Harry Kane scored another goal and Son netted the winner to gain his side the top spot in the group. Meanwhile, Real Madrid destroyed APOEL Nicosia 6-0 as both Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema scored twice and the Spanish giant is through as well.

Napoli are still alive as they beat Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 at home and they remain 3 points behind the Ukrainian side.
