Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko provides a moment of goosebumps in the Europa League. West Ham United, a professional, led his team to the quarter-finals for the first time with his goal in extra time. There are also Glasgow Rangers and Olympique Lyonnais as well as Sporting Braga.
Olympique Lyon, West Ham United, Glasgow Rangers and Sporting Braga complete the Europa League quarter-finals. They are potential competitors to RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt, Barcelona and Atalanta Bergamo. Couples will be drawn on Friday at 1.30pm (live tape on ntv.de).
The record winner was eliminated in the European League. To date, FC Sevilla has won the European Cup or subsequent competition six times. But in the 2021/2022 season, the Andalusians will not lift the trophy. The trip to the English capital, West Ham United, was the last this year. Ironically, Ukrainian star Andriy Yarmolenko scored in the second half of extra time to decide in favor of the Hammers, who tied 0-1 in the first leg in the original time.
Yarmolenko missed two matches in London after Russia attacked his homeland, then returned with a goal in the league match against Aston Villa. Coach David Moyes brought him in in the first half against Sevilla and thanked the Ukrainian for trusting him with a penalty kick in the 112th minute. The last angry attacks by the Andalusians came to nothing.
Red Star feels provoked
Victorious Glasgow Rangers in Dortmund had no problem with Red Star Belgrade, who continues to play in Gazprom’s jerseys. The Scots suffered a 2-1 defeat, but that didn’t matter after winning 3-0 in the first leg. It was warmed up after the final whistle. Rangers professional Conor Goldson and the rest of his team celebrated a place in the quarter-finals, raising the spirits of Serbs who felt provoked by the Rangers defender. It is said that he rejoiced near the curve of the house. Led by Milan Burjan, the Belgrade goalkeeper, a package was formed and referee Istvan Kovacs awarded the goalkeeper a yellow card.
But for Monaco, the round of 16 was the last stop. The team surrounding goalkeeper Alexander Nubel, on loan from Bayern Munich, and former Leverkusen player Kevin Volland managed to draw 1-1 against Portuguese representative Sporting Braga – and that’s not enough after 0-2 in the first leg. Even Monegasques were chasing a 0-1 lead until the 90th minute and it was late when Axel Disasi scored a consolation goal. It was different for Ligue 1 representative Olympique Lyonnais. Without Jerome Boateng, coach Peter Boss’ side advanced to the next round with a 1-1 (1-1) win over FC Porto. They won the first leg 1-0 at the Atlantic Coast.
Leipzig also qualified in the German League to the quarter-finals, after benefiting from the exclusion of its opponent, Spartak Moscow. They were kicked out of the competition after Russia attacked Ukraine.
