A late brace of goals from substitute Marek Mintal gave Nurnberg victory over AZ Alkmaar and revived their hopes of joining Everton in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup.

AZ had taken the lead at the EasyCredit Stadion with a strike from midfielder Demy De Zeeuw in the 29th minute, but Mintal struck back with goals in the 83rd and 85th minute to give Hans Meyer´s side their first win of the campaign.

Aberdeen were the beneficiaries as Atletico Madrid clinched their spot in the last 32 with an efficient 2-0 victory over FC Copenhagen in their Group B clash in the Danish capital.
