APOEL sink Dudelange and now await Viitorul

APOEL reached the third qualifying round of the Champions League on Wednesday where they will now face Romanian champions Viitorul after clinching a second narrow victory over Dudelange in Luxembourg.

Brazilian-born Belgian striker Igor de Camargo scored the only goal of the game after converting a penalty on 41 minutes that had been won by Tommy Oar. Facundo Bertoglio had also hit the post for Mario Been’s side while APOEL keeper Boy Waterman had been called into action on several occasions to deny the hosts.

APOEL had also won the first leg 1-0 in Nicosia and are now expected to face stiffer opposition against Viitorul – who are managed and owned by Romanian legend Gheorghe Hagi.

The Cypriot champions are looking to reach the group stages of the Champions League for a fourth time.
