Litex Lovech 1 Aston Villa 3

Aston Villa won against Litex Lovech. That happened in Lovech where they lost with 2 goal difference from Aston Villa and that’s how they was eliminated from the tournament.

Litex started the game well with strong passing, long spells of possession and a good tempo. In the 10th minute of the match they went 1-0 up when Ivelin Popov opened the score line for the Bulgarians from a free kick, beautifully curved into the corner of the net.

Aston Villa began pressuring the host, but the Bulgarians was concentrated. But suddenly a childish error from the goalkeeper Urosh Gulobovich had an irreversible effect on the entire match

After the second goal was scored, there were yellow cards and two red cards for the Bulgarians later. It wasn’t so hard for the Englishmen to score another after Venkov committed a penalty in favour of Astan Villa.

Litex will travel to Villa Park knowing they have to score 3 clean goals, or four, should Villa score one, and with two of their players suspended, this appears to be an insurmountable task. Miracles happen in football but no one is being fooled here. This mountain is too high to climb and Litex can only play for a bit of pride and respect, as surely, they can’t give anything more from the second leg.
