In the fifth round of the European Football League, Fenerbahce suffered a 1-0 defeat against Olympiacos Piraeus, and it was decided that the Turkish team could no longer reach the eighth final of the tournament. He was replaced by Attila Szalay in the 78th minute in Fener.

In the fourth set, as the Turkish champion (Galata – Fener 1–2), Atila Szalay was only benched in Fenerbahce against Olympiacos Piraeus, but unlike the champion, the Hungarian defender was deployed to replace El. Szalai entered the field in the 78th minute, but could not be part of the joy: he lost the match with a goal from Olympiacos in the 90th minute. This also means that Fenerbahce will not be able to reach the eighth final of the European League. On the other hand, it became certain that Szalai could continue in the Association of the European Congress. Although the result of Antwerp could reach the Turks in third place in the group, the results against each other are favorable to Fener.
The situation in Group C is the strongest in the entire European League, with the four teams still having a chance to replace the group before the round. Well, after two days of playing, only two points separate Leicester City and Legia Warszawa, so before the sixth round, all four teams still have a chance to advance to the eighth final.
In Group Two, Monaco managed to secure their place among the 16 by defeating Real Sociedad.
