It has been a nice debut for the Europa League Groups stage! All fine for the Italians and the English teams even if the first ones found it not as easy as it was supposed to. Milan won only 0-1 against an EL beginner team in Luxembourg thanks to El Pipita. Gattuso will not be happy about this result despite the very large turn-over (practically on Higuain and Romagnoli were players from the first team). Lazio won as well but they definitely suffered much more than Milan thanks to a very solid Apoel Limassol which put in great difficulty the Simone Inzaghi team saved AS ALWAYS by his two top players Luis Alberto and Ciro Immobile(Penalty kick). Much easier for Chelsea and Arsenal that proved to be much more solid and confident. Sarri claimed to be happy for the 3 points even if not for the result.He said the team must improve soon to kill the match when needed. The Gunners were strolling all over the Vorskla and only had a sort of 15 minutes black out in the end getting 2 goals. It happens when you are winning 4-0 to switch off for a while so we understand that.Well done to all!
