What to expect in the fourth round of the Europa League this season?

The fourth match of the Europa League group stage 2020/2021 will soon take place. Here is what to expect in this attractive round.

Lille vs AC Milan

Before meeting Lille in the first leg of the Europa League group stage, AC Milan was the only team in the five European leagues to remain unbeaten. Even including the end of last season, they won 18 and drew 2 in a series of 2 games without losing. Ibra and his teammates topped the table in both the Europa League and Serie A with high-class performances.

But all of the above statistics became meaningless when Lille destroyed them 3-0 on the San Siro pitch. That is also the reason why AC Milan determined to defeat Lille to reclaim the debt. Both teams are in very good form with 6 wins, 3 draws, and 1 loss in the last 10 matches. So this is considered the focus of the fourth match of the Europa League.

However, AC Milan will likely not be able to claim the debt to lose in the first leg. The reason is that in this match, they do not have the service of owner Ibrahimovich.

The Swedish general had an injury in the match against Napoli over the weekend. Losing him, the power of AC Milan is considered to be halved and it is difficult for them to defeat a Lille who is unbeaten in the last 9 home matches

Molde vs Arsenal – Gunners regained their spirits

Arsenal last weekend was held 0-0 by Leeds United in a very deadlocked match. This result plus a 0-3 defeat to Aston Villa in the previous round pushed the Gunners down to 12th place in the Premier League chart. Coach Mikel Arteta and his current students are being fiercely criticized by the fans for these disappointing performances.

So they are in desperate need of a convincing win to calm the fans as well as rebuild their spirits. And the match against Molde tonight in the fourth leg of the Europa League is a good chance for Arsenal to achieve that goal.

Molde vs Arsenal – Gunners regained their spirits

Despite playing badly in the domestic league, when going to Europe, Aubameyang and his teammates still showed a destructive performance with 3 victories in Group B. Including a 4-1 victory over rival Molde at Emirates.

Most international experts believe that the Gunners will win 3 points and officially win tickets to the round of 16 with first place in Group B.

Arsenal has won 3 matches in the Europa League 2020/2021

Before a completely inferior opponent like Molde, Coach Arteta was confident to replace 9 positions in the starting list compared to the main victory of MU a few days ago in the Premier League. Only two names, Leno and Willian, continue to be kicked.

With the superiority of class, Arsenal pressed the opponent’s field from the first minute. However, the chances of the home team players to score are not clear.

Attacking much without scoring, the Gunners received the first goal. In the 22nd minute, after Leno’s kick-up, Molde players won the ball and counter-attacked quickly, ending with Martin Ellingsen’s goal.

Before the end of the first half, Arsenal removed the gauze with a final equalizer. In a counterattack situation, Nketiah intended to cross for Willock to finish the goal, then a guest player from Kristoffer Haugen did the job.

With the equalizer, Arsenal confidently put pressure on their opponents in the second half. In the 62nd minute, the home team finally got the lead, but it was an own goal with Sinyan from Molde.

Before the match ended, Arsenal scored 2 more goals thanks to the work of Nicolas Pepe and Willock. After 2 somewhat lucky goals, Arsenal finally knew the goal to bring about the final victory.

With this victory, Arsenal has 9 absolute points after 3 matches of Group B Europa League and almost set their feet in round 1/16.

Ludogorets 1-3 Tottenham (Group J Europa League)

Scores: Keseru (50) – Harry Kane (13); Lucas Moura (32); Lo Celso (62)

In the third series of the group stage of the European Cup, held at dawn on November 5, while MU received humiliating defeat, Barca, Chelsea, and Juventus all enjoyed the joy of victory.

Entering the match against the underdog Ludogorets, Tottenham only launched Harry Kane on the bench while Son Heung Min was named on the bench. However, that was enough for the London team to apply the match to the opponent.

Even in the 13th minute, after previously missed situations, Kane finally gave himself a goal after an accurate header. This is Kane’s 200th goal in Tottenham’s shirt after 300 matches. Having a Tottenham goal is easier to kick and completely overwhelm the home team. The ball is just rolling on the Ludogorets side of the field.

Tottenham may lose the Europa League place even though it is ranked 6th

Jose Mourinho’s teachers and students hugged each other to celebrate finishing sixth after round 38, which almost means Tottenham will have tickets to the Europa League next season. But wait, there’s still a chance they lost their tickets.

UEFA’s early-season rule is that the Premier League only has a maximum of 7 European Cup slots, of which 4 go to the Champions League and 3 to the Europa League. But remember, the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League are guaranteed a direct entry to the group stage of the Champions League next season.

A maximum of 5 Premier League teams can participate in the Champions League

A maximum of 5 Premier League teams can participate in the Champions League. If a team is out of the Top 4 to win the Champions League or the Europa League, they will join the Top 4 in the Champions League, and England only has 2 places to go to the Europa League.

Because Man City won the League Cup, their Europa League second qualifying place was given to the highest-ranking team in the Premier League without a ticket to Europe, specifically the sixth team Tottenham.

But so far, there are the following teams that are sure to go to Europe next season. They are Liverpool, Man City, MU, Chelsea (Champions League), and Leicester (Europa League). And Tottenham – 6th place team? Not sure. Why? Let’s go into specific scenarios.

At this time, MU and Chelsea were sure to attend the Champions League This is based on their Premier League rankings, so the fact that they won the European Cup did not change. Now it only depends on the results of the FA Cup final and Wolves’ Europa League journey.
