Milan survives bizarre Europa League thriller, hammer blow Weghorst


Wout Weghorst does not play European football this season. AEK Athens was too strong for his club VfL Wolfsburg due to a goal in the last minute. Tottenham Hotspur went crazy with a strong Steven Bergwijn and the thriller of the Europa League play-offs came from Portugal on Thursday evening.

Wolfsburg took the lead against AEK with Weghorst as the basic player due to a goal from Admir Mehmedi. After André Simões’s equalizer, the Greeks emerged as the winner: Karim Ansarifard took care of the dying seconds before the decision, just before the game was to end in extra time.

In London, Tottenham Hotspur was far too strong for Maccabi Haifa. Steven Bergwijn was in shape with two assists, while Harry Kane won a hat-trick. The other Spurs goals were scored by Lucas Moura, Giovani Lo Celso (two) and Dele Alli. Tjaronn Chery, former player of ADO Den Haag and FC Groningen, showed himself with a world goal at Maccabi.

The thriller of the Europa League evening took place in Portugal, at Rio Ave – AC Milan. Goals from Alexis Saelemaekers (Milan) and Chico Geraldes (Rio Ave) resulted in an extension and then penalties, in which Milan took the longest after three (!) Missed match points from the Portuguese.

On the other pitches, FC Basel (1-3 against CSKA Sofia), FC Copenhagen (0-1 against Rijeka) and Sporting CP (1-4 against LASK Linz) surprisingly lost in the play-offs. That is good news for PSV, which is therefore in Pot 1 in the Europa League draw on Friday.
