Arsenal Thursday night earned a hard fought 1-0 victory at Bodo/Glimt to make it three Europa League wins in a row as they took another step towards securing top spot in group A.

Real Betis, Fenerbahce, Rennes and Freiburg all guaranteed top-two finishes on Thursday, which guarantee them at least a knockout round play-off place.

In Group C, Betis drew 1-1 with AS Roma after a goal from Sergio Canales was cancelled out by Andrea Belotti early in the second half.

However, it was enough for the LaLiga side to secure a top-two position while Roma have a challenging task ahead as they are equal with Ludogorets on four points, having played one game more.

Freiburg made it four wins out of four at Nantes with a 4-0 victory over Moses Simon’s club and are now confirmed to finish in the top two of group G.

 

Uzoho was, impressive against Ronaldo and company but conceded late on

 

Qarabag and Olympiacos fought out a 0-0 draw in Azerbaijan. The Greek side can only aim for a place in the Europa Conference League, awarded to the team who finish third.

Manchester United’s attack led by Cristiano Ronaldo labour’s hard to score the goals they need but were bitterly frustrated by the excellent performance of Super Eagles goalkeeper Francis Uzoho for 90 minutes until Scott McTominay in the third minute of injury time to rattle the net.

Uzoho made over seven world class saves from United’s 34 shots on target but the relentless United attack paid off in added time when the midfielder benefitted from a great work by Jadon Sancho.
