Feyenoord suffered a big defeat in the first home game in the group stage of the Europa League.

Partly due to three questionable penalties, the Rotterdammers lost 1-4 against the Austrian Wolfsberger AC on Thursday.

Feyenoord experienced the worst imaginable start in the empty Kuip.

Eric Botteghin, the replacement of the suspended Marcos Senesi, let Christopher Wernitznig run out of his back after three minutes of play and then seemed to touch him lightly in the penalty area.

Liendl graciously grasped the opportunity.

Less than ten minutes later, the midfielder who scored zero goals on behalf of FC Twente in the 2017/2018 season was allowed to rejoin from eleven meters.

Wernitznig willingly went to the ground after alleged contact with Bart Nieuwkoop, heralding the early 0-2.

Feyenoord did not offer anything in return and did not even produce a single shot on goal in the first half.

Only after the break, when trainer Dick Advocaat brought attacker Luciano Narsingh in for defender Nieuwkoop, the home team started to run better.

Narsingh had only been in the field for eight minutes when he gave the assist to the connection goal from Berghuis.

The equalizer then seemed a matter of time, but Bryan Linssen missed eye to eye with goalkeeper Alexander Kofler, after which Lutsharel Geertruida hit the post from the rebound.

Wolfsberger turned out to be more decisive in the counter blow.

After Justin Bijlow initially saved, Liendl completed his hat-trick with a placed shot.

After more than an hour of play, the match finally ended when referee Jovanovic pointed to the spot in everyone's surprise because Bijlow jumped too firmly at the ball in his eyes.

This left Liendl the honor to his teammate Dejan Joveljic, who also did not fail.
