The Europa League is never short on quantity, and there are another 24 games for you to enjoy on Matchday 4.
The action kicks off at various times around Europe this Thursday (Nov. 7), as some of the competition’s top teams look to secure their passage through to the next stage.
Fiorentina, Eintracht Frankfurt, Ludogorets, Salzburg and Tottenham Hotspur are the only teams to pick up all nine points from their opening three group games. A win for each side this week would see them advance to the knockout rounds.
Ludogorets have been one of the surprise packages of the tournament this season.
The Bulgarian outfit, who were only promoted to the top tier of their domestic league in 2010, have notched notable victories against PSV Eindhoven and Dinamo Zagreb in Group B, and they have yet to concede a goal, according to UEFA.
Along with Ludogorets, Eintracht Frankfurt and Tottenham have also kept three clean sheets. According to UEFA, no side has ever gone through the group stages without shipping at least one goal, and all three sides will have an eye on that record in their remaining three pool games.
Spurs aren’t the only Premier League team to have impressed in the Europa League this season. Swansea and Wigan, who are playing in the competition for the first time, sit first and second in their respective groups, and both sides have yet to taste defeat.
Matchday 4's standout fixture sees Dinamo Zagreb travel to Eindhoven to take on PSV after the teams drew 0-0 in their previous Group B clash. The Dutch side will be eager to keep the pressure on group leaders Ludogorets, while the Croatian outfit need a win if they are to keep their qualification hopes alive.
