FC Metalist Kharkiv got the better of a much-changed Bayer 04 Leverkusen side to rubber-stamp first place in UEFA Europa League Group H.

Although both teams had secured a berth in the last 32 on matchday four, top spot in the section remained up for grabs. Metalist are now assured of that honour thanks to second-half goals from Jonathan Cristaldo and Cleiton Xavier, the first the visitors had conceded in this season's group stage.

    Cleiton Xavier (Metalist) scores!
    That is a very classy goal. Marco Torsiglieri cuts in from the right and squares to Taison, who in turn passes to Cleiton Xavier. The adroitest of first-time turns buys the No10 space and a cool finish secures the points.
