UCL: Madrid romp to victory, Man City & Spurs snatch wins as Liverpool left frustrated by Sevilla

Real Madrid have booked their spot in the last-16 stage of the Champions League courtesy of a thumping 6-0 win away to APOEL on Tuesday night.

Los Blancos entered the match knowing that a victory would guarantee their place in the knockout round – eliminating Borussia Dortmund in the process – and the European champions ran riot on the night.

Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo have only managed two league goals between them this season, but both scored braces during the six-goal thrashing in Nicosia.

Liverpool let a 3-0 lead slip through their fingers as Sevilla snatched a 3-3 draw at the death to delay Champions League qualification for the last 16.

The phrase ‘a game of two halves’ certainly applied at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium on Tuesday night as the Reds were rampant in the first half, storming to a 3-0 lead inside half an hour, but their Spanish opponents came out fighting in the second and pulled off a comeback.

Two goals from Roberto Firmino and another from Sadio Mane seemed to put Liverpool in cruise control, but a brace from Wissam Ben Yedder and an injury-time equaliser from Guido Pizarro crushed the visiting side.

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind to earn a 2-1 victory over
Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, a result which secures top spot in Group H.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had given Dortmund a half-time lead, but goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min ensured that the Premier League side will finish above defending champions Real Madrid with a game to spare.

Manchester City claimed top spot in Champions League Group F with a late 1-0 victory over Dutch champions Feyenoord at the Etihad Stadium.
