Levante UD celebrated their debut in the UEFA Europa League group stage with a 1-0 home victory against Swedish champions Helsingborgs IF.

Former Spanish international Juanfran was the unlikely match winner, the left-back scoring his first goal since rejoining the club in 2010. His 40th-minute strike means Juan Ignacio Martínez's team have an early two-point lead in Group L following the 2-2 draw between FC Twente and Hannover 96 in the other match.
