Champions League round-up: Arsenal and Chelsea through to last 16


Roma qualified for the UEFA Champions League last 16 phase for the first time since the 2010/11 season after a goalless draw with Bate Borisov saw them progress behind Group E winners Barcelona.

Barca had already won the group but finished off with a one all draw with Bayer Leverkusen, who enter the Europa League.

It’s mission accomplished for Arsenal.

Olivier Giroud scored all of the Gunners goals in their 3-0 win against direct Group F rivals Olympiacos that qualified the Londoners for the last 16 behind section winners Bayern Munich.

Robert Lewandowski hit twice as Bayern beat Dinamo Zagreb in their final group match.

Chelsea made it three English sides through following a 2-0 win over Porto, who end their Group G campaign in third and will therefore enter the Europa League.

Chelsea join Arsenal and Manchester City in going through.

Dynamo Kyiv took full advantage of Porto’s misery to leapfrog the Portuguese side into second place with a 1-0 victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Kyiv will make their first appearance in the round of 16 for the first time since 1999.

Gent’s dream debut in Europe’s top club competition will extend into the last 16 phase after they beat Group H winners Zenit St Petersburg 2-1 to progress as runners up to their Wednesday night opponents.

Gary Neville’s first match in charge of Valencia ended in a 2-0 defeat by Lyon, but the Spaniards remain in European competition this season, albeit the Europa League.
