Rangers pulled off an unexpected victory against Real Betis, securing their place in the UEFA Europa League knockout stage alongside Sparta Praha, Qarabağ, and Toulouse. Meanwhile, Liverpool faced disappointment in Belgium. Here’s a rundown of Thursday night’s action:

In a tense battle against Real Betis, Rangers came out on top with a 3-2 win, thanks to a late goal by substitute Kemar Roofe. Real Betis, previously undefeated at home this season, fell for the first time, while Rangers celebrated their first away victory against a Spanish side in UEFA competitions.

Toulouse claimed second place in Group E with a 2-1 win against LASK in Austria. Despite struggling domestically, Toulouse found success in the Europa League, including a remarkable 3-2 win against Liverpool earlier.

Liverpool suffered a 2-1 defeat against Union SG, marking only their second loss in 17 UEFA club competition matches against Belgian sides. Union SG, however, missed out on second place due to Toulouse’s late win against LASK.

Qarabağ secured a 2-1 win over Häcken, earning the necessary victory to claim second place in Group H behind Bayer Leverkusen. Häcken finished the season’s group stage without a point, joining the ranks of last season’s fellow Swedish team Malmö.

– Brighton clinched first place in Group B with an 88th-minute winner against Marseille.
– West Ham topped Group A after a well-executed performance against Freiburg.
– Roma won 3-0 against Sheriff, with Romelu Lukaku scoring in his sixth consecutive Europa League home game, but they couldn’t overtake Slavia Praha for the top spot in Group G.
