The Saints secured a 2-0 win against nine men Prishtina to earn a money-making clash against Glasgow Rangers. Federico Martin Villar and Juan Penaloza grabbed the goals after Leotrim Bekteshi and Armend Dallku were sent off for Prishtina.
It was an even affair in the first half, with both teams not giving too much away. The second half was completely different with both teams knowing what was at stake and both pressing forward and applying pressure. It was a warm night at Victoria Stadium, and tempers were flaring until the 48th minute when both Prishtina players Bekteshi and Dallku were giving their marching orders within a minute!
St Joseph’s took full advantage and kept pressing when from a corner Saints defender Villar headed in to make it 1-0, and set up an interesting last 15 minutes. It sparked 9 men Prishtina into attacking St Joseph’s, but a loss in possession in midfield cost the Kosovon side when St Joseph’s caught Prishtina’s defence on the counter-attack and a square ball across the goal was met by Saints forward Penaloza to make it 2-0.
It was nervy moments in the ast 5 minutes of extra time, and Pristina were not giving up likely, keeping saints keeper Mateo with a last ditch effort on goal! But St Joseph’s held on to make it through into the first round of the Europa League for the first time against Scottish side Glasgow Rangers.
