EUROPA LEAGUE 2010 - 2011 GROUP B H MATCHES | RESULTS | ATLETICO DE MADRID 2 ARIS SALONIKA 3 OB ODENSE 1 GETAFE 1

Not a good night for SPANISH FOOTBALL in the two games played of the EUROPA LEAGUE Group matches. Here are the results & the scorers from the already mentioned games.

Short lived joy for Aguero who scored.

ATLETICO DE MADRID hosted Greek side ARIS SALONIKA & needed a win to secure the second Group B spot to move on in the competition. Instead they lost 2 - 3 & have complicated seriously things as they need to win Germans Werder Bremen in their last Group game & Aris draw against Rosenberg. Nothing worst than leaving your fate in the hands of the "Football Gods".

The signs came early as "Spanish" - Greek player KOKE scored in the 1st min from a defensive mistake that would repeat itself later again. DIEGO FORLAN equalized quickly in the 11th min & SERGIO AGUERO put Atletico ahead in the 15th min. Looking good up to here but the Spaniards missed their many chances & in the 51st min Aris was awarded a penalty which KOKE scored. Then the "heavy blow" for Atletico came when LAZARIDIS put in the winner in the 80th min after a series of defensive fumbles beforehand.

The Greeks played their game & congratulations , but Atletico lost it tonight all by themselves.


Stiff night for Getafe - in orange.

GETAFE needed to win their Group H game against OB ODENSE to stay alive, but it finished in a 1 - 1 draw & they say goodbye to Europe. Getafe started well with a 16th min goal from PEDRO RIOS & were going fine. However, they went from more to less as the game went on & missed numerous occasions while the home team grew in confidence & play. The Danes were dangerous in the corners & free-kicks & while Getafe stood firm the "knock-out" punch came in the 92nd min with the equalizer by ANDERASEN.

Football can & is cruel.
