Europa League Fixtures' Results

Lazio 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham could count themselves lucky to draw their last-but-one Europa League match at the White Hart Lane. Hugo Lloris was named man of the match for the string of excellent saves to deny the frustrated Rome side.

Lazio’s forward Libor Kozák had a number attempts on goal but his profligacy meant he was not able to score any of them. Tottenham’s second-choice goalkeeper Lloris produced an excellent display and was also instrumental in keeping Lazio at bay.

After the goalless draw in Rome and Panathinaikos’ 1-0 victory over Maribor Tottenham are two points behind Lazio and two points ahead of Pana. This means that the draw against Greek side in the last match of the Group Stage will be enough for the second-placed Spurs to progress to the knockout round. Meanwhile, Lazio have already booked the place in the last 32.

Liverpool 2-2 BSC Young Boys

This season Joe Cole has made only a handful of Liverpool first team appearances. Yet The Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has decided to include midfielder in the starting eleven for Europa League match against BSC Young Boys. Joe Cole repaid his managers’ faith scoring a goal and putting in a man of the match performance in a 2-2 draw.

Liverpool young midfilder Jonjo Selvey scored the first goal of the game with a header from the close range in the 33rd minute. Argentine forward Raúl Bobadilla equalized with an excellent strike in the 55th minute. After Cole’s goal in the 72nd minute, the Swiss side managed to fight back in the dying stages of the game to earn a draw. The result leaves Liverpool in the second place with 7 points, three points behind the Group A winners Anzhi. Young Boys are in the third spot with the same number of points.

In their last game of the Group Stage Liverpool need to secure a win over Udinese to make it through to the last 32. Should Young Boys fail to gain the victory over the leaders Anzhi, then the draw may be enough for The Merseysiders.

Newcastle United 1-1 Maritimo

Newcastle United is the only English side to guarantee themselves the qualification to the knockout round after 1-1 draw with Maritimo. However the home crowd was rather disappointed with the Fidelis’ equalizer in the late stage of the game.

The Magpies forward Sylvain Marveaux scored the first goal of the game in the 23rd minute with a low strike after an excellent solo run. Maritimo sub Fidelis grabbed his goal in the 79th minute with a powerful finish.

The draw and the Bordeaux’ win over Club Brugge allowed Newcastle qualifying for the knockout stage. The last match of the Group Stage between Newcastle and Club Brugge will decide the group-winner.
