The third week of Europa League motion delivered on the goal front once more, with a sequence of crackers throughout the 16 group stage ties.
There had been large wins for Roma, Hoffenheim, Leicester and Villarreal as 93 goals had been racked up throughout 24 games, at an common (one for the maths fans!) of nearly 4 goals per game.
