Aston Villa advanced to the last 32 of the UEFA Cup despite crashing to a 2-1 defeat against 10-man MSK Zilina.

Goals from Vladimir Leitner, who was sent off in the second half for two bookable offences, and Peter Styvar put MSK in control before Nathan Delfouneso pulled one back on his full debut for Martin O'Neill's side.

Villa could not find an equaliser but still join Hamburg and Ajax in the knockout stages.
