    Europa League 2016/17

    Got to love this time of year.

    Kairat Almaty 1-1 Maccabi Tel Aviv.

    Andrei Arshavin for Kairat. Yossi Benayoun for Maccabi.

    Some blasts from the past!

    It would be an Almaty shock if Tel Aviv don't progress from there.
    Hyperbole will destroy the world.

    Entertaining night in the Europa League, with three of the four ties going to extra time and the other decided by the odd goal.

    Ajax dug very deep to pull it out of the fire in Gelsenkirchen with ten men. Apparently, and in keeping with tradition, they have a good young side, mostly 21 year olds or less.

    Cork City, Tottenham, and their almost namesake's conquerors, Genk, finally came unstuck against Celta Viga.

    Man Utd scraped through by the skin of their teeth, comprehensively outplayed for the majority of the first half but missed a host a good chances in the second and extra time. Rojo and Ibrahimovic both went off with knee injuries and appear doubts for the rest of the season. It would be a shame for Zlatan to miss the final in Sweden should United make it.

    Lyon and Besiktas played out a high quality penalty shoot-out with the French side eventually progressing. Besiktas goalkeeper Fabri's mistake in the first leg proving very costly.


    It seems pretty much wide open despite the bookies heavily favouring United.
