Sporting Clube de Portugal have their work cut out to reach the UEFA Europa League round of 32 after Glynor Plet's late goal sealed a draw for leaders KRC Genk.

Sporting's opening three games had yielded a solitary point, but despite losing midfielder Stijn Schaars to a red card just before the hour, the Lions' fortunes appeared set to change. Ricky van Wolfswinkel struck shortly afterwards and his goal increasingly looked sufficient to separate the teams, until Plet's added-time header levelled the scores.
