Tim Matavž scored a hat-trick as PSV Eindhoven came from behind to inflict a first European home defeat on SSC Napoli since December 1994.

Assured of second spot in UEFA Europa League Group F, the Partenopei were on course to avenge their matchday two loss to PSV when Edinson Cavani rolled in his competition-leading seventh goal of the campaign. Matavž, however, ensured that the Dutch side bowed out on a positive note, putting the visitors ahead before the break with two close-range efforts and sealing Napoli's first continental loss at the Stadio San Paolo in 15 games on the hour.
