Barcelona 2-0 Sporting CP Champions League: as it happened, goals, match report
Barcelona cruised through the final match of the Champions League Group Stage with Lionel Messi starting on the bench. Paco Alcácer glanced Luis Suárez' corner inside the far post just before the hour mark. Jeremy Mathieu - who joined Sporting from Barça in the summer - secured the win for his former club with an own goal in stoppage time.
MOTM: Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan turned in an industrious performance and showed signs of regaining the sharpness that has evaded him this season. No goals, but his general play was positive.
Who qualifies to the next stage of the Champions League?
Barcelona qualify from Group D in first place. Juventus' victory over Olympiacos means Sporting will head to the Europa League courtesy of a third-place finish.
Who is up next?
Both sides will return to their domestic leagues and refocus on a title challenge. Barcelona make the trip down the Mediterranean coast to Villarreal at the weekend, while Sporting travel to Boavista.
