Saint-Etienne, unable to beat the Ukrainians of Olexandriya, and Rennes, reduced to nine and beaten by the Romanians of Cluj: this is the record of the third day of the Europa League.
Saint-Etienne, unable to beat the Ukrainians Olexandriya (1-1), and Rennes, reduced to nine and beaten by the Romanians of Cluj (1-0), are last in their group at the end of the third day of Europa League marked by the show of Pepe with Arsenal.
Rennes sees red then black
With two red cards at the start of each period, the mission quickly became impossible for the Rennais against the Romanians of Cluj (1-0)
The exclusion of the Breton keeper Edouard Mendy, after only five minutes of play, has thrown the young Pépé Bonet in the big bath.
And the 16-year-old goalkeeper bowed on the free-kick that followed (9th). Before being guilty of a bad raise, on the action that led to the red card Eduardo Camavinga (46th).
A new and without his revelation of the beginning of the season, Rennes has lost and remains last in his group (1 pt), 5 units of a qualifying spot for the round of 32.
Unable to beat the Ukrainian club Olexandriya (1-1), the Greens are good last of their group (2 pts) but remain three lengths of the first two places.
The men of Claude Puel lacked precision against the goal, like the image of Romain Hamouma (66th, 90th), at a party that will probably burn the spirit of Gabriel Silva.
On the verge of tears after opening the scoring, the Brazilian, who played for the first time in eight months and a rupture of the left Achilles tendon, froze in the same position, kneeling and face in his hands, when he deceived his own guardian by diverting a Ukrainian centre.
The Gunners, pounded by Guimarães, snatched the win against the Portuguese thanks to Nicolas Pépé , whose entry into play (75th) blasted the game.
Two missiles on the free kick (80th and 90th +3), the former Lille, half-hearted since his arrival in London, offered success to the team of Unai Emery who suffered for much of the match .
She was even led 2-1 until ten minutes from the end of regulation time and the beginning of the show Pepe.
This victory on the wire allows Arsenal to retain the lead of the group (9 pts) and rebound after the setback in Sheffield Monday (1-0).
Manchester United assure
The Reds have taken control of their group (7 pts) at Partizan Belgrade thanks to a penalty converted into Serbia by the Frenchy Anthony Martial (1-0), back from injury since this weekend and the derby against Liverpool ( 1-1). A third goal this season for the former Monegasque in just five games. One of the rare satisfactions of the evening for Manchester United, not really convincing.
Stuck in 14th place in the Premier League, MU had not won away since his incredible qualification in Paris in the second leg of the Champions League in March (3-1).
