Terrence Boyd got Rapid Vienna off to a dream start in their must-win UEFA Europa League group stage finale, but it still was not enough for the club to avoid an early exit.
Needing a win over Dynamo Kiev to advance out of Group G, Rapid Vienna suffered elimination after losing 3-1 to the Ukrainian club on Thursday. Boyd scored in the sixth minute to give Vienna a 1-0 lead on the road, but Kiev responded with two first-half goals before sealing the Austrian outfit’s fate with a third in the closing 45 minutes.
For Boyd, his close-range goal sees him end his time in this season’s Europa League with five goals. He has 12 goals across all competitions.
