Aalborg with big win, while FCK continue injury time blues

AaB Aalborg and FC Copenhagen both secured vital points in difficult Europa League fixtures last night.

AaB enjoyed the best evening, beating Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev 3-0 at home thanks to an early strike by Thomas Enevoldsen and a double from Nicolaj Thomsen.

The win keeps AaB in third in Group J, but on six points, the same as Kiev and Steaua Bucharest, who beat bottom-feeders Rio Ave 2-1.

Another injury time fracas
FC Copenhagen looked poised to have a similarly spectacular night after young midfielder Daniel Amartey volleyed home into the top corner from 25 metres out with a minute to go to give the Lions a 1-0 lead away at Club Brugge.

But for the second straight Europa League match, FCK conceded deep into injury time as the Belgians rescued a point, keeping them ahead of the Danes in the Group B table.

The draw means that FCK sit third with four points, one points behind Brugge and three behind leaders Torino, who beat bottom side HJK Helsinki 2-0 in Italy.

In the next round of games, FCK take on Brugge at home at Parken on November 6, while Aalborg have a difficult trip to Kiev to look forward to.
