17 August 2023 – The champion of Kosova, FC Ballkan has successfully passed the third round in the Conference League, after scoring a victory in the return match against the team from Gibraltar, Lincoln Red Imps. After the 2:0 win at “Fadil Vokrri” stadium a week ago, Ilir Daja’s team confirmed the transition to the “play-off” phase with a 3:1 away win. The goals for Ballkan were scored by Meriton Korenica (48′), Edvin Kuç (64′) and Qëndrim Zyba (90’+), while the only goal for hosts was scored by Juampe Rico (66′). In the “play-off”, the champion of Kosova will most likely face the loser of the Belarusian team, BATE Borisov, which lost 5:1 to Sheriff Tiraspol in the first match of the third round in the European League.
