Two famous European names met for the first time in San Sebastian, a tie to evoke the love of some of the teams' established stars. David Silva of Real Sociedad scored two wins for Manchester City against Napoli in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League against Napoli, while Fernando Llorente of Napoli&#39 scored three goals in nine Liga games against La Real while playing for Basque rivals Athletic Club .

Real Sociedad coach Imanol Alguacil has described Napoli&#39 as "a strong side with good players I love", but Partenopei boss Gennaro Gattuso may think his team didn't have time to admire the looks after losing 1-0 to AZ Alkmaar&#39. "We took a big hit on Matchday 1," he said, "and we must avoid complicating our path to the Europa League even more."

worth pointing out

Highlights: Celtic 1-3 Milan

Highlights: Celtic 1-3 Milan

• Zlatan Ibrahimović got another chance to become the second oldest goalscorer in UEFA Europa League history as his side welcomed Sparta&#39 (Daniel Hestad of Molde&#39 holds the record with a score of 40 years and 98 days against Celtic&#39 on 5 November 2015&#39). As with many other issues, if the 39-year-old refuses to accept second-best, he will need to score in the knockout phase of next season to break the record; On January 9, 2022, he will be 40 years old and 98 days old.

• Missing his club's opening game against LASK&#39, Harry Kane only scores two goals from the 200th game goal for Tottenham; The most effective goalscorer in the history of the UEFA Champions League could have achieved this goal in Royal Antwerp&#39. Kane&#39's teammate Toby Alderweireld was born in Antwerp&#39 and was once featured in The Great Old&#39's rivals, Germinal Beerschot&#39. A petition for a statue of the defender to be erected in Ekeren, the suburb where he grew up, garnered 800 signatures, but Alderweireld said: "I think all the people [signed]% 80&#39 are my friends."

• Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winner of Arsenal in Rapid Wien&#39 on Matchday 1 and will welcome more goals in his 20th UEFA Europa League match for Gunners as he welcomes Dundalk&#39. Filippo Giovagnoli, the Italian coach of the Irish champions, said: "Arsenal&#39 have better players, better coaches and everything better than us, but this is the challenge. We have to play very heartily, run hard and be a little crazy and brave, but we will try."

• In the coming weeks 'Darwin Núñez' expect to read his name a lot; The 21-year-old Uruguayan, who is reportedly Benfica's most expensive signing to date, arrived in Lisbon from Spanish side Almería this summer and scored a hat-trick in his UEFA Europa League debut at Lech Poznań. “We got it right,” coach Jorge Jesus said just in time. "He will be the best player in the world. Unfortunately I may lose him in the near future." The new Edinson Cavani belongs to the Europa League for now'
