Huge Blow For Burnley’s European Dream

Konstantinos Fortounis scored two and created the other as Olympiacos left Burnley’s European dreams hanging by a thread with a 3-1 Europa League win on Thursday.

Burnley – who played the last 30 minutes with 10 men after Ben Gibson’s red card – still retain a glimmer of hope thanks to Chris Wood’s penalty, but they will need to turn on the style at Turf Moor in seven days’ time if they are to progress to the group stage.

Fortounis opened the scoring with a superb free-kick before setting up Andreas Bouchalakis for their second after Wood had restored parity.

A penalty from Fortounis completed the victory for the 44-time Greek champions and Burnley were grateful to Tom Heaton for keeping the deficit at just two goals.

MISSED THIS?  Joe Aribo close to Southampton move.
