Scottish giants Celtic and English sides Spurs and Birmingham City were left needing to win their final Europa League group matches if they are to have a chance of reaching the knockout stages after losing their penultimate group matches on Wednesday.
Spurs were surprisingly beaten 2-1 at home by PAOK Salonika - who qualified thanks to the win - after conceding two early goals and were unable to take advantage of playing all of the second-half against 10 men.
Celtic lost 1-0 at home to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid - who ensured they progressed - while Championship outfit Birmingham City went down by the same margin away at last season's surprise finalists Portuguese side Braga.
