Europa League: Arsenal and AC Milan win huge, Tottenham losses the match
Arsenal and AC Milan continued to display an excellent form to win the Europa League, although Tottenham was upset by the defeat in Belgium.
Arsenal and AC Milan will continue to impress in the Europa League this season with a decisive win in the second match of the group stage.
In Group B, Arsenal comfortably defeated Dundalk 3-0, thanks to the goals of Edward Nketiah, Joseph Willock and Nicolas Pepe.
This victory allowed Arsenal to top the table with 6 points, equal to Molde, but rated higher due to the better goal differential.
Along with Arsenal, another British delegate, Leicester City, also claimed the second consecutive Europa League victory this season after beating AEK Athens in the region.
This result lets Leicester and SC Braga share the top of the table as they have 6 points and the sub-index is the same.
In the next match on 6 November, the two teams will face off directly to decide the Group G representative.
Unlike the two clubs, Tottenham was upset to lose 0-1 on a trip to the underestimated Royal Antwerp side.
Lior Refaelov played the part of hero as he scored the only goal to help Royal Antwerp overcome the Tottenham challenge.
AC Milan continued to dominate the Europa League
In Group H, AC Milan continued to outperform the rest of the group with a gentle 3-0 win over Sparta Prague.
Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao and Diogo Dalot took turns to score a win for Milan’s red-and-black-striped shirt band.
This result lets Milan monopolize the top of Group H with 6 absolute points, since in the same match Lille just got 1 point after a difficult 2-2 draw against Celtic.
In the meantime, the two leaders of German soccer had to separate their excitement and sorrow. Hoffenheim had a dramatic 4-1 win over Gent, while Leverkusen lost 0-1 to Prague’s Slavia.
