The 16 qualifiers have been finalised, and the group stage of this season's UEFA Champions League is over and done with.

Juventus were perhaps the biggest shock after Galatasaray knocked them out on a dreadful pitch in Turkey in a game that perhaps should not have been played, such was the farcical nature of the spectacle.

Neymar became the first player in history to score a hat-trick in both the Copa Libertadores and Champions League with his treble against Celtic, while Schalke beat Basel in Germany to advance at the expense of the Swiss side. 

And of course, there were numerous talking points elsewhere, not least Kevin Grosskreutz's 88th-minute winner in Marseille, which sent last year's finalists Dortmund into the last 16 at the expense of Napoli.
