He Seville He added his fourth consecutive victory in the group stage of the Europa League to ensure qualification to the qualifying phase when there are still two clashes of the group stage. Those of Lopetegui passed over the Dudelange (2-5) in a match where the less usual acted with great seriousness. In a muddy field, Sevilla's players took it seriously on a historic occasion, since it was the 200th match of the Andalusian team in European competition. Lopetegui made up to eight changes compared to those who played against Atlético de Madrid. I was thinking about next Sunday and the duel of the Sevilla team against Betis in the derby. This triumph in Luxembourg and the victory of Apoel against Qarabag (3-1) make the Andalusians already qualify as first group.

Sevilla dominated the clash from start to finish. At 17 minutes, the Israeli striker Dabbur, who barely counts for Lopetegui, made the first goal of the Andalusians and the first also in his stage as a Sevilla player. The Dudelange noticed the impact and Sevilla swept it. Munir made the second and third goal, this good free kick. Dabbur got the fourth and the Andalusian team approached their biggest win in Europe (1-6 to Pogdorica in the previous Europa League in 2013). In the second half, Munir scored the third goal (the first time he scored three goals in a professional game) and Sevilla relaxed somewhat with the 0-5. He took advantage of the Dudelange, who scored two goals through his best man (Sinani). Sevilla can take the next two matches of the competition as mere training because it is the only team in the entire Europa League that counts their matches as a victory after Arsenal, which also had three wins in three games, tied against Vitoria of de Guimaraes (1-1). In addition, Lopetegui have only received two goals in four shocks played. The Europa League is, without a doubt, a special competition for the Andalusian team, which is always taken very seriously after winning it five times.
Blue and White Vitamin
Sunk in LaLiga, Espanyol lights up in Europe. Without pressure, leader of the group H of the Europa League, the blue and white team thrashed the Ludogorets and already has almost sealed the classification for the round of 16. With goals from Melendo, Lluís López, Matías Vargas, a penalty, Campuzano, Pedroza and Ferreyra, Pablo Machín's team defeated the Bulgarian team, which played with two less players, and stretched its undefeated in Europe to 25.
The bad streak of Espanyol in Spain contrasts with the trajectory in the Europa League. If in LaLiga he adds two goals in six games at Cornellà, in the continental competition he adds seven in two games at his stadium. It did not take even three minutes for the blue and white box to open the scoreboard and after half an hour he had the duel settled. He won 3-0 and the Ludogorets played with two players less for the expulsions of Froster and Goralski. Then, the duel became a generator of self-esteem for the blue and white. Melendo and Vargas had fun in the midfielder, Ferreyra became friends with the goal, while the youth players Pedroza, Lluís López and Campuzano also joined the Espanyol goal festival. Vitamin for Espanyol in Europe.
Suffer the Getafe
He Getafe he had it more complicated in Switzerland against Basel, where he lost 2-1. The Swiss team already won in the first leg and has an important experience in Europe, even in various editions of the Champions League. Getafe tried even with the many changes Bordalás made, but he was harmed in a key play in the second half. With the 2-1 favorable for Basel, Angel scored a goal that would have been the two-way tie in the 86th minute. The forward broke the offside, but the assistant raised the flag. In the Europa League there is no VAR, only from the next phase, and the play could not be reviewed. Basel is the leader of group C with 10 points, followed by Getafe (6) and Krasnodar (6). Cabal advanced on the scoreboard to Basel, tying Mata penalty on the edge of the break. Frei made the second in the 60th minute and Getafe launched in search of a draw. Maksimovic finished off the post in the 72nd minute and Angel's action still arrived, unfairly invalidated by the assistant. Getafe will have to wait to qualify, something that will ensure if he wins in his next two meetings with Trabzonspor outside and Krasnodar in his own stadium.
