Unbeaten title winners face Champions League elimination 

On Tuesday, the Champions League third qualifying round saw the elimination of Red Star Belgrade, Rangers, and Slavia Prague ending their unbeaten domestic seasons. The 1991 European champion was denied the opportunity to face its long-time rival Dinamo Zagreb in the playoff round. After losing 1-0 to Sheriff in Moldova, Red Star faced Champions League elimination on aggregate 2-1. Dinamo won over Legia Warsaw 1-0 to advance 2-1.

Malmö defeated Rangers 2-1 at home, following a 2-1 defeat in Sweden in the first leg last week. Slavia’s 1-0 home win over Ferencváros did not allow them to overcome a two-goal deficit from the first leg.

The United States forward Jordan Siebatcheu scored twice in the first half to rally Switzerland’s Young Boys to a 3-1 win and 4-2 aggregate victory after falling behind early against Cluj. In a rematch of the 1988 final former European champions, Benfica and PSV Eindhoven will meet in the playoffs, after both won 4-0 on aggregate against Spartak Moscow and Midtjylland.

Ludogorets Razgrad, Bulgaria’s champion, defeated Olympiakos in a penalty shootout after the teams were tied 3-3 on aggregate. This season, Ludogorets benefited from the removal of the away-goals rule, which would have previously sent Olympiakos through after a 2-2 second-leg draw.

In each leg to earn a playoff against Monaco, the 2004 Champions League runner-up, Shakhtar Donetsk defeated Genk 2-1. Winning the football match 5-1 on aggregate Monaco defeated Sparta Prague 3-1 at home on Tuesday.

Both the Czech Republic and Scotland have had their teams eliminated before the playoff round, which will take place over the next two midweeks. The draw for the 32-team group stage will take place on August 26 in Istanbul.
