Europa League: Wolves Draw Against 10-man Olympiakos, Rangers Beaten At Home By Leverkusen

Wolverhampton Wanderers battled back to claim a draw against ten-man Olympiakos in their Europa League last 16 first leg tie which was played behind closed doors.

The Greek side whose owner Evangelos Marinakis revealed he had contracted coronavirus after they knocked out Arsenal in the last round, found themselves with an uphill task after defender Ruben Semedo got sent off after 29 minutes.

But they looked the better side and took the lead in the 54th minute after Youssef El Arabi tapped in from Guilherme.

Wolves were level 13 minutes later with substitute Pedro Neto grabbing a precious away goal ahead of the second leg at the Molineux.

Elsewhere, Wout Weghorst and Viktor Kovalenko missed penalties for Wolfsburg and Shaktar Donetsk respectively as the Ukrainians seized the advantage in the tie with a 2-1 victory in Germany.

Steven Gerrard will have to mastermind another escape away from home after his Rangers side were beaten 3-1 by visiting Bayer Leverkusen at Ibrox.

Super Eagles midfielder Joe Aribo was ineffectual and was subbed off in the 54th minute as goals from Kai Havertz, Charles Aranguiz and Leon Bailey ensured the Germans left Glasgow firmly in the driving seat.

In the early kick-offs, Odion Ighalo scored a glorious opener and set up another in Manchester United’s 5-0 rout of LASK in Austria. Daniel James, Juan Mata, Mason Greenwood and Andreas Perreira were also on target for the Red Devils.

Swiss side FC Basel stunned Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 away, also behind closed doors, as Samuele Campo curled in a 27th minute free kick before substitute Kevin Bua made it 2-0 in the 73rd and then set up Fabian Frei to drill home the third.

An 88th-minute penalty from Bosnia forward Edin Visca gave Istanbul Basaksehir a 1-0 home win over FC Copenhagen in the solitary early fixture which fans were allowed to attend.

Former Chelsea striker Demba Ba missed a pair of gilt-edged chances for the Turkish side before Visca, who hit the post early on, drilled home his spot kick.
