Happy with FK Dečić vs TNS! The population of Tuzi is only about 5,000 people!

Lincoln Red Imps vs Ħamrun Spartans is another interesting pair!
The same with Shamrock Rovers vs Víkingur Reykjavík, even though I think the Icelanders are favourites!

Differdange 03 vs KÍ must be one of the strongest pairs, together with Ludogorets Razgrad vs Dinamo Batumi.

Unlucky Dinamo Batumi and Ordabasy might be screwed, need to avoid Ludogorets and Steaua, tough group. Borac are in an easy group, lucky.
Indeed, another disgusting draw. Dinamo Batumi are screwed, the worst possible draw. Ordabasy and Borac are OK.

Poor Dinamo Batumi. Just when a club football in your country is in a big crisis they got the worst draw in the CLq1, reducing chances to reach a GS football significantly.

Could have been better and the second leg is away but Gorets should aim for qualification.

Larne is due to host the 2024 EURO U19 GS games in the week commencing 15 July, which will clash with the Q1 second leg at home.

I'm pissed off by Dinamo Batumi's bad luck. They're the 1st unseeded team with the same points as the last seeded team. Then they're put into a group with a 50% chance to draw either Ludogorets or Steaua. And finally drawn probably the worst possible opponent in Ludogorets for fuck sake. Still, for the neutrals the most intriguing tie, by far.

Danger? In what sense?
