Lille 1-1 Valencia

Second-half substitute Jonathan Ikone scored deep in stoppage time salvage a 1-1 draw for Lille against ten-man Valencia in Group H on Wednesday night at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

After a goalless first stanza, Denis Cheryshev broke the deadlock for Valencia in the 63rd minute before the Spanish side were reduced to ten men with six minutes remaining after Mouctar Diakhaby got a second yellow card and was sent off.

However, Lille rallied back towards the end and found the equaliser deep in added time thanks to Ikone.

RB Salzburg 2-3 Napoli

Napoli maintained their top position in Group E after edging RB Salzburg 3-2 courtesy of a brace from Dries Martins in a five-goal thriller on Wednesday night at Red Bull Arena.
