Olympiacos FC outlasted Fenerbahçe in the early morning hours of Friday in Istanbul to qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League tournament, pulling away 3-2 in a penalty shootout (3-3 aggregate score).

The score during regulation time was 1-0 in favor of the Turkish home team.

Olympiacos won the first leg match 3-2 at its Karaiskakis Stadium after first going up 3-0 midway in the second half.

The popular Greek team’s goalkeeper, Kostas Tzolakis, was the “Man of the Match”, blocking three penalty kicks by Fenerbahce players.

Olympiacos will now face Premier League side Aston Villa in early May, with the first match at Birmingham’s Villa Park on May 2, followed by the second leg at Karaiskakis on May 9.
