🟥 | Sending off, Total insanity as the referee sends off Emiliano Martínez for gesturing to the crowd to stop booing him as they have done from the first whistle
🎥 | Decision overturned, referee lost all control, it is unclear what would have happened as no substitutes are permitted once the match had completed its course. Utter stupidity from the official.

Villa win penalty shootout 4-3

Match Summary

There we were thinking "oh well there's always next year" and Matty Cash rocks up with another late cup goal to send the tie to extra time. Suddenly Villa played like Villa and Lille, with chances themselves, were undoubtedly second best in the 30 minutes of extra time without taking the lead thanks to some outstanding saved from Lille's young 'keeper Chavalier.

On to pens and a 4-3 win should have been so much smoother but for a moment of idiocy from the Slovakian referee. Thankfully the distraction was only a momentary one and Emi Martínez wouldn't be denied.

Key Man

Emiliano Martínez, they hate him, we love him, we won through because of him
