Do-or-die for Lazio
Inzaghi was back on form against Marseille
Lazio 5-1 Olympique Marseille

Lazio kept their hopes of a quarter-final Champions League place alive with a 5-1 hammering of Olympique Marseille.

Man-of-the-match Simone Inzaghi scored four of the goals - and also missed a penalty for the Italian giants.

Lazio now have eight points, two less than Chelsea, and must win at Stamford Bridge to have any hope of progressing to the knockout stages.

Inzaghi opened the scoring in the 17th minute when Pavel Nedved put him through on goal and he slipped the ball through the legs of Marseille goalkeeper Stephane Porato.

The younger brother of Juventus striker Filippo added the second in the 37th minute as he collected a Conceicao cross just inside the area and slotted past Porato.

Inzaghi's hat-trick was completed a minute later when Porato failed to hold on to a Boksic shot and the ball trickled across to Inzaghi for a simple tap-in.

Marseille pulled a goal back five minutes after the break when Jerome Leroy headed in an Ivan de la Pena free-kick.

Eight minutes later Inzaghi had a penalty well saved by Porato but he then got his fourth with a close range finish in the 71st minute before Boksic headed the fifth eight minutes from time.

Real Madrid 2-2 Dynamo Kiev

Real Madrid failed to secure their progress into the last eight of the Champions League, after a 2-2 draw with Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

Real let slip at home
With Bayern Munich already through to the last eight, the second spot was up for grabs. Victory for Real would have ensured their place in the last eight, while a two-goal win for Kiev would have put them through.

As it is, both sides now have to win their final second phase matches next week to keep alive their hopes of qualifying - with Dynamo Kiev hosting Bayern Munich and Real Madrid travelling to Rosenborg.

Real took the lead after 13 minutes with a penalty from Raul.

Both sides then had penalties saved in the first half before Alexander Khatskevich headed an equaliser for the Ukrainians three minutes before the break.

Fernando Hierro turned a Georgi Demetradze shot into his own goal in the second half before a trademark Roberto Carlos thuderbolt free kick went under the body of Dynamo goalkeeper Olexander Skovkovsky to give Real a share of the points.

Michel Salgado and Ivan Helguera both missed clear chances late in the game which could have given Real Madrid victory and their passage into the quarter-finals.

Bayern Munich 2-1 Rosenborg

Bayern Munich secured top spot in Group C after a hard fought Champions League victory over Rosenborg.

Rosenberg gave the Bayern a scare
Bayern, who had already clinched a place in the quarter-finals, were tested twice early on after two fine efforts from John Carew.

But Bayern took stock and opened the scoring after just 11 minutes when midfielder Mehmet Scholl curled a free-kick inside the far post.

Carew again came close after a poor Bayern clearance, but he failed to control the ball and his shot trickled wide.

Bayern sealed the win from the spot in the 39th minute after Paulo Sergio was brought down by Bjoern Otto Bragstad just inside the Rosenborg area.

The Brazilian took the kick himself and sent goalkeeper Gautur Arason the wrong way.

Nine minutes into the second half, Morten Knutsen sent a prefect low ball into the Bayern area and Carew charged through between Patrik Andersson and Sammy Kuffour to frighten the Germans.

But it was too little, too late. With one game left, Bayern are safely ahead at the top of Group C. Rosenborg stay last in the group with just one point.
