Spurs side thriller as Roma survive fear

 The 8 group winners instantly advance to the round of 16. Additional play-offs will then be played before the round of 16 between the 8 finalist teams and the third-placed teams from the UEFA Europa Organization groups.


Roma 2-2 Bodø / Glimt.
Highlight Roma 2-2 Bodø / Glimt.

The Norwegian side were six minutes away from following up their stunning 6-1 success at home to Roma a fortnight ago with victory in Italy before Roger Ibañez responded in the leveler in a desperate late push. Ola Solbakken's sublime rookie curler had given the site visitors the lead before the break and Stephan El Shaarawy responded with a charming strike soon after. Erik Botheim's header then put the site visitors back in the lead, and another famous win was also on the cards before Roger Ibañez stepped in.


Secret stat: Boeheim actually scored 3 goals and also four assists in four group stage outings.


25/11: Roma v Zorya Luhansk, Bodø/Glimt v CSKA-Sofia.


Tottenham 3-2 Speed.

The very first roller coaster game is responsible for Spurs new manager Conte. Tottenham took a 3-0 lead on 28 minutes thanks to strikes from Heung-Min Kid, Lucas Moura and Jacob Rasmussen's own goal. The Vitesse protector quickly scored from the right side, however, and Matúš Bero cut the debts again before the break. Spurs' problems intensified when Cristiano Romero was sent off for a second bookable offense on the hour but the visitors finished with nine men as captain Danilho Doekhi and goalkeeper Markus Schubert were both sent off late.


Secret stat: Child has scored the opening goal under each of Tottenham's last three irreversible supervisors.


25/11: Mura against Tottenham, Rennes against Speed.

Assured of a top-two coating.

Basel (SUI).
Ghent (BEL).
Maccabi Tel Aviv (ISR).
Karabakh (AZE).

The best of the rest.
