The Europa League Thread


#2026

Sporting handed Atletico the two goals. Think we can take them, especially in a neutral ground in a final.


#2027

That Griezman though


#2028

Anyone else actually really enjoying this competition now that we are in it and seem to have a chance?

A bit of a relief after getting battered senseless by Bayern, Barcelona and the likes each year in the CL.


#2029

That is what a counter attacking team does; anticipate on mistakes of the opponent. We’re going to walk against a wall if we play them.


#2030

But if you screw your eyes tight, you can see Mustafi doing just that too.


#2031

If Lisbon has better forwards they could haven’t gotten a goal, after all they had more shoots and possession


#2032

Yeah but those two goals they gave away were just piss poor. Yes I can see us doing the same with Mustafi always on the verge of madness. However they were outplayed bar two gifts. We can take these guys, they aren’t that good imo.


#2033

Sporting chairman has suspended 19 first-team players for their league match this weekend. Including Bas Dost and Coentrao.


#2034

Why?


#2035

Because they responded to one of his rants about thursday’s performance on Facebook.


#2036

Unless he’s suspending them without pay, I fail to see what he stands to gain by that.


#2037

If this is true, it seems a silly risk to make. They’re already guaranteed EL football, but they’re only 5 points behind Porto for that second CL place. He surely won’t go ahead with it, with that much at stake?


#2038

Read they are gonna play their youth+few first team players in the league (the ones who didn’t protest against their chairman).


#2039

Let’s hope both the 2 Red Bull teams go through today.


#2040

Leipzig already up.

1-1 Marseille! Great start to the game!

Wow! What a turnaround from Marseille now! 2-1!

What a save from Oblak here!


#2041

Wow 3-1


#2042

Disallowed.


#2043

Any videos of Oblak’s save? According to Twitter, it was amazing…
