Portugal

Stephen Eustaquio starting for Pacos de Ferreira vs Famalicao

Update:  Pacos go up 1-0 in the 20th minute.  Just assisted the 2nd goal in the 88th minute.

With the win today, Pacos jump all the way up into 5th place which is the final Europa League spot.  This puts them behind only the big 4 teams of  Portugal (Porto, Sporting, Benfica & Braga).  And Pacos had a game in hand in the league with every other team besides Moreierense.

Arfield starts against Falkirk, 7 players rotated.

Yann Fillion makes the step up in Finland from the Ykkönen (second tier) with Ekenäs up to the Veikkausliiga (first tier) with newly-promoted side Oulu for 2021 - believe it's also a club option for 2022.

 

Ottawa-born keeper, put in quite a few games with EIF, in a 1A/1B situation with their second keeper Jiri Koski. Across the pair, it was enough to take the team up to 4th place in the Ykkönen in 2020. Will be interesting to see the keeper duel at Oulu next season (Finnish season starts back up in April, COVID-pending).

 

From a Finnish friend: 

"Expectations: Backup, probably sees 5-7 games in the league. The club wanted a young goalkeeper with reach and the ability to claim crosses as their first-choice is quite short for the position. Fillion's season at EIF wasn't exactly a shining success story and their fans considered the other keeper to have played better, though he got a lot of starts despite reports of mediocre performances."

Eustaquio also picked up a joint league-high fourth MoTM award of the season with his performance today against MFC.

Singapore

[SPL] Jordan Webb (Tampines Rovers) saw the second 45' in a 1-1 draw against Lion City. The single point means Tampines punch a ticket for the 2021 AFC Champions League group stages.

[SPL] Danial Scott Crichton (Young Lions) saw the full 90' in a 2-1 loss to Geylang International.

 

Norway

[ELT] Simon Thomas (Sarpsborg 08) served as the backup for Sarpsborg, with the club finding an 85th-minute equaliser to take a point off Kristiansund who started the day in 5th. The point moves S08 up to 12th, 6 points clear of the relegation playoff spot and 9 points clear of a direct drop with 3 games left to play this season.

[ELT] Sam Adekugbe (Vålerenga) had the start against Stabaek, going 73' in a 1-1 draw. The draw means Vålerenga hold onto 3rd with 48 points and a +13GD. Rosenborg behind in 4th are on 45 points and an identical +13GD but have a game in hand on VIF, while Kristiansund lead the chasing pack in 5th on 44 points. This means VIF will carry a cushion of 4 points into the final 3 games of the season, as they look for a top-four finish that would take them into Europe for next season.

UEFA Europa League

[Group D] 86' and a goal for Scott Arfield today, as his Rangers side fought hard for a 3-2 win over Standard. RSCL took two leads in this one, but Arfield's goal meant Rangers took all three points out of this one, which also books their place in the UEL round of 32.

[Group H] Jonathan David goes the full 90' for Lille, picking up the hockey assist on Yilmaz's goal and drawing both yellows on Čelůstka that took Sparta down to ten men for the final 26 minutes, as Lille punch their tickets to the round of 32 with a 2-1 comeback win over Sparta, having originally gone down to their ten men in the 71st minute. Lille needed two goals in the 80th and 84th from Yazici and Yilmaz respectively to pull through.

[Group L] Milan Borjan had the start for Crvena zvezda, casually pulling out a shutout performance against Hoffenheim, as the Serbian side played to a 0-0 draw against Hoffenheim at home. The single point takes them into the round of 32 as well, as Group L shakes out to Hoffenheim and Zvezda qualifying in 1st and 2nd. Milan also gets MoTM honours for his troubles, after making a number of big saves (6 saves total).

 

All told, a solid night for the CanMNT lads, as all three find themselves awaiting a round of 32 draw in a couple weeks' time.

  • UPDATE: GOAL, Arfield! He makes the same late unmarked run that's been his bread and butter all season, and Rangers go up 3-2 with just under 25 to go.
  • UPDATE #2: Arfield off after 86'. A good night for Arfield - maybe could've been a tad more solid defensively, but made his trademark run for the all-important goal that should put Rangers through at this point.

[Group H] Jonathan David goes the full 90' for Lille, picking up the hockey assist on Yazici's goal and drawing both yellows on Čelůstka that took Sparta down to ten men for the final 26 minutes, as Lille punch their tickets to the round of 32 with a 2-1 comeback win over Sparta, having originally gone down to their ten men in the 71st minute.

I think it was Yilmaz, wasn't it? I believe he had a brace.
