Hamrun Spartans and Union Raiffeisen Gurten shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw in a friendly match at the DANA Arena in Windischgarsten, Austria on Tuesday.
Rene Wirth put the hosts ahead on the 12th minute but Ailton Jorge dos Santos Soares levelled matters thanks to a penalty during the second half.
This friendly match was the first of two matches which the Spartans are playing in Austria as part of a one-week training camp which they had originally planned ahead of the UEFA Champions League commitments. However with the UEFA Appeals Body declaring Hamrun ineligible to participate in the competition, the club will be using this training camp in preparation for the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
The next match will be played on Friday against 2. Liga (second division) side SK BMD Vorwärts Steyr at the same venue.
