Toughest possible draw for Pafos to get Elfsborg.
But will be 2 very interesting games.

Bad draw for Pafos....

Ruzomberok-Tobol and Botev-Maribor are also stronger pairs than then the others.

Wisla got Llapi, they have a chance!

Hunedoara, it's more tricky for them.

I was hoping for Wisla (obviously sorry fellow polish members :D) or Tobol but alas. Maribor was my third choice because they do give seeding status in Q2 unfortunately second game is away.
Any information on Maribor will be very appreciated.

Elfborg - Pafos and Botew - Maribor the most interesting pairs, Tobol Rughomberok maybe, for example, in ECL there is nothing like this in the 1st round

For me Botev - Maribor then Tobol - Ruzomberok are the most interesting ties. The Paks - Corvinul Hunedoara tie has a Magyar flavour to it. Vajdahunyad (Hunedoara) closely connected to the Hunyadi family who gave us Matthias Corvinus (Hunyadi Mátyás), King of Hungary from 1458 until 1490, Hungary's most beloved king. His father János(John) Hunyadi beat the Turks at Nándorfehérvár(today's Belgrade) in 1456. The Pope ordered the bells of every European church to be rung every day at noon to commemorate the victory at Belgrade and the churches still ring the noon bell to this day.

I'd like to see Rijeka and Trabzonspor in the next round from the seeded and Tobol from the unseeded.

Not much of a balance here. Llapi and Vojvodina both unseeded, so they could have given up on groups here as well...

If it wasn't Wisła, I would root for Cercle. With Wisła and this group, the draw doesn't matter a lot unfortunately.
