Destroyed crown jewels and 5 dream goals – the best scenes of the Europa League evening

The most painful goal of the year

Ouch! A goal can hardly be more painful. In the game between Glasgow Rangers and Standard Liège, the guests from Belgium take a 2-1 lead shortly before the break – but at what price ?! Striker Duje Cop ensures with a sprint to the far post that he can use his teammate’s cross.

Unfortunately, the goalscorer doesn’t manage to brake in time and hits the post with full force – one leg on each side. The Croatian immediately indicates that it cannot go on and will be replaced during the break. Even more bitter: In the end, his commitment is not even rewarded with a win, as the Rangers turn the game around and win 3-2 in the end. For the Scots, Cedric Itten will only come on in the 89th minute.

If at first you don’t succeed …

Just don’t give up. That is sometimes the best motto in sport, as Rapid Wien proved yesterday against Arsenal. Although the Austrians are already 0-3 after 46 minutes and the game has already been decided, they earn the consolation goal at 1: 4 through hard work. Four times they try to overcome Arsenal goalie Runar Runarsson and his front men and on the fourth try it finally works.

That’s how the only Swiss team played yesterday.

A dropkick from 20 meters

So, enough of the gates choked in, we want to see a spectacle! For example this box from Bragas Wenderson Galeno against AEK Athens. The 23-year-old carved the leather from 20 meters with a dropkick to 4: 1 in the mesh. In the end, the Portuguese managed to qualify for the knockout phase early thanks to a 4-2 win.

Lacazette can do distance

Magnificent goals, Alexander Lacazette always manages to do that. In Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Rapid Vienna, the Frenchman opened the scoring with a wonderful goal from over 30 meters.

Calhanoglu can free kicks

With three points against Celtic, who were weak this season, AC Milan qualified for the knockout phase. However, the Italians have to turn a 0-2 deficit. Hakan Calhanoglu started the turnaround with a wonderful free kick.

The Turk has already scored 18 free kick goals since the 2013/14 season. Only Lionel Messi (36 goals) was even more successful in this division in the five European leagues.

Hauge doesn’t stop

Another Milanese who scored a wonderful goal. The Norwegian youngster Jens Petter Hauge completes the turnaround against Celtic with the 3: 2 – and how. The midfielder starts to solo, doesn’t let three opponents stop him at once and then sinks the ball in the far corner.

Is that now a penalty training?

Tottenham also makes the leap into the knockout phase before the last match day. A 3: 3 against Linz ASK is enough for the Londoners. The Austrian equalizer only falls in stoppage time and is wonderful to watch. Mamoudou Karamoko gets the ball on the edge of the box and then slips it wonderfully into the mesh.

Perhaps more could have been possible for the Austrians. They lead 1-0 when the guests from England were awarded a controversial hand penalty shortly before the break, which Gareth Bale exploited.

Tottenham coach José Mourinho is definitely not satisfied with the performance of his team. «The result is better than the performance. Some players showed a good game, others were bad, ”said the Portuguese after the game. However, he also has a sense of humor by once again announcing “penalty training” for his team on Instagram. “Training tomorrow, but at 12 o’clock”, it says under the post.

A ball with a twist

Finally, we switch from the beautiful goals to a curious goal. The game between Slavia Prague and Hapoel Be’er Sheva is almost over when Prague’s Abdallah Sima launched another attack on the wing. His ball in the middle is deflected against the post by defender Dudu Twitto and from there the ball has so much spin that it rolls over the line without any further external interference.
