UEFA Futsal Cup finals draw takes place in Baku

13 March 2014 [12:40] - TODAY.AZ
Kairat Almaty and FC Dynamo will replay last year's UEFA Futsal Cup final to begin this season's four-team event in Baku after the draw was made by Azerbaijan football national coach Berti Vogts at the city's Hilton Hotel.

Having beaten 2007 winners Dynamo 4-3 in Tbilisi to claim Kazakhstan's first UEFA title, Kairat will be reunited with the Russian side in the first semi-final on Thursday 24 April. Dynamo lost their second straight final in 2013, just as they did in 2006, 12 months before their sole triumph in Murcia.

In the later semi-final, Araz Naxçivan – hosting Azerbaijan's first ever UEFA final tournament at Baku's Sarhadchi Olympic Sport Complex – will meet 2012 champions FC Barcelona, who lost their title to Kairat in the semi-finals a year later. Araz previously finished third in 2010, in their only previous finals appearance.

The third-place play-off and final will take place on 26 April. The semi-finals and final will be live on Eurosport, which will also carry delayed coverage of the third-place play-off.
