Arsenal, Rangers advance in Europa League
Teenager Bukayo Saka scored one goal and set up another to secure a 2-2 draw for Arsenal at Standard Liege yesterday and lead the Gunners into the next stage of the Europa League.
The result meant Arsenal finished top of Group F ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt, which gave up a late lead to lose 3-2 at home to Vitoria.
However, Bundesliga leader Borussia Monchengladbach surprisingly went out after a 2-1 loss to Istanbul Basaksehir, with Enzo Crivelli scoring in injury time to complete a comeback victory and send the Turkish side into the knockout stages.
Porto, Rangers, Roma, Ludogorets, Malmo, Copenhagen, Getafe and Cluj also qualified for the knockout rounds in Europe's second-tier competition on the final night of group-stage matches.
Malmo won Group B with a 1-0 away victory at Copenhagen, which still joined the Swedish side in the next round.
Getafe needed at least a draw from the last game against Krasnodar to advance from Group C and cruised to a 3-0 victory. Cluj advanced from Group, E thanks to a 2-0 victory over group winner Celtic.
A 1-1 draw with Ferencvaros sent Ludogorets to the next phase from Group H.
Manchester United and Sevilla were among 13 teams to have already clinched a spot in the round of 32. The eight third-place finishes in the Champions League - including Ajax, Benfica and Inter Milan - will also enter the competition at that stage.
The draw for the round of 32 is scheduled for Monday.
