Teuta Durres vs Sheriff – Champions League Preview
Teuta have already been through a decent amount of activity during the summer window and the club are building up anticipation ahead of the Super Cup final appearance. Before the Super Cup commitments, though, the Champions League takes precedence for the team who have never been in this competition before. Up until now, the performances in the Europa League qualifying stages have not been great for Teuta, who have had a tendency to suffer big defeats.
Sheriff have a lot of history in the Champions League after having been a consistent name in the qualifying rounds for a while. However, the team has never been able to get past the fourth round – something that they managed during the 2009-10 campaign. In recent seasons, the second round has been a ceiling for Sheriff, who have reasons to worry after starting the new domestic campaign with a defeat.
