San Sebastian - Bayer Leverkusen have secured a place in the last 16 of the Champions League when Oemer Toprak struck in a 1-0 win at Real Sociedad in the final round of matches in Group A on Tuesday.

WRAP: Champions League

The Bundesliga side's victory lifted them above Shakhtar Donetsk into second place in the group after the Ukrainian side were beaten 1-0 at leaders Manchester United.

Leverkusen were deserved winners at the Anoeta against already eliminated Sociedad, and midfielder Gonzalo Castro and forward Stefan Kiessling hit the post either side of Toprak's goal four minutes after halftime.

United top the group on 14 points from six games, with Leverkusen on 10 and Shakhtar on eight.

Sociedad, who have scored one goal and conceded 10, have one point in fourth and last place.
