Djurgadens will face Hungarian side Ferencvaros in the first qualifying round of the Champions League tomorrow at 19:00hrs at the Groupama Aréna in Budapest.

Should they manage to negotiate their way past Ferencvaros they will face either Scottish giants Celtic or Reykjavik who are waiting in the second qualifying round.

One Comment to Emmanuel Banda and Edward Chilufya off to Hungary ahead of imminent UCL debut

  1. Andy DeRoche says:

    Good luck to Banda and Chilufya tomorrow in Budapest in the Champions League qualifier. This is a wonderful opportunity for a couple of young Chipolopolo boys. Shout out to Mbesuma for scoring a goal today, and also would like to point out the fact that Sunzu has been playing a lot of minutes ( and scoring a goal recently) in China. Overall, things are looking good for the lads as we contemplate qualifying for the next Africa Cup and World Cup.
