Napoli defender Salvatore Aronica was sent off for the visitors for bringing down Mohamed Bangura as he had a run on goal.

Two first-half goals from Brazilian Jussie led Girondins de Bordeaux to a 2-1 win at Bruges in Group D, while Newcastle’s 1-1 draw at home to Maritimo in the same group was enough for them to progress.

Bekir Irtegun scored with a bicycle kick to give Fenerbahce a 1-0 win at Olympique de Marseille in Group C, connecting acrobatically after a Cristian corner had been flicked on.

An early goal by Raul Garcia gave Atletico Madrid a 1-0 over Hapoel and a place in the last 32, and Czech side Viktoria Plzen followed them through from Group B by drawing 1-1 at Academica Coimbra.
