Hapoel Be'er stun Inter Milan in Europa

Press AssociationPress Association 24/11/2016

Ben Sahar's stoppage-time winner has completed a 3-2 come-from-behind win for Hapoel Be'er Sheva which sent Inter Milan out of the Europa League but left the rest of Group K wide open.

First-half goals from Mauro Icardi and Marcelo Brozovic put Inter in control in Israel, but Lucio Maranhao gave Hapoel a second-half lifeline before Anthony Nwakaeme converted from the penalty spot after Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic was sent off.

The result sends Inter out, while Hapoel will head to St Mary's for a winner-takes-all battle with Southampton.

The Saints lost 1-0 in Prague as Sparta wrapped up top spot in the group.

Anderlecht and Krasnodar got the results they needed to advance in the early kick-offs.

Anderlecht beat Group C whipping boys Gabala 3-1 in Baku, with Rashad Eyubov sent off late on for the hosts.

A 1-1 draw with Salzburg was enough for Krasnodar thanks to Nice's 2-0 loss to Group I leaders Schalke.

Several others passed up their opportunities.

A win for either Celta Vigo or Standard Liege in their head-to-head clash would have sent the victors through from Group G, but it finished 1-1 as Kostas Laifis levelled for Standard with nine minutes left.

Ajax made sure of topping the group with a 2-0 victory over winless Panathinaikos, having handed European debuts to four teenagers.

APOEL could have advanced with victory but instead lost 2-1 to Astana.

Braga also knew a win would do, but they were held to a 2-2 draw by Gent, with all four goals coming in the first half.

Group L is still open too with only one point separating leaders Osmanlispor from the other three in the group.

Steaua Bucharest beat the group leaders 2-1, while Villarreal were held to a 1-1 draw at Zurich.

PAOK's stoppage-time goal muddied the picture in Group J.

Fiorentina would have advanced with a draw but Garry Rodrigues struck in the third minute of time added on to deny them.

Liberec needed to win to stay alive and duly beat Qarabag 3-0, so all four teams have options going into the final match.

Fenerbahce's comfortable 2-0 win over the 10 men of Zorya kept the pressure on Manchester United, who needed to beat Feyenoord in the late fixtures to stay alive.

Zenit St Petersburg, already through, continued their march in Group D with a 2-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

Group H winners Shakhtar Donetsk enjoyed a 4-0 rout of Konyaspor.
