  1. Good night

    So Liverpool go through and Celtic are out.

    Spurs also qualified but spare a thought for them and their 2,500-mile flight home to play Chelsea on Sunday at 12:00 GMT.

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila: "Some of the same things were happening. Again it was not good enough. But I see talent that will develop.

    "This gives me a lot of energy to bounce back and I've done that many times in my career."

    Liverpool 2-1 Bordeaux

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on BT Sport: "It was an important night for the whole team or the club because we are in the next round. A few weeks ago we were with three points and now we have nine and we can go top of the table in the next round so it's a big chance for us.

    "I don't know about [Daniel Sturridge's injury]. We have to wait for some things, it's a fight again, we have to be prepared and we will be prepared. The atmosphere tonight was great and we really enjoyed it. 2-1 is a good result [for the fans] to stay [until the end]."

  6. 'Strange decisions'

    Liverpool 2-1 Bordeaux

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on BT Sport: "There is no bad news tonight because we knew the before the game Bordeaux are much better than their situation in the table. We tried to defend in the centre, the first half was better, when we had the ball we had more ideas, but we lost balls in difficult situations for us, so it was an open game for us.

    "There were some strange decisions I would say, I hope strange is not too hard a word. Frustrated? I don't know. [Simon Mignolet] was 20 seconds with the ball? Oh OK. Usually you won't give this type of free-kick. Easy games every can win but this was not an easy game."

    Anon: Benteke is NOT a Liverpool player. The Reds have always hunted in packs of two - eg St John/Hunt, Toshack/Keegan, Dalglish/Rush, Fowler/Owen, Suarez/Sturridge. No forward who has to wait for the ball will succeed. Still, I suppose he is prepared to play!!! falsefalsefalseA different anon: Can we please get rid of Deila? I have three season tickets and have had for decades and I arrived in a very wet Glasgow tonight and thought before the game this was not going to happen. I made a good choice of a nice dinner and drinks. Where I am now is I will not be renewing my season tickets after 35 years. The team, the formation, the lack of capability and possibility to change formation suck. Lowell is obviously a business man and not a football man. Time to get real.

    Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet on his error for Bordeaux's goal: "What can you do? Unfortunately I waited a bit too long but the fortunate thing is we responded. We have qualified now and hopefully we can win group."

    Christian Benteke on being brought down for the penalty: "I have to play the game, he grabbed me and I think it's a penalty. I try to do my job when the coach needs me and try to work hard for the team. I came here to fight for every game and take the opportunities the manager gives me."

    Ajax dominated possession and had more shots - but Celtic actually had more efforts on target. But there's only one stat that counts

    Michy Batshuayi (pictured) scored a late goal to give Marseille victory a 2-1 victory over Dutch side Groningen in Group F. The French side need a point against Slovan Liberec to secure their passage.

    Midtjylland's fate hangs in the balance after they lost 1-0 to Group D bottom side Legia Warsaw. They need to defeat Club Brugge in the final match to guarantee their passage.

    In the other match, Napoli secured their fifth win from five thanks to Vlad Chiricheş's first-half effort against Club Brugge. 

    Fenerbahce's 2-0 win in Molde mean they will need to beat Group A's bottom side Celtic to secure their route to the knockout round.

    So a reminder of where we stand. Celtic need a goal (either in their game or in the group's other game) to stay in the tournament.

  36. CLOSE!

    Celtic 1-1 Ajax

    Leigh Griffiths has a great chance to put Celtic ahead after breaking the offside trap but his shot is too near Jasper Cillessen and it's save, the ball rolling out for a corner.

    From that corner, Jozo Simunovic has two or three chances to turn it in but fails. Fifteen minutes left to save their European season.

    They need to score to stay in the tournament.

  39. Celtic going out?

    Fenerbahce have scored against Molde through Fernandao in Group A - as it stands Celtic are out.

    Mike, Liverpool: Liverpool hoping Benteke grows into a £32.5m player. Arsenal paid £35m for Sanchez. Sanchez is undoubtedly the better player. Everton paid £28m for Lukaku, who is a better striker, but perhaps not such a technical player. I feel Liverpool over-paid for Benteke - cue Benteke hat-trick.

    Liverpool bring off midfielder Joe Allen and on comes Emre Can.

    Bordeaux also make a change - striker Cheick Diabate on for Enzo Crivelli.

    They could probably do a whole university course into studying whether Christian Benteke is very good or not. The Belgian waits for a Roberto Firmino pass to roll to him, rather than coming for it, and it's intercepted.

    Liverpool striker Christian Benteke has the ball in the net for the third time - but it's disallowed for the second time. James Milner crosses to Benteke, who slams home. He thinks he's scored, all of Anfield does, but the referee spotted a shove on defender Ludovic Sane which is how Benteke found his space to score.

    But two defeats by Molde, 3-1 and 2-1 last time out, and they are in real trouble now.

    It's been coming and it's here. Harry Kane heads home Christian Eriksen's corner from six yards out.

    That's his ninth Spurs goal in his last six games. That lad loves a goal spurt.

  125. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Dele Alli, who has been Tottenham's best player tonight, smashes the ball off the post with a first-time volley.

    Qarabag v Tottenham (18:00 GMT)

    Qarabag are originally from Agdam but the city was destroyed in the Nagorno-Karabakh War in the 1990s.

    It was once a city of 50,000 people, who all fled when Armenia attacked. Every Azeri house in the town was blown up to discourage return. 

    The club now play in Baku, over 200 miles away.
