Lille moves a step closer to Uefa Cup..

07/20/2002.

French first division side Lille will have an enviable two goal advantage to take back home to the Grimonprez-Jooris stadium, as they came, saw and conquered in Romania at the expense of CF Gloria Bistrita. Fernando D'Amico shot the inspired visitors into the lead on 65 minutes, before Philippe Brunel capitalized on a swift counterattack to complete the 2-0 scoreline.

:cool:

Lille-Aston Villa

http://www.expressandstar.com/artman/publish/article_7931.shtml

Aug 1, 2002, 10:01am

Villa's travelling InterToto jinx continued last night when a stoppage time goal dashed a near perfect European away-day display.

Graham Taylor's men looked set to return celebrating a job well done only to see their advantage wiped out two minutes into stoppage time.

A close-range strike from Holte End favourite Ian Taylor 14 minutes from time had capped a disciplined Villa display against a side who were strutting their stuff on the Champions League stage last season.

But Villa's hopes of a first InterToto victory on opposition soil were blown apart when Lille midfielder Fernando D'Amico netted a last-gasp header.

The disappointment in the Villa camp was obvious as the final whistle sounded as the men in claret and blue trooped off the pitch heads bowed after acknowledging a sizeable away following.

Yet, this was to all intents and purpose, a job well done. Yes, the late goal was a blow, but Taylor and his players should be confident of wrapping things up at Villa Park next Wednesday.

This wasn't a sparkling showing from Villa. Solid as opposed to spectacular was very much the order of the day as they executed their pre-match game plan to near perfection.

The first half was pretty low key stuff as the visitors set out their stall to keep things tight. There was no real tempo to the game and while Lille were neat in possession Villa were content to let them have the ball in areas of the pitch where they couldn't hurt them.

Villa's attacking game plan centred on missing out the midfield and hitting front men Peter Crouch and Marcus Allback.

The ploy met with mixed success with Crouch in particular guilty of not holding the ball up and being dispossessed too easily at times.

JLloyd Samuel and Moustapha Hadji offered moments of menace on the flanks with one thrust from Samuel seeing him near the byeline before pulling over a low cross that just begged to be turned home. Unfortunately Crouch failed to get a clean contact under pressure from Abdel Fahmi.

It took half an hour for the first clear cut opening to arrive and it went the way of the hosts.

The Villa back line were caught out by a ball over the top from Mathieu Chalme that left Philippe Brunel bearing down on goal, but as debutant Stefan Postma raced from his line the midfielder lifted the ball over the keeper and wide of the far post.

Villa rode their luck again six minutes later as their rearguard was again exposed by a lofted pass.

Chalme was the provider once more with his chip setting up Mile Steasovski only for the striker to be denied by the quick reactions of Postma who rushed out to smother the shot.

The danger hadn't ended as the ball dropped for Brunel on the left-hand side of the area, but with Postma struggling to regain his ground Brunel curled a shot off target as Steve Staunton raced back to cover.

There was a more lively start to the second half with both teams threatening inside the first five minutes.

Firstly, a cushioned lay-off from Crouch teed-up Allback for a left-footer that skidded just wide before Villa were almost undone by a stroke of misfortune as Steve Staunton's header struck Steasovski and re-bounded into the striker's path, giving him the chance to stride forward and drill a low shot past Postma but into the side netting.

Normal service was then resumed as Villa tightened things up with centre-half Olof Mellberg yet again laying a strong claim for the man of the match accolade.

The introduction of Darius Vassell added some spark and pace to Villa's forward play and they almost scored on 71 minutes when Crouch latched onto a pass from Taylor before checking inside and forcing Gregory Wimbee into a save low to his left.

However, Villa didn't have to wait long before grabbing the all-important away goal.

Five minutes after denying Crouch, Wimbee failed to hold Mellberg's header from a Thomas Hitzlsperger corner with Taylor reacting quickest to lunge in and turn the rebound home.

Lille, despite changing their attacking options with the introduction of Hector Tapia and Djezon Boutoille, struggled to break down the two banks of four strung out in front of Postma.

But with the finishing post in sight, Villa were un-done as Boutoille and Tapia :happy: combined to set up D'Amico for a close-range diving header that soured a good night's work and leaves no margin for error next Wednesday.


:happy:

2ND lEG:: Aston Villa V Lille

08/06/2002. Aston Villa's second leg of their Intertoto Cup semi-final with Lille is set up nicely after a 1-1 draw in France last week.

A stoppage time equaliser from Fernando D'Amico denied the English side a massive victory after veteran midfielder Ian Taylor had given them a deserved lead seven minutes from time.

Lille finished fifth in the French league last season and showed they are a force to be reckoned with during their Champions League campaign, however they were slightly disappointing at home last Wednesday with a number of players looking like they were still on holiday.

Who ever progresses will be just one tie away from a place in the UEFA Cup which should be a big enough incentive for both sets of players to give this match their all.

Aston Villa boss Graham Taylor has a full squad to choose from, although George Boateng and Paul Merson have been sold to Middlesbrough and Portsmouth respectively. World Cup stars Alpay and Darius Vassell are yet to feature so far in Villa's Intertoto Cup campaign and they may only be on the bench on Wednesday as Taylor is set to field a similar team to the first leg. One change could be Colombian striker Juan Pablo Angel's return to action at the expense of Peter Crouch after Villa's record signing's recovery from injury.

The French season got under way at the weekend with Lille opening their domestic season with a 3-0 win at home to Bordeaux which is worrying for Claude Puel to say the least and could be a sign that they are already missing defender Pascal Cygan, who joined Arsenal last month.

Summer signing Hector Tapia is a candidate to start after the Chilean striker missed the first leg, as could defender Abdelilah Fahmi, although after Saturday's display Puel may ring the changes.

Aston Villa: Enckelman: Samuel, Mellberg, Staunton, Delaney; Hadji, Taylor, Barry, Hitzlsperger; Allback, Angel.

Lille: Wimbee: Pichot, Delpierre, Fahmi, Tafforeau; D'Amico, N'Diaye, Brunel, Campi; Chalme, Tapia.

Intertoto Cup Prediction: Aston Villa V Lille

www.soccerage.com

08/06/2002. Aston Villa were marginally the better team in the first leg and if they show a similar performance at Villa Park as they did in the last round against FC Zurich progression shouldn't be a problem. However, Lille are by no means pushovers and can be a tough side to break down. Villa to win a tight game 2-1 .

From Aston Villa's Official Web Site ... Sorry Guys !!!!

Villa 0-2 Lille

Lille shattered Villa’s Uefa Cup ambitions on a frustrating night, with a quick one-two either side of the break.

The French outfit struck on 45 and 46, undoing all Villa’s good work seven days ago and bringing the pre-season action to a premature end.

And yet the evening started promisingly enough as Hitzlsperger sent over a looping cross from the left and Crouch headed straight at keeper Wimbee on three. Vassell produced a storming run five minutes later, but he too was unable to beat the Lille keeper.

Staunton’s well-struck free-kick was palmed out by Wimbee on 13. After an impressive start, Villa lost some of their early impetus, but Crouch almost opened the scoring on the half-hour mark.

He turned quickly to leave Chalme stranded, but saw his goal-bound effort cleared off the line by Schmitz. Five minutes later Delaney swung a cross over from the right, with Barry prodding the ball just inches wide of the near-post.

Crouch then sent a free-header just wide from Barry’s centre. Vassell sent a low cross fizzing along the edge of the six-yard box two minutes from the break as Villa rediscovered their early composure.

They were behind though on the stroke of half-time as Fahmi’s 35-yard free-kick took a wicked deflection past Enckelman.

Lille doubled their lead within 60 seconds of the restart. Enckelman brilliantly denied Brunel, but Bonnal followed-up to fire into an empty net.

As Villa looked for a way back in, Vassell blazed over on 54, before Crouch fired narrowly over moments later. Hadji’s well-flighted free-kick was tipped onto the bar by Wimbee on 68.

Seconds later Brunel should have extended Lille’s lead as he pounced on a mix-up between Enckelman and Mellberg, only to drag his shot wide of the target.

With the seconds ticking away, Moore saw his right-foot volley deflected wide. N’Diaye was sent-off two minutes from time, but by then it was too late to take advantage of a one-man advantage.

Preview:OSC Lille v VfB Stuttgart

www.soccerage.com

08/12/2002.

VfB Stuttgart certainly seem the more fired up team going into the first leg of Intertoto Cup final, though the hosts are due a goal - having failed to find the net in their first two games of the new French season - and they should also benefit significantly from homefield advantage. In light of this, we suspect that the likeliest outcome will be a 1-1 tie.
