So near for Grevenmacher

CS Grevenmacher 2-0 Anorthosis Famagusta FC (Agg: 2-3) Luxembourg side just miss out.

CS Grevenmacher 2-0 Anorthosis Famagusta FC (Anorthosis win 3-2 on aggregate)
Cypriot representatives Anorthosis Famagusta FC are into the first round of the UEFA Cup - despite losing 2-0 in Luxembourg tonight.

Hope for hosts
CS Grevenmacher, beaten 3-0 in the away leg of the qualifying round tie two weeks ago, always looked determined to produce an unlikely comeback, and they gave themselves hope on 34 minutes when Manzangale Handu put them ahead on the night.

Equaliser elusive
However, the visitors held firm, and it was not until three minutes before full time that German midfield player Christian Albrecht scored Grevenmacher's second, and an aggregate equaliser proved elusive.

'Tactically wise'
After the game, Grevenmacher coach Herbert Herres said: "I want to pay a big compliment to my players. I thought we deserved to win. We played tactically wise throughout the match and I hope this win will give us a boost for the domestic championship."
