EUROPA LEAGUE 2010 - 2011 GROUP B D H J SPANISH TEAMS RESULTS

EUROPA LEAGUE action tonight with four Spanish Clubs participating in their Groups B, D, H & J respectively. Here is a quick summary & the results of a mixed night for the Spanish teams.

ATLETICO DE MADRID finished their Group B match against German team BAYERN LEVERKUSEN with a 1-1 draw result. Atletico de Madrid put in a great second half to come back & equalize but failed half a dozen chances that could have easily given them the game.

The first half saw a conservative Atletico which saw them later pay when
DERDIYOK scored from a corner messed up clearance in the 39th min. The Germans were playing their best Football at this point which forced Atletico Coach Flores do a double substitution for the second half.

Diego Forlan & Raul Garcia came off for Thiago & Merida to help give more midfield creative play to the Spanish team & it paid off in the 51st min when Merida was fouled in the penalty area.
SIMAO took the ball & equalized in an authoritative manner to push his team on. From here it was all Atletico & they missed lots of opportunities to win the match, especially a Reyes header chance that no one believed he missed. In the end the Germans held out, & at least managed a point away from home, while Atletico must win their next game at Rosenburg if they are to continue onward.

VILLAREAL hosted BRUJAS to win 2-1 in an entertaining Group D game that saw the Spaniards give their best version & keep out the Belguim team in the 2ºhalf of the game. ROSSI scored first for Villareal in the 40th min to see right at the end of the 1ºhalf DONK equalize for Brujas.

Villareal maintained their discipline & scored their second & the winner via
GONZALO in the 51st min to maintain their authority, control & the 3ºpoints.

GETAFE lost away 2-0 to Swiss team YOUNG BOYS in their Group H match. The Swiss deserved the win with better & dominating play with their two goals coming from DEGEN in the 10th & 63rd min of the game.

Excellent victory 0-1 away to BORUSSIA DORTMUND by SEVILLA FC in their Group J clash. Sevilla with a new Coach Manzano went into a German ground which was always going to be a difficult affair as it was proved tonight. Under intense pressure & a somewhat "hostile" atmosphere CIGARINI managed to score at the end of the first half the Spanish winner. Sevilla then did a great job to find a few more chances but more importantly keep out a very determined & stubborn German team.
