MATCH SUMMARY

Martin O'Neill fields another weakened team in Europe and the inevitable happens once again. Villa make it successive defeats to open 2009-10 as they fall to Rapid in Vienna as Nikica Jelaviฤ‡ scores his first but definitely not his last goal against Villa after 40 seconds to give his side a narrow advantage ahead of the second leg.

KEY MAN

Martin O'Neill's policy of resting players backfires again, Thursday, 20 August 2009.

ON THIS DAY

Villa's disappointing start to the campaign continued after conceding a 41 second goal in Austria to lose their second game in succession. It was a happier occasion for defender Shane Lowry however as he made his Villa debut aged 20 after joining from ECU Joondalup in Australia in February 2005 at the age of 15.
