NEXT GEN: BLUES UNDER-19S TO FACE VILLA

Posted on: Fri 29 Mar 2013

It will be an all-English club final in the NextGen Series on Monday evening after Aston Villa defeated Sporting Lisbon in Friday's second semi-final.

After a goalless first half, Villa took the lead from the penalty spot early in the second half, Graham Burke scoring, but the Portuguese club levelled it up midway through the half.

Like Chelsea's earlier game against Arsenal it went to extra time, Villa sewing up a 3-1 win with Jack Grealish and Samir Carruthers scoring.
