The small club will enter next season’s Europa League in the Second Qualifying Round.

Yeni Malatyaspor have completed their objective of the season by finishing fifth in the 2018-2019 season of the Turkish Super Lig which means they will get a taste of European football next season.

Shortly after the final whistle ended their duel with Bursaspor, excited fans took to the streets of Malatya waving flags of the club’s logo and celebrating their team’s achievement.
