Litex Lovech 1-3 Aston Villa Highlights – Uefa Cup

Aston Villa came from behind to beat nine-man Litex Lovech in the Uefa Cup.

Litex shocked the visitors when Ivelin Popov curled in a free-kick but keeper Uros Golubovic gifted Villa a leveller.

Golubovic missed an attempted clearance and Nigel Reo-Coker slotted in before Cedric Cambon was sent-off for the home side for two bookable offences.

Mihail Venkov was then red-carded for handball and Gareth Barry, on his 400th Villa outing, scored from the spot before Stiliyan Petrov’s late goal.

The win flattered a Villa side who found the going tough in Bulgaria.
