Zorya Luhansk lost the away game against Östersunds; having allowed two goals and scoring none in turn, Yuriy Vernydub’s team suffered a drawback in Group J.
- Östersunds FK – 10 pts
- Athletic Bilbao – 8
- Zorya – 6
- Hertha BSC – 4
One last chance for Zorya is to overmatch Athletic on the last round of the group stage; the fixture is slated for December 7. If Ukrainians win, they will be able to proceed to the playoffs of Europa League – unlike Athletic and Hertha.
Hertha is now in an even worse place: even if they defeat Östersunds, it won’t be enough to finish even second in the group.
