Unluckiest team of the round goes to Turk Ocagi Limasol Russellers, having been awarded the first game after their opponents Phoenix Knights failed to field a side, they lost the second leg to a solitary own goal, meaning that despite one win each, the one goal separated the sides and it is Knights who progress to round 2.
