Substitute Libor Kozák headed an equaliser in the fourth minute of stoppage time to earn a draw for ten-man S.S. Lazio in a remarkable UEFA Europa League game at VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Juan Arango appeared to have won this round of 32 first leg for the hosts with a 30-metre free-kick with two minutes of normal time remaining, but Kozák grabbed his second of the night in injury time to secure the visitors a share of the spoils. In a fantastic match Mönchengladbach were awarded three penalties, scoring two, yet Sergio Floccari added to Kozák's double to give Lazio three away goals to take back to Rome.
