Aston Villa continued their tour of Germany with a 1-1 draw at Bundesliga 2 side Paderborn on Friday.

Rick ten Voorde had given the hosts the lead in the first half at the Benteler Arena, but Andreas Weimann equalised with 15 minutes remaining for a share of the spoils.

The Premier League side had a decent chance early on as Ciaran Clark headed wide from a corner, and they were made to rue that miss in the 22nd minute.

Thomas Bertels burst down the left wing before cleverly cutting back to Dutchman Ten Voorde, who swept the ball past Jed Steer.

Villa boss Paul Lambert elected to field separate XIs in the first and second halves and the introduction of Weimann after the break proved crucial.

The Austria international twice went close before finally latching onto a through ball and rounding the goalkeeper before tapping into the empty net.

After drawing the first two games of their tour 1-1, Villa will hope for a first win when they take on VfL Bochum on Sunday.
