Hapoel Beer Sheva might get a tricky opponent from group 2.

Maccabi Haifa, on the other hand, can be much more relaxed towards their draw in group 9, so I'm happy for them.

Absolutely.

If they pick 6 vs 1 it would be a disaster for Norway and one of the most unlucky draw for a country at a stage like this.

If AEK draws Floriana or Tre Penne, it will be a dream draw for Greek clubs!

Velež Mostar or Inter Club d'Escaldes! We won't complain!

AEK draw Velez Mostar again, the team that handed them their most historic humiliation in Europe a few years ago.

A chance for redemption.

So a recap:
HBS-Cherno More - the israelis return to Bulgaria a year later.And again the second leg is in Bulgaria which is always a bonus. idk if there will be any games in Israel?! I guess no but idk.This was probably the best draw for our team as HBS give a seeding status in Q3 and considering that the rematch is in Bulgaria i hope it ends as last year.
Botev-U. Craiova - the same as Cherno More probably the best draw available.No chance of a seed in Q3 plus second leg in Romania.Considering what happenned in the two ties last year between us and romanian clubs i am not optimistic.
1948-Malisheva/Buducnost - well third time in a row probably the best option available for our team.Theres a chance of Q3 seeding status.Two teams above Buducnost need to fall and Buducnost to not fail themselves of course.Again second leg away but 1948 have the quality to advance and i hope they will.

Overall finally a good draw for us (outside of Ludo`s draws) when one takes into account the pre-groups in mind it could have been very very worse.

1-8 (Legia - Caernafon/Crusaders)
2-7 (Riga - Śląsk)
4-10 (Vaduz - Llapi/Wisła)
That's it. Thank you.

Only Wisła were unlucky, now they really have to beat Llapi in order to play at least in Q3.

AEK and Panathinaikos were both drawn home at first leg so it's possible that AEK's game will move to Wednesday or get reversed. But Zrinjski play at home first so a reverse is unlikely if Velez advance.

Go Ahead Eagles for Brann. A dutch team is never ideal but having finished 9th on Eredivisie makes it better.

And KuPS - Tromso. Surely much better than Copenhagen - Brann and Gent - Tromso of the 6 vs 1 scenario in the draw!!

It's a bad draw for Go Ahead imo. I'd bet on Brann.

The best draw belongs to Astana! Zrinjski and Aktobe cannot complain, both have decent chances. Worst draw went to Velez, then Tobol and Kutaisi.

I also think Brann is the favorite. Bad draw for Go Ahead Eagles, but at least their fans can travel to the away game this time, unlike last time when their opponent had a stadium ban.

Some medias here report that HBS might host Cherno More in Bulgaria. Has there ever been such paradox?

Quite tough draw for the Israeli teams, maybe the toughest possible (over all competitions) :(
From what I heard, the Israeli teams will host in Hungary.
