Thursday 18 November
Rapid Vienna 0-2 West Ham
West Ham waltzed into the last 16 of the Europa League with a game to spare after a 2-0 victory at Rapid Vienna.
First-half goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Mark Noble wrapped up top spot in Group H for David Moyes’ side.
It was an important victory for the Hammers as they are now straight through to the knockout stage having avoided a play-off in February against a team dropping down from the Champions League.
Leverkusen 3-2 Celtic - 5.45pm KO
Celtic’s hopes of progressing in the Europa League were dashed in agonising fashion as a late fightback from Bayer Leverkusen denied them a famous victory in Germany.
Ange Postecoglou’s spirited side knew they would probably require a win to keep their last-32 dream alive and they were on course for this outcome until the closing stages after a Josip Juranovic penalty and a strike from Jota cancelled out Robert Andrich’s early goal for the hosts.
However, Leverkusen hit back twice in the closing eight minutes to win 3-2 and top the group.
Leicester 3-1 Legia Warsaw
Leicester took control of their Europa League fate with a deserved 3-1 win over Legia Warsaw.
Patson Daka, James Maddison and Wilfred Ndidi sent the Foxes top of Group C ahead of next month’s final game against Napoli.
Victory in Naples would book Brendan Rodgers’ side an automatic spot in the last 16.
Rangers 2-0 Sparta Prague - 8pm KO
Giovanni Van Bronckhorst led Rangers into the Europa League knockout stages in his first game in charge.
An Alfredo Morelos double earned Rangers a 2-0 victory over Sparta Prague in front of 48,370 fans at Ibrox.
The victory ensured Rangers went out of sight of Brondby ahead of their final game against Group A winners Lyon and their 2-1 aggregate score over Sparta means the Czech side cannot overturn a three-point deficit.
Spartak Moscow 2-1 Napoli (3.30pm kick-off on Wednesday)
