United, Madrid and Paris progress to last 16

Manchester United FC, Real Madrid CF and Paris Saint-Germain sealed progress to the knockout phase, but half the last-16 places will still be up for grabs on matchday six.

Manchester United FC, Real Madrid CF and Paris Saint-Germain are the latest teams to secure their progress to the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

Qualified for last 16: Manchester United FC, Real Madrid CF, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Bayern München (holders), Manchester City FC (plus from other sections: Chelsea FC, Club Atlético de Madrid, FC Barcelona)

Guaranteed at least UEFA Europa League spot: Bayer 04 Leverkusen, FC Shakhtar Donetsk, Juventus, Olympiacos FC, SL Benfica (FC Basel 1893, FC Schalke 04, Arsenal FC, Borussia Dortmund, SSC Napoli, FC Zenit, FC Porto, AFC Ajax, AC Milan)

Can still qualify: Galatasaray AŞ

Can still make UEFA Europa League: FC København, PFC CSKA Moskva, FC Viktoria Plzeň

Eliminated from Europe: Real Sociedad de Fútbol, RSC Anderlecht (FC Steaua Bucureşti, Olympique de Marseille, FK Austria Wien, Celtic FC)

United booked their place in next month's draw in style, cruising to a 5-0 success at Bayer 04 Leverkusen. The Bundesliga side therefore drop down to third, a point behind FC Shakhtar Donetsk, who were 4-0 winners over Real Sociedad de Fútbol. Shakhtar will come top of Group A should they prevail at Old Trafford in a fortnight.

Isco scored for Madrid

Real Madrid merely needed to rubber-stamp their qualification prior to Wednesday's visit of Galatasaray AŞ. The Merengues emerged as 4-1 victors against Roberto Mancini's team and are certain to advance as Group B winners. They will be joined by either Juventus – up to second having triumphed 3-1 against FC København – or Galatasaray.

Also assured of finishing top of the pile are Paris in Group C. Laurent Blanc's charges – who went ahead through a Zlatan Ibrahimović goal on his 100th UEFA Champions League appearance – needed an Edinson Cavani effort in the final minute to beat Olympiacos FC 2-1. Olympiacos will still join them if their matchday six result against RSC Anderlecht is as good as SL Benfica – 3-2 winners at RSC Anderlecht – manage at home to Paris.

In Group D, it is a case of as you were. FC Bayern München and Manchester City FC already had qualification wrapped up and merely reasserted their authority with victories against PFC CSKA Moskva (3-1) and FC Viktoria Plzeň (4-2). Pole position is still up for grabs, with the holders hosting City in two weeks' time.

Groups A–D conclude on Tuesday 10 December, with the remaining four sections set to finish the following day.
