Europa League: Celta reached the semi-finals before all
GENK – CELTA VIGO – 1:1 (0:0)
Goals: Sisto, 63 (0:1). Trocar, 67 (1:1).
The first match – 2:3.
Crazy Thursday three of the four quarter-finals of the Europa League went into extra time. Only Genk against Celta managed to keep the 90-minute format.
Five goals scored in the first game, hinted at the fact that it is worth to wait for something fiery, but more than an hour the teams have managed to keep zeros on the scoreboard. It is not surprising – the first ball could turn the entire course of confrontation – open an account “Genk” and “Celta” would have to open up and to risk for the return goal.
In the end the Galicians managed to consolidate their advantage after a cool blow Sisto from the penalty under the crossbar. Before meeting with Genk’s 22-year-old Dane in the Europa League scored only fellow countrymen from “Midtjulland”. The Belgians, it seems, too, like a native – he scored home and away.
Trosser almost replied immediately, but the second goal of the owners is still not enough. However, they are unlikely to greatly upset – in the quarter-finals of the Europa League – the best result in the history of Genk.
No record left and Celta – the semi-finals of the European Cup, the Galicians did not get even during the Karpin and Mostovoi.
