Ansu Fati made his first start for Brighton in the defeat against AEK Atenas, in the European debut of Roberto de Zerbi's team. The Greeks put in a very complete performance
The Brighton of Roberto of Zerbi has not been able to impose in his debut in Europe League. There was a lot of expectation on how went to exert in front of the always 'retador' AEK Athens, especially because they came of an exhibition in the Old Trafford in front of the Manchester United and a quite positive beginning in the Premier League, in general lines. However, in the European crash the 'seagulls' saw very surpassed after a first exceptional part of the visitors.
The novelty has been that Ansu Fati added his first titularity in the Falmer Stadium. Already it had seen minutes in the duel against the 'Network Devils', but this time supposed the first big bet in his profile to share in the line of attack. It split by behind Joao Pedro, with March and Mitoma by the sides. It was very attentive to try generate danger but, especially in the first 45', the attackers saw very surpassed by the picture of Matías Almeyda. It played the complete party.
Split 'stormy' in the Falmer Stadium
The clash lived a lot of histories and there was sufficient time so that they marked five goals. The AEK Athens cost of a first part magistral to advance by means of the targets of Sidibé and Gacinovic, but the difference could have been a lot of elder. They finished 'forgiving'. The of Roberto of Zerbi had marked to the half hour by means of a goal of Joao Pedro from the point penalti.
With the confidence that had been missing them before and pushed by the public of the Falmer Stadium, the inglesos provecharon in the beginning of the second half to dump to the attack and retar to a Cican Stanković that took part more than the foreseen to avoid the traced back. The main referee went back to signal a penal in favour of the venues and Joao Pedro converted it to give step to an absolute siege of the Brighton... That finished in disaster. They were so put in the attack that, in a contragolpe of the Greeks, Ezequiel Ponce signed the sentence after a hand manually with Steele.
