Albania's Teuta, Granada's first rival in Europe

The Nasrid group started as head of the group and the Teuta of Albania played for its premiere in Europe on September 17. The meeting will be a single match and at home


El Teuta of Albania will be Granada's first rival in their debut in the Europa League. Diego Martínez's team, who started as seed in the second round of the continental tournament, will play against the unknown Albanian team on September 17, in a single game and at home.

The Nazari team will therefore have to travel to Durrës to play against the Albanian team that finished fifth in their league and their squad base is from their native country. A classic of the highest Albanian category that has more than one hundred years of life, where it has been a whopping 80 seasons and that has in its windows a league (1993-94) and six runners-up, in addition to four Cups, of which it is current champion and where he won the ticket to the European competition.

The Albanian team is coming from the first round, where they beat Beitar Jerusalem 2-0 at their stadium, which is their second consecutive Europa League appearance. In total, it has five participations in the Europa League, this season being the first to pass the first round, five from UEFA and three from Intertoto. In total, in Europe they have only made three qualifying rounds of their 16 appearances (one from UEFA, one from Intertoto and one from Europa League).

Granada will have its European premiere at the 13,000-capacity Stadioni Niko Dovana, although the match will be behind closed doors. A duel in which the pass will be decided which, in the event of a tie, would go first to extra time and then to penalties.
