PSV Eindhoven 1-2 Barcelona

Barcelona qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League as Group B winners after edging PSV Eindhoven 2-1 in the penultimate group match.

Luuk de Jong pulled a goal back for PSV, eight minutes before time, but the visitors held on for victory.

Ernesto Valverde’s charges are top of Group B with 13 points from five games while PSV lost their fourth game in the group sitting bottom with a single point.

Eliminated Dutch side will have a major role in deciding the fate of Inter Milan in their last match on December 11 while the Spanish giants will entertain Tottenham Hotspur who will be desperate for victory in their last round-robin game in the second week of December.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Inter Milan

Tottenham Hotspur clinched a crucial 1-0 win over Inter Milan to keep their hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Uefa Champions League alive in a Group B clash on Wednesday night.

Christian Eriksen was the hero for the English side as he netted ten minutes before time to clinch all the three points.

Spurs are in second place but level on points with third placed Inter on seven points and will need victory in their last match away to Barcelona to secure a place in the last 16.

The Italian side, who are also chasing a last 16 spot, have a relatively ‘easier’ task playing against PSV in their last match in the second week of December. Kickoff
