Lacazette: 'Hard to digest' UEFA Europa League

Lyon have a momentous task at hand as they host Ajax on Thursday in the second leg of the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League.

With Manchester United clear favourites to beat Celta Vigo and reach the Europa League Final, Red Devils fans may have one eye on tonight's other semi-final between Lyon and Ajax. Given that "Jews" no matter played in previous away games LES, it is unlikely they will be able to get even a draw in Lyon.

Out of the four matches in UEFA Champion League both of them are managed to win one each. However, Ajax are a quality attacking unit and coupled with Lyon's inability to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season, we could very well see Ajax score one, if not more on Thursday.

Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traore starred for the Eredivisie club with two goals and an assist, with Arsenal target Alexandre Lacazette unable to make his mark as a second-half substitute.

"Above all, we are disappointed with the way the first leg went". Coach Peter Bosz is delighted, he said to RTL7. Indeed, their issues were all on display, but this team has shown enough this season to be able to challenge Manchester United in Stockholm on May 24.

Oil prices edge up in anticipation of extended crude output cut

China Fires Off Missile In Possible 'Warning' To US, South Korea
Xi said China was willing to handle disputes with South Korea "appropriately" on the basis of mutual trust and understanding. Xi congratulated Moon on his election and the leaders agreed to exchange special envoys as soon as possible, Yoon said.

Dolberg's effort looked to have all but secured Ajax's progression, but two goals in the space of 76 seconds from Lacazette put Lyon ahead at the interval.

Lyon coach Bruno Genesio believes the return of Alexandre Lacazette can help his side stage a miraculous recovery and book their place in the Europa League final.

The Partonopei signed Ajax striker Arkadiusz Milik last summer and could be interested in the player who has stepped into his boots in the Ajax line-up - Kasper Dolberg.

Lacazette confidently slotted in the penalty and, a minute later, scooped in Fekir's pass from the right from close range.

Ghezzal's header deflected in wickedly off the unfortunate Viergever, who received his marching orders soon after for a late lunge on Rybus.
