SK Rapid Wien ended their UEFA Europa League record losing run with a 1-0 victory over Group K winners FC Metalist Kharkiv.

Whereas Metalist, unbeaten all season in Europe before tonight, had already secured progress in first place, a still point-less Rapid were resigned to elimination – having equalled PFC CSKA Sofia's unenviable UEFA Europa League all-time low of eight successive group stage defeats. However, Deni Alar's early goal ensured ten-man Rapid did not suffer a ninth straight reverse despite a strong Metalist rearguard action.
