Holders Atletico crash out

Holders Atletico Madrid crashed out of the Europa League despite a 1-0 away win in the second leg of their last-32 tie with Rubin Kazan at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

A goal by Radamel Falcao in the 84th minute gave the visitors hope of overturning the two-goal deficit from the first leg at the Vicente Calderon last week.

Yet despite playing with a man extra in the final minutes after Rubin captain Cesar Navas was sent off, the Spanish side were unable to score again.

Tottenham reached the last 16 in dramatic fashion as Mousa Dembele popped up with a stunning last-minute strike to secure a 1-1 draw at Lyon and a 3-2 win on aggregate.

Maxime Gonalons looked to have fired Lyon to the 1-0 win they required to advance in the first half, but Dembele scored in the final minute , hammering a 25-yard strike past Remy Vercoutre to set up a meeting with Inter Milan in the next round.

Inter progressed courtesy of a 5-0 aggregate win over Romanian side Cluj.

Fredy Guarin scored twice and Marco Benassi added a late third as the Italians comfortably added to their 2-0 lead from the first leg.

Cluj were forced to play the closing minutes with 10 men following Mario Camora's dismissal.

Shola Ameobi fired Newcastle through from the penalty spot as the Magpies did just enough to see off Metalist Kharkiv in Ukraine.

Ameobi's 15th European goal came after midfielder Moussa Sissoko had been tripped by goalkeeper Olexandr Goryainov and secured a 1-0 aggregate win after the first leg at St James' Park had ended goalless.

Stuttgart eased into the last 16 with a 2-0 victory at Genk.

With the tie delicately poised at 1-1 following the first leg in Germany, goals from Arthur Boka and Christian Gentner saw the Bundesliga side through.
