Wigan Athletic FC marked their first-ever European home game with a 3-1 Group D victory over NK Maribor.

The Slovenian title holders largely struggled to match the 15th-placed team in English football's Championship, conceding first-half strikes from Nick Powell and Ben Watson. However, Tavares's 60th-minute reply enlivened the contest, necessitating a stoppage-time clincher from Powell. If this was a debut to remember for Wigan, less so for Ante Šimundža, new coach of still point-less Maribor.
