The midfielder’s strike was enough for the Swedish topflight outfit as they defeated Jeff Strasser’s men

Fouad Bachirou scored the only goal of the game as Oestersunds got a 1-0 victory over 10-man Fola Esch in a Uefa Europa League third round qualifying tie on Thursday evening.

The French-born Comoros international gave Graham Potter’s men the lead and decider of the first leg encounter in the 50th minute.

A 78th minute red card to Mehdi Kirch saw their Luxembourg counterparts finish the tie with a man less.

The midfielder will be hoping to help his side secure a playoff spot when they head to the Stade Émile Mayrisch for the return fixture on August 3.
