The UEFA Appeals Body has declared Levski Sofia’s appeal for a rematch against Ħamrun Spartans in the UEFA Europa Conference League inadmissable, on Tuesday.
Levski Sofia had filed a complaint to UEFA against the result of their Conference League defeat to Ħamrun Spartans after the referee failed to spot a Maltese player’s infringement before scoring a crucial goal.
Reports said on Saturday that the Bulgarian side had filed a protest to the European governing body UEFA over the Spartans’ second goal scored by Ryan Camenzuli.
Levski contended that Romanian referee Istvan Kovacs had committed a technical error when after the Bulgarian side score their equaliser, he failed to spot that Dodo had run beyond the halfway line before play resumed before the kick-off.
The appeal was heard by the UEFA UEFA Control, Ethics, and Disciplinary Board.
Ħamrun are now cleared to face Partizan Belgrade of Serbia in Thursday’s historic play-off matchup. The Maltese side is expected to travel to Serbia on Tuesday afternoon.
