Atletico Madrid 2-0 Monaco: Antoine Griezmann on target as host of progress

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

Atletico Madrid qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a dominant home win over Thierry Henry who was struggling against Monaco.

Koke's deflected shot gave Atletico the lead in the second minute.

Antoine Griezmann then made it two with a touch of style.

Radamel Falcao missed a penalty for Monaco against his former club with Atletico Stefan Savic was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for the match.

It was an unpleasant experience for Henry whose Monaco team finally won for the first time under his management in Caen on Saturday. The rest of his sentence, they barely threatened Diego Simeone's clothes which were drilled well.

With only one point from five matches, they are set to complete the bottom of Group A.

Borussia Dortmund also qualified for the knockout stages but their goalless draw at home to Brugge meant they needed Atletico Madrid to slip in their final match against Belgium to get the chance to top the group.

Napoli consolidate Group C leaders

Belgian forward Dries Mertens made 13 goals this season with two amazing goals

Group C above it by Napoli who beat Red Star Belgrade 3-1 in Naples.

Dries Mertens scored two incredible goals after captain Marek Hamsik opened the scoring early. El Fardou Ben fired home entertainment for the Serbian team.

The result left Napoli needing a draw against Liverpool in the final group match to ensure qualification for the knockout stages.

In Group D, Lokomotiv Moscow took their first point of the campaign with a 2-0 home win against Galatasaray.

That score means the Porto group leader and second-ranked team Schalke qualify for the last 16.

Both sides met in Portugal with Porto winning 3-1 to ensure they are top of the group.
