After the games at 6:45 p.m., the Europa League returned at 9:00 p.m. with Stade Rennais in particular, who received Dinamo Kyiv on matchday three of group B. And in this match everything started perfectly for the French club . After some excellent work by Amine Gouiri, it was Martin Terrier who opened the scoring with a sublime shot from the left (23rd). But dominating, Bruno Genesio’s men ended up being surprised minutes later after a mistake by the defense and despite a good intervention by Mandanda. It was Tsygankov, in two stages, who tied the two teams. In the second half, after a clear rise, Rennais finally took the lead. After a poor Ukrainian recovery, the young Gifted spun and did not shake (2-1, 90th). With this success, Rennes remains second but equals points with leader Fenerbahçe.
There was also another French club this Thursday night: FC Nantes. The canary moved on the lawn of Freiburg, current second in the Bundesliga. Favorites, the Germans assumed their condition and took the three points against a Nantes that tried to disrupt the forecasts. Kyereh had opened the scoring (48th) before Grifo sealed his team’s victory (72nd). Antoine Koumbouaré’s men thus concede their second defeat in this group and occupy third place. Because at the same time, Olympiakos sank against Qarabag (0-3).
Arsenal ensures, Betis back down
In the other posters on Thursday night, Arsenal faced Bodo/Glimt. The Gunners continued their impeccable run in this group thanks to a 3-0 win with goals from Nketiah, Holding and Vieira. Mikel Arteta’s men are already leaders with 6 points (and one less game). In the Rennes group, Fenerbahçe beat Larnaca (2-0). Former Marseillais Michy Batshuayi has found the net again and confirms his good form.
Finally, in the Group C clash, Roma were defeated by Nabil Fekir’s Real Betis. The Frenchman left his teammates shortly before half an hour due to injury. After that, the Romans thought they had done the hard part with Dybala’s first goal from the penalty spot. But it was without Rodríguez’s equalizer that allowed the Spaniards not to hesitate too much. And at the end of the game, Luiz Henrique offered three precious points to his team, which remains top of the group. José Mourinho’s formation continues to be third and in great danger.
