A draw in UEFA Europa League's game came quite unexpected in Saint Etienne, where the local team hosted Oleksandriya FC from Ukraine. And it's not the outcome or the score, of course, that could embarrass a person; it's the way things turned for two teams and just one man on the pitch.
It appeared that the first 15 minutes of the first half decided everything in the game. Gabriel Silva opened the score at the eighth minute. Several minutes after that, as the Ukrainians landed an attack, the same and only Silva tried to push the ball to safety; instead, it ended up in his own goals.
The score did not change until the end of the game, so it ended up as a 1-1 draw; nor did the outcome affect the group standings. The teams scored one point each, and they are still in the outside area, with Wolfsburg and Gent leading the way.
