Decision that the red and white club – in a note – claims to learn “with extreme disappointment and disappointment”.
“Our team, which had presented itself regularly in Finland and was unable to play the second leg due to facts beyond our control, would have deserved at least to play for the qualification on the ice, even by virtue of a tight result (1-3) . We consider the decision a moral slap towards both our club, which has always sportingly honored this competition, and towards our fans, some of whom even went to Rauma to follow the match, which was then canceled. sporty, Lukko Rauma instead goes a big good luck for the rest of the competition and congratulations for the victory in the first leg ”.
