Thomas Doll wants to enter the Champions League with APOEL Nicosia

The German coach had taken over his new club APOEL Nicosia from Cyprus only a week ago - after a 1: 2 home defeat in the third qualifying round against FK Karabach. On Tuesday evening, Doll won his first game as an APOEL coach. A 2-0 second-leg win at the Azerbaijani champions saw his team make another surprising turn in this knockout duel and now they can continue to dream of the European premier class.

"This is a fantastic moment for a wonderful club, we are very happy," said Doll after his spectacular debut. "Actually, I have not had much to do with this success, I've only been here four or five days, but for me it's great to play a Champions League qualifier in Baku, because I have not had an easy season behind me."

Winning against Ajax Amsterdam with Cyprus's champion of the past seven years is likely to be about as tough a challenge as beating Hannover 96 in the past season. Doll only joined the Lower Saxony at the end of January, took over a team that was not put together by him on the 17th place in the table and could only fail at this task.

Ajax also seems to be such an overwhelming opponent as a Champions League semi-finalist in the spring of 2019 that APOEL has already tweeted to Nikosia: "Hi AFC Ajax ... We're waiting for you, we're playing against a European giant with honor and pride nothing to lose, see you on Tuesday. "

On the other hand, Dolls Club has achieved more with the entry into the playoffs more than other long-term guests of the Champions League on Tuesday was granted. The three-time European Cup winner FC Porto failed to the Russian club FK Krasnodar. Celtic Glasgow flew out of Romania against CFR Cluj. And in the duel between FC Copenhagen and Red Star Belgrade, a decisive penalty shoot-out required a total of 22 attempts before the Serbs and their German former international Marko Marin prevailed 7: 6.
