Kairat and Dynamo to replay futsal final

Kairat Almaty and FC Dynamo will replay last year's UEFA Futsal Cup final after being matched in the semis in Baku, with hosts Araz Naxçivan to face FC Barcelona.

Kairat Almaty and FC Dynamo will replay last year's UEFA Futsal Cup final to begin this season's four-team event in Baku after the draw was made by Azerbaijan's national football coach Berti Vogts at the city's Hilton Hotel.

Having beaten 2007 winners Dynamo 4-3 in Tbilisi to claim Kazakhstan's first UEFA title, Kairat will be reunited with the Russian side in the opening semi-final on Thursday 24 April. Dynamo lost their second straight final in 2013, just as they had done in 2006 – 12 months before their sole triumph in Murcia.

In the later semi-final, Araz Naxçivan – hosting Azerbaijan's first-ever UEFA final tournament at Baku's Sarhadchi Olympic Sport Complex – will meet 2012 champions FC Barcelona, who were dethroned by Kairat in the semi-finals 12 months ago. Araz finished third in 2010, in their only previous finals appearance.

The third-place play-off and final will take place on 26 April. The semi-finals and final will be live on Eurosport, which will also carry delayed coverage of the third-place match.

Finals schedule (all times CET, Baku time is three hours ahead)
Semi-finals: Thursday 24 April
15.30: Kairat Almaty (KAZ, holders) v FC Dynamo (RUS)
18.00: Araz Naxçivan (AZE, hosts) v FC Barcelona (ESP)
Third-place play-off: Saturday 26 April, 16.00
Final: Saturday 26 April, 18.30
