Defending champions Real Madrid failed to win their group for the first time in four years as Borussia Dortmund to held them to a 2-2 draw, though both teams advanced.

Europa League champions Sevilla also progressed following a goalless draw with Lyon.

Premier League side Tottenham will play in the second-tier Europa League next season after finishing third in their group following a 3-1 win over CSKA Moscow.

Porto eased into the knockout stages with a 5-0 win over Leicester City's hapless second-string side, who suffered the heaviest defeat ever by an English side in the European Cup.

No English team had suffered such a huge loss in the 61-year annals of Europe's premier club competition and it was the worst reverse for any Premier League club in continental combat since Everton's 5-0 defeat, also in Portugal, at Benfica in the 2009-10 Europa League.

The winner of each group will be drawn against a runner-up, but teams cannot face a side from their own nation in the last 16, or a club they met in the group stage.

Group winners will play the first leg away and the second leg at home.
