2019-20 UEFA Champions League

Postby seand » Mon Oct 08, 2018 8:10 am

Too early for a 2019-20 Champions League thread? Is it fukk!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019%E2%8 ... ons_League

Dundalk will enter in the first qualifying round, which consists of 34 teams (33 teams straight in, plus one of the four preliminary round participants.)
Dundalk will be seeded in the first qualifying round. This is 99.99% guaranteed. (I reckon we'll end up being ranked about 12th-15th of the 34 first round teams.) Non-seeds we could draw will include the champions of Albania, Armenia, Bosnia, Estonia, Faroes (HB), Georgia, Iceland (Valur), Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Monetenegro, Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Wales and the preliminary round winners from Andorra/San Marino/Gibraltar/Kosovo. And probably Luxembourg and Sweden.
With a massive amount of luck it's just possible we could be seeded in the second qualifying round, but it's highly unlikely. More on this towards the end of the 2018-19 season!

Once again, while there's no formal regionalisation of the draw, we might expect to be grouped mostly with the northern teams- NI, Wales, Lux, Iceland, Sweden and the Baltics, but Champions League regional groups tend to be a lot more fluid than Europa League ones, so it's quite possible we'll end up in, say, Armenia or Bosnia.
