Gunners draw blank in Italy, but progress

ARSENAL will go into next week's draw for the last 16 of the Champions League despite losing 2-0 in Napoli.

The result left the Gunners, who have now qualified for the knockout stage of the competition for the 14th consecutive season, in second place behind Borussia Dortmund in Group F.

London rival Chelsea also qualified as Group E winner after beating Romanian side Steaua Bucharest 1-0 thanks to Demba Ba's 11th minute goal. Mark Schwarzer (pictured) played for Chelsea and became the oldest Champions League debutant at 41 years and 66 days.

Elsewhere, Celtic's campaign in Group H ended in disastrous fashion after Barcelona's Brazilian star, Neymar, scored a 13-minute hat-trick, the fourth fastest in the competition, in a 6-1 demolition in Spain.

Italian giant Juventus was eliminated after a 1-0 loss against Galatasaray in Istanbul.
