Goal.com Europa League Play-Off Preview: Rapid Vienna – Aston Villa

Rapid Vienna will be looking to repeat their Europa League heroics of 12 months ago when they meet Aston Villa in the same competition on Thursday evening. The Austrians shocked their English opponents by winning through on away goals after a late Nikica Jelevic goal at Villa Park pushed them through after a 2-1 defeat. The striker remains at Rapid, but only just, as a dispute with the club has prevented him from completing a move to Rangers this summer. After finishing third in the Austrian Bundesliga last term, there is little chance of die Gruen-Weissen being underestimated by their opponents this season.

The story is too old to be commented.
