GOODBYE

And that, my LIVE friends, is that. Thank you very much for following on a wonderful night for Sergio Aguero and a record-breaking one for Lionel Messi. We'll be back right here from 18:00 GMT on Wednesday for more Champions League action including LUDOGORETS v LIVERPOOL and ARSENAL v DORTMUND. See you then!

PERMUTATION TIME - GROUP H

Porto progress as group leaders after Shakhtar Donetsk - already guaranteed at least second before kick-off - fell to a shock defeat to Athletic Bilbao. BATE Borisov, with a quite frankly ridiculous goal difference of MINUS TWENTY, could still make the Europa League.

MESSI REACTION

Lionel Messi to UEFA.com: "It was a very important game. We were able to get the three points and that's what really matters.We must continue as we are, meet the objectives of the beginning of the year and try to stay on this way. Against PSG it will be a difficult match. They have very good players who know each other and are growing. We are the home team and we will try to be first, that's what we want."

GROUP G - PERMUTATION TIME

Chelsea will finish top of Group G after extending their lead over second place to four points. Sporting’s win over Maribor, which was delayed by around 45 minutes due to floodlight failure, sees them leapfrog Schalke into second. And Maribor aren’t out of the equation yet; they’ll qualify for the Europa League if they win on matchday six.

SHAKHTAR DONETSK 0-1 ATHLETIC BILBAO

Martin Macdonald reports: “The home side already qualified for the last-16 prior to this match, but cannot top the group now and thus run the risk of drawing one of Europe's big guns in the next round. A very deserved victory for the Basque side, who look to have saved some kind of European ambition for the season.”

WHERE WOULD MAN CITY BE WITHOUT AGUERO?

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany: “I don’t know! If you want to succeed at anything you need a special player in special form, otherwise you just don’t win anything. He’s our special player. When he’s in that form he makes things achievable that otherwise wouldn’t be.”

PELLEGRINI REACTION

The Manchester City manager tells ITV Sport: “Well I think that all the big teams need big players. Sergio is a big player, he’s a top player, he’s very important. But I think that the whole team continued playing with trust until the end. We conceded two unbelievable goals by Bayern but the whole team continued trusting and working and playing until the end.”

GROUP F - PERMUTATION TIME

Group F is simple. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are through, with the winner of the meeting between the clubs at Camp Nou on matchday six topping the group, and the winner of Ajax v APOEL will finish third and drop down to the Europa League.

SPORTING 3-1 MARIBOR

Ben Cullimore reports: “Bar a short period at the start of the second half when Maribor were very impressive, Sporting absolutely bossed tonight's clash, and, as a result, they deservedly pick up all three points.”

PSG 3-1 AJAX

Alex Moretto reports: “PSG claim all three points, but it was far from straightforward for them. Ajax looked the likelier team to bag a winner in the second half until a moment of brilliance from Ibrahimovic restored the hosts lead, before Cavani pounced on a defensive miscue to secure the win.”

GROUP E - PERMUTATION TIME

An incredible night for Manchester City that sees them head into the final matchday with a superb chance of making the last 16. A win over Roma *should* be enough to go through but if CSKA Moscow pull off an unlikely victory against Bayern Munich, City will be out...

APOEL 0-4 BARCELONA - SUAREZ GETS FIRST GOAL

Luis Suarez to TV3: "I did not have anxiety. I was calm because though I was not scoring, I was helping the team. The important thing is to obtain results. My position? It depends on the moment. We knew that PSG were favourites against Ajax but we will play in Barcelona."

PRESSURE OFF FOR CHELSEA

More from Mourinho: “We did it with one game in advance, so it is important for us to have in December, in such a difficult month, to have one match against Sporting where we don’t need [to win] ... obviously we are going to try to win but we don’t need the points to qualify or even to finish first.”
