Sierra Leone international Alhaji Kamara was named on the bench as his Randers side played to a 1-1 draw with Galatasaray SK in the first of their Europa League qualifier at Ceres Park in Denmark.

The Danish side described the tie as a fantastic match in a fantastic setting after a 1-1 draw at home on Thursday night.

Kamara, who has scored twice in Randers opening three games in the Danish Superleague this season, was an unused substitute in the first leg doubleheader.

The visitors scored a vital 22 minute away goal from Karem Aktürkoğlu before Frederick Lauenborg level the scoreline in the 54-minute to give his side a chance ahead of the second leg in Turkey.

The return fixture is set for Thursday, 26 August, and Kamara will be hoping he can play some part to help his club advance at the Türk Telekom Stadyumu.

Patrik Carlgren – Mikkel Kallesøe, Simon Piesinger, Erik Marxen, Björn Kopplin – Tobias Klysner, Lasse Berg Johnsen, Frederik Lauenborg, Simon Tibbling – Vito Hammershøy-Mistrati, Marvin Egho.

The bench:

Jonas Dakir, Jakob Ankersen. Tosin Kehinde, Mads Enggård, Jesper Lauridsen, Oliver Bundgaard Kristensen, Karl Dreier Leth, Issah Salou, Filip Bundgaard Kristensen, Nicolai Brock-Madsen, Alhaji Kamara.
