Ronny Deila's side were 2-0 down before the break, courtesy of goals from Ola Kamara and Vegard Forren, before Kris Commons got a consolation goal after the break.

However, Molde restored their two-goal lead instantly, as Mohamed Elyounoussi wrapped up the victory.

Jurgen Klopp will have to wait until the weekend to claim his first win as Liverpool manager, after he saw his side come from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Rubin Kazan.

Villarreal cruised to a 4-0 victory over Dimano Minsk, as Cedric Bakambu grabbed himself a brace.

Napoli recorded a convincing 4-1 away victory over Midtjylland, as Manolo Gabbiadini scored twice, with Jose Callejon breaking the game's deadlock.
