FCK prolong European adventure despite the defeat to Malmö

FC København lost 0-1 to Malmo FF in the last group match in the Europa League. FCK went despite defeat on.

FC Copenhagen for the sixth time in the club's history from a european group stage.

But it was not in the way the copenhageners had wanted and imagined it.

I am lost on Thursday evening disappointing 0-1 at home to Malmö FF in the sixth and last group match in the Europa League.

But it was still enough for FCK to take second place in the group with nine points after six matches.

Malmö FF went with the victory in the Park on which came in second in the group with 11 points.

It all stemmed from a surprising result in the Ukraine.

Dynamo Kiev, which could have spoiled the whole thing for FCK, played surprisingly 1-1 at home against Lugano.

Dynamo Kiev ended thus on the third place with seven points, while the Lugano ended up at the bottom of the league with three points.

So the FCK can send a kind thought to the swiss crew from Lugano, which would otherwise not have had anything other than honor to play for.

There was the reverse plenty at stake for both teams in Copenhagen.

FCK had the ball most in the first half and tilspillede also the greatest chances.

Among other things, got the FCK striker Dame N'Doye completed two times.

After a half hour had N'Doye a skudforsøg, as Malmö-keeper Johan Dahlin was verfet to the corner.

Ten minutes later headede N'Doye past the goal in a situation, where the Malmö-the defense let the 34-year-old senegaleser be completely free.

Malmö also had opportunities to score, but not the completely open and obvious chances.

in turn, played the swedes themselves up to the seven corner kicks in the first half, but it was only dangerous at a single one of them, as Arnór Ingvi Traustason headede past the goal.

in Addition, Malmö, Danish midfielder Anders Christiansen a skudforsøg, but it sat right in the arms of the FCK-keeper Karl-Johan Johnsson.

Forward minutes into the second half opened Anders Christiansen with even a skudforsøg, but this time he was seized out.

Malmö striker Markus Rosenberg, who played his afskedskamp, tried with a header, but it was also not especially dangerous.

After 76 minutes got Rosenberg a greater chance, but Johnsson was in place with a rescue.

a Minute after it went wrong for FCK-defensive, as Traustason got headet ball into the goal via FCK-the stopper Sotirios Papagiannopoulos.

the FCK knew from the start that a draw would be enough, and maybe that's why it was never a sparkling evening for the home team, who played in front of the 32.941 spectators.

With Thursday's defeat is the FCK on from the group stage, and next year, that team must play 16.-delsfinaler.

It is the sixth time in FCK's history that the club goes on to knockoutfasen in Europe.
