Spurs have sailed through what appeared to be a group of death

FBL-EUR-C1-TOTTENHAM-REAL MADRID

LIVERPOOL were one of four clubs to secure qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League in the final round of group games on Wednesday.

The Reds only needed a point to qualify and finish top of the group but a team featuring six changes beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 at Old Trafford to advance in the tournament with five wins from six games.

Needing only to avoid defeat against Spartak Moscow at Anfield to reach the last 16 for the first time in nine years, Liverpool hammered the Russian champions 7-0 to win Group E and send out a statement of intent to future opponents.

Since the Champions League reverted back to a one group stage format for the 2003-04 season, the Premier League has been allocated four Champions League places, but only on six occasions in the previous 14 years has a full complement of English teams succeeded in qualifying for the next stage.

But Dortmund, like Atletico and Napoli, was terrible in the Champions League play, only registering two points via draws with APOEL.

In the round of 16, teams can not be drawn against sides who they faced in the group stages. Everton, though, failed to reach the group stages, losing in controversial fashion to Villarreal in the third qualifying phase.

Serie A high-flyers Napoli dropped into the Europa League as Shakhtar Donetsk's victory over Premier League leaders Manchester City rendered their 2-1 loss at Feyenoord effectively a dead rubber.

The other group winners were PSG, Barcelona, Besiktas and Roma while Sevilla, Basel, Juventus, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk also finished as runners up.

Round of 16 first-leg games are played from February 13-21.
