Liverpool got the win they needed to progress to the knockout stages of the Europa League as they beat Udinese 1-0 thanks to a 23minute Jordan Henderson strike, his first in Europe.
The three points had the Reds finishing top of Group A, with Anzhi Makhachkala coming second.
Udinese were reduced to ten men, after 80minutes, when Giovanni Pasquale was sent off before a late Antonio Di Natale chance was too high to level the tie.
Having already qualified, a second-string Newcastle United team, featuring goalkeeper Rob Elliott, went down 2-0 to Bordeaux in France.
Given their recent sporadic form it was no surprise to see the Magpies lose, but the game will make Alan Pardew wonder about the depth of his squad.
Tottenham will join the two northern clubs in the Europa League next year after a comprehensive 3-1 win against Panathinaikos.
Jose Carlos Zeca leveled for the Greek side ten minutes into the second half before Clint Dempsey’s header rebounded off the post, and the goalkeeper, before trickling over the line.
Top scorer Jermain Defoe wrapped up the scoring after 83minutes to leave the Londoners top of their group. Chelsea will also join them in the next round after coming third in their Champions League group.
