Wolverhampton Wanderers were feeling elated after Pedro Neto netted an away goal in their Europa League tie away to Olympiacos.
In a strange fixture, which was played behind closed doors, the Greek side took the lead through Youssef El Arabi despite the fact they had Ruben Semedo sent off midway through the opening period (via BBC). However, Wolves had the 19-year-old to thank after his deflected strike gave them a precious away goal, taking his tally for the season up to four goals and four assists (via Transfermarkt).
Despite the scoreline, the fixture proved to be a pretty drab affair with both sides producing just seven shots on target. Following the tie, the £11.7m-rated, as per Transfermarkt, Portugal youth international claimed that it was difficult to play against ten-men in his interview with BT Sports (via BBC). Supporters were over the moon after the attacker’s strike as they took to Twitter to react. Here are some tweets:
