Europa hold on to make history

Europa put out a confident display as they held on to qualify to the 2nd round qualifiers of the Europa League for the first time in their 3rd attempt which marks the first time in the club’s history to make make it this far in the competition. The win also marks Gibraltar’s first club to progress into the 2nd phase of Europe’s secondary European club football. All this just 24 hours after Lincoln also progressed into the same phase of the Champions League where they will meet Celtic.

Europa arrived in Armenia with a 2 goal lead and they went on to extend it as Joselinho capitalised on an error by the Pyunik keeper to score the vital away goal. Pyunik rallied and scored 2 goals in either half to win the game but ultimately fell short.

Europa will now travel to Sweden to face AIK and will play at the venue which will host the final of this season’s Europa League. Europa will be away for the first leg on the 14th with the return a week later in Gibraltar.
