Steven Bergwijn was replaced at Tottenham by José Mourinho at half time. At that moment it was already 1-0 for the Belgians. The goal came in the name of Lior Rafaelov, who benefited from a blunder by Spurs defender Ben Davies.
Antwerp is at the top of group J with six points from two matches. Tottenham has three points, just like LASK.
The Austrians were too strong for Ludogorets 4-3. For the Bulgarian team, former Feyenoord player Elvis Manu made all the hits, the last of which from the penalty spot.

Bosz came up with ten men with Leverkusen in Prague halfway through the first half. Karim Bellarabi was immediately red for a flying tackle.
The number four in the Bundesliga nevertheless seemed to get a point out of the fire, especially when Nicolae Stanciu missed a penalty after more than an hour of play on behalf of Slavia Prague. Ten minutes before the end, however, the home team struck through a striking header from Peter Olayinka from a corner.
Because OGC Nice won 1-0 in the same group against Hapoel Be’er Sheva (with the Dutchman Elton Acolatse in the base), all teams in group C are on three points after two games. Leverkusen has the best goal difference.
With Sven Botman in the starting line-up, Lille drew 2-2 against Celtic. The Scots led 0-2 at half time, but the French came back strongly after half time.
In the same group, AC Milan is in the lead with six points. Lille is fourth and Celtic took his first point.
The Italians won 3-0 against Sparta Prague. Zlatan Ibrahimovic assisted Brahim Diaz’s opening goal and then shot a penalty kick on the crossbar. The Swede was replaced at half-time, after which his replacement Rafael Leão and Diogo Dalot increased the score further.
