    knocked out of cup due to opponent unable to field a squad

    Question if anyone can answer???? A friend told me he lost 4-0 in an away leg playing in the cup, he fielded his weakest squad, reckoning that if he lost he could recover the deficit and score more in the home leg, and win on aggregate by putting his strongest team out...............then the crunch came and the opponent must've had injuries and could not field a team and forfeited the game which was a 3-0 result. So then he was knocked out of the cup on aggregate 4-3(i must admit i laughed a bit). I told him to contact nordeus support but he couldn't be bothered(sayin it's too much hassle). if this really did happen what can you do if not given the chance to win the 2nd leg?

    Someone else had an even worse outcome than this last season, Lost the first leg 3-0 and won the 2nd 3-0 due to forfeit and it was 3-3 aggregate score with no winner on away goals and the team that forfeited ended up in the final, but I don't think we had an official response from Nordeus after such an incident occured.

    We have seen this happen last month. It was even worse, OP lost 3-0 and then won 3-0 by default and did not qualify. It sucks, Nordeus needs to do something about it but I am not confident that their support team will help him.

    On a side note, why would he be goofing off in the 1st leg like that? Did he have an important league match coming up??

I'll tell him he's not the only one. it may cheer him up a bit.

    I'm sure the offending team forfeiting gets expelled from the competition due to not being able to fulfil it's fixtures.

    As per my knowledge, if there is a draw on an aggregate in the 2 legs of any cup on champions league match, and both teams have equal no.s of away goals, then it is decided in the penalties. And that is what should have happened. The guy who had his team ready would have been able to be present 4 penalties while his opponent couldn't. So the guy with the complete squad shud have won!!!
