AC Sparta Praha joined Olympique Lyonnais in qualifying for the UEFA Europa League round of 32 after playing out a mutually beneficial draw with the French side.

A young Lyon team were on course for the club's fifth win in as many Group I matches once teenage striker Yassine Benzia scored his first goal in UEFA club competition a minute into the second half. Though the hosts – now 11 games unbeaten in all competitions – could not add to Josef Hušbauer's swift equaliser, the result was enough to confirm their progress and, in the process, Les Gones as section winners.
