Tottenham beat Marseille 2-1 to top the group with a goal from Pierre-mile Haberg in injury time.
Frankfurt also managed to finish second in the group, beating Lisbon by the same margin, making their Champions League debut. The top two teams from each group will advance to the pre-quarterfinals. The top two teams from other groups were fixed but the order of some teams changed. Porto topped Group B after beating Atlético Madrid 2–1 while Club Brugge played out a goalless draw against Bayern Leverkusen.
