PSV Eindhoven took a large step toward qualifying for the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League with a 2-1 win against Trabzonspor that was rather easier than it should have been. Strikes from Tim Matavž and Ola Toivonen in the sixth and 12th minute respectively ensured that PSV would take a good result back to Holland, and they won't be too bothered by having conceded. Dutch compatriots FC Twente had a good day as well, with Ola John scoring early in the second half to see of Steaua Bucuresti 1-0. It was hardly a compelling performance, but a win and an away goal are more than welcome for Steve McClaren's side.
Elsewhere, injury-hit Udinese failed to find the net at home against PAOK Salonika despite 13 shots. The scoreless tie sets up what should be a fascinating return leg in Greece, while Wisla Kraków survived a first-half sending-off to level in the 88th minute against Standard Liège in a 1-1 draw. Hannover 96, meanwhile, staged a furious second-half comeback against Club Brugge. Jan Schlaudraff's 81st-minute penalty sealed a deserved 2-1 home victory for the Bundesliga side.
