Comfortable wins, shock wins and maiden wins – UEFA.com rounds up the opening night of the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage.

José Callejon claimed the first goal of the group stage after just five minutes, setting Napoli on their way to a 5-0 rout of Club Brugge. Even that result, though, was upstaged by Molde, the Norwegian champions running out comfortable victors against Fenerbahçe in Istanbul despite being level at half-time.

Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund – in front of a UEFA Europa League record group stage crowd of 55,200 – made it ten wins on the bounce thanks to debutant Park Joo Ho's 93rd-minute header. A small piece of history was made in Lisbon too, where Sporting CP suffered a first-ever home loss in this competition, Lokomotiv Moskva ending their record 20-game unbeaten run.

Ajax, meanwhile, twice came from behind to draw with Celtic, last season's runners-up Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk struck late to hold Lazio, and only two of the eight UEFA Europa League group stage debutants – Sion and Midtjylland – picked up maximum points.
