They put two of the three/four strongest seed in group 3, the smaller one (8 teams in total). Unlucky for the unseeded there.

Everyone is lucky in group 1 except for the one that will be paired with Slovan Bratislava. The two weakest (?) seeded teams are there (Lincoln and TNS).

Quite a good pre-draw group for Celje, on paper the strongest unseeded team at this stage.

Unlucky Dinamo Batumi and Ordabasy might be screwed, need to avoid Ludogorets and Steaua, tough group. Borac are in an easy group, lucky.

Virtus obviously the best choice for Ludo here with the next being probably Dinamo Minsk with no home games.

Hi folks, does anyone know what stadium FK Panevėžys plan to use for their CL QR1 tie? I'm unsure if they'll play at their normal home stadium of "Aukštaitija" or at the Sūduva Stadium (as they have done in recent european campaigns)?
CC @LeRonio , I hope you don't mind me mentioning you but you have helped with a Lithuania question in the past

The only potential political exclusion for Q2 would be "the pair involving Pyunik" vs Qarabag, correct?

Then Q2 draw groups could end up looking something like this.

Does anyone know why can't they make a draw for both 1st and 2nd qualifying rounds same day? Why do they split it for 2 days?

After they know the pairings of Q1, they form the groups for Q2, which might take some time I guess.

Hamrun vs Lincoln, here's the chance to see a Maltese team in Groups for the 1st time!

New Saints vs Decic too, either the Welsh or Montenegrin champions (probably Welsh) will have their triple chance!

Klaskvik vs Differdange, nice, another small country with a guaranteed presence in the 2nd round.

Vikingur could have gotten an easier opponent than Shamrock Rovers in the North Group but they will still make it imo.

San Marino and Andorra with really hard draws.
