The twenty-four matches played in the second round of the UEFA Europa League gave some big winners and losers. Some teams who had a bad start to the competition made amends.
Stand out matches
Schalke 04 3-1 Salzburg
They might have 0% to the start of their domestic league, but Schalke 04 has a 100% start to their Europa League competition.
Sparta Prague 3-1 Inter Milan
Sparta Prague gave Inter Milan a second win in as many matches in the competition. Inter Milan was marked by the majority as one of the favorites in Group K. If this poor start is to continue for Inter, they might have to go through some more changes in the winter transfer window.
