Mustafa Amini’s AGF were seconds away from a UEFA Europa League Playoff final, but missed out after conceding an injury-time goal from Marvin Egho in a 1-1 draw with Danish Superliga rivals Randers on Monday morning (AEST).
Amini’s team had taken an away goal from their 2-1 loss in the first leg last Sunday, and were heading through to a Europa League Playoff final against Brondby having taken the lead through a 66th-minute penalty from Swedish striker Tobias Sana.
But Egho fired in the equaliser with the last opportunity of the match, meaning AGF lost the tie 3-2 and finish the Danish Superliga campaign in eighth place. Amini played the full 90 minutes.
