Unless you’re me, and you somehow have a passing care to give about the dregs and depths of the Europa League involving teams from Macedonia and Norway, then here’s a few pictures of very cute dogs.

Both teams were already eliminated from knockout stage contention, so this game was in fact a total dead rubber, but suddenly became far less dead and rubbery because dogs, beautiful wonderful dogs.

Ultras, a mostly empty stadium, Lord Bendtner scoring a goal, and dogs. Seems like every Europa League game to me.

A reminder: dogs can make boring soccer matches, and basically everything else, much better.
