Following a scoreless draw that was marred by off-the-field activity, Everton get another crack at Lille in a matchup that headlines Thursday’s Europa League action.
In the two teams prior matchup on Oct. 24, the action on the field was far from as frenetic as that off, as Everton supporters scuffled with police during their stay in Lille. With the incident behind them, the two clubs meet on the field once again, this time at Goodison Park, with Lille sitting one point behind second-place Wolfsburg in the group.
Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach are back in action against Cyrpus’ Apollon Limassol, who the German side bested by a scoreline of 5-0 last time out. Trailing group leaders by Villareal by two points, a Monchengladbach victory would go a long way towards making a first-place push while also all but ensuring a spot in the knockout stages.
In addition, hat-trick scorer Harry Kane and Tottenham get another shot at Asteras and Inter Milan takes on St. Etienne, who have neither scored nor conceded through the competition’s first three games. Meanwhile, Boca Juniors takes on Cerro Porteño and River Plate faces Estudiantes in Copa Sudamericana action.
