EUROPA LEAGUE AS THE GUNNERS ARE STUNNED
By Simon Kamau
Arsenal (Gunners) were surprised in their visit to France in the 1st leg tie against Rennes loosing horribly.
Unai Emery’s men scored first through Alex Iwobi but later they were reduced to 10 men when everything went sideways for the West Londoners conceding 2 goals including a Nacho Monreal own goal.
Arsenal are now left with a great task to overturn a 3-1 loss when they host Rennes next week at Emirates in their Europa League return leg match.
Chelsea who are also in this competition went on to stamp a 3-0 win against Ukraine’s side Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge courtesy of goals from Pedro, Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
In other matches played last night:
Napoli 3 – 0 Red Bull
Sevilla 2 – 2 Slavia Praha
Zenit St Petersburg 1 – 3 Villarreal
Dinamo Zagreb 1 – 0 Benfica
Valencia 2 – 0 FC Krasnodar
Eintracht 0 – 0 Inter Milan
The second leg of these fixtures are slated for next week Thursday to see who qualifies for the Europa League last 8
