It’s been a very busy evening of Europa League action involving FIVE British teams and below you can read about the best of the action.
Arsenal began their Europa League campaign in style with a 3-0 win over last season’s semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt.
In beating the Bundesliga side, the Gunners did what no club have managed since the 2006/07 season, as the hosts had not lost their previous 16 home games in European competition (W12 D4), since a 1-2 loss to Palermo in the UEFA Cup.
Joe Willock’s first half goal put the visitors ahead in front of a vocal home support, while Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the others after Dominik Kohr was sent off for the hosts in the final 10 minutes.
It ended a three-game winless for Arsenal, whose goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez, was another star performer, denying last season’s semi-finalists.
Manchester United also got off to a winning start but were made to work hard for their win against Kazakh side Astana at Old Trafford.
Mason Greenwood, 17, bagged his first senior goal for the Red Devils in a game which saw a number of youngsters given the nod by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
There was no such success for Wolves, however, as they were beaten 1-0 at home to Portguese side Sporting Braga.
Ricardo Horta scored the only goal of the game.
As for the Scottish teams, Rangers earned three points at Ibrox, beating Dutch side Feyenoord 1-0.
It looked like it was going to be a frustrating night for Steven Gerrard’s men when James Tavernier missed a penalty on ten minutes.
However, a Sheyi Ojo pile-driver midway through the first-half was enough to give Rangers the victory.
Celtic, meanwhile, fought back from a losing position to earn a 1-1 draw at Rennes, with Ryan Christie cancelling out Mbaye Niang’s earlier spot kick.
In what was a tense finish in France, substitute Vakoun Bayo was sent off in stoppage time for a second bookable offence.
Bayo had only been on the pitch for a matter of minutes, having replaced Odsonne Edouard, but Celtic still came closest to winning the game when Christie’s shot was deflected wide in the dying moments.
