The KHA Champions League
30-06-2014 20.00 (12/55)
This seasons KHA Champions League final see’s two sides who have never made it to the final before, let alone won the tournament. So the only guarantee in this match is that there will be a new name on the trophy.
Relapse FC and Rochdale United have made names for themselves as two difficult sides to break down, and have their main strengths in defence. Yet both teams this season have shown that this isn’t the only string to their bows and have cast all other teams aside.
Relapse topped group C, after beating both Facey’s Facilitators and Kingsway Hattrick AFC, and drawing against Cliffy’s Dappa Squad. Dale on the other hand faced a tougher group A, losing their opening match 2-1 to RC Obajan, before managing to beat Inter Minge and Angelic United to finish second in the group.
The Quarter-final’s saw Relapse face former winners Recaro Storm, emerging 2-1 winners, whilst Dale won a 6-5 thriller against Rochdale Raiders.
The Semi-final’s saw Relapse face off against RC Obajan, and in hat was a hotly contested battle that could so easily have gone either way, resulted in another 2-1 victory for Relapse and their first Final appearance in the Champions League.
Dale were set to play A.S. Dosolokkupa, and managed to defeat a strong Italian side 2-0, to take their place in the Final, also for the first time, and a chance at history.
Relapse and Dale have previous, having met five times prior to the final, with Dale just shading it, three games to two, but with the last meeting nearly one full year ago, it means a lot of things have changed at both clubs.
Make sure you log in on the 30-06-2014 at 20.00HT/19.00GMT (12/55) and cheer on your chosen team.
