The south-eastern team of ‘Scanderbeg’ managed to reach the third round of Europe League after winning with 2-0 score the 2nd match against Kairat Almaty. The Albanian team prevailed on the adversary dominating the game most of the time despite the fact that the Kazakh team had a number of qualitative players and very high budget.
Scanderbeg got the lead thanks to a goal scored by Lilaj in the 50th minute but the qualification became uncertain in the 75th minute when a player was expelled with a red card. Anyway, things returned to normality when Plako scored the 2nd goal in 83rd minute.
A red card given by the referee to Arzo of Kairat equalized the forces in the field.
The only Albanian team still playing in Europe’s Cups will now meet with Czech team of Mlada Bolesav.
