NK Maribor came from behind to beat ten-man Wigan Athletic FC and secure a place in the knockout stages for the first time in their history.

Jordi Gómez's penalty put Wigan ahead, but the hosts drew level after Chris McCann had been sent off, Dejan Mezga scoring from the spot at the second attempt. Željko Filipovič's second-half stunner then proved the difference for the hosts, who qualify due to their superior head-to-head record with SV Zulte Waregem, beaten 2-0 home by section winners FC Rubin Kazan.
