A trio of second-half headers secured FC Viktoria Plzeň an opening UEFA Europa League Group B victory as they were forced to come from behind against a dogged A. Académica de Coimbra side.

Following a 40-year absence from European competition, it took Académica time to find their feet, but they soaked up intense early pressure before shocking the hosts when Wilson Eduardo finished off a sweeping counterattack. The home side hit the woodwork in response, before second-half strikes from Pavel Horváth, Michal Ďuriš and František Rajtoral rounded off a commanding display.
