The first leg of the Europa League in the 16th round was Sevilla FC’s favorite. In the home game against Rapid team rivals Dynamo Zagreb, the Andalusians celebrated a 3-1 victory.
All four goals from Estadio Ramon Sanchez Bijuan came in the first half. Zagreb goalkeeper Livakovic used Gomez in the penalty area, while Ivan Rakitic (13th) converted a penalty kick with confidence – 1: 0! Mislav Orsik (41st) dominated the best Spanish club game before drawing anywhere in the penalty area.
In the cold mode, the hosts succeeded in responding immediately. Lucas Ocampos (44th) took the lead again shortly after, shortly after Anthony Marshall (45th + 1) converted his first goal of the match in a Sevilla suit to make it 3: 1. The striker, on loan from Manchester United, easily slides a pass from Gomez onto the line.
Digimciti became the hero of Atlanta
In front of their own crowd, Atlanta beat Olympiacos Pierce 2-1 at Bergamo.
The Italians have long set the tone against the Greek top club. The so-called backer is still in the lead: just before the sixteenth boundary, Dickwinho Soros (16th) hits the ball right, and goalie Musso can’t make a low shot to Barry in the right corner.
However, with the resumption, Atlanta defender Ford Digimcity (61st, 63rd) became the match winner. First, the 28-year-old Albanian heads a coupmainer’s corner into the net, then he spotts another corner and turns it 2-1 from a few meters.
The second leg takes place next Thursday (February 24).
