“Mariupol” failed to present a sensation in the first match against “Bordeaux” in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.
“Mariupol” briskly started the match and quickly opened the gates of Bordeaux – 7 minutes Mishnev after a corner successfully caught the ball on his foot and sent it into the left corner.
The minimal advantage the nominal owners kept until the 33rd minute. At Bordeaux there was a rapid attack on the centre – Laborde popped out and bore down on goal and beat the goalkeeper.
The turning point was a curious moment at the end of the first half – an experienced Khudzhamov fidgeted with the ball at his gate, than the immediate advantage of Laborde.
Early in the second half, the French again opened the scoring of the “Mariupol” – a gross mistake Demiri have used Tchameni, who converted a spectacular heel pass from Sangare.
“Mariupol” to the last tried to reduce backlog in the account. The most real chance to score the second goal was from substitute Boyarchuk, long-range strike which hit the post.
The return match of the third qualifying round between “Bordeaux” and “Mariupol” will be held on August 16. The winner of this pair for a place in the group stage of the Europa League will argue with “jagiellonia białystok” or “Gent”.
