Maribor FC close to qualify in the Champions League
 

Review by Christos T. Panagopoulos

Slovenian football champions Maribor secured a goalless draw against APOEL in the third round of qualifying for the Champions League on Tuesday, enough to make it to the final qualifying round of Europe's elite club tournament.

Maribor advances on away goal advantage after a 1-1 draw in the first leg last week. The outcome takes it to the final round of qualifying for the Champions League and gives it an automatic berth in the Europa League, the third in as many years, in case if fails to qualify.

The Cypriot guests showed better play, but luck and fanatic cheering from the capacity crowd at Ljudski vrt stadium gave the home team the upper hand.

Their opponent in the next round will be determined in a draw held in Nyon on Friday.
