In Hamburg, Marseille and Shakhtar Donetsk drew 2-2 thanks to a goal equal to the record established by former Arsenal and Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in his 30th Europa League game.

In the 64th minute, Mykola Matvienko tied the score for Marseille, the Ukrainian team playing in their first competitive match in two months, following a defensive blunder by Aubameyang.

Teenage Eguinaldo entered the game at injury time for Shakhtar, defying Iliman Ndiaye’s last-minute belief that he had won the match for the French team.

Aubameyang and Radamel Falcao each have 30 goals in the competition, and the two have led the way since the league’s 2009 reorganisation from its previous name, the Uefa Cup.

Galatasaray took a second lead thanks to Dries Mertens, but Victor Nelsson was substituted for a professional foul shortly after. Shortly afterward, Matej Rynes was sent off for two yellow card infractions; Jan Kuchta then equalised. Icardi scored the game-winning goal from the box’s edge.
