Tottenham, Leicester battle for top spots as final group games hold today
Having already qualified for the knock out stage of the UEFA Europa League, two of the favourite teams for the title, Tottenham and Leicester City, now want to win their separate groups final games.
The other English team , Arsenal have already won their group with 15 points from their first five games. Having done the hard work in the preceding matches, the three English clubs can go into their final Europa League group matches today without pressure.
Europa League matches air live and exclusive on StarTimes football channels from 6:55 p.m.
Arsenal are the only club in the competition with five wins out of five and will be keen to maintain that record in Dublin against Dundalk.
For Arsenal coach, Mikal Arteta, a good Europa League run could be essential as he has come under increasing pressure as results in the Premier League have not gone according to the clubs’ faithful fans wishes.
In Group G, Leicester City are at home against AEK Athens. Like Braga, The Foxes are on 10 points but are ahead of the Portuguese team on the head-to-head results and a victory against AEK will guarantee them first place, irrespective how Braga play in Ukraine against Zorya Luhansk.
Spurs coach Jose Mourinho, who has twice won the competition – with Porto and Manchester United – goes into their final game at home against Antwerp needing his team to beat the Belgian club to overtake them at the top of Group J.
