After the Champions League group stage will start the second in rank of the European Cup, Europa League, which involved two Ukrainian clubs.
Kiev “Dynamo” got quite a passable group in which, in addition to Kazakh “Astana”, there is still the French “Rennes” and the Czech “Jablonec”. Vice-Champions of Ukraine just have to get out of it, taking 1st or 2nd place.
Poltava “Vorskla” to fight for qualifying from the group would be incredibly difficult, but just to play in “giants” it will be very interesting: Arsenal (London, England) and “sporting” (Lisbon, Portugal)! And strong Azerbaijani “Karabakh” in the bargain.
Thursday, September 20, will host matches of the 1st round.
Match “Dynamo” – “Astana” will start at 19:55 Moscow time on the channel “Football 1”.
Stream from London match “Arsenal” – “Vorskla” will begin at 22:00 on the channel “Football 2”.
Recall that the matches of Shakhtar in the Champions League for the first time in history will be shown on the public channels.
