Europa Conference League highlights and round-up: Villarreal, West Ham, İstanbul Başakşehir, Djurgården all progress
Villarreal and West Ham maintained their perfect records and were among four teams to book a top-two spot, along with İstanbul Başakşehir and Djurgården.
A quartet of clubs ensured they would be playing European football in the new year as the 2022/23 UEFA Europa Conference League group stage continued.
The Hammers sealed their place in the knockout stage of the competition courtesy of two first-half goals. Saïd Benrahma struck the opener with a neat free-kick, Jarrod Bowen doubling the advantage soon after with an emphatic finish. Sebastiano Espositos late penalty set up a nervy finish but the Belgian side were unable to find an equaliser.
Key stat: The Hammers have now won seven of their 11 home ties in UEFA competition since moving to the London Stadium.
Fiorentina took a step towards the knockout stages with a comfortable win over Hearts but only after Stephen Humphrys hit the post early on. The Viola responded with goals from Luka Jović, Cristiano Biraghi, Nicols Gonzlez and Antonn Bark before the break. Humphrys did strike after the restart but a Gonzlez penalty rounded off an emphatic home victory.
Key stat: This loss equalled Hearts record European away defeat, matching their 5-1 reverse at Standard Lige in September 1958.
Substitute Nicolas Jackson came off the bench to put the Yellow Submarine through with a late goal in Vienna. The forward tapped in after a Morales back-heel had opened up the home defence. Visiting keeper Pepe Reina had earlier denied Can Keles with an athletic save to tip the ball wide.
Key stat: Jacksons winner was his first goal for Villarreal since 13 August.
• İstanbul Başakşehir, inspired by Stefano Okakas double, made sure of a top-two placing in Group A with a 3-0 defeat of RFS, coupled with Hearts loss in Florence. It was a fourth clean sheet in this seasons group stage for the Turkish side.
• Djurgårdens top-two status was also confirmed after they raced into a 4-0 lead against Gent in Stockholm courtesy of three goals in quick succession either side of half-time. The home side eventually won 4-2 after a second-half rally by the visitors.
• Leaders AZ must wait to confirm at least second place in Group E after going down to Valentin Roberges winner for Apollon in Nicosia. The Eredivisie table-toppers were beaten for only the second occasion in all competitions this term their first reverse since 4 August.
