Friborg-Gottéron traveled to Munich for the second leg with the mortgage of a 2-4 home defeat. Against EHC Red Bull, the National League club took a 2-0 lead as requested, but they didn’t have the time. After a 2-3 defeat, Gottéron was eliminated.

Friborg put forward with a double strike, Chris DiDomenico with a deflector and Samuel Walser with a precise shot over the shoulder of Munich’s goalie Danny from the Birken scored within 62 seconds to make the guests 2-0.

One evening after the ZSC Lions, the last remaining Swiss representative was eliminated. The Zurich had failed because of the Swedish representative Rögle.

Borussia Dortmund said goodbye to the Champions League with a 1: 3 at Sporting. The bankruptcy in Lisbon has shown that BVB lacks class on the European stage and that injuries to key players cannot be compensated.

It was the 69th minute of the game in Lisbon when Borussia Dortmund’s Steffen Tigges was sent behind Sporting’s defensive line with a pass when the score was 2-0. The 23-year-old processed the ball, but hesitated briefly and before he could complete from the left, Sporting defender Sebastian Coates was ready to block the shot. Tigges had the chance to wake up BVB again, but in the end the substitute striker acted just like one – and not like the abstinent top scorer Erling Haaland.
