Liverpool ousted, Barca rolls in UEFA Champions League

Liverpool's nightmare season got a bit worse on Tuesday after Fiorentina's 1-0 win over Lyon knocked the EPL club out of the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool did its part, beating Debrecen, 1-0, but a penalty kick by Peruvian defender Juan Vargas gave Fiorentina the goal it needed to join Lyon in the Round of 16 and relegate Liverpool to the Europa League.

FC Barcelona went from club in danger of being eliminated to first club to advance from its group after posting a 2-0 win vs. Inter Milan at the Camp Nou. Playing without Lionel Messi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Barca still dominated Jose Mourinho's men to move past Inter and Rubin Kazan into first place in Group F. Now Inter Milan will face Rubin Kazan on the final matchday with the winner moving on to the Round of 16.

Here's rundown of Tuesday's scores and some highlights:


Debrecen 0, Liverpool 1

Fiorentina 1, Lyon 0

Rubin Kazan 0, Dynamo Kiev 0

FC Barcelona 2, Inter Milan 0

Rangers 0, VfB Stuttgart 2

Unirea Urziceni 1, Sevilla 0

Arsenal 2, Standard Liege 0

AZ Alkmaar 0, Olympiakos 0


Here are highlights of Barcelona's 2-0 win vs. Inter Milan:
