Atletico Madrid 2: 0 Monaco: Antoine Gritsmann in a match with the progress

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

Atletico Madrid qualified for the Champions League knockout stages with a dominant home victory over the Monastery of Thierry Henry.

Coke missed shot gave Atletico a second minute.

Then Antoine Griezmann made it with a stylish finish.

Radamel Falcao missed a penalty in the penalty area for Monaco against his former club, and Stefan Savic from Atletico sent the ball, receiving a second booking of the match to give the penalty.

It was a terrific experience for Henry, whose part of Monaco finally won for the first time under his leadership in Caen on Saturday. Fine aside, they hardly threatened Diego Simeone's well-drilled equipment.

In just one point in five games, they must finish the bottom of group A.

Borussia Dortmund also goes to the knockout stage, but their zero draw at home at the Club Brugge leaves them with a need for Atletico-Madrid to slip away in their final match against the Belgians to demonstrate a chance to lead the group.

Napoli consolidates Group C leadership

Belgian forward Dries Mertens made it 13 goals this season with a stunning brace

Group C heads Naples, who beat Red Star Belgrade 3-1 in Naples.

Dries Mertens scored two outstanding goals after captain Marek Hamsik opened the scoring early. El Fardu Ben fired home consolation for the Serbian side.

As a result, Naples needs a draw against Liverpool in the final group game to be confident in qualifying during the knockout stages.

In Group D, Lokomotiv Moscow raised its first position in the campaign with a 2-0 victory in Galatasaray.

This result meant the leaders of the Porto group and the second place Schalke, who had been qualified for the last 16.

Both sides met in Portugal with Porto, winning 3–1 to make sure they are leading the group.
