In the Champions League this week, English clubs did well. Both MU, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool won. Following the success of the country teams, Arsenal and Leicester both had simple victories in their group.

At the beginning of the second half, Nicolas Pepe set the score 3-0 for Arsenal.

The most disappointing English club this week is Tottenham. Jose Mourinho’s side lost 0-1 during a visit to Royal Antwerp’s field. Although Gareth Bale started from the beginning but did not leave too many marks. In the second half, coach Mourinho forced both the duo Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, but could not win 1 point in Belgium.

Not only Tottenham is the big man who disappoints in the second round of the Europa League group stage. Bayer Leverkusen also lost 0-1 to Slavia Prague. Meanwhile, AS Roma can only win 1 point after a 0-0 draw with CSKA Sofia at home.
Another representative of Serie A is AC Milan, who still maintains his impressive form at this time. Pioli’s team easily beat Sparta Prague 3-0 at home. They can even win more if Zlatan Ibrahimovic succeeds in the 36th minute penalty.
