Europa League Group Stage, Matchday 2


With 24 matches played and 62 goals scored, the best viewing of Matchday 2 in the UEFA Europa League Group Stage was in Lisbon where Vitesse Arnhem shocked the home crowd with a 2-1 win at Sporting CP. Elsewhere, a brace from Fernando Torres saw Chelsea beat highly-fancied Napoli 2-1 in London, and Daniele De Rossi scored a stunning goal as Roma came away from VfB Stuttgart with a 2-1 win.

Wigan Athletic continued their fine début season in Europe with a 1-0 win at home to Montpellier. Captain Emmerson Boyce volleying home from a corner inside two minutes.
