Olympiakos take the lead against Young Boys.Aduriz is just wonderful. He has scored again. Olympiakos concede and Austria Wien score the 1-0.Dzeko is having a great season. 2-1 Roma.
AZ Alkmaar, from 4th place to qualifyingMight put a few squiddly's on them winning it250/1 available More chance than Inter, heh
2-0 Manure. Mata. Game over. But they have been average again.Ahahah! Ibra can't score to save his life I think it's an own goal, not a goal scored by Ibra.3-1 Bilbao and game over. Sassuolo are not used to play in Europe.Astra equalize against Austria Wien. Roma also kill the game off thanks to Perotti.Not over yet in Bilbao. Sassuolo pull one back. Electric final.Dzeko's hattrick and very important lead for Astra.Well-taken goal by Lingard. 4-0.Bilbao, Astra, Alkmaar, Gent, United and Roma all win.
I reckon United will win the Europa League and finish 6th, Jose will gloat about his CL place and European trophy.
Zenit and Shakhtar are favourites, imo.

Just checking the results. I am watching Manure at 6:00 p.m.
Braga - Shakhtar 2-4Konyaspor - Gent 0-1Osmanlispor - Zurich 2-0Paok - Liberec 2-0Qarabag - Fiorentina 1-2Villareal - Steaua Bucarest 2-1
Osmanlispor, Villareal, Fiorentina, PAOK, Shakhtar and Gent are through.
C'mon Zorya! Meanwhile, AZ up against Zenit.
Manure still 0-0. Image if they played out another draw Anderlecht, APOEL, Fenerbahce, Mainz and Austria Wien take the lead like AZ. Maccabi up as well and 2-0 Austria Wien.AZ make it 2-0 and Plzen pull one back.What a hit by Rooney! It's their first shot on target in the whole first half
What a solo by Mkhitaryan! He has finally broken his deadlock.Zenit score. Only 2-1 to AZ now.St.Etienne pull one back and Young Boys are up.2-0 Young Boys, St.Etienne equalize (probably Anderlecht let them score) and AZ score the third.
Decent goal from Mhki
Such a quality player & Mourinho couldn't see.
2-0 Ibra and game over.Fenerbahce, United, APOEL, Olympiakos, St.Etienne, Anderlecht, Zenit, AZ, Roma, Astra, Bilbao and Genk are through.
I am watching Southampton-Hapoel. Saints with some good chances so far. They are literally playing them off the park.0-0 HT. They are fine with a draw, but they should be comfortably up by now.Saints down! They are out atm!Van Dijk equalizes, but it's too little too late. They go home!So the last teams to go through are: Ajax, Celta Vigo, Schalke, Krasnodar, Sparta Prague and Hapoel.
I wanted the Saints to make it through so Im disappointed with that result.
Saints are so pathetic in Europe. Such a disgrace the way English teams perform in the Europa league.
A lot of teams knocking about in the Europa that play in weak leagues where they only have one other real title contender each year, so they can be fresher for what they consider to be their big competition of the season.
e.g. Shakhtar, Olimpiacos, APOEL Nicosia, teams like that
Or they are just better than a team like Southampton.
