Olympiacos 1-1 Wolves - Match Highlights

Wolves claimed a 1-1 draw at 10-man Olympiacos in the Europa League thanks after Pedro Neto’s strike cancelled out Youssef El Arabi’s opener.

With the match being played behind closed doors at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus, the game took a while to get going and there was almost the feel of a training exercise rather than the first leg of a last 16 Europa League tie.

 

The hosts dominated possession without forcing any real openings but an early sending off changed the complexion of the encounter entirely.

 

Diogo Jota broke free and got the better of last man Ruben Semedo. Semedo tried to make a challenge and then pull out but ending up tripping Jota and was harshly shown a straight red card by referee Clement Turpin just before the half hour mark.

 

Wolves then started to control proceedings thanks to their numerical advantage but still chances were few and far between until Olympiacos took an unlikely lead early in the second half.

 

El Arabi, Olympiacos’ hero in the previous round against Arsenal, put the ball in the net but it was Guilherme who made the goal.

 

Mady Camara played in the Brazilian who timed his run from deep perfectly to take out the Wolves defence. Guilherme raced into the area and his cross bypassed Rui Patricio, and leaving El Arabi with an empty net to tap into.

 

That goal spurred Wolves into action and Raul Jimenez was denied from close range before Neto levelled matters on 67 minutes.

 

Neto was on target with a low driven free-kick that took a deflection as it somehow slipped through the Olympiacos wall, leaving keeper Jose Sa wrong footed and unable to adjust quickly enough to make a save.

 

Jimenez saw a headed effort saved and then forced another stop from Sa with 10 minutes remaining but Wolves had to settle for a 1-1 draw, although the Premier League club do have the advantage of an away goal ahead of the second leg at Molineux.

LASK 0-5 Manchester United - Match Highlights

Manchester United continued their recent excellent run with a comprehensive 5-0 thrashing of Austrian side LASK in the Europa League.

Odion Igalho, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira were all on target as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 11 games.

 

After Mata had missed two presentable openings in the early exchanges of the round of 16 first-leg clash, LASK goalkeeper Alex Schlager made an excellent save to keep out James’ curling effort.

 

However, it came as no surprise when United moved ahead in the 28th minute, former Watford striker Igalho showing great skill after latching on to Bruno Fernandes’ pass before lashing a left-footed shot home off the underside of the crossbar.

 

United went close to doubling their advantage on the stroke of half time but Harry Maguire could only direct his header from Fernandes’ pinpoint corner over the bar.

 

After Schlager had saved Scott McTominay’s low drive, United made it 2-0 in the 58th minute when James slotted a fine right-footed shot past the LASK keeper – the former Swansea City star’s first goal since August.

 

United ran riot in the closing stages and Ighalo’s shot hit a post while LASK, who knocked AZ Alkmaar out in the previous round, failed to trouble Sergio Romero throughout the match.

 

With eight minutes remaining Mata latched on to Fred’s throughball and fired a left-footed shot into the back of the net to make it 3-0.

 

In stoppage time Greenwood and Pereira added further goals to make next Thursday’s second leg at Old Trafford a mere formality
