MADRID - Olympiakos and Bayer Leverkusen reached the last 16 of the Champions League with victories on Tuesday, with either Juventus or Galatasaray waiting to claim a spot after their match was abandoned because of a snowstorm.

Match officials stopped play after 31 minutes in Istanbul, ruling the field was too dangerous to play on. The last hour will be played at a later date.

Olympiakos beat 8-man Anderlecht 3-1 to advance, edging out two-time champion Benfica, whose 2-1 victory over Paris St. Germain was not enough.

Leverkusen won 1-0 at Real Sociedad to finish behind Group A winner Manchester United, which beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a record ninth goal in group play as Real Madrid beat Copenhagen 2-0, while Manchester City rallied to beat holder Bayern Munich 3-2.
