Heavy rain and flooded terrain delayed the match by an hour.
It was questionable whether they would play at all, but the weather calmed down, so the Montenegrin referee Nikola Dabanović decided to play in agreement with the teams.
The entire match was dominated by the “Yellow Submarine” who routinely came away with a new win, with the scorers being Bacca (4, 52), Alex Baena (71), and Fer Nino (81).
Sivasspor beat Karabakh 2-0 in the second match of this group, and the scorers were Osmanpasa (10) and Kayode (88).
Villarreal leads the table with nine points, Maccabi has six, Sivasspor has three, and Karabakh has no points at the back.
