I wonder was the headline in the Lux Sun “Dudelange Down in Dumps as Differdange in Dump Dudes Drama”?

Rovers draw Milan at home in Europa league. This is what Hendrick misses out on when he signed for Newcastle.

Absolute sickener for Rovers that it’ll be behind closed doors

You’d feel sorry for Rovers fans.

Almost.

Well that’s another kick in the bollox for Rovers. They can only sell the Irish TV rights. Italian rights and ROW rights are in the domain of Milan as per the Bohs Financial director

He called his shot a few days ago and now has gotten his wish as :bulgaria: Lokomotiv Plovdiv will host Tottenham Hotspur,

A lot of the unseeded teams play host in this 2nd qualifying round

Meanwhile after a great first round qualifying for :albania: getting all 3 team through Kukesi have drawn :de: Wolfsburg and Teuta v :es: Granada so very tough matches ahead for them. :open_mouth:

@GuyIncognito You could say that for a lot of these unseeded teams. I’m sure Coleraine would’ve had a full house against Motherwell regardless of 2 legs or not. Just an unfortunate situation we are in. :frowning:

The brother played for Black Diamonds in the Leinster senior or junior league about 39 years ago. Their manager was Mick o brien who was Athlone s keeper that day. Think he saved a pen in the san siro game .

A work colleague (Chelsea fan) messaged me on MS Teams…
“in the europa league qualifying it’s spurs v lokomotif limsick or something… have you heard of them?”

My reply… “Lokomotif Leizig?” was my reply.

He comes back… “No, Spurs… apparently a small, North London club”.

:netherlands: Willem II brushed aside their Benelux little brothers yesterday :luxembourg: Progres Niederkorn 5-0 and :faroe_islands: B36 won dramatically on penalties to ensure two Faroese teams in the hat for the 3rd qualifying round next week.

Big day for Shamrock Rovers getting a glamour tie against Milan and Lokomotiv Plovdiv hosting Tottenham at home in one leg winner takes all ties. Best of luck to both of them.
