Europa League Group Stage, Matchday 5

europa-league-540

Twelve more clubs have secured progression to the last 32 of the Europa League after Matchday Five of the Group Stage, though holders Montpellier are yet to ensure their place in the next round.

CSKA Moscow and Real Sociedad both won in Group A to go through, and Sporting Lisbon’s Group B win sees them and Vitesse Arnhem qualify. In Group D, Panathinaikos beat Ajax to progress, and Chelsea’s Group E win over Fürth offers them the same luxury.

Shaktar Donetsk and Bayer Leverkusen drew 1-1 to see the hosts through in Group F, and the visitors will progress with a point on Matchday Six. Athletic Bilbao won their Group H match to progress, as did Fiorentina in Group I. The two winning sides in group J – Bordeaux and Valencia – qalify as a result, and Atletico Madrid go through from Group L after a 6-0 win at Sheriff Tiraspol.

The sides join AS Roma and Wigan Athletic as the fourteen confirmed teams through. Ten more places plus the eight teams dropping from the Champions League (including Bayern Munich) will make up the last 32. Five sides remain without a point. Of those, Vorskla Poltava (Group G) and PAOK Salonika (Group H) are yet to score.
