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.

Titleholders Atletico Madrid chalked up their third straight group stage win, beating Academica Coimbra 2-1, but Athletic Bilbao, last season's runners-up, were left on the brink of elimination after losing 2-1 at Olympique Lyon.  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.
