FC Viktoria Plzeň got what they came to Portugal for, as they secured a draw against A. Académica de Coimbra to confirm qualification from UEFA Europa League Group B.

Needing just a point to earn their passage, Pavel Vrba's men thought they had all three when Pavel Horváth scored from the spot in the 57th minute, but a late Edinho penalty meant the spoils were shared. The Czech side will play off with Club Atlético de Madrid on matchday six for pole position in the section, with the Spanish team currently two points better off.
