Beitar begins European quest with road trip to Kazakhstan

Less than five weeks after playing its final match of the 2014/15 season, Beitar Jerusalem gets 2015/16 underway on Thursday when it visits Ordabasy Shymkent in Kazakhstan in the first leg of the Europa League first qualifying round.

Beitar will be playing in Europe for the first time since 2008 after ending last season in fourth place.

“Ordabasy is a strong team but we believe in ourselves,” said new coach Slobodan Drapic, who will be guiding Jerusalem for the first time. “We will do our best to record a result which will allow us to decide the tie at home.”
