Aston Villa’s surprising failure

Europa Conference League favorites, Aston Villa are included in the home of everyone’s semi-final match.

The Villans suffered the law of Olympiakos, victims of a triple from El Kaabi (16e29e56e) and a goal from Hezze (67e).

Watkins (45e+1) and Diaby (52e) tried to restart the Birmingham machine – in vain – especially as Douglas Luiz missed a penalty at the end of the game (84e).

Before the return of Piraeus next Thursday, Olympiacos will not have a series option in the Conference League final. Like Fiorentina who at the same time defeated Club Brugge on home soil (3-2).

Sottil (5e), Belotti (37e) and Nzola, in added time (90e+1), allowed the Viola to win at the wire. The Belgians remaining alive thanks to Vanaken (17e) and Thiago (63e) despite the expulsion of Onyedika (61e).
