Details from the match FC Flora – FC Partizan

The Belgians are the only ones from Group B who secured the lane more, while three teams, including the Lions and Whites, competed for second place. The Serbian national team is in the best position, but is far from in good shape, going through a three-game streak without a European win – with two defeats.

Gent is first in the group with ten points, the second is Partizan with seven points, but even if the Lions and Whites beat Anorthosis in the last round, and the Belgians lost to Flora, Gent will be the first due to mutual duels.

Therefore, white and black go further if they win, but also if they draw against a team from Cyprus. Even if Flora beat Gent and Partizan played a tie, the black and white would pass due to the goal difference, while the Estonians would remain in third place on the table with the same number of points – eight.

The defeat will eliminate the black and white from Europe, in this case Anorthosis will be the second and go to the 16th final of the Conference League, that is, the goal difference will determine whether Flora celebrates against Gent, which is not very important for Alexander. Stanovich’s team.

The date of the sixth round of the conference league, December 9:

18.45 Ghent – Flora
