Australia will have two representatives in the UEFA Champions League this season after Tommy Oar’s club joined Tom Rogic in the group stages this [Thursday] morning.
OAR’S APOEL DO ENOUGH
After a 2-0 win in the first leg at home last week, APOEL put up a superb defensive performance to get a goalless draw in the return leg against Slavia Prague this morning.
While Oar played 52 minutes of the first leg triumph, the speedy winger wasn’t in the squad which played in the Czech Republic.
He’ll now await which clubs his Cypriot side will play in the group stage, with the draw to be held on Friday morning (AEST).
CELTIC PROGRESS DESPITE LOSS
24 hours before Oar’s side went through, Rogic ensured Celtic would also be in the group stages with an 8-4 aggregate win over Astana.
Despite losing Wednesday’s second leg 4-3 in Kazakhstan, the Hoops did the damage in the first leg in Scotland where they won 5-0.
Rogic was a 57th minute substitute on Wednesday, playing a hand in Celtic’s last goal.
