Europa League - day 2

Mixed results for Spanish sides on Thursday. Betis beat Luxembourg’s Dudelange 3-0 in the early kick-off, although it was not until after the break that Sarabia, Lo Celso and Tello got the goals. Villarreal drew 3-3 at Spartak Moscow, Cazorla saving the draw with an injury time penalty. Ekambi and Fornals had given the visitors the lead twice, but a Ze Luis penalty levelled the first, and strikes by Ze Luis and Melgarejo swung things in favour of the locals late on. Sevilla lost though for the first time in the competition, despite taking a first half lead through Nolito against Krasnodar. Pereyra equalised after the break however, and Okriashvili made it 2-1 for the Russian side with two minutes to go. (04.10.18)
