Violent blood crash in the Europa League!
The game at Glasgow Rangers ends for Slavia Prague keeper Ondrej Kolar (26) in the hospital. After a bad kick from Glasgow joker Kemar Roofe (28)!
It’s the 61st minute: Long ball from the Rangers half, Kolar comes out of his box, wants to clear the ball with his head in front of Roofe, who has only been on the field for six minutes. But the Englishman does not withdraw and rushes straight into Kolar with a stretched leg. Roofe hits the goalkeeper with the cleats badly in the face.
Kolar immediately bleeds heavily on his head, his teammates frantically wave the supervisors over. Referee Grinfeld (Israel) shows the Rangers striker red. After several minutes of treatment, the goalkeeper is taken from the field on a stretcher in a daze. For him, the only 18-year-old youngster Matyas Vagner has to play in his first professional appearance.
At this point in time the Czechs are leading 1-0, which would be enough to advance after 1-1 in the first leg. The Scots then decimate even further, ex-Mainz professional Balogun flies off the pitch with yellow-red (73rd). The Rangers are only nine left and Prague is 2-0 up – quarter-finals!
But none of the guests after the horror foul can really look forward to that.
Zlatan-Aus in the giants duel!
With a 1-0 win at AC Milan, England record champions Manchester United are in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. Thanks to world champion joker Paul Pogba (28)!
United coach Solskjaer brings the French midfield star to the second half. United absolutely needs a goal to advance (first leg 1-1) – and the Frenchman less than three minutes to do the job.
48th Minute: A lot of activity in front of the Milan box, the Italians can’t get the ball away in their own fives, Pogba is there, chasing the ball from the left six-yard corner under the roof after clever body deception – 0: 1, the goal of the day!
European Cup final stop for Zlatan Ibrahimovic (39). The Swedish superstar sits on the Milan bench for a long time in the late autumn of his career. Minute – and nine minutes later has the best chance to equalize: Magnificent cross from ex-HSV and Leverkusen star Hakan Calhanoglu (27), Ibrahimovic rises higher than Shaw on the far post, but United substitute goalkeeper Henderson still scratches the torpedo header Out. And throws Zlatan and Milan out.
Bad surprise for Mourinho
A hat trick by Mislav Orsic caused the completely surprising end of Tottenham Hotspur with coach José Mourinho. Thanks to the outstanding midfielder, the Croatians made up for the 2-0 defeat from the first leg in the 3-0 after extra time. Orsic scored Dinamo with his goals in the 62nd and 82nd minutes in extra time, then after 106 minutes and a super solo with his third goal to ensure the decision.
Just a few days ago, Dinamo coach Zoran Mamic resigned after being arrested for fraud. Damir Krznar had replaced him in the dugout.
Arsenal and German keeper Bernd Leno are in the quarter-finals. The club lost 1-0 in the second leg against Olympiacos Piraeus, but after a 3-1 win in the first leg, the English are still one round ahead. AS Roma acted more confidently. The Italians won 2-1 (0-0) at Shakhtar Donetsk and after a 3-0 first leg win in the sum of the two games, they clearly prevailed.
For the Norwegian club Molde FK, which had previously eliminated Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the last sixteen was the end of the line. Molde defeated FC Granada 2-1 (1-0), but was eliminated due to the 0-2 defeat in the first leg.
