with two straight wins.

In his first season in charge, Ernesto Valverde has kept Barcelona undefeated in all competitions, including the first 14 rounds of La Liga.

In fact, Coutinho bagged himself a hat-trick, with Mane scoring a brace. United still sit eight points behind local rivals Manchester City in the Premier League, but could cut the gap in a crucial derby at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester City had already claimed top spot in this group, having won all five of their group games heading into their last game.

At times last night, it was almost as if Celtic had entered the Europa League early.

The Ukrainian champions scored first-half goals through Bernard and Ismaily.

End of an era for Atletico? But the Catalan club was held at second-place Valencia to 1-1 before a surprisingly drawing with Celta Vigo 2-2 at Camp Nou last weekend.

Italian side Napoli took third spot after a 2-1 defeat at rock bottom Feyenoord. You have to play a lot of games.

However, in Rome, Roma got the job done as they recorded a lone goal win over Qarabag.

Tournament favourites Paris Saint-Germain are showing signs of fallibility, after the French outfit suffered their second loss in just four days as they were beaten 3-1 at Bayern Munich. The full force of the exhilarating attacking options provided by Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah was clear when Liverpool signed off from the group stage with a 7-0 thumping of Spartak Moscow. Shaw made his opportunity count with some explosive running down the flank and solid defensive contributions.

"We will not be happy when we see who we face in the next round, but we will ready".

Real Madrid progressed in second place after beating Dortmund 3-2 at the Bernabeu Stadium.

The Dutch international does not get many chances to shine between the posts for Barcelona, so when they arrive he needs to make them count.

CSKA Moscow will continue in the UEFA Europa League while Benfica, who did not win a single point, are eliminated.
