Cypriot club Apollon clings to some hope in the UEFA Champions League Round of 32 against Austrian club Neulengbach after American Jasmyne Spencer came on in the second half and scored in the 88th minute. Neulengbach won 2-1, earning two critical away goals, but Spencer’s goal at least gives Apollon some optimism entering the second leg next week.
Four NWSL players — goalkeeper Michelle Betos, Joaanna Lohman, Lianne Sanderson and Sinead Farrelly — started along with Nikki Krzysik and Tina DiMartino.
MTK Hungária FC 0-5 Turbine Potsdam: Lisa Evans scored twice and Stefanie Draw, Natasa Andonova, Maren Mjelde each added goals in the rout.
Konak 2-1 Unia Raciborz: Cosmina Dusa set the home side off on the right foot with a goal in the 9th minute and Sevgi Cinat doubled the advantage before Marta Mika pulled one back late in the 1st half. Neither club could find the tie-altering goal in the 2nd half so they head to Poland with Konak on top but Raciborz in possession of an away goal.
LSK 1-3 Malmo: Former WPS players Therese Sjogran and Ramona Bachmann scored for former champions Tyreso, but it was Manon Melis’s goal that proved pivotal, giving the visitors the lead back two minutes after the Norwegian club equalized through Emilie Haavi.
Champions League play continues next week with the 2nd legs of the Round of 32 fixtures on Wednesday and Thursday.
