(GSM) – There were no surprises in UEFA Europa League Group L on Thursday as Porto beat Rapid Wien 3-0 while Besiktas earned a small 1-0 win over CSKA Sofia.

Porto took the lead after 26 minutes at O Dragao stadium, with Rolando directing an effort past the opposing goalkeeper.

The Austrians had no reply to that and Colombian Radamel Falcao instead made it 2-0 in the 65th minute. Another 12 minutes later, Ruben added another for a 3-0 final score.

In Istanbul, the match between Besiktas and Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia seemed to be heading for a goalless result.

But the Turkish hosts wanted more than that and finally got what turned out to be the winning goal through Fabian Ernst in the last minute, 1-0.
