Aboubakar double sends Porto through with win over Monaco

Leipzig's forward Timo Werner celebrates with his teammate Leipzig's midfielder Emil Forsberg after scoring during the German first division Bundesliga football match against Hannover 96

With the game finishing 5-2 and Besiktas beating RB Leipzig elsewhere in group G, the Portuguese side have finished second and qualified.

It's the first time Besiktas has reached the knockout stages, and the first time a Turkish side progressed as group victor.

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. The Lions accumulated 7 points to book their place in the Europa League and will be a seeded team in Monday's draw.

"The team showed morale and never stopped", Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuettl said.

"We had enough chances to win four or five games this evening", lamented Hasenhüttl to Sky afterwards - and indeed Timo Werner did have the ball in the net half-way through the first half only for the goal to be correctly ruled out for offside.

The home side's hopes of progress were made worse with the news that Porto had already taken the lead at home against Monaco. Referee Viktor Kassai ruled the goal out for offside after consulting him, however.

Jean-Kevin Augustin went close to an equalizer after the break, Keita tried his luck, and Werner brought the best from Tolga Zengin.

Their task was made even more hard in the second half when Stefan Ilsanker was sent off for a second yellow card but, despite being a man down, Naby Keita drew the hosts level immediately, driving through the Besiktas defense and finishing clinically.

When Monaco relieved the pressure they were awarded a penalty for an alleged handball against Ivan Marcano and Glik drilled the spot-kick low into the bottom-left corner.
