Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt helped Royal Antwerp extend their unbeaten run to six and move up to second in the Jupiler Pro League.

Recording a third successive league win, the hosts scored what proved to be the winner against Eupen in the 80th minute thanks to Lior Refaelov’s strike.

Hoedt played the full 90 minutes at left-back for Antwerp, with the visitors also having Jonathan Bolingi dismissed in stoppage time.

In Scotland, Fraser Forster recorded another cleansheet as Celtic dismissed Hibernian 2-0 at Celtic Park.

Goals either side of half-time from Jeremie Frimpong and Odsonne Edouard lifted Neil Lennon’s side back to the top of the Scottish Premiership, two points ahead of bitter rivals Rangers.

Having featured in the 5-0 Champions League defeat to PSG in midweek, Mario Lemina played the first 66 minutes of Galatasaray’s 2-2 draw with Ankaragücü in the Turkish Süper Lig.

Taking a two-goal lead courtesy of Sofiane Feghouli and Younès Belhanda strikes, the hosts conceded twice late on to surrender the additional two points.

In the EFL, Jake Hesketh played the full match for Lincoln as they beat Tranmere 1-0 at home, whilst Alfie Jones and Tom O’Connor featured in Gillingham’s 1-1 draw at Fleetwood.

Finishing the round-up with a win, Marcus Barnes was on target in Easteigh’s 6-1 demolition of Yate in the FA Trophy.
