"Of course [the owner] is not happy - no-one at the club is".

Real coach Zinedine Zidane said his team should have killed off the game. For this reason, I give a chance to them.

Sevilla made the last 16 for the first time in seven years after soaking up the pressure to draw 0-0 away to Lyon.

Porto halted a run of five straight draws courtesy of teenager Rui Pedro's 95th-minute victor over Braga at the weekend, ending a club record run of 520 minutes without a goal.

But they could not find a way through, with Corentin Tolisso and Mathieu Valbuena both hitting the woodwork.

"I think when we win we win together and when we lose we lose together".

Table-topping Juventus defeated Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 with Gonzalo Higuain and Daniele Rugani on target.

Ben Hamer was given a first start for nearly two years in goal while Marcin Wasilewski made just his second appearance of the season and 18-year-old Harvey Barnes made his debut in the second half.

It took just six minutes for Andre Silva to open the scoring, heading home a corner and City shot-stopper Ben Hamer could possibly have done better.

Porto scored their fifth goal with 12 minutes left when Silva played in Jose Diogo Jota who composed himself before lashing the ball through Hamer's legs while Leonardo Ulloa was denied a late consolation goal when he smashed the ball against the bar.

The dismal performance prompted manager Claudio Ranieri, who has overseen a poor defense of the Foxes' league title while thriving on European nights, to admit afterwards: "I want us to show our character and our strength".

"We said that right after the game in Denmark that we had not failed, and now we have achieved another goal".

Portuguese giants Porto, European champions in 1987 and 2004, host Leicester City in their final Group G match, wary of FC Copenhagen pipping them to second spot.

Monaco, the Group E toppers, suffered their only defeat of the group stage, falling 0-3 to Germany's Bayer Leverkusen, who finished second.

Meanwhile Tottenham's winless Wembley run ended as Mauricio Pochettino's men sealed a 3-1 win over CSKA Moscow.
