Welcome to MatchDay 3 of the 2020/2021 Europa League. What will be a hectic season for some sides has begun with so many goals, unbeaten runs, and surprise results. And the action is set to continue this week as some of Europe’s finest go head-to-head in various pitches on the continent.
If you’re looking for teams that have started on a fantastic note, you have to consider the teams with a 100% record so far. And one of such teams is Arsenal. With five goals scored in two games, the Gunners lead their group and have only Molde – also an unbeaten side – to contend with for the top spot.
Both sides are set to square off twice this month, with the result of those games likely to determine which team will finish the group stage at the top of the table.
In Group D also, Benfica will play their third and fourth Europa League games against a high-flying Rangers side. Rangers have won nine of their last nine in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in their last six. They must now keep the momentum against a Benfica side that has scored seven goals in their last two games.
