The panenka of deliverance for Dries Mertens (VIDEO)

At last ! What a breath of fresh air for Dries Mertens. Frustrated at the kickoff of the Naples meeting at Legia Warsaw for having been put on the bench, the Louvanist took advantage of the little twenty minutes offered to him by Luciano Spalletti. Raised in the 73rd minute when the marker indicated 1-1, the Red Devil was immediately called upon as he took charge, two minutes later, to transform a penalty with a superb panenka. To find another rose from the top scorer in the club’s history, it was still necessary to go back to April 22, it was 196 days ago. This Neapolitan victory was essential in this three-way fight with the Poles and Leicester.

At the Foxes, precisely, Brendan Rodgers decided to trust Youri Tielemans and Timothy Castagne from the kick-off. Despite the presence of the two Devils, the English club had to concede the division which blocks it in third place in the group now led by Naples.

Qualified Denayer, Injured Vertessen

In the other meetings, it goes for Jason Denayer, holder with Lyon during the great victory of Gones against Slavia Prague which allows OL to secure first place in the group and therefore its direct ticket to the knockout stages.

We will also note the tenure of Adnan Januzaj with Real Sociedad during his sharing with Sturm Graz on his lawn.

Less joyful, on the other hand, the exit of Yorbe Vertessen just before the break because of a muscle injury when he had known how to bring danger on several occasions to the side of PSV.
