Europa League, round of 32, first leg

Good results for Atlético Madrid and Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League on Thursday. Atlético came back from a goal down to beat Copenhagen 1-4, first half strikes by Saúl and Gameiro overturning Fischer’s opener, and Griezmann and Vitolo adding two more in the last twenty minutes. And Athletic won 1-3 at Spartak Moscow earlier in the evening, two goals from Aduríz and one in his own net from Kutepov putting the Basque team three up at the break before Luiz Adriano got one back on the hour mark. Real Sociedad and Villarreal have work to do however, the former being held to a 2-2 draw by Salzburg, and the latter losing 3-1 at Olympique Lyon. (15.02.18)
