Rodrigo Palacio snatched an 88th minute win for Inter Milan over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday while Lazio were on the wrong end of some late drama in a 1-1 draw at Panathinaikos.

Napoli produced another poor away performance, losing 3-1 at Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, and Udinese suffered a shock 3-1 defeat at Young Boys where Raul Bobadilla scored a hat-trick.

Liverpool took advantage of Udinese's slip to go top with a 1-0 win over Anzhi Makhachkala.

Palacio headed in a cross from Diego Milito one minute after Partizan's Lazar Markovic nearly scored on the break. The win left Inter and Rubin Kazan, who beat Neftci 1-0, level on seven points from three games at the top of Group H.
