UFA, 17 August 2018. /Bashinform News Agency, Natalia Ovcharuk/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
As football experts assumed, the second half of the third round of the European League qualification between Ufa and Luxembourg Progres was more interesting than the first. However, already in the second minute Pavel Alikin made a mistake and shot the ball into Alexander Belenov’s net. The home team tried to catch the Ufa team on counterattacks.
The second half gave Sergey Tomarov's players a chance to reach the play-off round qualification of European competition. In the 51st minute, the Croatian footballer of FC Ufa Ivan Paurevich scored a nice header — 1: 1. Such score was suitable for the Ufa team to reach the playoffs round. But its plans were ruined by Almeida, having doubled the advantage of the home team.
At the end of the match, the Ufa team hardly restrained the attacks of the Paolo Amodio players: Belenov saved. Already in extra time, Paurevich made a double having used a pass by Krotov — 2: 2.
FC Ufa again achieved its historic maximum and reached the next round of the Europa League. The rival of the Bashkir team will be determined in the near future.
