Europa League day three

No defeats for Spanish sides in Thursday’s Europa League games, but then again only one win, Real Sociedad thrashing Vardar 0-6 in Skopje to stay second in group L behind Zenit. Willian José got no less than four of those, sandwiched between Oyarzabal’s opener and De la Bella’s closer. The other teams though were both held to 2-2 draws, Williams saving a last minute point for Athletic Bilbao at Östersunds after the Swedish side had overturned an early strike by Aduríz. The Basques are still third in group J with only two points to date. Later in the evening Villarreal also drew 2-2 against Slavia Prague, the Czechs going two up early on before goals by Trigueros and Bacca made it all square by the break. Both teams are level on five points at the top of group A, the Spaniards having a slightly better goal difference. (19.10.17)
