Thank you and goodnight

And that is that for tonight's Champions League coverage. City were superb, United did what they had to do. One is through, the other has given themselves a great chance of following suit.

Be sure to join us tomorrow for live text coverage of Chelsea and Arsenal's endeavours in Europe.

It has been a pleasure. Night.

Record man!

Back to tonight and Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas broke a record.

He has now gone longer than any keeper to go without conceding a goal since making their Champions League debut. So in his six games, conceding no goals takes him past the 529 minutes Miguel Angel Moya managed when he made his debut in the tournament for Atletico Madrid.

Tomorrow's action

And so attention switches to tomorrow night, which sees two more English sides in action as part of another eight-game Champions League extravaganza.

Arsenal are at Bayern Munich, looking to seal what would be a stunning double over the German champions. The Gunners are bottom of Group F but would go level on points with leaders Bayern if they win.

Meanwhile, Chelsea host Dynamo Kiev. The Blues are third in Group G with four points, behind Kiev (five points) and Porto (seven points).

The only other qualification place decided tonight came in Group A, where 10-time winners Real Madrid sealed their progress with a 1-0 win over filthy-rich French side Paris St-Germain. Real have 10 points, PSG seven, with Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo (which ended 4-0 to the former tonight)on three each.

Group C is closing to a conclusion, with Benfica's 2-1 win over Galatarsaray meaning they are top with nine points, two points ahead of Atletico Madrid (who drew 0-0 at FC Astana). Galatasaray have four points, Astana two.

Fernandinho posts on Instagram: "Great night for the all city fans. Excellent team performance also. Happy to score a goal."

Francis Edwards: City beat an average Spanish side and now they think they can win the league but don't want to be drawn against the big teams.

Sam Sene: Remember how the press were crying about how badly English teams were doing in the Champions League.

Matt Catchpole: I've grown a beard since #ManUtd last scored a goal - what a relief to finally get a win!  

As it stands

So, United are top of Group B, City are top of Group D and already through to the last 16. 

United's next Champions League game is at home against second-placed PSV ahead of a final-game trip to Wolfsburg. Both those teams have six points, two ahead of CSKA. As Goldmember said, it's tiiiiight. Like a tiger.

City's nine points is enough to ensure qualification, with third-placed Sevilla having just three points to their name. Only Juventus (eight points) can prevent them winning the group. City travel to Juve next before facing Borussia Monchengladbach in their final game at the Etihad.

City please Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini:"It is very important to qualify for the next stage, now we will try to qualify in first position. I'm happy with the way we played, we scored three goals, missed three of four clear chances to score, and we defended well. 

"I was not happy with the way we were playing in the previous games, so I'm happy with our form tonight.

"The three midfielders - Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Fernando - played well, pressed higher and our attack was really prepared. We played with one touch and moved into space, that was the reason we created so many chances."

Rooney: "Denis Law is a legend at this club and to equal his goalscoring record is a huge honour for me." #mufc

Rooney now has 237 United goals - level with Law and 12 behind the record of Bobby Charlton.

Grow into the next stage

What a brilliant display by the whole team today! Let's keep growing strong in the Champions League! C'mon, City!

'We played well'

Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, who was told his side had put in a good performance on BT Sport: "A good performance? Thank you for the compliment. It is unbelievable because we have created at least 12 chances and had to wait a long time. Before that they could have scored and then it is a different match. I am happy. We played well."

Like Manchester City, Real Madrid are celebrating a place in the knockout stages. They had 13 shots to 15 by Paris St-Germain - who hit the woodwork twice - but Nacho's goal got the job done.

PSG - second in the group - have a four-point cushion over Shakhtar in third, so they should still make it.

Player reaction

Sevilla 1-3 Man City

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany: "The first feeling is 'finally'. It's a difficult group and to qualify with two games spare is an incredible achievement. We now have to try and finish first in group, so will try to do that."

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling: "It was a special goal for me, but most important thing was the way the team played."

"Louis van Gaal will be feeling smug. When we knew Fellaini was coming on I thought it would be interesting as to who would come off. Maybe Wayne Rooney. It didn't cross my mind it would be Martial.

"The manager will say look 'this is the guy who can score goals,' so you can absolutely see his thinking. Are these Manchester United fans coming out and thinking 'in Van Gaal we trust' now?

As I suggested earlier, a toothless attack makes much better headlines than a solid defence. But now that United have ended their 404 minutes without a goal, United can proudly brandish a record of having not conceded in their last four matches. Actually, it is seven and three quarter hours. Fair play.

United's win was nervous. City's was confident and classy. This is a difficult place to come, but Manuel Pellegrini's men burst out of the blocks and then dug in when needed. It is an impressive way to seal your place in the last 16. With two games to go, no less.

'Job done'

Man Utd 1-0 CSKA

"Job done. I think Manchester United played very well in the first half, controlled and dominated. But they lost their way in the early period in the second half. Then Anthony Martial was taken off which really shocked this place. Wayne Rooney was there to get that chance that was unmissable. So once again, Wayne Rooney - without  playing brilliantly - wins the game for United."

FULL-TIME

Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

Game over. Job done. Just. For much of that match, United were struggling, short of ideas and stirring the ire of their own fans. But one Wayne Rooney goal later they are top of the group. Louis van Gaal slams an upturned thumb into the sky. He's happy. 

Sevilla 1-3 Man City

Four minutes added in Seville. City heading for victory.

Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

Three minutes added at Old Trafford. CSKA have a corner. In it comes. Out it goes, off the head of Marouane Fellaini. But the ball comes back... straight into the grasp of David de Gea.

'Top of the pile'

"This will give them a real opportunity to not only qualify but to maybe win the group which can make a big difference as we know."

And GOOD NEWS for Manchester United fans as PSV Eindhoven now lead Wolfsburg 2-0. So United will top the group on seven points if things stay the same. PSV and Wolfsburg would be on six.

Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

We are into the last minute at Old Trafford. Imagine how angry the fans would be now if Rooney hadn't scored to end the 404 minutes they had gone previously without a goal. As it is, they are much more content. In fact, some are so confident they have left already. Some people... I ask you!

SUBSTITUTION

Sevilla 1-3 Man City

Wilfried Bony's night is done. He gets a standing ovation from the City fans, which will boost him after coming in for some stick of late. His replacement is Fabian Delph, back after injury.

Wayne Rooney celebrates

.@WayneRooney is now level with Denis Law on 237 goals for #mufc, 12 behind Sir Bobby Charlton's record.

Still tight in Madrid

Still just the one goal in it at the Bernabeu. That goalkeeping mistake by Kevin Trapp looks enough to ensure Real Madrid guarantee they progress.

Paris St-Germain are pressing but under Rafa Benitez, Real look well organised, compact and resolute.

Much better from Bony tonight but still frustrating to watch at times. Imagine if Sergio was on... this'd be a cricket score #bbcfootball

As it stands, United and City top their respective groups.

Manchester City are doing a fine job in Seville to keep the Spanish side at bay and see this game out. Are we looking at a very good night for Mancunian clubs in Europe?

'A stunning relief'

Man Utd 1-0 CSKA

Pat Nevin

BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

"Do you think there;s a fair chance Louis van Gaal may feel a wee bit smug at the moment. Rooney has not done well in this second half. The fans wanted him taken off not Anthony Martial.

"What a relief. A stunning relief considering they had only just nearly lost a goal."

GOAL - Man United 1-0 CSKA Moscow

Wayne Rooney

Joy, relief, a mixture of both. United were so nearly behind but now they lead. It is a wonderful first-time volleyed cross from Jesse Lingard, following a cross-field pass, that gives Wayne Rooney just the keeper to beat, which he does with a header into the roof of the net. Louis van Gaal is out of his seat. Of course he is!

Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

Never mind hearts in mouths. United hearts were 10 yards above their heads as Seydou Doumbia gets away and runs in on goal. His first effort is saved by David de Gea but the striker seems destined to slot in the rebound until Chris Smalling's slide to block. Old Trafford gives a collective 'phew!'

SUBSTITUTION

Sevilla 1-3 Man City

Perhaps Sevilla are happy to see Kevin de Bruyne come on after all. That's because Raheem Sterling, who has ran them ragged all night with his pace and movement, is the man replaced. Little over 15 minutes left in southern Spain. City through as it stands. Three important little words there....

Man United 0-0 CSKA Moscow

Less than 15 minutes to go at Old Trafford. The play is almost exclusively in the CSKA half. But the Russians are holding out. Memphis Depay looks to cross into the box from the left but somehow manages to miss the 18-yard area, instead planting his ball into the stand behind the goal.
