AaB Aalborg and FC Copenhagen both secured vital points in difficult Europa League fixtures last night.

AaB enjoyed the best evening, beating Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev 3-0 at home thanks to an early strike by Thomas Enevoldsen and a double from Nicolaj Thomsen.

The win keeps AaB in third in Group J, but on six points, the same as Kiev and Steaua Bucharest, who beat bottom-feeders Rio Ave 2-1.

Another injury time fracas
FC Copenhagen looked poised to have a similarly spectacular night after young midfielder Daniel Amartey volleyed home into the top corner from 25 metres out with a minute to go to give the Lions a 1-0 lead away at Club Brugge.

But for the second straight Europa League match, FCK conceded deep into injury time as the Belgians rescued a point, keeping them ahead of the Danes in the Group B table.

The draw means that FCK sit third with four points, one points behind Brugge and three behind leaders Torino, who beat bottom side HJK Helsinki 2-0 in Italy.

In the next round of games, FCK take on Brugge at home at Parken on November 6, while Aalborg have a difficult trip to Kiev to look forward to.
