The euro zone's economy grew in the third quarter, showing a 0.3 percent in the region's gross domestic product (GDP) on the previous three months and up 1.6 percent year on year.
The figures were boosted by a rebound in smaller countries, including Portugal, which saw its fastest growth pace since 2013.
"GDP growth in the euro area was stable last quarter, and while this report does not carry any details we are confident that the key story was a rebound in domestic demand, which offset a reversal in net exports," said Claus Vistesen, chief euro zone economist at Pantheon Macro in a note.
"Across countries, GDP growth slowed disappointingly in Germany, but growth rebounded in France, and also snapped back in Italy," he added.
France posted a 0.2 percent GDP quarter-on-quarter increase and the Italian economy went up 0.3 percent in the same period.
