Steven Gerrard's goal against Marseille gave Liverpool their ticket to the last 16 of the Champions League. Inter Milan and Athletico Madrid also qualify while Chelsea couldn't achieve more than a draw against Bordeaux.

Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Inter Milan cruised into the Champions League second round on Wednesday night while 10-man Chelsea and minnows Anorthosis Famagusta must wait and see.
   
Steven Gerrard's goal shot Liverpool through in a 1-0 home victory over Marseille, Atletico beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1, while Inter Milan still went through after losing at home to complete 13-pieces of the 16-team knockout stage jigsaw.
   
Anorthosis must be kicking themselves after throwing away a 2-0 lead at home to Werder Bremen, drawing 2-2, and Panathinaikos shocked Inter Milan 1-0 in Italy in Group B.
   
Group A is wide open after Chelsea drew 1-1 at Bordeaux with Nicolas Anelka on the scoresheet and John Terry suspended for their final match at home to Romanians Cluj after a second yellow card. Roma won 3-1 at Cluj and host Bordeaux in their final match.
   
Barcelona topped Group C with a 5-2 victory at Sporting Lisbon as Spain got a Grand Slam of all four clubs -- Real Madrid and Villarreal are the others -- through to the next phase.
