Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur secured their places in the last 16 of the Champions League in the first set of games on Matchday 5.

Madrid threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Paris Saint-Germain but its progress had been secured before kick off, thanks to Club Brugge’s 1-1 draw away to Galatasaray – a remarkable game in which the celebrations after Krepin Diatta’s last-minute leveler led to both him and Clinton Mata picking up second yellow cards.

Robert Lewandowski scored four as Bayern Munich, already qualified above Spurs, beat Crvena Zvezda 6-0, taking his tally to 10 in this season’s Champions League and 27 in 20 games this season.

Atalanta kept its hope of progress alive with a 2-0 home win over Dinamo Zagreb. The Serie A side trails second placed Shakhtar by two points after the Ukrainians drew 1-1 at Manchester City.

Bayer Leverkusen also remains in the hunt with a 2-0 win away to Lokomotiv Moscow that took it to within a point of Atletico Madrid, which lost 1-0 to Juventus, the goal a brilliant free-kick from a narrow angle from Paulo Dybala.
