Football: UEFA Europa League Results, Wednesday 1 December 2010

UEFA Europa League football returned last night with 12 group matches – several of which have secured passage to the next phase with a game to spare – taking place, on Wednesday, 1st December 2010.

Teams were in action from groups A, B, C, G, H and I.

Group A

  • Lech Poznan 1-1 Juventus
  • Man City 3-0 Red Bull Salzburg

Polish side Lech Poznan got off to a flying start against Italian giants, Juventus, with a 12th minute Artjoms Rudņevs goal, but Juventus secured a late point via Vincenzo Iaquinta, who scored in the 84th minute to claim a deserved share of the points, as Juve had dominated the shot count.

The result means that a point for Lech Poznan in their final outing, away at Red Bull Salzburg, require only one point to secure qualification to the knock-out round as they sit three points ahead of Juventus on 8 points, with the Italians on 5.

Juve are to face Man City in the final group match, and will be hoping that the English Premier League outfit plays a second string after they secured their qualification with a solid 3-0 home win over Red Bull Salzburg. Mario Balotelli scored twice for the hosts (18 and 65 mins) before Adam Johnson added a trademark solo goal to add a little shine to the scoreline on 78 minutes.

The result means Salzburg are all but assured the bottom place in Group A.

Group B Results

  • Atletico Madrid 2-3 Aris Salonika
  • Rosenborg 0-1 Bayer Leverkusen

Great drama unfolded at Atletico Madrid as they hosted Greek side Aris Salonika in a game of flip-flopping fortunes.

Salonika took a surprise lead after just 2 minutes when captain Sergio Koke scored, before Atletico got themselves first level, through Diego Forlán’s 11th minute strike, then, just five minutes later, took the lead through Sergio Agüero. Scores remained level until the second half, when Aris Salonika got back level with another goal from Koke, this time from the penalty spot.

The visiting fans were sent home delighted, with their side having earned the full three points, after Nikos Lazaridis added the 81st minute winner in what was perhaps an undeserved result, at least statistically: Atletico were on target 11 times while Salonika scored with all but one of their four shots on goal.

The result means that Bayer Leverkusen were able to secure the Group B win with a 1-0 away win at Rosenborg, who will finish the group bottom.

  • Sporting 1-0 Lille

Two 1-0 results in Group C mean that Sporting Lisbon win the group, while AA Gent must ensure they get a result against Lille in their final home showdown with the French club, while no result next time would see Levski Sofia qualify – their loss against Sporting means they are out.

Group G

  • Hajduk Split 1-3 AEK Athens
  • Zenit St Petersburg 3-1 Anderlecht

Two 3-1 scorelines in Group G mean Zenit St Petersburg extend their 100% winning record, while AEK Athens just need a point next time to secure their progress to the next phase.

Zenit’s win over Anderlecht appeared never to be in doubt as Aleksei Ionov got them off the mark on 12 minutes and Aleksandr Bukharov doubled their lead on 65, before Anderlecht threatened a late rally with an 87th minute Kanu goal. Hopes of a fightback by the visitors were short-lived, however, as Zenit substitute, Szabolcs Huszti, added a third for the hosts.

AEK Athens travelled to Hadjuk Split needing a result and they got one courtesy of three second half goals – from Nacho Scocco (pen, 50), Kostas Manolas (60) and substitute Ismael Blanco (81) – before Hadjuk Split scored a 90th minute consolation via Jurica Buljat.
