KNOWS HIS BUSINESS: At 35, Aritz Aduriz keeps banging in the goals for Athletic Bilbao.

After all Southampton’s dogged dominance, an Inter Milan own goal gifted them a deserved victory which sent them on their way towards reaching the Europa League knockout stage.

The St Mary’s supporters were treated to a proper European night; Champions League winning opposition, a mass confrontation inside Inter’s penalty box, referee controversy going for and against them, a missed penalty and finally a victory that will go down in their history books.

The winning goal was ugly as they come, not that it mattered.

Zenit becomes the first side to advance to the next round after picking up 12 points from their opening four games, though Dundalk remain in contention after Maccabi Tel Aviv were forced to a goalless draw by AZ Alkmaar.

Aritz Aduriz was the standout player of the round as he made history by scoring all five goals for Athletic Bilbao in their 5-3 win against Genk.

The veteran Spain striker, last season’s top scorer in the competition, followed up his first-half hat-trick with two late strikes to become the first player to score five goals in the Europa League.

Result leaves Ernesto Velverde’s men second in Group F with six points, behind Genk on goal difference after Sassuolo and Rapid Vienna drew 2-2 in Italy.
