A number of players from Bosnia and Herzegovina were involved in last night’s UEFA Europa League third round matches.
Former FC Zeljeznicar striker Edin Dzeko played the full 90 minutes in AS Roma’s 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach. Paulo Fonseca’s team took the lead through Nicolo Zaniolo in the 32nd minute, but saw the victory slipping away when Lars Stindl equalized from the penalty spot in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
Scottish referee William Collum awarded a penalty for a handball, even though the ball hit Chris Smalling in the face.
“You can’t give a penalty like that right at the death. It is unacceptable… It’s a bad mistake and it shouldn’t happen at this level”, Dzeko said after the game.
Also in group J, Edin Visca was substituted in the 90th minute of his Istanbul Basaksehir’s 1-0 victory against Wolfsberger AC.
Qarabaq, with Asmir Begovic once again between the posts, drew 2-2 with APOEL Nicosia.
Gojko Cimirot played the full 90 minutes in Standard Liege’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt. Also in Europa League Group F, Sead Kolasinac was an unused substitute in Arsenal’s 3-2 come-from-behind win over Vitoria Guimaraes.
SS Lazio’s Senad Lulic entered the game against Scottish giants Celtic in the 69th minute, but was unable to prevent his team from losing the game 2-1.
Mateo Susic was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 82nd minute of CFR Cluj’s 1-0 victory away at Rennes. Eldar Civic played the full 90 minutes in Ferencvaros’ surprising 1-0 away victory against CSKA Moscow.
