Europa League: Nantes still sunk against Freiburg, Rennes and Betis classified, Arsenal confirms

After the Champions League, the Europa League resumed its rights this Thursday at the beginning of the afternoon for the first wave of this 4th day of the group stage, with two French clubs in contention: Stade Rennais, which travels to Kyiv, and FC Nantes host Freiburg. For their part, FC Nantes, pushed by a very good atmosphere in Beaujoire, had almost been surprised by the German formation and Lienhart, whose head went over Lafont’s goals. And despite Sissoko’s crossbar (11th) and Corchia’s post (20th), Kübler finally opened the scoring for the visitors with a great shot after a bad ball from the Nantes goalkeeper (0-1).

What’s next after this announcement?

The latter saved his family before the break, with his head-to-head victory over Doan (44th). On the way back from the locker room, the Canarians tried to keep the same pace to disrupt a concentrated German formation. Girotto cleared the ball from Höfler on his line, but only delayed the time limit. The incoming Gregoritsch doubled the lead with a nice pivot goal (0-2). Lucescu’s men even took advantage of the rival defensive passivity to widen the gap passing through Schade (0-3) and then Jeong (0-4). Sixth loss for Kombouaré players in their last seven games. They retain a slim chance of qualifying for the final with the tie between Qarabag and Olympiacos already eliminated.

Rennes secures qualification in Poland

Head to Józef-Piłsudski Stadium in Krakow, where Dynamo was forced to host Rennes due to the Russian invasion. The Bretons quickly dominated the match, with Doué (5th) and Bourigeaud (6th, 15th) being the most dangerous in the first quarter of an hour. The hosts also created a few chances (19th, 45+3rd), but the best chance was attributed to Meling, whose shot grazed the left post (29th). Rennes opened the scoring after the break after a corner thanks to Wooh, well marked in his first start (0-1). His friend in defense Theate was not far from imitating him (60th, 62nd). Sulemana could make the break if his shot spins enough to fool Neshcheret (84th).

With this success, SRFC remains second – on goal difference – but retains its ticket to the 16th final, in the same way as Fenerbahce, winner in Larnaca (2-1). In the rest of the games this morning, Arsenal continued their impeccable Europa League with a third success achieved in the group stage, the second against Bodo/Glimt, Saka being the only scorer in the first half. Group C leaders Real Betis were stopped at home by AS Roma but qualified for the final phase. Namesake of the PSG midfielder, young Portuguese hopeful Vitinha scored a hat-trick in 26 minutes but failed to offer Braga all three points against Royale Union Saint-Gilloise. Finally, Feyenoord and Midtjylland left good friends after a prolific draw.
