Europa League Results For Week 1

- September 22, 2023

Liverpool began their bid for UEFA Europa League glory by beating LASK in Austria on Thursday.

The Reds fell behind to an early 20-yard strike from Florian Flecker but leveled in the 56th minute through a Darwin Nunez penalty kick.

Goals from Luis Diaz and substitute Mohamed Salah then wrapped up a 3-1 victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The Hammers overcame TSC Backa Topola in London, despite Petar Stanic putting the Serbian side 1-0 up in the 48th minute following a mistake by Angelo Ogbonna.

A Nemanja Petrovic own goal drew West Ham level before strikes from Mohammed Kudus and Tomas Soucek secured three points.

Elsewhere on Thursday, Brighton & Hove Albion fell to a defeat in their first ever Europa League game as AEK Athens won 3-2 on the South Coast.

Djibril Sidibe, Mijat Gacinovic and Ezequiel Ponce got the goals for Athens as the Greek side stunned the AMEX Stadium, where Joao Pedro twice equalized for Brighton.

The defeat was a big blow for the Seagulls, who will also face Ajax and Marseille in a tough Group B.
