Last season’s Europa League finalists Marseille have been knocked out of this season’s competition after a 2-1 defeat to Lazio.

Goals from Marco Parolo and Joaquin Correa in the Group H fixture were enough to extend a miserable run for the French side, who have now lost four games in a row in all competitions.

Lazio, meanwhile, went through to the last 32 along with Eintracht Frankfurt, who eliminated Apollon Limassol after a 3-2 victory in the other game in the section.

Olivier Giroud headed Chelsea into the Europa League knockout stages as they beat BATE Borisov 1-0 in Belarus while group-rivals Vidi kept their qualification hopes alive with a 1-0 home victory over PAOK Salonika.

Arsenal was held to a 0-0 home draw by Sporting Lisbon, seeing them through to the knockout rounds. Qarabag joined Vorskla on three points after winning their match 1-0.

Celtic beat RB Leipzig 2-1 to join the German side on six points in Group B – although the Bundesliga team have a better goal difference and head-to-head record – while Takumi Minamino’s hat-trick inspired Red Bull Salzburg to a 5-2 win at Rosenborg – their fourth straight victory in the competition.

Steven Gerrard’s hopes of guiding Rangers out of Group G suffered a blow in a seven-goal thriller in Moscow, losing 4-3 to Spartak Moscow, which has allowed Villarreal to leap to the top of a now wide-open group with a 0-0 draw at Rapid Vienna.

Sevilla – the most successful team in the history of the competition with five titles – went down to 10-men at Akhisarspor but came away with a 3-2 win in Group J thanks to a late Ever Banega penalty that ended the Turkish side’s qualifying hopes.

However, Krasnodar top Group J after a 2-1 home victory over Standard Liege, with Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov and Wanderson netting for the Russians.
