Standard has a true 2-1 victory caught against the Russian Krasnodar in the Europa League. The visitors had the best chances, but a great volley from Renaud Emond and a powerful header from Konstantinos Laifis deep in injury time gave the Rouches an unexpected victory. This is Standard after three game days, together with Seville and Krasnodar on six points.
With Krasnodar met the Standard, the group leader in group J of the Europa League and that was to notice. The Russians had Uros Spajic (ex-Anderlecht) and Brazilian Belgian Wanderson in the team and had in the previous game against Sevilla with 2-1 records. Standard was the next victim will be, and the Rouches crawling in the first half a couple of times through the eye of the needle. The Russians missed up to two times rather schlemielig when Standard goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa floating free-kick is solved.
Under the impulse of a strong Wanderson – maybe a tip for Roberto Martinez? – kept the visitors from Russia also then dominate. A bet the man that even for Beerschot and Lierse came out, it flew centimetres next to the pole. On the stroke of peace was still so far: Petrov found space in the back of the Standard-defense and gave a low, Ari had the 0-1, but for the walk in.
Standard seemed excited, but the second half had barely kicked off, or the people of liège were already equal. And how: Renaud Emond had seen that the Russian goalkeeper Andrei Sinitsyn from his goal came on a long ball, caught the leather and volleyde the thing from a metre or 25 smoothly along the Russian goalie. A stunning goal.
Unexpected winning goal in injury time
Krasnodar wanted to respond immediately, but ran almost immediately in the Liège knife. A kick from Ochoa was completely misjudged by the Russian defence and Mehdi Carcela could with the ball to go. The Belgian Moroccan, and came eye-to-eye with Sinitsyn, but kicked from a sharp angle on the inside of the post. It was about now and again in a wildly exciting second half, in which the Russians angrily went in search of a second goal. Ari was missing, however, up to two times eye-to-eye with Ochoa. On the other side offered Djenepo Emond a chance after a quick counter, but the striker fell limp in the hands of the goalkeeper of Krasnodar.
The Russians did have in the slot, but the goal fell actually on the other side. Deep into injury time headed Laifas a corner kick with a famous arch in the furthest square. Sclessin exploded, Krasnodar sat in sackcloth and ashes. By the victory is Standard along with Seville and Krasnodar on six points. About two weeks following the second leg in Russia.
