Bertrand Traore scores in first start as Aston Villa edge past Bristol City in EFL Cup third round
The Burkinabe forward made an instant impression in his maiden outing with the Villans
Bertrand Traore scored on his return to English football with Aston Villa getting the better of Bristol City 3-0 in the EFL Cup third round at Ashton Gate on Thursday night.
The 25-year-old Burkinabe joined the Villans last week after a three-year association with Olympique Lyon.
He was unable to make his debut in their Premier League match against 10-man Sheffield United last weekend, but was thrust into the starting XI this time alongside Anwar El-Ghazi and Keinan Davis in attack.
Villa were clearly not here to waste any time and they got their first goal in the 11th minute via El-Ghazi, the assist coming from Davis.
WHAT. A. FINISH!
