In a late match of the 3rd day of Group F, the yellow submarine failed to win against the Israelis (0-0).

Good news for Stade Rennais. Resting this week, the Breton club saw, this Wednesday evening, two of its opponents from Group F in the Europa League neutralize each other (0-0). In a late match of the 3rd day, Villarreal conceded a draw on home turf against Maccabi Haifa despite significant domination (17 shots, 5 on target).

The team coached by Marcelino, the former OM coach, validates its qualification for the rest of the competition but misses the opportunity to take first place in the group in Rennes (1st, 12 points). The Spaniards (2nd with 10 points) will go to Roazhon Park next Thursday to compete for the leadership position, synonymous with direct access to the round of 16 of the competition.
