Europa League day one

All the Spanish teams playing at home in European competitions won their games this week, and all those playing away drew. On Thursday Villarreal beat Astana 3-1 in the Europa League, substitutes Bakambu and Cheryshev saving the day with late goals after a Logvinenko header had cancelled out Sansone’s opener. Later in the evening Real Sociedad won 4-0 against Rosenborg, two strikes in the first ten minutes by Diego Llorente and Zurutuza getting the Basque team off to a good start. Skjelvik put through his own net shortly before the break, and Llorente wrapped things up from a Canales corner near the end. Elsewhere Athletic Bilbao drew 0-0 at Hertha Berlin, Herrerín in particular making a string of saves to ensure a point for his side. (14.09.17)
