In the last match of Group G, Besiktas beat Leipzig 2-1 in an away match in Germany.

The German side, who had to achieve a better result than Porto to finish second behind Group G winners Besiktas, were beaten by a half-volleyed 90th minute strike from Brazil Under-23 worldwide Talisca.

In the 87th minute, however, Leipzig's Naby Keita scored the equaliser to level the scoreline.

Feyenoord ended Napoli's slim hopes of reaching the last 16 as Jeremiah St Juste's late goal snatched a 2-1 win for the Dutch side.

Turkish football team Besiktas defeated Germany's Leipzig on Wednesday to become the only Turkish club to advance to the UEFA Champions League's round of 16 undefeated. Willi Orban brought down Jeremain Lens inside the box, allowing Alvaro Negredo to slot home the opener form the penalty spot after sending custodian Peter Gulacsi the wrong way in the 10th minute.

But Talisca's goal in the 90th minute gave the Black Eagles a boost into last 16.

Liverpool's convincing victory over Shakhtar Donetsk - the Spanish team's rivals for second place - ensured that even after dropping points to Maribor, they progressed to the knockout stage.

They are the only Turkish team to qualify from the group stage undefeated and as group leader in the history of the tournament. The Italian club's hopes of snatching second place in Group F, however, were hit as Feyenoord fought back to equalise through Nicolai Jorgensen before claiming the dramatic victor and their first points in this year's group stage.

"I wouldn't say it was the most incredible game of my career as Leipzig have had plenty of big games during my time with the club which I've started".

"We need to keep playing with the same discipline going forward. A game against Bayern would be special though", Tosun said, according to UEFA's official website.
