Ryan Donk's injury-time winner capped a stunning comeback by Club Brugge, who hit back from 3-0 down to win 4-3 at Maribor and boost their chances of qualifying from UEFA Europa League Group H.

The visitors looked down and out when the Slovenians stormed ahead with Dalibor Volas opening the scoring in the 11th minute and a Donk own goal and a second from Volas making it 3-0 with 68 minutes gone.

But two goals in three minutes from Moroccan Nabil Dirar gave Brugge hope and after Joseph Akpala equalised on 81 minutes, Donk fired home in added time to give his side a famous win.
