SSC Napoli 1-1 FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk
Yevhen Seleznyov climbed off the bench to earn the Ukrainian side a share of the spoils in Italy. Rafael Benítez's men looked on course for a hard-fought victory after David López's goal shortly after half-time, and might have added to their lead but could not find a way past the elastic legs of keeper Denys Boyko. With nine minutes left Seleznyov, just off the bench, tapped in the equaliser.
Sevilla FC 3-0 ACF Fiorentina
Vincenzo Montella's team made the early running in Spain but had as much trouble taking their chances as they had handling Aleix Vidal and his free-ranging role as right-back. The 25-year-old opened the scoring on 17 minutes – his first European goal – then claimed a second not long after the interval. Capping a fine night, he then provided the killer pass for Kevin Gameiro to make it 3-0.
