Atletico Madrid 2: 0 Monaco: Antoine Griezmann on goal as host progress

Antoine Griezmann this season won his fourth goal in five Champions League games

Atletico Madrid qualifies for the elimination stages of the Champions League with a dominant home victory over Thierry Henry fighting Monaco.

Koke's deflected hit brought Atletico a second minute.

Antoine Griezmann then won two with a stylish finish.

Radamel Falcao lost a late penalty from Monaco to his former club. Atletico's Stefan Savic started off after receiving his second match and allowed a point kick.

It was an experience with Henry, whose Monaco finally won for the first time in his lead in Caen on Saturday. Penalties aside, they barely threatened against Diego Simeone's well-drilled clothes.

With just one point from five matches they will reach the final of group A.

Borussia Dortmund is also in the retirement phase but their unsuccessful draw at home in the Brugge club leaves that they need Atletico Madrid to slip into a final match against the Belgians to have a chance to topping the group.

Napoli consolidates Group leadership

The Belgian forward Dries Mertens has achieved 13 goals this season with an amazing level

Group C is overtaken by Napolel, who defeated Red Star Belgrade 3-1 in Naples.

Dries Mertens scored two excellent goals after Captain Marek Hamsik opened scoring early. El Fardou Ben fired home for the Serbian side.

As a result, Napoli needs a draw against Liverpool in the final group to make sure to qualify for the elimination stages.

Group D won Lokomotiv Moscow's first points in a 2-0 home campaign in Galatasaray.

This score meant that the leaders of the Porto group and the second Schalke qualified for the last 16.

Both sides met in Portugal and Porto won 3-1 to ensure they were at the top of the group.
