Group E: MU offers a final, CR7 scorer

On the last day, Real Sociedad will host Manchester United with first place in the group at stake. Leaders, the Basques won on the lawn of Omonia Nicosia (2-0). Replacing David Silva (injured), hopeful Robert Navarro opened the scoring with a header from a corner kick by Illaramendi. The Spanish Espoirs international (20) then did a lot of work before serving Brais Mendez behind.

At the same time, Manchester United (2nd) confirmed their good form by beating Tiraspol (3-0). Christian Eriksen was omnipresent. He notably sent a corner on the head of Dalot for the first goal of the Red Devils, before being at the origin of the action relayed by Shaw and concluded by Rashford, with a header. New holder, Cristiano Ronaldo was very involved. After having had several chances, the Portuguese scored in two stages, served by Bruno Fernandes. What to relaunch his season in the heart of Erik ten Hag?

Group C: Betis in eighth, Roma in hand

Already deprived of eight players, Betis lost Joaquin and Guido Rodriguez against Ludogorets. But the Andalusian club was able to win 1-0 despite its bis team aligned at the start of the game. Coming off the bench, Nabil Fekir scored the only goal, on a delicious lobed serve from Luiz Henrique. A precious victory which qualifies the Verdiblancos directly for the round of 16 of the competition.

Roma will play at home a qualifying final for the Round of 16 on Matchday 6 against Ludogorets. Back to the wall, deprived of Zaniolo (suspended), the Wolf won in Helsinki (2-1). A header from Abraham, upon receiving a free kick from Pellegrini, allowed him to open the scoring. A twice deflected El Shaarawy shot also ended up in the net for the Finnish side, who had equalized through veteran Hetemaj (ex-Serie A player).

Group F: Roma take the lead, but anything is possible

Corrected in Denmark in the first leg (1-5), Lazio this time took the best of Midtjylland (2-1). Lacking playing time, Brazilian midfielder Marcos Antonio (22) made an error that allowed Isaksen to open the scoring. Milinkovic-Savic, very active, equalized with the inside of the foot, served by a good Felipe Anderson. After failing on the bar, Zaccagni found the Spaniard Pedro (35), off the bench, to rock the game.

Lazio have the same number of points (8) as Sturm Graz. Dominated, the Austrians won in the last seconds against Feyenoord (1-0). Everything is still possible in this very open group, which will see the Italians travel to Rotterdam on the 6th and final day. All four teams can finish with eight units.
