Atletico Madrid 2-0 Monaco: Antoine Grisman the goal as a host of progress

Antoine Griemann scored his fourth goal in five Champions League matches this season

Atletico Madrid qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a dominant domestic victory over Monaco, who fought with Thierry Henry.

Antoine Grizman then made two with a stylish finish.

Radamel Falcao misses a penalty for Monaco against his former club, and Stefan Savic of Atletico sent the second booking of the match to acknowledge the self-destruction.

It was a punishment for Henry whose Monaco finally won for the first time under his leadership in Caen on Saturday. The punishment left, they barely threatened Diego Simeone's well-pierced outfit.

With only one point in five games, they need to complete the group's bottom.

Borussia Dortmund is also in the knockout phase, but their tie at Club Brugge's home club leaves them needing Atletico Madrid to slip into the final match against the Belgians to take the chance to beat the group.

Napoli consolidated the lead of Group C
