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.
