Europa League: Aris Salonika 1-0 Atletico Madrid - Spaniard Javito consigns holders to defeat

The Greeks maintained their unbeaten home record in Europe...

A second-half volley from Spaniard Javito gave jubilant Aris Salonika a famous 1-0 victory over Europa League holders Atletico Madrid to spring a major shock in Greece.

In what was a slow-paced encounter, both sides struggled to create genuine goalscoring opportunites, until the former Barcelona B winger measured a sweet volley on the hour mark that left David De Gea helpless and proved enough to leave the 2010 winners beaten.

The story is too old to be commented.
