On Wednesday evening, we met the last six teams that will play in the third preliminary round Champions League. After no big surprises in Tuesday’s games, that can’t be said for Wednesday’s games.
Olympiacos and Malmo covers, impressive revamp of Ferencvaros
In the group stage, we will not see Greek champion Olympiacos Piraeus. The Greek dominance, who in the twenty-first century did not qualify for the Champions League only three times (for comparison, was promoted to the playoffs the same number of times), unexpectedly lost to the Israeli Maccabi Haifa in his own stadium. And it reaches 0: 4. And not only that – he deservedly lost, because despite the loss of a goal by the Tjaron Cheri in the fifth minute, the Greeks played, where players like Vaclic, Papastathopoulos, Vrsaljko, Mvilla or Valbuena – any big names for this . Competition Phase – They only fire one shot during the entire match. In the 61st and 65th minutes, Franzda Piero scored two goals for the visitors, and Mohamed Abu Fani at the end of the fourth half. And since in the first match in Israel there was a 1-1 draw, the feeling became real.
Now Olympiacos will play in the third qualifying round European Championships With Slovan Bratislava: It is interesting that both teams faced each other in the fourth round of el. pounds in the previous season. Then it turned out that Olympiacos was better (3: 0 and 2: 2).
For the first time in history, Lithuania will have a team in the group stage of the European Cups
The biggest sensation is certainly the downfall of Swedish champion Malmoe FF after a draw against Lithuanian Żalgiris Vilnius. In addition, it happened in a disgusting fashion for the Swedes, because after the defeat in Vilnius 0: 1 Malmo also lost at home, the score was 0: 2. The promotion of Żalgiris means that the Lithuanians will play at least in the group stage of the European Conferences League.
Stanisław Czerczesow’s team, Ferencvaros Budapest, was able to effectively renovate it. The Hungarian champions lost 1:2 at home to Slovan Bratislava at home, but won 4:1 at the opponent’s court. The result, however, should not deceive anyone – the outcome of this tie was determined only in the end, when Adama Traore and Issa Lidoni both scored important goals in the promotion of Ferencvaros.
On Wednesday, among others, Dynamo Kyiv beat Fenerbahce Istanbul in overtime 2:1.
