Atalanta wins a Dutch match, van Bronckhorst lives in Belgrade

Atalanta Bergamo qualified for the quarter-finals of the European League on Thursday. With three Dutch players in the starting lineup, the Italians beat Bayer Leverkusen, also a Dutch player.

With five Dutchmen inside the streak, the return between Bayer Leverkusen and Atalanta Bergamo was not as spectacular as the first leg in Italy. Atalanta then won 3-2 and had to defend its lead at BayArena. There were Teun Koopmeiners, Marten de Roon and Hans Hateboer at the base in Atalanta. In Leverkusen, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Mitchell Packer appeared. Daley Sinkgraven remained on the bench with the Germans throughout the match. Substitute Jeremy Boga, substitute for Atalanta, scored the only goal of the match in extra time in the second half.

After Benfica, Sporting Braga also did well for Portugal in the Battle of the Labs with the Netherlands. After a home win (2-0) over Monaco, the Portuguese fourth seed Primeira managed to survive at Stade Louis II. Spaniard Abel Ruiz, who was also accurate in the first match, caused more problems for Monaco. Myron Boadaux joined the home team shortly after the break, but couldn’t make the difference. Boadaux saw his teammate Axel Desasse make 1-1 in overtime.

Red Star Belgrade had been hoping that Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Rangers would welcome a scorching evening at Rajko Metic and it was a hopeful start for the Serbs. After the 3-0 defeat in Glasgow, the home team took the lead ten minutes later through Mirko Ivanic. Then Red Star insisted on Alan McGregor’s goal, but the Rangers managed to put out the fire in the Serbs after the break. Ryan Kent saw his shot deflected: 1-1. Red Star eventually won from a penalty kick used by Alfredo Penn in the injury time of the second half.
