Routine for the most part
While the Champions League offered up plenty of shocks this week, it was not the case in its sister competition.
The Europa League usually has it’s fair amount of surprising results, but this week the ‘big’ teams avoided any slip-ups.
The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Sevilla, Valencia and Inter Milan all saw off their opponents with relative ease to book their place in the next round.
Only Bayer Leverkusen’s exit to Krasnodar, courtesy of the away goals rules, can be considered a shock. Routine was the order of the day for the Europa League.
