Atletico Madrid and Barcelona have advanced to the knockout stages as group winners in the Champions League.

Spanish giants Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have progressed to the knock-out stages of the Champions League as group winners with comfortable victories over Celtic and PSV Eindhoven.

Lionel Messi struck either side of the interval to give Barcelona a simple 2-0 win over Socceroo Tom Rogic's team in Glasgow to win Group C.

While Manchester City advanced after being held 1-1 at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Atletico, beaten finalists last season, won 2-0 on second half goals from Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann to top Group D from Bayern Munich who were earlier stunned 3-2 at Rostov.

Paris Saint-Germain seized the initiative in Group A as they drew 2-2 at Arsenal in a battle to top the table while Napoli now lead Group B despite a frustrating goalless draw with Dynamo Kiev.

Earlier, Besiktas hit back from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Benfica.
