With PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League, coach Roger Schmidt had to accept another setback. The best Dutch football club did not go past 0-0 at AS Monaco, which was supervised by former Bundesliga coach Niko Kovac.
PSV, in which Philipp Max played and Mario Götze was absent due to illness, must fear advancing as third in Group B.
It’s better for Monaco, who were also unbeaten in the fourth game of the current competition. The team around participant EM Kevin Volland and goalkeeper Alexander Nübel leads the table.
German coach Markus Gisdol recorded a respectable success in his second Europa League game with new club Lokomotiv Moscow.
In Galatasaray Istanbul, the Russian club fought 1: 1 (0: 1), Moscow striker François Kamano (73rd) was replaced by Gisdol shortly before the goal.
Meyer and Berisha score for Fenerbahçe
In group D of Eintracht Frankfurt, Fenerbahce Istanbul could rely on his German professionals. At 3-0 (3-0) at Royal Antwerp, Max Meyer (16th) and U21 European champion Mergim Berisha (29th) signed their first victory in the current competition.
Istanbul will probably fight a duel with Olympiacos Piraeus for second place in the standings, the Frankfurters are already well ahead.
This also goes for Bayer Leverkusen, who lead Group G ahead of Real Betis. Leverkusen’s next opponent Celtic Glasgow celebrated a 3: 2 (2: 1) at Ferencvaros Budapest that evening. For the Hungarian club, handled by former Bundesliga Cologne coach Peter Stöger, this is the fourth bankruptcy of the fourth game.
