Conference League: Fenerbahce and Fiorentina close place in quarterfinals

Her emphatic double in Belgium (3–0 St. Zilouaz) and the shocking overthrow of Fiorentina, which defeated Maccabi Haifa 4–3 in Budapest’s “Bozsik Arena”, stood out from the first games for the Conference League phase 16. Fenerbahce was an absolute… boss at Anderlecht’s “Lotto Park” in the match with St. Zillouaz, taking from the 20th minute the lead with Batsuagi’s goal. The Belgians were unable to hit the Turkish team, which found two more goals in the last quarter with Ostervolde (84′) and Tadic (90’+3′ penalty), “locking” the qualification for quarterfinals from the first match. A strong lead with… Buzzer beater goal of Barack in 90’+5′ also took Fiorentina, who defeated Maccabi Haifa 4–3 in Budapest after a shocking game. The Israelis led three times with the Shek (12′), Kida (29′), Halaili (67′), but the “viola” constantly found… answers. Enjola (2′), Beltran (59′) and Madragora (79′) scored the Italians’ equalization goals before Barak’s final “hit”.
