Stella Rossa Vienna and FC Politekhnik Yerevan will meet on Wednesday to decide who goes forward to the Main round of the UEFA Futsal Cup while Hapoel Ironi Rishon Lezion have made a flying start.
Vienna and Yerevan have dominated Preliminary round Group D with the Austrian hosts following up their opening-day success with a 5-1 defeat of Irish debutants Shamrock Rovers FC. Yerevan performed even better with the Armenian challengers winning 8-2 against Scottish hopefuls Fair City Santos. While the Celtic clubs will do battle for the honour of finishing third, the main attraction will be the meeting of Vienna and Yerevan at the Hollgasse Hall.
