Manchester United have beaten Germany's Wolfsburg 3-1 to finish top of their group of the Champions football League.

Injury-plagued United, who had already qualified for the last 16 but were looking to finish top seeds from their group, were put under pressure by the German's but a Michael Owen hat-trick saw them through.

CSKA Moscow finished second in that group with a 2-1 win over Besiktis of Turkey.

Bayern Munich upset Juventus 4-1 to finish second in Group A behind Bordeaux.

Christiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid finished top of their group with a 3-1 win over Marseille and they're joined in the next round by AC Milan who drew 1-all with Zurich.

Chelsea finished their group play unbeaten after a 2-all draw with Nicosia of Greece.
