When the PAOK Saloniki players strolled through St. Pölten’s town hall square on Saturday afternoon, they still seemed relaxed and confident. A few hours later, the Greeks were stunned.

PAOK had no chance in qualifying for the Champions League, SKN won comfortably 3-0 (3-0) and is well on the way to getting back into the group phase.

The 1-0 came after a quick attack. Brunnthaler scored (12th). After that, PAOK had one chance to equalize.

With brains

Then the standard strength of the women’s series champion was required: Mädl headed a strong corner into the net to make it 2-0 (22nd). And the third goal also came with a header. Lemesova extended a free kick cross for the preliminary decision (29th).

After the break it remained 3-0.

Now coach Liese Brancao’s team is hoping for further success in the final qualifying phase.

911 drama

There were light and shadows for the ÖFB team players in the first qualifying round. Frankfurt met Juventus, Virginia Kirchberger, Verena Hanshaw and Barbara Dunst were in the starting line-up.

Hanshaw failed in the penalty shootout, but Juve were still defeated.

The unexpected exit in the penalty shootout came for Arsenal and goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger. A 2:2 against FC Paris became 3:3 after 120 minutes, Zinsberger saved one attempt in the penalty shootout – too little, Paris won.
