The Week In Europe

Posted in Champions League at 10:18 pm by deadlymusings

The Second Qualifying Round of this season’s Champions League began yesterday and there was really only one surprise through the first leg. Moldovan champions Sheriff Tiraspol held on for a 1-1 draw against Russian side Spartak Moscow. There still remains little doubt that the Red-Whites will still go through.

Elsewhere, former European Cup winners Red Star Belgrade needed an own goal to take a 1-0 victory against eircom League champions Cork City. Hearts marked their debut in the competition with an emphatic 3-0 win over Bosnian champions Siroki Brijeg and last season’s UEFA Cup semifinalists Steaua Bucharest defeated Gorica 2-0.

The draw for the next round is not made until Friday.
