Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Shakhtar Donetsk and Valencia reached the knockout stage of the Champions League, while Chelsea is on the verge of becoming the first holder to fail to make it out of the group stage. They dropped to third in Group E behind Shakhtar and Juve after the Ukranian team rallied to beat Nordsjælland 5-2. Juve now visit Donetsk where a draw will be enough for them.
In Moscow, Barcelona advanced for the ninth straight season after defeating Spartak Moscow 3-0 in Group G with Lionel Messi scoring another two goals to close to within five of Gerd Mueller's single-year record of 85.
In the same group, two weeks after beating Barcelona at home in one of its best ever European performances, Celtic lost 2-1 at Benfica.
Bayern, last year's finalist, and Valencia both advanced from Group F after drawing 1-1 in Spain.
Valencia went down to 10 men in the 33rd minute after right back Antonio Barragan was sent off but went ahead thanks to midfielder Sofiane Feghouli's goal in the 77th. Thomas Mueller equalized five minutes later with a shot that grazed Feghouli.
Already-qualified Manchester United lacked firepower in losing 1-0 at Galatasaray after fielding an under-strength team.
