Benfica wrapped up top spot in Group C of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Romanian minnows Otelul Galati at the Stadium of Light. Oscar Cardozo's seventh-minute goal was enough to seal the Portuguese side's victory.

Napoli took until the 65th minute to score their opener against Villarreal, who finished without a point from their six group games. Gokhan Inler scored the first and Marek Hamsik made it 2-0 late on.

In a remarkable turnaround in Group D, Lyon joined group winners Real Madrid in the knockout stages after Bafetimbi Gomis scored four goals in a 7-1 win over Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia.
