Europa League: Show in Lisbon, failure for Mvogo and Xhakas who recover ground


Benfica and Glasgow Rangers split 3-3 after a crazy match. Swiss goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo must arrive four times behind him at the Eindhoven gate. And Arsenal wins again against Molde.

Loneliest man on the pitch: Eindhoven goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo has been disappointed several times by his top men.

Yvon Mvogo suffered his second Europa League group stage defeat with PSV Eindhoven. The Swiss goalkeeper lost to traditional Dutch club at Paok Saloniki 1: 4. As a result, coach Roger Schmidt’s team in Group E with three points fell to third place behind Paok, who now has five points. Eran Zahavi put the visitors ahead after 20 minutes with a penalty. But after the interval, an own goal by Stefan Schwab (47th), two times Andrija Zivkovic (55th / 66th) and Christos Tzolis (66th) ensured the Greek hosts’ clear success.

Granit Xhaka had a successful night with Arsenal, even though the match was less than optimal for the Londoners. Against Molde, the Gunners remained 1-0 at home until 45 minutes, before Arsenal found football and ultimately won the match with a clear 4-1. Xhaka played from the start and was substituted in the 80th minute when the score was 3-1.

With his 200th goal for Spurs, Harry Kane put Tottenham in the running for victory in a 3-1 (2-0) win at Ludogorez Razgrad in Bulgaria. The international scored in his 300th game for the Londoners in the 13th minute with a header. After their most recent surprising defeat in Antwerp, it was Tottenham’s second win in their third game.

Benfica Lisbon and Glasgow Rangers gave a spectacle: after two opening own goals and a goal from Glasgows Kamara, Rangers were 2-1 after 25 minutes. At this point the Portuguese were only ten players, Otamendi had seen the red card in the 19 ‘. But the home team, for which Swiss forward Haris Seferovic played from the beginning and subsequently replaced, did not give up. With two goals in the final minutes, they were able to recover the 3-1 deficit (Morelos scored in the 51st minute for Rangers). Swiss striker Cedric Itten could not get minutes in Glasgow.

Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen celebrated their second win and good prospects of reaching the round of 16. Coach Peter Bosz’s team won at Hapoel Be’er Sheva in Israel with 4: 2 (2: 2). With his goals in the 5th and 75th minutes, Leon Bailey was the winner of the match in the Leverkusen team. Israeli Or Dadia scored a goal for the visitors with an own goal. Florian Wirtz put the final point in the 88th minute with a 4: 2. Elton Acolatse scored both goals for the hosts (11th, 25th). Werkself will play two of the three remaining Europa League games at home, the next against Be’er Sheva on 26 November.

Disgrace for Ibrahimovics Milan

Hoffenheim also celebrated a victory with many goals: the Bundesliga club beat Slovan Liberec from the Czech Republic 5-0 (2-0) at their home stadium. With their third win in the third game, Hoffenheim are the undisputed leader of the L Group. Munas Dabbur led the hosts ahead with a brace (22nd, 29th) against the heavily weakened Czechs. The three-time Czech champions had to replace 15 players due to the crown. In the second half Florian Grillitsch (59th) scored the 3-0, Sargis Adamyan grew with two goals in the 71st and 76th minutes.

Italian leaders AC Milan suffered a surprising defeat. The team with Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic lost 0: 3 (0: 1) at home to former French champion OSC Lille, who took first place in Group H from AC Milan. The man of the evening was Yusuf Yazici from Turkey, who scored all three goals for Lille in the 21st, 55th and 58th minutes. Ibrahimovic made room for former Frankfurt Ante Rebic after an hour.
