No. 205: Murata (San Marino)

Murata was crushed 9-0 in its Champions League tie against IFK Goteborg (Sweden) in the first qualification round, the worst defeat in the Champions League this year. Goteborg went on to lose 5-3 in its tie against Basel (Switzerland) in the second qualification round.

The Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio hasn't gone all that much better for Murata, last year's champions. Murata is third in Group B, nine points behind group leaders Tre Fiori. Still, third place would be good enough to qualify for the championship playoffs, and Murata (and Juvenes/Dogana) are still alive in the domestic cup which grants the winner a UEFA Cup spot.
