Unbeaten Porto had already qualified from Group H but coach Julen Lopetegui opted not to rest his star players, keeping Herrera, Martinez and striker Yacine Brahimi all in the starting lineup.

BATE sits third in the group with one win, four defeats and a goal difference of -20.

Second-place Shakhtar Donetsk was playing Athletic Bilbao later.
