Napoli, Sevilla, Celtic into group stage

Sevilla like Celtic survived a major scare as their 2-2 home draw with Istanbul Basaksehir gave them a slender 4-3 aggregate win.

The Ligue 1 side lost 2-0 to Napoli, 4-0 on aggregate, with Napoli's first goal coming three minutes into the second half while Balotelli was arguing with match officials on the touchline.

"It would have been really negative to miss out on the Champions League".

Third in Serie A last season, Napoli were too strong for Nice, winning 2-0 in France with Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne both scoring as they progressed 4-0 on aggregate. Sarri's team won the first leg by a 2-0 score line at the San Paolo as they will be looking to defend this score.

But Olivier Ntcham ended Astana's hopes when his deflected strike made it 4-2 on the night before Leigh Griffiths reduced the deficit further in the final minute.

"Mario wasn't on song tonight - we have to call it like it is".

Nice will now compete in the Europa League this season and could come up against the likes of Arsenal in the group stage - a side he's already been dismissed against during his time in England with Manchester City. Now we've got to keep the excitement in check, because that can lead us down the wrong path.

Wissam Ben Yedder put Sevilla 2-1 ahead before Edin Visca equalised for Basaksehir with seven minutes left which was not enough to seal qualification into the group stage.

Mitja Viler scored the only goal of the night after a cross from the endline deflected out to him to just inside the box, and he lashed home in the 15th minute.

The draw for the lucrative group stage will be held in Monaco on Thursday.
