Shkendija of Tetovo managed to qualify in the play off stage of the Europa League. The red and blacks were defeated 1-0 in the Czech Republic by Mlada Boleslav, but the 2-0 victory in Tetovo a week ago  takes the team from Kosovo in the play off.

Shkendija managed to defend the result and on the 82nd minute, Magera scored the winning goal of the match with a header.

In the remaining minutes, Shkendija maintained its composure and thanks to its fans, managed to qualify.

This is a great success for the history of this club in European matches.

“The game was difficult and we knew that the opponent would try everything, because we knew that they were higher than us. I would like to congratulate all the players, especially the defense”, said Bruno Akrapovic, the Croatian coach of the club from Tetovo. /
