Highest-Scoring Matches in Europa Conference League History


Highest-Scoring Matches in Europa Conference League History

Since the Europa Conference League was formed under UEFA's wing at the start of the 2021/22 season, it has given an opportunity for more sides to compete against fellow European teams from other leagues.

Roma were the inaugural winners, defeating Feyenoord 1-0 in the final. However, the current holders of the competition are the Premier League’s West Ham United, who beat Fiorentina 2-1 in what was a gripping encounter.

This article will look at the highest-scoring matches in the short history of this competition and dissect some of the enthralling encounters in context to the competition.

Partizan 2-5 Feyenoord | 10/03/22 | Round of 16

This round of 16 tie saw Partizan take a shock lead against the Dutch side thanks to an early goal from Bibras Natcho before Jens Toornstra levelled proceedings shortly after.

Partizan managed to regain the lead moments after the interval before Feyenoord rallied with four more goals to seal a comprehensive 2-5 victory on the road.

Toornstra managed a brace in this game and Luis Sinisterra managed a goal 20 minutes from time to almost put the tie beyond doubt as it was the first of a two-legged affair.

LASK 4-3 Slavia Praha | 17/03/2022 | Round of 16

A pulsating encounter in the second leg of a Round of 16 tie saw LASK and Slavia Praha fight it out in which the hosts edged a 4-3 victory, which wasn’t enough to progress after they lost 5-7 on aggregate.

Slavia started the brighter and Peter Olayinka’s goal gave the visitors a lead which lasted just 12 minutes. However, the lead was restored just a minute later and the action wasn’t done there.

This feisty matchup saw Slavia have two red cards, one just before half-time and a second followed five minutes from full-time when they were 3-2 up.

Andreas Gruber and Alexander Schmidt bagged a goal-a-piece to turn the game around with the help of two additional players.

Bodo/Glimt 6-1 Roma | 21/10/2022 | Group Stage

‘The Special Ones’ Roma were humbled in the group stages against Norwegian champions in a stunning 6-1 victory.

Jose Mourinho suffered the biggest-ever defeat of his managerial career in the Europa Conference League and the first time in his then 1008-game career to be hit for six.

In front of 5,652 supporters, the home side took the lead after just eight minutes through Erik Botheim; the lead was doubled on 20 as Patrick Berg bagged himself a goal.

Bryan Reynolds responded for the Italian side, but that’s as good as it got after being swept aside after the break.

Botheim doubled his tally for the day and two goals from Ola Solbakken came soon after. The rout was then completed by Amahl Pellegrino to cap off a miserable night for Roma.

Nordsjaelland 7-1 Ludogorets | 05/10/2023 | Group Stage

In what is the biggest victory in the conference league to date, Ludogorets got dismantled in the group stages against Nordsjaelland in a 7-1 thumping.

After just 11 minutes, the home side found themselves 2-1 up after scoring and conceding a penalty in the opening 10 minutes, a frantic start which set the tone for what was to come.

Before the interval, Jeppe Tverskov and the first of the afternoon for Benjamin Nygren saw the Danish side leading 4-1 at the break.

An own goal from Francisco Javier Hidalgo Gomez and another from Nygren made it six, before Christian Rasmussen completed the destruction of Ludogorets, being one of two Europa Conference league games to date to register eight goals in a single match.

PSV Eindhoven 4-4 Copenhagen | 10/03/2022 | Round of 16

The joint highest-scoring game and undoubtedly one of the most entertaining encounters was the 4-4 draw between PSV and FC Copenhagen in the first leg of the round of 16.

Copenhagen took an early lead through Isak Bergmann Johannesson before current Liverpool attacker Cody Gakpo levelled. Moments later, Pep Biel restored the visitors lead.

It was elation for the Danish side who added a third through Lukas Lerager on 43.

Ritsu Doan and Gakpo managed to claw it back to 3-3 in an end-to-end match. But the Dutch outfit were level for just eight minutes as Biel’s second gave Copenhagen a 3-4 lead.

However, Eran Zahavi once again levelled five minutes from time to spare the blushes of PSV as they looked to go into the second leg level.
