Napoli and Copenhagen claimed victories to confirm their places in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 while the head to head for first place in Group D went the way of Real Sociedad thanks to their draw at Inter. UEFA.com rounds up all the action.

Who's in the last 16?

Group A

Man United 0-1 Bayern

Highlights: Man United 0-1 Bayern

Kingsley Coman's clinical close-range finish ended Manchester United's hopes of a last-16 spot as Group A winners Bayern edged a tense encounter at Old Trafford. Coman steered his emphatic strike out of André Onana's reach with 20 minutes remaining after latching on to Harry Kane's clever through ball.

The Red Devils, needing to win to hold any hope of Champions League football after the winter break, began both halves brightly with Luke Shaw forcing a save from Manuel Neuer and captain Bruno Fernandes sending a curling effort wide, but were unable to find the breakthrough and finished the campaign bottom of the section.
Player of the Match: Kingsley Coman (Bayern)

Key stat: Bayern's victory tonight was their ninth successive group-stage win on their travels.

Copenhagen 1-0 Galatasaray

Highlights: Copenhagen 1-0 Galatasaray

With a knockout-stage place guaranteed for the winners, Lukas Lerager settled an intense Group A finale in Copenhagen, slotting in from Elias Achouri's 58th-minute cross to send his side to the round of 16 for the first time since 2010/11.

The hosts survived Lerager's dismissal for a second booking in added time, with goalkeeper Kamil Grabara producing late saves to deny Mauro Icardi and Hakim Ziyech. Galatasaray came third, advancing to the UEFA Europa League knockout round play-offs.
Player of the Match: Rasmus Falk (Copenhagen)

Key stat: Copenhagen are the only Danish club to have finished in the top two in a Champions League group.

Group B

Lens 2-1 Sevilla

Highlights: Lens 2-1 Sevilla

The French side, who only required a draw to finish third and enter the Europa League knockout round play-offs, snatched a dramatic late winner and left Sevilla winless in the group.

Przemysław Frankowski and Sergio Ramos traded second-half penalties before substitute Angelo Fulgini streaked away to slot an added-time second as the visitors committed men forward looking for the winner they needed to overhaul the hosts.
Player of the Match: Przemysław Frankowski (Lens)

Key stat: Lens have lost just one of their last nine UEFA competition matches against Spanish teams (W5 D3).

PSV 1-1 Arsenal

Highlights: PSV 1-1 Arsenal

Group B's top two met with progress and positions already settled, but that did not detract from an entertaining game. Both sides struck the post, through Yorbe Vertessen and Mohamed Elneny, before Eddie Nketiah finished off an incisive move just before the break.

Back came PSV, with Vertessen bending in an equaliser at the start of the second period, and either team might have won it. Ismael Saibari struck the upright and Leandro Trossard was denied at the death as it ended all square.
Player of the Match: Ismael Saibari (PSV)

Key stat: Cédric Soares made his sixth Champions League appearance in this game, nine years after his fifth.

Final standings

Group C

Napoli 2-0 Braga

Highlights: Napoli 2-0 Braga

Victor Osimhen scored on his first Champions League start since October as Napoli rubber-stamped their place in the last 16 behind Group C winners Real Madrid. The Serie A champions took the lead early when Braga defender Serdar Saatçı steered a cross against the crossbar and into his own net, before Osimhen back-heeled a low cross into the net.

Braga had their chances, with captain Ricardo Horta smacking a shot against the post, and they now enter the Europa League knockout round play-offs.
Player of the Match: Natan (Napoli)

Key stat: Braga have not kept a clean sheet in the Champions League since October 2012 (a 2-0 win vs Galatasaray), with the Portuguese outfit conceding 23 goals across their ten matches in the competition since then.

Union Berlin 2-3 Real Madrid

Highlights: Union Berlin 2-3 Real Madrid

Madrid came from a goal down to complete a 100 per cent record in Group C, while also denying Union Berlin the chance to move into the Europa League. Seconds after Luka Modrić's penalty was saved, Kevin Volland's goal put the hosts ahead and into a position to claim third place given Braga's deficit at Napoli.

However, a pair of Joselu headers turned the game around and, after Alex Král's strike looked set to earn the hosts a point, Dani Ceballos settled it late on.
Player of the Match: Joselu (Real Madrid)

Key stat: While Union remain without a win in the Champions League, Madrid are the second team to have registered three perfect group stage campaigns after Bayern München.

Group D

Inter 0-0 Real Sociedad

Highlights: Inter 0-0 Real Sociedad

La Real won a Champions League group for the first time in their history and progressed to the knockout phase, having conceded just two goals in the competition. With both sides already through to the last 16 and level on points, the visitors secured the draw they needed to top Group D in a game of few clear-cut chances.

A goal-line clearance by Hamari Traoré prevented Inter from taking the lead just before half-time, but both goalkeepers were relatively untested with defences standing strong in a match of high quality but little drama.
Player of the Match: Martin Zubimendi (Real Sociedad)

Key stat: Real Sociedad's 12 points are the most they have achieved in a Champions League group stage.

Salzburg 1-3 Benfica

Highlights: Salzburg 1-3 Benfica

Evergreen Ángel Di María inspired Benfica to a dramatic victory at Salzburg to snatch a Europa League knockout play-off round spot. Tasked with winning by two or more goals to finish third, Di María curled in direct from a corner and then teed up Rafa Silva to score before half-time.

Luka Sučić fired home to rekindle Salzburg's hopes before the hour but, after a glut of missed chances and a grandstand finish, Arthur Cabral's 92nd-minute back-heel sparked wild Benfica celebrations.
Player of the Match: Ángel Di María (Benfica)

Key stat: Benfica were without a win in their previous seven Champions League matches. They have still never played eight successive European Cup/Champions League matches without a victory.
