PAOK Fails Once Again to Make Champions League Groups

GENEVA — Krasnodar and Midtjylland will make their Champions League debuts after advancing through the qualifying playoffs on Wednesday.

Russian club Krasnodar beat PAOK Thessaloniki 2-1 in the second leg in Greece to go through 4-2 on aggregate.

Danish champion Midtjylland needed an 84th-minute penalty to finally take the lead against Slavia Prague, then added two more late goals in a 4-1 win. The teams played a goalless draw in the Czech Republic last week.

Salzburg completed its expected passage to Thursday’s group-stage draw by beating Maccabi Tel-Aviv 3-1, and advanced 5-2 on aggregate.

Salzburg will play in the lucrativeg tournament for the second straight year under American coach Jesse Marsch.

Zambia forward Patson Daka scored in each half for Salzburg on a prolific night for players from African nations.

Midtjylland trailed to a third-minute goal by Slavia’s Nigeria international Peter Olayinka, then leveled in the 65th through Sory Kaba of Guinea. Another Nigerian, Frank Onyeka, got Midtjylland’s third goal.

Midtjylland will go into the lowest-ranked seeding pot on Thursday. Salzburg and Krasnodar will be in the pot of third-seeded teams.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
