Skenderbeu reached an extraordinary success last evening in “Elbasan Arena”, by securing a historic qualification against Dinamo Zagreb, this way entering the group stages of Europa League.
The match ended with no goals, which paved the way to Europe for the korcare after the 1-1 draw in the first match.
Ilir Dajas’ players put up a good performance in the match with strong tactical discipline, thus showing they are a team with the right amount of experience to play at these levels. Not even Nimaga’s red card in the 78th minute could become an obstacle for the korcare who defended quite well in the last minutes and were able to successfully complete their mission.
To reach this stage Skenderbeu went through a fantastic journey, becoming the first Albanian team to pass 4 eliminatory rounds. It will be the second time that the korcare get to compete in the group stages of Europa league, and today at 13:00 their next adversary will be announced during the draw at Monaco.
