Tottenham skipper Harry Kane scored twice in their Champions League win over Olympiacos

Tottenham Hotspur came from 2-0 down for a 4-2 victory over Olympiacos on Tuesday in Jose Mourinho's first home game in charge for the Premier League side to clinch a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Tottenham were joined by Premier League champions Manchester City, who drew 1-1 with Shakhtar Donetsk, and Real Madrid, who drew 2-2 with Paris Saint-Germain, while Robert Lewandowski scored four goals in just over 14 minutes for Bayern Munich in a 6-0 win at Socceroo Milos Degenek's Red Star Belgrade.

Bayern, Juventus, who beat Atletico Madrid 1-0, and PSG were already through before this week's group matches.

Mourinho, who won the Champions League with Porto and Inter Milan, saw his new charges go 2-0 (Youssef El-Arabi, 6th and Ruben Semedo, 19th) to visiting Olympiacos and he reacted by bringing on Christian Eriksen for Eric Dier in the 29th minute.

Dele Alli scored from close range just before the break to get the home side back in the game.

Harry Kane finished shortly after the interval to level, and Serge Aurier netted in the 73rd minute before Kane headed a fourth four minutes later.

Mourinho told BT Sport 2: "First thing I want to say is to do publicly what I did in the dressing room and that is to apologise to Eric Dier.

"It was not because Eric was playing badly. It was because the team needed a different solution."

England striker Kane became the fastest player to score 20 goals in Champions League history, reaching the tally in 24 games, two quicker than the previous record held by Juventus forward Alessandro del Piero.

"Not a bad player to beat," Kane told BT Sport. "It was about qualifying, no matter how we did it but we had to win and we did that. We can enjoy it and try and deep the momentum for Saturday (at home to Bournemouth)."

Tottenham will finish second in Group B, where Bayern Munich made sure of top spot by cruising to a six-goal victory in Belgrade for a fifth win in five games.

Leon Goretzka headed Bayern ahead before Lewandowski scored from the penalty spot after the break and then bagged three more to take his CL tally this season to 10 before Corentin Tolisso completed the rout.

Thirteen-time European champions Real Madrid were assured of progress as a result of the earlier 1-1 draw between Galatasaray and Bruges in Group A.

Real were then held 2-2 by PSG after squandering a two-goal lead, a result which ensures top spot for the French champions.

A Karim Benzema brace in each half put Real ahead but Kylian Mbappe netted in the 81st minute for PSG and Pablo Sarabia levelled two minutes later shortly after coming off the bench.

In Turin, Paulo Dybala's direct free-kick gave Juventus a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid to secure top spot in Group D and keep Bayer Leverkusen's hopes of progressing alive.

Leverkusen, who now have a home match against Juventus, won 2-0 win at Lokomotiv Moscow thanks to an own goal from Rifat Zhemaletdinov and a Sven Bender volley.

Manchester City were held 1-1 at home by Shakhtar Donetsk but can't be caught at the top of Group C. Ilkay Guendogan's opener in the second half was cancelled out by substitute Manor Solomon.

Atalanta meanwhile secured their first Champions League win by beating Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 to keep their hopes in the group alive.
