Yeah, good news about standing terraces. Here's a link:Some shocks in the qualifiers, with the main one being Olympiacos who were expected to reach the group stage losing 4-0 at home to Maccabi Haifa. Some other minor ones and a turnaround from Bodo Glimt who lost the first leg at Linfield 1-0, winning the second 8-0.
Confirmed 3rd Round qualifiers (first leg next week)
Maccabi Haifa v Apollon Limassol
Qarabag v Ferencvaros
Ludogorets Razgrad v Dinamo Zagreb
Sheriff v Viktoria Plzen
Bodo Glimt v Zalgiris
Red Star Belgrade v Pyunik
AS Monaco v PSV Eindhoven
Dynamo Kyiv v Sturm Graz
Union Saint Gilloise v Rangers
Benfica v Midtjylland
Also updated provisional groups on page one which changed slightly after the Olympiacos elimination.
It may also have been missed, but UEFA are allowing clubs to have standing sections in the stadiums this season. No real impact at our home games, but this should mean there are more tickets available if we draw a German side, and they should be a little cheaper too. There are usually seated tickets available in the away end as well for those that want to sit. For reference, Dortmund's ground will hold over 81k with standing allowed, whereas when they have played in Europe until now, the seats reduce it to under 66k.
I hope it's not going to be the same as the first 2 games this season where away tickets have sold out well above the thresholds of last year, or many of us won't be going anywhere.Started doing euro aways towards the end of last season. Did portugal and Spain. Would love Germany, Italy, Belgium etc this year, ideally teams we've already played where demand will be low
