Cruising at the top, hopefully you can turn it around in the Champions League as well.
Courageous Klubi go out of Champions league
HJK’s dreams of making the Champions League group stage were heartbreakingly dashed in Wednsday’s match away at Legia, because although Kévin Gauthier’s men lost 2-1 on the night, the tie ended 3-1 on aggregate and the club is now looking forward to competing in the Europa League.
In the cauldron of noise and colour created by the 22,660 supporters at the Polish Army Stadium, Klubi were looking to reverse the fortunes of the first leg. It started out very promising as Leo Vaisanen scored the first goal of the match giving HJK the 1-0 lead and making it on aggregate. Sadly this was the only goal for Klubi as the Legia defense were not allowing Klubi to do anything. It was a very frustrating day for the club as the referee would be carding our boys too much. Legia would score two more goals to secure their place in the next round in the 37th and 70th-minutes.
Now for Klubi it is time to focus on the league and Suomen Cup for the next few weeks. In a day a bunch of new transfers will be arriving and hopefully help us in the Europa League. The draw for the Europa League Playoff is set for this upcoming Friday.
