Unpolished performance: FC Copenhagen is approaching the Europa League group stage

Unpolished performance: FC Copenhagen is approaching the Europa League group stage

FC Copenhagen is a step away from reaching their 14th European group stage appearance for 15 years after defeated Polish side Piast Gliwice 3-0 at home in the third round of the Europa League qualifying round last night.

The Lions started nicely and went on after 14 minutes through Kamil Wilczek before a finish by Jonas Wind settled nervous nerves early in the second half.

The Danes seemed disorganized and defended with desperation at times in the second half as the Poles pressed for a goal but held on to see Pep Biel seal the deal in injury time.

To reach the group stage, FCK will now face HNK Rijeka from Croatia in another one-off match in Copenhagen in the final round on 1 October.

Elsewhere, it was the end of the line for Danish Cup winners SønderjyskE, who got new American owners this week.

The Light Blues went behind Czech opponents Viktoria Plzen thanks to a terrible penalty decision before succumbing to the final score of 0-3.

The last Danish side in European battle, FC Midtjylland, threshed better in the Czech Republic on Tuesday and secured a 0-0 draw to Slavia Prague on Tuesday in the first stage of the Champions League final.

The return match will be played in Herning on 30 September.
