Ollie Watkins Bags 3 Goals As Aston Villa Destroys Hibernian In Europa Conference League Playoffs

Ollie Watkins Bags 3 Goals As Aston Villa Destroys Hibernian In Europa Conference League Playoffs

Ollie Watkins was unarguably the man of the match, bagging a hat-trick in Aston Villa first Europa Conference League game against Scottish side, Hibernian. 

Watkins sent in a beautiful header from Digne’s cross in the 17th minute to put the visitors in front. Then he sent in a second in the 33rd minute from Diego Carlos’ ball inside the box. 

Hibernian were yet to reciprocate when Leon Bailey nodded the third goal of the game, sealing the deal for the visitors in the first half. 

Ollie sent in a third goal past David Marshall in the 48th minute, and Douglas Luiz’s penalty ended the match even before stoppage time. Unai Emery was ecstatic. 

Speaking about the game, he said: 

“We know we really played at a high level and didn’t let them play how they usually play. The end result is maybe not deserved, but we deserved to win, and our respect for them is playing how we played.”

“We know they are very good at transitioning. We know they have good long balls and crosses. We tried to keep control of the ball, and we did it.”

“I am happy, but everything we did was with respect. In this competition, first, we have to be in the groups, and second, trying to do something here.”

Both sides return to league action at the weekend before next Thursday’s second leg (20:00 BST) in Birmingham as Hibs host Livingston on Saturday and Villa travel to Burnley the following day.
