    The preliminary round draw was already made and unlike the Champions League qualifying these are two leg ties. The draw for the 1st round will be tomorrow (June 18) and the 2nd round will take place the following day (June 19). There are a total of 4 rounds to qualify for the Europa League (not counting preliminary). The participants from the 'big 5' leagues enter pretty early, already in the 2nd round

    PRELIMINARY ROUND (June 27 & July 4)
    Progres Niederkorn (LUX) vs. Cardiff Metropolitan University (WAL)
    La Fiorita (SME) vs. Engordany (AND)
    St. Julia (AND) vs. Europa (GIB)
    Ballymena United (NIR) vs. NSI Runavik (FAR)
    Pristina (KOS) vs. St. Joseph's (GIB)
    KI Klaksivik (FAR) vs. Tre Fiori (SME)
    Barry Town (WAL) vs. Cliftonville (NIR)

    UEFA have created the groupings for the first round draw tomorrow, too many teams to mention so here is the direct link: UEFA Europa League first qualifying round draw

    Not too many notable clubs start in the 1st round but here are some of them: Legia Warsaw, Steaua Bucharest, Glasgow Rangers

    In the 2nd round teams such as Roma, Eintracht Frankfurt, Espanyol, Wolves, Strasbourg enter

    2nd round draw was completed today, won't go through all the ties but here are who the teams from the top leagues drew

    Roma vs. Debrecen/Kukesi
    Wolves vs. Crusaders/B36
    Radnicki Nis/Flora Tallinn vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
    Espanyol vs. Stjarnan/Levadia Tallinn
    Strasbourg vs. Maccabi Haifa/Mura
    AZ Alkmaar vs. Hacken (SWE)

    Roma had to cancel their ICC Tournament this summer in the US to play this early, surely a financial hit for them too. Wolves will probably be hoping for Crusaders and a short trip. Frankfurt go from semifinals of the EL to playing likely a middling team in Serbia in July

    Looking at regional rivalries (which is what I do with these early round draws :D), Rangers is on pace to play Cork City. In terms of travel there is a potential match between a Kazakh-Portuguese sides, must be one of the longest possible flights within UEFA barring Iceland

    I hope Espanyol finds their way into the group stage this coming season, I really enjoyed watching Melendo this past season.

    UEFA announced today they will uphold the decision of the Belgian arbitrage court to not let KV Mechelen play in Europa this season. So Standard Liege will go straight to the group stage, FC Antwerp will go to the 3rd qualifying round, and AA Gent will start in the 2nd qualifying round next week against FC Viitorul from Romania.

    1st qualifying round was concluded tonight and most ties have seen logical results, still a couple of surprises though; Kilmarnock, who finished 3rd behind Celtic and Rangers last year, went out against Connah's Quay of Wales,
    and Hajduk Split were eliminated at home against FC Gzira United (Malta) after winning the first leg 2-0 in Malta. Also, Spartak Trnava are currently going to penalties against Bosnian club FK Bijeljina. Trnava made the group stage last year. And two teams from Luxembourg and a team from the Faroe Islands qualified for the next round as well.

    If Rijeka can get to a group stage, why can Hajduk never do it? Is if a matter of bad ownership?

    Rijeka had some money behind them when Volpi owned them and bought good players for Cro league standards (a young Kramaric being the best example) and Matjaz Kek was a good manager. Last few years they have regressed a bit in Europe and are using more young players but still successful domestically

    Hajduk is a mess from top to bottom, new president every year, about 2 managers a season at, poor scouting and an underachieving youth academy. Also the fan group Torcida has too much power and they are in a war with the Croatian football federation which causes too many distractions and is basically an excuse for their poor results (HNS is generally pro-Dinamo but that’s not the main reason why Hajduk is bad, Rijeka winning a title recently shows that).

    Long story short Hajduk doesn’t really have an owner in the traditional sense, the city owns majority with about 25% ownership belonging to the fans who buy memberships in the club (basically similar to the Barcelona system at a much lower scale) and they vote on the executive committee. Torcida is also very much against foreign ownership and pretty much is against anybody outside of Dalmacija (southern Croatia) being involved with the club so this structure is here to stay but results like today will build pressure on them

    All you can do is laugh at them. They are so horribly mismanaged and in their own heads they make the Ottawa Senators look like the 70s Montreal Canadiens. They are being held hostage by a handful of thugs and let the street run their club.

    The people who orchestrated last year's Trnava "miracle" got into conflict with some local entities and ended up leaving the team midway through last year, so it's not really a surprise that their level has dropped. What was a bigger deal in Slovakia was Slovan Bratislava falling to Sutjeska Nikšić (in the CL)

    Craiova-Honved was heading to penalty kicks by one of the goalline refs (I guess UEFA still uses these) was hit in the head with an object from the crowd so the match is suspended. A couple of games in ET right now, notably Zrinjski-Utrecht as the Dutch side in danger of going out. Some upsets too, Pyunik from Armenia eliminated Jablonec while first time Polish champions didn't have a great Euro campaign after being eliminated by a Latvian side

    Utrecht are out with Hajduk reject Ivan Lendric getting the winning goal. Poor showing by Hungarian clubs with Videoton losing to Vaduz in ET

    Steaua Bucharest who won the first leg away 3:0 could throw that all away, losing now 3:1 early 2nd half and down to 10 men

    Wolves are probably “thrilled” to be going all the way to Armenia a couple days before the open of the EPL season. Three Dutch sides involved with PSV and Feyenoord getting winnable ties, you would assume AZ are favorites against Mariupol but Ukrainian sides tend to be tricky games even beyond Dynamo/Shakhtar. Frankfurt will be happy with Vaduz, close trip and a side they should beat easily. Rijeka-Aberdeen is a rematch from a few years ago where Aberdeen surprisingly won 3:0 in Rijeka which isn't each to do

    The crowd in Frankfurt was pretty impressive last night.
    48,000 vs. Tallinn is not bad. Apparently the Eintracht-fans gave the Tallinn players an ovation after the match.
    By all accounts a pretty great atmosphere.

    League route draw for the EL playoff round. Some very interesting potential ties with Torino/Wolves and Strasbourg/Frankfurt.
    Pretty good draw for Dutch and Belgian teams. Gent, PSV and Feyenoord really should qualify (although Feyenoord lost against Trencin last year). AZ and Antwerp could meet eachother with a group stage ticket on the line.

    There is a tie in the champions route, Ararat/Saburtalo vs. Dudelange/Nomme Kalju where one of these will make the ELGS. Dudelange made it last year remember but if Ararat or Nomme Kalju win the tie it will be the first time that a club from Armenia/Estonia has made a group stage of UEFA competition. For Georgia it would be the first time since 2004

    Decent draw for Zrinjski if they can bet past Malmo, while the Swedes are favorites its not impossible. Only issue is Zrinjski have to play at a neutral venue at nearby Siroki Brijeg which is a smaller but "modern" stadium

    How do you view Rijeka's chances against Aberdeen and then (probably) Gent?

    Rijeka should progress past Aberdeen but I'm cautious because a few years ago a stronger Rijeka team lost 3:0 to them at home(!) and Croatian clubs and even national team tend to struggle against Scottish clubs/NT for some reason, probably due to the style because nobody in the Croatian league comes close to playing a direct/physical game. The draw against Gent (potentially) is viewed as a good one with the media going as far as saying its the best draw possible :rolleyes: I think Gent would be slight favorites but this Rijeka team is not as strong as the past and they haven't been too convincing despite winning the first three games of the season in the league

    Solid night for Belgian clubs. Gent tied AEK (the Cyprus version) 1-1 after conceding a late goal in Cyprus. Pretty low tempo game due to the immense heat. Gent should finish them off at home.

    Antwerp beat Viktoria Plzen 1-0 at home in their first European game in 25 years :D Fantastic result and thoroughly deserved as well as they dominated most of the game and barely allowed any clear chances to Plzen. I was very unimpressed with Plzen but I expect them to come out much stronger at home next week.

    Dutch teams looking good as well with Feyenoord basically through after beating Tbilisi 4-0, PSV beat Haugesund 1-0 in Norway and AZ get a scoreless draw in Ukraine against Mariupol.

    Not too many problems for the teams from the bigger leagues, Wolves and Frankfurt with easy away wins, Strasbourg won in Bulgaria while Torino and Espanyol are both winning too

    Impressive result for Rangers who won 4:2 in Denmark against Midtjylland, they were up by three goals, Midtjylland cut the deficit to 2:3 but Rangers scored a fourth. Trabzonspor scored twice late to get a valuable 2:2 at Sparta Prague

    Some surprising results: Lithuanian champions Suduva beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv away 2:1, unfortunately for them they conceded late so it keeps MTA in the tie but they will need to win by 2 goals. Apollon is beating Austria Wien with about 20 minutes to go in Austria, not a total surprise as Wien are off to an awful start in their domestic league but Cypriot sides are usually poor outside their home grounds
