Three teams are through to the Champions League Last 16

Three teams are through to the Champions League Last 16

Madrid has now won only two of its last five games in all competitions, including a draw at home with Tottenham and a loss in the Spanish league to Girona on Sunday.

Dele Alli scored twice as Spurs made the 11-time champions of Europe look like a bunch of schoolboys.

So where do Wednesday's results rank among the best group-stage results of all time for Premier League teams in Europe's leading club competition?

Of course, Kane is no pauper - he signed a new contract with Spurs past year worth a potential £120,000 a week.

Real Madrid can book their place in the next round if they get all three points against Apoel in their next game, whereas Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to halt Spurs' pursuit of top spot.

Atleti and Qarabag still have an outside chance of qualifying but would need to win their last two fixtures. Bayern Munich are all but guaranteed a place in the next round. A win over the Scottish champions would put them in a stronger position entering the final two games of the group.

If Basel manage to win, they would qualify if Benfica manage to beat CSKA Moscow.

Their Manchester rivals are already through after a ideal opening four games in Group F. They beat Napoli 4-2 in the Stadio San Paolo tonight to make sure of their progression.

Both sides meet in their next match and a win for either team would secure their place in the next round.

Napoli, on the other hand, have a very slim chance of making it through. In the end, the litany of names of players leaving the club reads like a Who's Who of world footballing talent: Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, Tiemoue Bakayoko.. Despite replacing many of their players, Monaco have already dropped out of the title race in France with Paris Saint-Germain - perhaps expectedly - leading them by four points after eleven games.

Liverpool face Maribor again tonight, and if they win as expected, this will put the pressure on both Spartak and Sevilla.

Turkey's Besiktas continued its strong group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw against Monaco that keeps it unbeaten.

Besiktas are arguably this season's surprise outfit, sitting pretty on top of Group G. They're four points clear of Porto in second, and six clear RB Leipzig in third.
