|Europa League Wrap: Arsenal, Chelsea And Five Other Teams Qualify For Next Round by queenonyebiri1(f): 12:43am On Nov 09, 2018|
Seven teams clinched spots in the knockout rounds as the fourth match day of the Europa League group stage played out around Europe.
English Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea are joined by Eintracht Frankfurt, Lazio, Dinamo Zagreb, Bayer Leverkusen, and FC Zurich as clubs to reach the next stage with two matches remaining in this one.
Arsenal 0-0 Sporting Lisbon
Arsenal clinched a place in the knockout stage of the UEFA Europa League with two group games to spare after a 0-0 home draw against Sporting that was marred by Danny Welbeck’s injury. The England striker was carried off on a stretcher after appearing to sustain a serious ankle problem. He needed to receive oxygen before he was taken to hospital.
BATE Borisov 0-1 Chelsea
Chelsea also made it through after Olivier Giroud ended his drought by scoring the only goal to lead give the Blues to a 1-0 win at BATE Borisov. Giroud had not scored for Chelsea for six months but he knows what it’s like to net against BATE. Last season, the France forward was on target in both games against the Belarusian champion when he played for London rival Arsenal in Europe’s second tier competition.
Zurich also reached the next stage, together with Bayer Leverkusen after the German side won their encounter 1-0.
Eintracht Frankfurt beat Apollon Limassol 3-2 to advance, while Lazio beat Marseille 2-1 to march into the next round and eliminate last year’s runner-up.
Dinamo Zagreb was another team to progress to the knockout phase after the fourth round of matches.
Ten-man Sevilla won 3-2 at Akhisar thanks to a late penalty, but Anderlecht’s hopes of going through are over.
