Dogged Dnipro battle back to beat AIK

AIK Solna 2-3 FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk
Dnipro came back from 1-0 and 2-1 down to record an eye-catching victory in Group F, Yevhen Seleznyov scoring the winner with seven minutes left.

FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk produced a rousing second-half display to condemn AIK Solna to a second successive defeat in Group F of the UEFA Europa League.

Dnipro's Nikola Kalinić cancelled out Helgi Daníelsson's early strike before Henok Goitom restored AIK's lead just seconds before the interval. However, the visitors responded well, late goals from Vitaly Mandziuk and Yevhen Seleznyov ensuring Juande Ramos's side left the Råsundastadion with maximum points.

The hosts made a superb start, taking the lead through Daníelsson with just five minutes on the clock. The midfielder was granted time outside the Dnipro area and took full advantage, unleashing a dipping volley that flew past Jan Laštůvka.

That would prove to be a rare attacking incursion for AIK. With Olexandr Aliyev pulling the strings in midfield, Dnipro enjoyed the lion's share of possession and created several opportunities before the break. AIK goalkeeper Ivan Turina produced a fine reaction save to deny Kalinić, who then hooked another effort wide of the target when well-placed later in the half.

The Croatian international would eventually get his name on the scoresheet, taking advantage of Per Karlsson's slip to slot past Turina. Parity would not last long, however, AIK catching Dnipro cold to restore their lead in first-half added time. Daníelsson was the provider on this occasion, diverting a cross into the path of striker Goitom, who converted with aplomb.

Unperturbed, Dnipro continued to dominate after the interval and drew level again, Mandziuk meeting Ivan Strinić's delightful cross with an unstoppable header. A draw looked to be on the cards, but a misjudgement from AIK's Niklas Backman allowed Seleznyov to nip in and seal a memorable comeback.
