The Belgian outfit were set for a win courtesy the Morocco international's early opener but for a late pair of strikes

Mehdi Carcela scored as Standard Liege were defeated 2-1 by Krasnodar in Thursday's Europa League tie.

Liege started brightly with Carcela giving them a lead courtesy his 19th-minute strike.
