KMF Tango Sarajevo had already booked their progress on Wednesday in one of the three sections that concluded today. Of the five that finish on Saturday, only Hamburg from those groups know they are through. The group winners all progress to the main round, taking place from 1-6 October.
Baku United FC, making their debut as English champions, ended the hopes of Albania's KS Ali Demi4-1. Arnaldo Pereira, a 2010 winner with SL Benfica, scored after 31 seconds and added a second to restore his team's lead later in the first half. Betinho and Marcelo hit further goals for Chema Jiménez's side who must next beat hosts Wisła Kraków on Saturday to top a section reduced to three teams by KF Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje's withdrawal.
Debutants KMF Tango Sarajevo clinched top spot yesterday having beaten both hosts Wrexham Futsal Club and ASA Ben Gurion. The Israeli champions took second place by overcoming debutants Wrexham 7-0.
MFK VitEn Vitebsk of Belarus retained their advantage in the group courtesy of a 4-2 defeat of Eden College Futsal that ended the hopes of the Irish side, who had led at half-time. Had Göteborg Futsal Club not beaten Perth Saltires, Vitebsk would have been through, but although the Scottish side held a four-goal lead early in the second half, the Swedish champions made a remarkable comeback to win 5-4, their five goals coming in a six-minute spell. However, Göteborg remain two points adrift of Vitebsk, who they need to beat on Saturday.
Athina '90 are through after winning the group with a 6-2 victory against Víkingur Ólafsvík. Hosts Víkingur had needed to beat Athina as they trailed on goal difference but the Greek competition regulars won comfortably to secure their return to the main round.
