Europa League roundup: Athletic Bilbao hit five, Lazio go through

Sports Mole takes a look at all the 8.05pm kickoffs in the Europa League.

Lazio have progressed to the knockout stages of the Europa League with two games to spare following a 2-0 victory in Rosenborg this evening.

Filip Djordjevic's first-half double was enough to see them maintain their three-point lead at the top of Group G, although Balde Keita's late red card blemished an otherwise impressive outing.

The other game in Group G saw Saint-Etienne move three points ahead of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk with a 3-0 win.

Inaki Williams scored twice for Athletic Bilbao, who thumped Partizan 5-1, while a Raul Bobadilla hat-trick helped Augsburg to a 4-1 victory over AZ in Group L.

A late Moussa Dembele strike moved Tottenham Hotspur to the top of Group J after a 2-1 win at home to Anderlecht, although Marseille will leapfrog Spurs if they win their game in hand.

Serie A leaders Fiorentina moved up two places in Group I as Josip Ilicic's brace saw them emerge as 2-0 victors at Lech Poznan, while Marc Janko and Breel Embolo netted either side of the break to give Basel a win by the same scoreline against Belenenses.

Elsewhere, Sporting Lisbon suffered a shock 3-0 loss at Albanian side Skenderbeu Korce. Rui Patricio was shown a straight red card in the 18th minute and Sabien Lilaj slotted home the resulting penalty to put Skenderbau 2-0 up after 20 minutes before Bakary Nimaga sealed the win after the interval.

All four sides in Group H remain in the same positions that they started matchday four in though, as Besiktas drew 1-1 with Lokomotiv Moscow in an early kickoff.

The top two sides in Group K, Schalke 04 and Sparta Prague, drew 1-1 in the Czech Republic as Johannes Geis's penalty cancelled out David Lafata's sixth-minute strike.

The other game in that group was delayed by 20 minutes as fans threw flares onto the pitch, but Asteras Tripolis held on to their 2-0 lead over APOEL once the game resumed.
