Ajax, the semi-finalist of the latest edition, managed to overcome the third round of the Champions League on Tuesday, defeating the Greek side of Thessaloniki PJSC with a score of 3: 2, sharing with a score of 2: 2 in the first match.
The Dutch have brought some concerns to their audience. They were scored 23 minutes before Dusan Tadic missed a penalty (32). The Serb attacker bought himself eleven minutes later, equalizing, turning this time his test into eleven meters (43). Only in the 79th minute Nicolas Tagliafico allowed the Lancers to take advantage. Dusan Tadic, again on the penalty spot, widened the gap (85th place) before Bisesvar, who also scored the first goal, set the score 3-2 (90th +4). In the playoffs, Ajax will confront the Cypriots APOEL Nicosia, who won 0-2 against Karabakh Azerbaijanis after 1-2 defeats in the first match.
The big surprise of the evening arrives from Portugal with the elimination of FC Porto, a quarterfinal of last season. “Dragons” beat Krasnodar with a score of 0: 1 in the first match, but were defeated in the first half on Tuesday to eventually lose 2-3. In the break, the Russians were already leading with a score of 0: 3 thanks to the goals of Tonni Villena (3rd place) and Magomed Suleymanov (13th and 34th place). The second period, with a “knife between teeth”, allowed the Portuguese to score two goals for Zé Luis (57th and Luis Diaz (76th), but not to snatch a ticket to the dam.
In the next round, Krasnodar will defeat Olympiakos, who defeated the Turks Basaksehir with a score of 2: 0 and confirmed their success 0: 1 in the first match.
Celtic Pain Bolingoli-Mbombo was eliminated by the Romanians from Cluj. Impressive 3-4 defeats from Celtic Park are worth the Scots qualifications after 1: 1 in the first match. Bolingoli-Mbombo remained on the bench.
Rosenborg fired Maribor with a score of 3: 1 and will fight Dynamo Zagreb, easily defeating Ferencvaros 0-4 after 1-1 division in the first match.
Finally, only one match ended in a penalty. Red Star Belgrade and Copenhagen divided 1: 1 in the first 90 minutes. Finally, the Serbs came to the fateful session, marked by nine errors, and will meet with the young guys from Bern in the playoffs.
