Sheriff Tiraspol continues in international competition, but this time in the Europa League, after being eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League. The modest Moldovan team will face Braga from Portugal in the round of 32 and will have a significant loss: the Peruvian Gustavo Dulanto will not be able to be in the first leg due to the accumulation of yellow cards.

The defender became one of the main figures of his club and his absence means a big problem for the coach Yuriy Vernydub. Aware of the penalty that he must serve, the center-back decided to express a motivational message for his teammates and fans of the institution.

Thursday begins a new dream for each of us. I will have to support from the outside because of the sanction, but my strength is in each one of my teammates who will represent the entire squad, we are a team that with great courage achieved unimaginable things. Come on Sheriff, to continue writing our history in the big leagues”, Gustavo Dulanto indicated on Instagram.

In the same way, the defender shared some postcards of the squad’s celebration during their participation in the Champions League. Let us remember that the club’s most important result in the Champions League was against Real Madrid, whom they beat 1-2 at the mythical Santiago Bernabéu.

Precisely, in that historic victory against the ‘Merengues’, Gustavo Dulanto was booked, in addition to the two games against Shakhtar. Those three yellow cards caused the central defender to be suspended, although he will have the opportunity to start again in the second leg against Braga, scheduled for February 24, in Portugal.
