Gambia International Momodou Ceesay and Slovakian side MSK Zilina sailed past FC CZ Belehrad to qualify for the cup clash in Antalya, Turkey, on Saturday.
The second runners-up of the 2010/11 Slovakia Superliga and current leaders beat opponents 4-3 on penalties after a one-all draw.
That victory was enough to see them set a final meeting with Romanian side CFR Cluj on Tuesday 7 February 2012, www.mskzilina has revealed.
Ceesay missed a direct kick from teammate Nunez, but the opponent could only manage to save that ball with a kick to the corner and moments later Lazovi?a scored for MSK Zilina, but Pich equalised for Belehrad in Saturday night’s interesting and tough contest.
The Romanian team won the tournament in the inaugural meeting against Bulgarian side Litex Lovech 1-0.
Zilina will also play Ukrainian team Tavrija Simferopol on Monday, February 6, ahead of Tuesday’s game.
The leaders are expected to resume the 2011/12 superliga campaign against Zlaté Moravce on February 25 with 33 points in 18 matches in record so far this season.
“It was a very good match against a tough opponent, forcing us to give them all the power. They played offensive high pressure game making us, especially our rally, coming under pressure. But we also played well and I think it was a draw in regular time fair, because both teams developed goals except for three good opportunities. We look forward to the finals,” said ?.Nosický, MSK Zilina coach, at the end of the game on club’s site.
