German gloom after double exit
Brago Emanuel of Boavista goes head-to-head with Borussia's Otto Addo
Former European champions Borussia Dortmund saw their Champions League dreams turn to dust as they slumped to a shock defeat at the hands of Boavista.
And another of Germany's hopefuls, Bayer Leverkusen, also crashed out after being held to a 0-0 by Slovenian underdogs Maribor Teatanic.
Dortmund, who won the European Cup in 1997, were expected to come through in Group C behind run-away leaders Rosenberg of Norway.
Pedro Emanuel scored after 16 minutes to dent Borussia's hopes - and after that there was no way back.
Feyenoord of the Netherlands secured the second qualifying place in the group, courtesy of a late 1-0 win over Rosenberg, Brazilian substitute Somalia scoring with just four minutes left on the clock.
Leverkusen's disappointing goalless draw at home in Group A means they have to settle for a berth in the Uefa Cup, along with all the other third-place teams.
A point was not enough for the Germans because although Dynamo Kiev, semi-finalists last year, crashed to a 1-0 home defeat to group winners Lazio they finished second, ahead of Leverkusen.
Both Kiev and Leverkusen finished with seven points each, but Kiev advanced because they had the better head-to-head record between the two after drawing 1-1 in Germany and winning 4-2 in Ukraine.
While other teams were scrambling to safety or suffering the agonies of elimination, Barcelona and Fiorentina - who had already made sure of their places in the second phase from Group B - enjoyed a celebratory night with a 3-3 draw in Florence.
Argentine Abel Balbo scored twice for the home team, Brazilian Rivaldo scored twice for Barcelona, who finished top with 14 points.
Olympique Marseille, the other qualifiers from Manchester United's group denied Croatia Zagreb their Uefa Cup consolation by equalising in the last minute to force a 2-2 draw.
That meant Austrian side Sturm Graz claimed third place and now enter the Uefa Cup.
