Manchester United have lived to fight another day but Inter Milan have been knocked out of the Europa League.

Wayne Rooney became Manchester United's record scorer in continental competition in a 4-0 Europa League win over Feyenoord, which kept alive their hopes of reaching the knock-out stage.

Rooney broke the deadlock with his 39th goal in European games, moving one clear of Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Juan Mata, an own goal from Brad Jones and Jesse Lingard ensured the win.

United would have been out with defeat but will qualify for the last 32 with a draw in Zorya in the last match-day.

Three-time European champions Inter Milan were eliminated with a loss at Hapoel Beer Sheva.

Fenerbahce top the table having earlier beaten Zorya 2-0.

Maranhao, Anthony Nwakaeme, from the spot, and Ben Sahar gave Hapoel a famous 3-2 win over Inter, who led in the first half through Mauro Icardi and Marcelo Brozovic.

Keeper Samir Handanovic was red carded in conceding the penalty having previously been booked for time-wasting.

Inter will finish bottom of Group K, topped by Sparta Prague thanks to a 1-0 win over Southampton, with Hapoel and the Saints fighting it out for second on the last match-day.

Schalke defeated Nice 2-0 on goals either side of the break from Yevheniy Konoplyanka and Dennis Aogo, despite Bernhard Tekpetey's late red card, for a fifth win in Group I. Krasnodar will be second after a late equaliser secured a 1-1 draw with Salzburg.

Group D winners Zenit St Petersburg maintained their 100 per cent record by beating Maccabi Tel Aviv 2-0 before AZ Almaar moved into second, a point clear of minnows Dundalk with a 1-0 win in Ireland.

Shaktar Donetsk also kept their winning streak intact by thrashing eliminated Konyaspor 4-0 in Group H with Gent and Braga each still alive after a 2-2 draw.

Roma thrashed Viktoria Plzen 4-1 on a hat-trick from Edin Dzeko to ensure they'll top Group E with Astra Giugiu favourites for second after a 2-1 win at Austria Vienna.

Group F is largely decided with Genk and Athletic Bilbao each through on nine points after wins over Rapid Vienna (1-0) and Sassuolo (3-2) respectively.

In Group J Fiorentina missed the chance to progress by losing a late goal to PAOK Thessaloniki in a 3-2 defeat while Qarabag passed up their own opportunity with a 3-0 reverse at Slovan Liberec.

Apoel Nicosia led at Astana but had Inaki Astiz sent off before Marin Anicic equalized and Djordje Despotovic secured a 2-1 win. Apoel still qualify though, as do Olympiacos thanks to a 1-1 draw at home to Young Boys.

Anderlecht progress from Group C due to a 3-1 win at Qabala with St Etienne joining them thanks to a later goalless draw with Mainz.

Ajax defeated eliminated Panathinaikos 2-0 to top Group G while second-place is up for grabs as Celta Vigo and Standard Liege played out a 1-1 draw.

And Group L remains tight as leaders Osmanlispir, on seven points, suffered a late 2-1 loss at Steaua Bucharest (six).

The Romanians are level on points with Zurich and Villarreal after the other game ended 1-1.
