Hannover 96 came from behind for the second match in succession to end Levante UD's 100% record in European competition and leapfrog the Spanish side into pole position in Group L.

With goalscoring opportunities at a premium in a slow start, the first half turned into a tale of two penalties. Karim Haggui pulled down Fanis Gekas, resulting in a red card for the Hannover defender, and Míchel scored his first goal in European competition to give Levante the lead. Szabolcs Huszti restored parity after Vicente Iborra had handled in the box, and Didier Ya Konan's opportunistic strike at the start of the second half proved enough to give Hannover all three points.
