There was late drama at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona as both sides qualified for the round of 32. The visitors started brightly but fell behind to Piotr Zieliński's fine volley (35). Napoli were in control thereafter and La Real's prospects looked bleak heading into added time, until Willian José smashed in an equaliser to secure second place behind their hosts.
Key stat: Napoli have finished first in their section in their last three group campaigns.

Magnus Wolff Eikrem twice gave Molde the lead as the Norwegian side booked their place in the last 32 at their opponents' expense. The visiting skipper's opener left Rapid needing a two-goal win, and while Marcel Ritzmaier briefly restored parity before half-time, Melih İbrahimoğlu's late equaliser was too little too late.
Key stat: Molde will play springtime European football for only the second time – they also reached the last 32 in 2015/16.

Wolfsberg 1-0 Feyenoord

A draw would have been enough to take the Austrian side through, but Dejan Joveljić's header from point-blank range on 31 minutes was enough to ensure they did it in style. Nick Marsman was the busier keeper throughout in Klagenfurt, and though Feyenoord rallied late on, there was no way back.
Key stat: Wolfsberg recorded their first ever home win in the UEFA Europa League group stage at the sixth attempt.
