Match Preview

Sheriff hoping for help from elsewhere FC Sheriff manager Andrei Sosnitski is confident his side can keep their Europa League campaign alive, despite their fate resting in the hands of others. The Moldovan champions host fellow Group E strugglers AZ Alkmaar knowing anything less than three points will almost certainly end both sides' bid to progress. But even a win may not be enough for either side, who prop up the group with three points apiece. Dynamo Kiev can sew up the second qualification place if they win at leaders BATE Borisov - an away trip that Sosnitski believes is the hardest in the group. Sosnitski is optimistic of his side's chances of reducing the four-point gap behind Dynamo, especially as his team face an AZ team that has gone pointless since their 2-1 opening win over the Moldovans. "The team is preparing seriously for the game. We understand and know the level of our opponent," Sosnitski said. "They are a strong team, but we know how to play against AZ and we want to implement that. "We are ready. There is a certain excitement about the game, and the players will give all their strength and skill. I believe in them." He added: "We also need a result in the other game - I know the tough task Kiev face. "They arrive in Belarus with a chance to move up to first place. The game will be basic - I expect BATE to finish in first place." Sheriff will be without captain and central defender Vazha Tarkhnishvili due to injury while goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov and Artem Khachaturov could return. AZ have been unbeaten in all competitions since their defeat to Dynamo in the previous round a month ago to improve the mood around the club. Gertjan Verbeek's side have risen up to fifth in the Eredivisie table on the back of their good form, which saw them claim back-to-back wins against high-flyers Ajax and FC Twente before a 2-2 draw against Heerenveen at the weekend. The Dutch side will, however, be without Johann Gudmundsson (hamstring) who scored the opening goal in their win over Sheriff earlier in the competition.

Match Report

Rouamba shines as pair crash out Florent Rouamba's wonder goal earned FC Sheriff a 1-1 Europa League draw at home to AZ Alkmaar but it was not enough to keep them in the competition as both sides went out. The Burkino Faso midfielder arrowed a shot into the bottom left corner from 35 yards in the 54th minute to cancel out Brett Holman's early opener for AZ. The point left the sides joint bottom of Group E on four points with rivals Dynamo Kiev and BATE Borisov comfortably clear on 10. Dynamo's victory over BATE meant even victory would not have been good enough to keep Sheriff's or AZ's hopes of qualification alive. AZ's only points in the group coming into the match had been courtesy of their 2-1 home win over the Moldovans in their first game, but they almost went behind after just six minutes. Goalkeeper Sergio Romero had to be on his toes to tip Jymmy Franca's shot round the post. The visitors were soon into their stride, though, Pontus Wernbloom bringing a smart save out of Dmitri Stajila. And Australia forward Holman put them in front in the 17th minute, finishing Rasmus Elm's ball in from the left low into the near bottom corner. At the other end Franca tested Romero again, although this time it was a routine save for the Argentinian, before AZ came close to extending their lead either side of the interval. First Kolbeinn Sigthorsson saw his effort parried by Stajila and then Wernbloom headed over the top of from Ragnar Klavan's cross. But the Eredivisie outfit were stunned just two minutes late when, out of nothing, Rouamba brought Sheriff level, finding the corner of Romero's net with his right foot from way out. Sigthorsson headed over the top from Stijn Schaars' inswinging corner as AZ sought a response and Franca also went high with a shot for Sheriff. The hosts tried their luck again in the 82nd minute with an Alexander Erokhin volley which went wide, but both sides had long since appeared resigned to their fate.
