Rovers beaten by classy AIK in Tallaght


Shamrock Rovers face an uphill struggle in their quest to reach the next round of the Europa League qualifiers after they went down 1-0 to an impressive second-half showing from AIK at Tallaght Stadium.

Although the Swedish outfit didn’t make the breakthrough until the 74th minute, they were a class above despite looking as though they were playing within themselves.

The goal was the first which 16-year-old Rovers goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu has conceded in senior football, the youngster keeping four clean sheets in his four appearances in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

There was nothing he could do about it as Daniel Sundgren swept the ball past him to finish off a fine, incisive move from the visitors.

The second leg takes place next Thursday with the winners going on to play either Cliftonville (Northern Ireland) or Nordsjælland (Denmark) in the next round.

But after conceding at home and heading to Sweden with a deficit, it looks like mission impossible for Stephen Bradley’s side.
