Disappointment for The New Saints in Croatia after conceding two goals in the first leg of the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Croatia champions scored after only five minutes of play, Croatian international Josip Mišić scoring a free kick from the edge of the penalty area.

The New Saints defended well throughout the remainder of the first half, but the home side scored again with 20 minutes of play remaining – Florentin Matei scoring Rijeka’s second.

The second leg will be held ar Park Hall next Tuesday, 18 July.
