Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Benfica reached the Champions League knockout stages as the qualification picture became clearer on Tuesday night.

The Germans secured top spot in Group A with a 3-1 win over Villarreal, Inter did likewise in Group B with a draw at Trabzonspor, while Benfica's 2-2 draw with Manchester United meant they too progress to the last 16.

Franck Ribery scored twice for Bayern, either side of a Mario Gomez effort, as Jonathan De Guzman netted Villarreal's consolation.
