Only a heavy defeat could have eliminated United in Group A, but Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored two minutes apart in the second half to seal victory at Old Trafford, where they are unbeaten in 40 games in all competitions now. CSKA had taken the lead on the stroke of half-time, a shot from the Brazilian Vitinho going in off the back of Alan Dzagoev. "I'm really happy because we don't want to qualify with a defeat, we don't want to qualify with a bad performance," said Mourinho.

Kylian Mbappe got one back just after the break, leaving Bayern with too much to do, although Tolisso did score again to make it 3-1. PSG will be the happier side at winning the group, although possible last-16 opponents for them are Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid.

"I am 50 percent happy and 50 percent disappointed," said their coach Unai Emery. Celtic, who lost 7-1 at PSG last time out, lost 1-0 at home to Anderlecht after a Jozo Simunovic own goal in the second half. Despite a fifth loss in six group games, they limp into the Europa League in the new year. Liverpool are among the sides hoping to secure a place in the last 16 on Wednesday, with four more berths still up for grabs for next Monday's draw.
