Slaven Belupo football club from Koprivnica joined Hajduk Split last night in causing a huge upset in the 3rd qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League when they beat former Europa League finalists Athletic Bilbao 2:1 in Koprivnica last night (Thurs).
"This is the biggest victory in the club's history," said a proud Roy Ferencina, Slaven Belupo's coach. The small Koprivnica club outplayed the former finalists, who had Spanish representative Fernando Llorente and one the most promising young players in the world, Iker Muniain in their line-up.
Goals from Alen Maras and Mario Gregurina for the Croatian side had the Spanish side on the ropes but a reply from Muniain gave Bilbao the important goal they needed.
The 2:1 win was not enough for Slaven Belupo, who are nicknamed the Pharmacists, to progess through to the next round after they lost the first leg match in Spain 3:1.
