UEFA Champions League group G football match RB Leipzig vs Besiktas in Leipzig eastern Germany

If they pull it off, the Germans will reach the last 16 in their first Champions League campaign.

But the joy of the result will be short-lived for the Dutch club, who have failed to qualify for the knockout stages. However, the Dragons followed up their excellent 3-0 win in the principality in September with an equally comprehensive victory last night to seal second spot in Group G.

The German side, who had to achieve a better result than Porto to finish second behind Group G winners Besiktas, were beaten by a half-volleyed 90th minute strike from Brazil Under-23 worldwide Talisca.

Vincent Aboubakar has stated the Porto's intention "to go as far as possible" in the Uefa Champions League following Wednesday's annihilation of French champions Monaco at Estadio do Dragao.

Despite the loss, RB Lepzig booked a place in the Europa League having finished in the third position behind Besiktas and FC Porto. The match was ten vs. ten for nearly one hour after Porto centre-back Felipe and Monaco's Rachid Ghezzal were sent off after getting into an ugly tussle in the first half.

The January transfer window is coming ever closer, and teams are starting to be linked with players from all over the world. Very few people believed we would do what we've done in this competition.

"We are eager to do better than in the first leg, we do not like to lose twice against the same opponent", said Hasenhuettl.

Liverpool topped their group despite only recording 12 points in Group E. "It was important to score early to quickly settle the match".

Aboubakar has now scored 17 goals in all competitions this season, but he described the win as a "great collective performance" after the game. Save some of those for Russia Ron...
