Europa League re-cap

2 min read

The away teams fared well in the Europa League on Thursday night as Man United, Roma and Villarreal all picked up victories.

Marcus Rashford put 2017 winners United ahead in the 31st minute against Granada in Spain before Bruno Fernandes secured a 2-0 victory with a late penalty.

Roma also earned a first-leg lead on their travels after fighting back to defeat Ajax 2-1 in Amsterdam, with the winners of that tie facing United or Granada in the semi-finals.

Ajax took a 39th-minute lead through Davy Klaassen but spurned a great chance to double their advantage when captain Dusan Tadic saw his 53rd-minute penalty saved by Pau Lopez.

That proved a turning point at the Johan Cruyff ArenA as Roma equalised four minutes later through Lorenzo Pellegrini’s free-kick before Roger Ibanez – who fouled Tadic to concede the penalty – snatched a superb 87th-minute winner.

Villarreal were also celebrating a first-leg advantage from their trip to Croatia after beating Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 thanks to Gerard Moreno’s penalty on the stroke of half-time.

The only away team not to win on Thursday night was Slavia Prague, but they still managed to earn a creditable 1-1 draw against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal substitute Nicolas Pepe looked to have snatched victory for the Gunners when he chipped home with four minutes to go, but Slavia responded through Tomas Holes’ header deep into stoppage time to snatch a draw.

The second legs take place next Thursday.

    I think what you posted made a lot of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added something to maybe
    grab a person’s attention? I mean Europa League re-cap – SportsOnly is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news titles to grab people interested.

    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two
    to get readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your website
    a little bit more interesting. scoliosis
