  • Dynamo Kyiv directly into round of 16 as Group B winners
  • Late Arsenal equaliser prevents Paris clinching Group A
  • Barcelona, 4-1 victors at Celtic, make it five wins out of five in Group C
  • Manchester City tie up second place behind Spanish side
  • Atlético and PSV level on ten points in Group D going into matchday six
  • Group winners qualify for round of 16, runners-up go into play-offs

Group A
Arsenal 2-2 Paris Saint-Germain (Mavididi 40pen 90+2; Bernede 17, Eboa Eboa 83)
Leaders Paris were heading towards direct qualification as group winners until Stephy Mavididi threw Arsenal a lifeline in added time. With second-placed Basel next hosting the Gunners, in third, on matchday six, the Parisians – last season's runners-up – at least remain assured of a play-off berth.

Highlights: how Paris secured a top-two finish

Ludogorets Razgrad 0-4 Basel (Rashiti 37 53 84pen, Manzambi 61pen)
Basel are two points behind Paris after this Atdhe Rashiti-inspired victory against struggling Ludogorets.

Group B
Beşiktaş 0-3 Benfica (José Gomes 76, Gedson Fernandes 87, Ricardo Araujo 90+1)
Benfica took charge of proceedings after the 74th-minute dismissal of Beşiktaş midfielder Şiyar Kepir for a second bookable offence, scoring three times without reply in the closing stages. There was no doubting the pick of the goals – Gedson Fernandes's half-volley into an unguarded net from just inside his own half.

Napoli 0-2 Dynamo Kyiv (Yanakov 20, Lednev 58)
All but through before kick-off, Dynamo consolidated their six-point cushion over Benfica. Denys Yanakov scored the first from range and Bogdan Lednev doubled the advantage with a direct free-kick. It was not all Dynamo, though: Volodymyr Makhankov saved Antonio Negro's penalty five minutes into the second half, before Marco Milanese rattled a post at 2-0.

Highlights: Mönchengladbach 1-2 Manchester City

Group C
Celtic 1-4 Barcelona
(Aitchison 84; Mboula 8 36, Guillemenot 44, Dani García 55)
Barcelona maintained their 100% record with a comfortable win. The Blaugrana cruised into a three-goal lead by half-time thanks to Jordi Mboula's double and a Jeremy Guillemenot effort. Dani García made it four after the interval, before Jack Aitchison headed a late consolation for Celtic in icy Greenock.

Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-2 Manchester City (Jahn 33; Fernandes 7, Díaz 58)
Brahim Díaz killed off Mönchengladbach's challenge and guaranteed that City will finish second behind Barcelona. The Spanish youth international applied the finish that Javairo Dilrosun's eye-of-the-needle pass deserved, sliding a shot past outrushing keeper Franz Langhoff.

Group D
Atlético Madrid 2-0 PSV Eindhoven (Navarro 29, Toni Moya 90+2)
Third at the start of play, Atlético now lead the way and face a decisive fixture against Bayern, a point further back in third, on matchday six.

Rostov 0-1 Bayern München (Wintzheimer 53)
Manuel Wintzheimer did the rest after Mario Crnički's run and pass as Bayern boosted their qualification chances. For Rostov, this was a fifth successive defeat. Four teams – Viktoria Plzeň (2013/14), Maribor (2014/15), Ludogorets (2014/15) and Astana (2015/16) – have previously lost all six games in a UEFA Youth League group stage.
