Anderlecht make last-32

The Belgians thumped 10-man Austrian champions Sturm Graz 3-0 while Bilbao went through after a 1-0 victory at Salzburg.

Paris St Germain's record signing Javier Pastore gave them a 1-0 win over Slovan Bratislava and last season's top scorer in the competition Radamel Falcao, whose goals won the trophy for Porto, scored in Atletico Madrid's 4-0 drubbing of Udinese.

Last season's runners-up Braga hammered Maribor 5-1 while Larnaca, maybe inspired by fellow Cypriot side Apoel Nicosia's Champions League form, held Schalke 0-0 away, vying with Vaslui's 1-0 home win over Sporting as the upset of the night.

Guillaume Gillet put Anderlecht ahead midway through the first half in their Group L match and when Sturm's Ferdinand Feldhofer was sent off before the hour the hosts pulled away.
The competition's leading scorer, Matias Suarez, took his tally to six with a header after 74 minutes before Tom De Sutter added a third.
