UEL: One goal Eliminates both Arka and Lech

POZNAN, Poland. August 4 (PSN) – Both Lech Poznan and Arka Gydnia took part of the second leg of the third round of UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday and were ultimately eliminated.

Lech Poznan ended their European Cup adventure prematurely. While Utrecht had to play a man down due to a red card, it hardly made a difference. Nenad Bjelica’s team still only managed to draw 2:2 at home. The Poles were leading the game, but a game ending turnover in the final minutes allowed Utrecht to score and tie up the game. This result as such allows the Dutch to advance due goals on aggregate.

Arka Gdynia, like 38 years ago, said goodbye to Europe, losing out to FC Midtjylland. While having control for majority of the game, Arka started to slack off in the second half due to leading 2:0 on aggregate. However, the Danes soon took advantage of this. After an Arka own goal, Midtjylland themselves also scored a late game winner in the third minute of injury time which then saw Arka out of the competition.
