Liverpool have qualified for the last-16 after surviving a test in Salzburg to win 2-0 - a result which sees the title holders through as Group E winners.

Elsewhere Ajax crashed out after a shock 1-0 home loss to Valencia, Barcelona beat Inter Milan 2-1 and Chelsea also progessed with a 2-1 win against Lille.

Meanwhile the Serie A club sealed their place in the knockout round but the Italian coach has been sacked just hours after leading the Partenopei to their biggest Champions League victory.

A statement from the club said: "Napoli has decided to rescind Carlo Ancelotti's position as first-team coach. Their relationship of friendship, esteem and mutual respect between the company, its president Aurelio De Laurentiis and Carlo Ancelotti, remains intact."
