FC Copenhagen will be the rival of Raków Częstochowa in the fourth qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. One of the most important figures of the best team from Denmark is the Polish goalkeeper Kamil Grabara. The Pole became the hero of Tuesday’s penalty shootout.
It must be admitted that Kamil Grabara has recently become louder and louder. The goalkeeper of FC Copenhagen in the summer transfer window found himself in the sights of several really big clubs. Poles were or still are interested in, among others: Juventus or Bayern Munich, as we have reported in recent weeks.
Kamil Grabara with an unusual cheat sheet for penalty kicks
In Tuesday’s rematch with Sparta Prague, the club from Copenhagen had to sweat a lot to win promotion to the fourth round of the el. Champions League. After a 1:1 draw in Denmark in the second leg, the team with Kamil Grabara between the posts had to equalize twice in extra time, at 2:2 and 3:3 respectively.
In the end, the game was decided by a series of penalty kicks. Grabara was one of the main characters in it. The Pole stopped one shot, he also managed to “enchant” the goal, thanks to which the hosts from Prague failed to put the ball in the net twice. Already during the broadcast it was clear that Grabara used a specially printed cheat sheet from the coaching staff. One of the fans presented what was on the printout used by the Pole.
Grabara’s cheat sheet is nothing new, such practices are quite common during matches that are played in the knockout system.
