Santiago Hezze scores for Olympiacos in 4-2 win vs. Aston Villa


Santiago Hezze scored for Olympiacos in their 4-2 away win vs. Aston Villa in the first leg of the UEFA Conference League semifinals.

With the Greek team leading 3-2, the 22-year-old Argentine midfielder shot powerfully with his right leg from outside the box, and after a deflection, the ball ended up in the back of the net, making it 4-2 for his team.

The former Vélez Sarsfield left-back, Francisco Ortega, started for Olympiacos but had to leave the pitch injured at the end of the first half.

Emiliano Martínez didn’t play for Aston Villa because he was suspended due to the number of yellow cards he received in the competition. Dibu is expected to start for the Villians in the second leg.
