UEFA Europa League
Round of 32, second leg
3 – PSV Eindhoven (HOL) ——— Dzsudzsak 55′, Lens 67′, Marcelo 73′
1 – OSC Lille (FRA) ——————– Frau 22′
Three unanswered second half goals powered Dutch Eredivisie outfit PSV EINDHOVEN to a 3-1 victory over visiting French Ligue 1 side OSC LILLE in the decisive second leg match in the UEFA Europa League knockout Round of 32.
After OSC Lille had taken a surprise first half lead through PIERRE-ALAIN FRAU in the 22nd minute, the Boeren fought back to level on a quickly-taken free kick by Hungary international BALAZS DZSUDZSAK — PSV Eindhoven’s leader with six goals in Europe this season — ten minutes into the second half.
Already trailing on away goals, Lille lost their goal-scorer on account of a second yellow card in the 62nd minute and fell behind permanently when Holland international winger JEREMAIN LENS scored his first goal for PSV in Europe this term five minutes later.
