Bodø Glimt 6-1 Roma

It would’ve come as a shock to a lot of people if Bodø Glimt managed to get a hard-fought victory over Jose Mourinho’s Roma side, but they put on one of the performances of the season, humiliating Roma 6-1, tying for the biggest defeat of Mourinho’s historic career.

Mourinho put out a rotated team, thinking the Norwegian team would be a roll-over, but Bodø Glimt took it to Roma from the offset, scoring two goals in the first twenty minutes, and after going into half-time 2-1 up, they forced Mourinho to sub on his best players to salvage a result.

However, despite bringing on great players like Tammy Abraham, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the lead got further and further away from Roma, with four goals in the second half completing a sensational victory for a small club in Norway over a European giant in Roma.

ABRAHAM TO SCORE, PELLEGRINI 2+ SHOTS ON TARGET AND MANCINI TO BE CARDED @ 25/1

PSV Eindhoven 4-4 FC København

It’s not often a knockout game in a European competition delivers a high-scoring game, but when it does happen it is special, and this game between PSV and København is another contender for game of the season as PSV came back from 3-1 down at half-time to rescue a 4-4 draw.

The scoring started early in the game as 19-year-old Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson took the lead for København just six minutes in the game, and PSV thought they got back into the game after levelling up the score after 20 minutes, but two goals in the next 20 minutes from København gave them a commanding lead going into the second half.

The second half had as many twists and turns as any game this season, as PSV, despite missing a penalty, levelled up the score to make the game 3-3, and looked to be going for a winner, until København took the lead again with around ten minutes to go, and it looked to be the winner, until Eran Zahavi popped up in the box just seven minutes later to make it 4-4 in one of the most dramatic games of the season.

NŠ Mura 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Despite having a population of just over 100,000 people, Slovenian champions, NŠ Mura completed one of the shocks of the season to beat one of the biggest teams in European football in Tottenham Hotspur, despite them starting Harry Kane up top and Antonio Conte in the dugout.

Mura took a shock lead just eleven minutes into the game, with a sensational strike from Tomi Horvat, curling the ball with his left foot into the top corner, giving Pierluigi Gollini in goal no chance of stopping it, and after half an hour, Mura’s hopes of winning were increased as Ryan Sessegnon was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.

Despite being a man down, Spurs kept on pressuring the Mura goal, but Mura stayed strong for most of the game, until the 70th minute, where Kane found a bit of space in the box of the first game, and levelled up the score with a great chip over the keeper.

It looked as if Tottenham were going for the winner and looked the most likely team to score, but with a few seconds left in the game, Mura found themselves on the counter-attack through Amadej Maroša, who went by himself, and his deflected shot got past Gollini to give them one of the most unexpected wins of the season.

Stade Rennais 3-3 Vitesse

Stade Rennais thought they had this group stage game wrapped up, leading the game 3-1 with 15 minutes to go, but two goals in the last 15 minutes from Vitesse, including a 90th-minute equaliser, put the Dutch side back in contention to progress into the knockout stages.

Two goals in the first forty minutes from Gaëtan Laborde, looked to give Rennais a commanding lead going into half time, but a great strike from the edge of the box from Daan Huisman, gave Vitesse hope just before the break.

Laborde completed his hattrick midway through the second half, giving his side a commanding lead with twenty minutes to go, but Vitesse had some fight left in them, with Thomas Buitink halving the deficit, creating a tense final few minutes before a great strike from Loïs Openda in the closing moments secured a great comeback to stun the home crowd into silence.

Feyenoord 3-3 Slavia Praha

With a place in the semi-finals of a European competition at stake, teams usually try and shut up shop in the first leg to not have to come back in the second leg, but nobody told Feyenoord or Slavia Praha this as both teams committed to attacking football from the outset.

The teams went into half time with the scoreline level at 1-1 with Luis Sinisterra giving Feyenoord the lead after ten minutes, but in the closing minute of the half, Slavia Praha got their name on the scoresheet, with Peter Olayinka grabbing a goal from a tight angle.

Slavia struck first in the second half, taking the lead in the 67th minute, but their lead was not long-lasting as Marcos Senesi levelled up the score for the home side a few minutes later, and the Arne Slot’s men then thought they had scored the winner, as Orkun Kökçü’s free-kick crept in at the near post, with just a few minutes left.

With the referee ready to blow the whistle for full time, Slavia Praha had their last chance of the game with a corner, and Feyenoord defended the initial ball in, but, it was then picked up by Yira Collins Sor, whose shot fell into the path of Ibrahim Traore, whose inventive backheel salvaged his side a draw ahead of the second leg.
