Video: Vardar crashes out from Champions League with 4-1 loss at Copenhagen


Everything that could possibly go wrong for the Macedonian champion, did go wrong on their return leg in Copenhagen.

Gregus put Copenhagen up 1-0 in the second minute of the match after a great long range effort that ended past Gacevski and in Vardar’s net.

But despite this, Vardar received a great equalizer through Nikolov. A 1-1 draw was the perfect scenario for Vardar, it meant now Copenhagen had to score two more goals in order to advance to playoff round.

An own goal by Bersgyan was quite the bad news for Vardar which saw Copenhagen go up 2-1.
In the second half, both teams were rather passive, however things changed once Gregus received a second yellow card. However, despite Copenhagen being a man down, a mistake by Gacevski resulted in 3-1 for the home side.

At the end of the match, as Vardar was trying to score, a counter attack by Copenhagen led to a penalty for a final score of 4-1.
