VIENNA, Austria. October 27 (PSN) – Lech Poznan took part in the fifth round of the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage on Thursday.
Final score: FK Austria Vienna – Lech Poznan 1:1
Lech could had already sealed promotion for themselves from the group in Vienna, but once again a lack of capitalizing on their chances in front of the net has cost them again.
Despite taking the lead after a goal by Mikael Ishak in the 48th minute, the Kolejorz were unable to keep a clean sheet and a defensive mistake by Pedro Rebocho in the 69th resulted in a draw with FK Austria Vienna.
“Unfortunately, we could only get a draw here. This is disappointing for us.” said Lech coach John van den Brom in the post-game presser.
The final fight for second place in the group will take place in a week’s time.
Lech’s rival for promotion will be the Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva FC, who will take on FK Austria. Meanwhile, the Poles will face group leaders Villarreal CF in Poznan.
