København through, Spurs, Schalke, United on top

FC København made it through to the last 16 while Tottenham Hotspur FC, FC Schalke 04 and Manchester United FC won their groups and SL Benfica earned a UEFA Europa League berth.

Seven teams from these groups already knew they would enter the last-16 draw on 17 December and København's 3-1 win against Panathinaikos FC resolved the remaining issue, leaving them out of reach of FC Rubin Kazan, who in any case lost 2-0 at FC Barcelona. In three other groups, Tottenham Hotspur FC, FC Schalke 04 and Manchester United FC claimed first place while SL Benfica and Rubin will both enter the UEFA Europa League round of 32 after being confirmed in third in their sections. The remaining four groups, with three round of 16 places undecided, conclude on Wednesday.
