Östersunds FK – Zorya
UEFA Europa League, Group Stage, Round 5
Östersund, Jämtkraft Arena
November 23, 20.05 Kyiv time
Yuriy Vernydub’s men lost their first group stage fixture to Swedes, and now they have a chance to have their revenge. Currently, all four squads can apply for UEFA Europa League, including Zorya, which currently comes second with six points.
- Östersunds FK – 7 pts
- Zorya – 6
- Athletic Bilbao – 5
- Hertha BSC – 4
If Östersunds win, they are sure to exit the group stage and proceed into the round of the last 16.
Interestingly, the Swedish team will only be able to play in this tournament in the next season, if they win this year’s competition. Östersunds finished fifth in this year’s national championship, which keeps the team away from playing in European cups.
