On to the knockout stages!

With the completion of Match Day 6 in the Champions League today, we've got all the teams moving on to the knockout stages! Here's who solidified their place today.

Group E - Barcelona, Roma advance

Everyone expected Barcelona to advance, and they tied with Leverkusen to finish first in the group today. Leverkusen and Roma actually finished equal with 6 points but Roma advance on head to head. It's a very low amount of points to have qualified with but they won't care, as Leverkusen heads to the Europa League and BATE are out.

Group F - Bayern Munich, Arsenal advance

What a performance by Arsenal! They knew coming in that they had to win by at least 2 goals finish ahead of Olympiacos and they smashed the Greeks 3-0 to move on. Bayern had no trouble and beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-0. Arsenal will be thrilled to have made their comeback and have a spot in the last 16.

Group G - Chelsea, Dinamo Kiev advance

Chelsea save face with a 2-0 win over Porto as the Ukrainians take advantage of Porto's poor performances and shock everyone by advancing. This was a huge win for Chelsea and Porto will be very disappointed to have missed out in what was not a terribly difficult group. Minnows Maccabi Tel-Aviv finished the group last with 0 points and a -15 goal differential.

Group H - Zenit, Gent advance

A very surprising group, as Valencia and Lyon both miss out. Zenit will have liked their chances coming in but Gent are a real surprise, as the Belgians beat Zenit to finish second in the group. Valencia missed their chance but will move to the Europa League, while Lyon are sent packing.

Any real surprises for you?
