The Nottingham Panthers will tonight be battling the European giants squad Zurich Lions in front of a packed crowd at the Motorpoint Arena at seven o’clock.

The Panthers have been setting new records in the CHL this season after being ranked 32nd out of the 32 teams involved. Nottingham had qualified for the CHL when they lifted the Continental Cup in January and became the first British team ever to win a European title.

Zurich are 3-1 up from the first leg of this Champions Hockey League tie.

A place in the quarter-finals is at stake for the team with the most goals on aggregate by the end of today’s match.

A club spokeswoman said today:

Obviously we are big underdogs, but that’s fine. There’s no pressure on us, the players are all pumped up for it, the fans have bought into the TUESDAY is BELIEVE DAY campaign and with their loud support which is inevitable we’ve got our fingers crossed for another miracle on ice.
