Sevilla, Celtic, Rangers edge towards Europa League, Burnley beaten

first_img0Shares0000Pablo Sarabia struck the winning goal for Sevilla in Olomouc © AFPLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 23 – Five-time Europa League winners Sevilla look set for another assault on the competition after Pablo Sarabia’s solitary goal earned a 1-0 away win to Sigma Olomouc in the first leg of their playoff on Thursday.Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers are also well-placed to make the group stages, but Burnley’s first European adventure for 51 years looks likely to come to an end next week as they lost 3-1 away to Greek giants Olympiakos. New Sevilla boss Pablo Machin left hat-trick hero Andre Silva on the bench from Sunday’s 4-1 win at Rayo Vallecano, but Silva came on to make a vital contribution with a defence splitting pass that Sarabia prodded into the top corner six minutes from time.Burnley’s faltering start to the season both domestically and in Europe continued as they paid a heavy price for the sending-off of Ben Gibson on just his second appearance for the club.The former Middlesbrough defender was shown a second yellow card for a handball which resulted in Kostas Fortounis scoring Olympiakos’ third from the penalty spot on the hour mark.Chris Wood had cancelled out Fortounis’s opener before Andreas Bouchalakis restored Olympiakos’ lead.Celtic’s quest to put their Champions League elimination at the hands of AEK Athens behind them got off to the perfect start against Suduva in Lithuania when Olivier Ntcham headed home on three minutes.But manager Brendan Rodgers bemoaned more woeful defending to allow Ovidijus Verbickas to head home an equaliser 10 minutes later in a 1-1 draw.“We gave away a soft goal. That is a real, real concern now,” said Rodgers. “We are not giving away many chances but we don’t defend the set-piece well enough.“We seem to lack concentration. That is a problem for us. And a pride, really, in terms of defending.”Across Glasgow, Steven Gerrard has no such worries as his Rangers side registered a sixth clean sheet in 10 games under the former Liverpool captain in a 1-0 win over Russia’s Ufa.One of Gerrard’s centre-backs even got the solitary goal at Ibrox as Connor Goldson smashed home from close range.Zenit St Petersburg took a commanding 3-1 lead into their second leg against Norwegian side Molde with one of Russia’s World Cup heroes Artem Dzyuba inspiring a late comeback from 1-0 down in the final 20 minutes.Basel edged a five-goal thriller over Apollon Limassol to take a 3-2 lead to Cyprus next week thanks to a double from Ricky van Wolfswinkel.RB Leipzig still have work to do in Germany in the second leg after a 0-0 draw in Ukraine against Zorya.And Champions League regulars in recent years APOEL Nicosia and Ludogorets Razgrad secured narrow 1-0 first leg leads over Kazak champions Astana and Torpedo Kutaisi of Georgia respectively.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
