Euro Roundup: Your weekly fix of Euro delights
It’s Halloween, and you know what that means: it’s that magical time between the first and second installments of the Champions League’s group stage double headers.
Whilst Leicester City can seal qualification with yet another victory, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City will all be battling hard to make sure that qualification is in sight over the final two games of the groups.
The Gunners are in the best position to qualify, but qualification isn’t the goal any more – the goal is now to finish top of the group. Spurs are in a similar position in that they are only one point behind Monaco, it’s all to play for there. Manchester City, meanwhile, will probably find it impossible to top their group – Barcelona will still be two points ahead even if Pep Guardiola can mastermind a victory over his club de coeur. Defeat, though, would mean having to negotiate a couple of nervy, must-win fixtures against Celtic and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Their opponents all played this weekend, and if the Premier League is to prove to us all why it really is the Best League in the World, then it’ll have to do its homework on the opposition – thankfully the Euro Roundup is back!
