First they have to play Leiria...
And despite I think Genk is favorite, as average portuguese teams are usually rubish in Euro cups, I don't think it will be easy for them. But really thinking about it... Genk should be a team the same size of Leiria in Belgium. So we never know.
Still too soon to say, because Lille (or the croatians, which I doubt) will probably be able to defeat both teams.

Genk is a more experienced team in European competitions last years than Lille, as I remember.
Lille higher seeding is only because of the French successes last years, I don't remember Lille participating in European competitions last years.
Genk, on the contrary, participated in the CL a couple of years ago, so they should be an experienced and tough team, almost in the level of Anderlecht and Brugge. Lille is just a French mid-table team.

Funny :-)

We have playing champion's league in 2001-2002

games against Parma, Manchester, Deportivo and Olympiakos

we finish in third place, so we play against fiorentina and finally dortmund

next year, we play intertoto, and we win against aston villa, but loose against Stuttgart (always german teams :-( )

Sorry lillois, I didn't know that. I meant no offence.
Thanks for the information! (:

no problem with that :-)

i found just funny that you know the participation of Genk in CL, and not Lille, who play just one year before genk :-)

I think that Genk is a good team too, but i don't agree when you say that there are good as Brugge or Anderlecht. they are JUST a LITTLE under them :-)

Well, it looks like Leiria is in a better condition now... They have a home game. How didn't Genk manage to score?

The reason why Genk didn't manage to score, is because they didn't get the ball behind the keeper and in between the goal posts. And that is a 100% correct answer to your question.

Well, as obvious, Genk will NOT win intertoto! Hurray for Big Leiria!! Leiria is in her 16th match without losing, so my hunch that Leiria will be on UEFA cup gains more weight as we're moving forward...

Lille? They could not even win to belupo... I hope this shows lack of preparation in behalf or the portuguese team. :D

Let's see if Portugal can cope with that: from 4 to 7 teams in 1 year!!
