AEK is through to the Champions League final play-offs

·

AEK Athens stunned Croatian counterparts Dinamo Zagreb with two late goals to secure place in the Champions League final play-off qualifying round.

By the 92nd minute of the match against Dinamo at the OPAP Arena, AEK were down 2-0, and it looked as though AEK’s European journey would end. But Sergio Araujo struck two minutes into added time to level matters, only for Domagoj Vida to score the winner 10 minutes later – in the 102nd minute – to put the Greek side into the play-offs.

The game finished 2-2 on Saturday, but AEK Athens progressed 4-3 on aggregate.

AEK will face Belgium’s Royal Antwerp in the final play-off round for a spot in the 2023/24 group stages.
