Jozy Altidore played the second-half for AZ in a 2-0 loss to Roda JC. The final score was already set before Altidore subbed on with Roda scoring in the 10th and 33rd minutes. Altidore was yellow carded in the 80th minute. Sacha Kljestan went 76 minutes for Anderlecht in a scoreless draw with Germinal Beeschot.

Simeon Jackson scored the winner in the 85th. Jonathan Spector got the start for Birmingham City in a lopsided 4-0 win over Sheffield United.
