Edinson Cavani converted a 93rd-minute penalty to consign AIK to defeat in their farewell match at the Råsundastadion and book ten-man SSC Napoli's place in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 with a game to spare.

The final fixture at Sweden's former national arena threatened to turn into an anti-climax for AIK when they fell behind to Blerim Dzemaili's first-half strike. While Andreas Alm's men levelled the Group F encounter a quarter of an hour later through Helgi Daníelsson, the Azzurri, who had Salvatore Aronica dismissed in the 85th minute, eliminated their opponents in added time following Per Karlsson's foul on Cavani.
