Football (UEFA Champions League)
again lost to CSKA in the UEFA Champions League,
this time 0-1.
FC Pyunic lost its chances for entering the third
qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League
competition after it suffered a 1-0 from Bulgaria's
CSKA Sofia in the second leg match of the second
qualifying round played on Wednesday August 6
in Sofia at Balgarska Armia stadium.
After 0-2 defeat in Yerevan Pyunic must have
beaten CSKA with the difference of at least two
goals in an away return match to be able to continue
its way to the third round.
Although dominating control of the match, Pyunic
failed to capitalize on several scoring opportunities.
The defeat ended hopes of a long-expected Armenian-Turkish
match which would have been on the schedule had
Pyunic won on aggregate.
Despite the crush of Pyunic in UEFA Champions
League Armenian, clubs will continue their participation
at the UEFA competitions.

Banants will take place on August 14 as part of
