Aston Villa v Rapid Vienna: Europa League Open Thread

19:45 GMT, 11:45 PST. Glad I doubted my ability to convert time, because I was thinking this one started at 1:45. You'd think I'd be used to this by now.

Aston Villa: Guzan; Cuellar, Collins, Davies, Beye; Reo-Coker, Ireland, Petrov, A Young; Agbonlahor, Heskey. Subs: Delfouneso, Clark, Lichaj, Bannan, Albrighton, Hogg, Friedel.

Rapid Vienna: Hedl, Sonnleitner, Heikkinen, Hofmann, Katzer, Nuhiu, Kavlak, Saurer, Soma, Dober, Pehilvan. Subs: Payer, Patocka, Kulovits, Salihi, Gartler, Hinum, Trimmel.

Interested to see what shape Villa come out using; Dan at Aston Villa Central suggests this formation, and I have trouble finding fault. I'd love Ashley to be used in a more central role, but Ireland is not a box-to-box midfielder and I think the Newcastle match showed that.

I was pleased with the result last week, but good heavens another goal would have been nice. Here's to an early goal and a strong defensive performance. UTV!
