UEFA Group Stage Draw

All set for group stage draw
Tuesday, 4 October 2005

The draw for the UEFA Cup group stage will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Tuesday. Forty teams await their fate as procedures get under way at 12.00CET.

Famous names
The first round was completed last Thursday night, when a number of famous names experienced contrasting fortunes. Holders PFC CSKA Moskva won through in convincing fashion, completing a 6-2 aggregate triumph against FC Midtjylland, but the side they defeated in Lisbon in May, Sporting Clube de Portugal, failed to progress. Swedish team Halmstads BK overturned a 2-1 first-leg deficit to win 3-2 at the Estßdio JosÚ Alvalade and advance on away goals following a gripping 4-4 draw.

Winners eliminated
Two recent winners also saw their 2005/06 European campaigns reach an early conclusion, AFC Rapid Bucuresti ousting 2002 champions Feyenoord 2-1 overall, while Norway's Troms° IL eliminated Galatasaray SK, who lifted the trophy in 2000. The likes of Bayer 04 Leverkusen - winners in 1988, Everton FC, FK Partizan and FK Austria Wien, semi-finalists last term, also bowed out, although the other side to lose in the last four in 2004/05, AZ Alkmaar, scored twice in the final eleven minutes to knock out FC Krylya Sovetov Samara on away goals following a thrilling 6-6 draw. There were more comfortable victories for AS Roma, US CittÓ di Palermo, AS Monaco FC and RC Strasbourg, among others.

Top seeds CSKA
France are represented by five teams, while Italy, Russia, Germany, Romania and Bulgaria have three clubs still in contention. The qualifiers have been divided into five pools of eight sides based on their UEFA coefficient. CSKA Moskva are top seeds, and Troms° bottom. A team from each seeding pool will be assigned to a group, although clubs from the same national association cannot be pitted together.

Computer draw
When the draw concludes - with eight sections of five teams - a computer draw will take place to determine the fixture schedule with factors such as stadium clashes and climatic conditions, as it is not possible to play in some northern countries in mid-December, taken into account.

Eindhoven finale
Each club will play two matches at home and two away on the following dates: 20 October, 3 November, 24 November, 30 November/1 December, 14/15 December. The winners, runners-up and third-placed sides from each group progress to the last 32 where they are joined by the eight third-placed teams from the UEFA Champions League group stage. At this point, the traditional two-game format is used with the exception of the final. The competition climaxes at the Philips stadium in Eindhoven on 10 May 2006.

Not too much luck for the Russians teams,but with tree qualifying teams per group i think it is possible for all to qualify.

what do you mean a poor team? that they dont have money? well, it'll only make them more motivated .

I hoped Slavia Prague would be in the same group as Loko . I'd go to Prague then :depress:

Yeah, please call them poor. They are really poor compared to Lokomotiv's money and talent. But just ask RSF or Andrija just how confident they felt about Partizan beating the hell out of them.

BTW another Israeli team eliminated Lokomotiv from Europe not so long ago.

Tough group, but not impossible. Looking at the sections, it seems a stronger competition than last year. I'd like to see who we'll play home and away, but I expect Loko to qualify.

poor doesn't necessarily mean bad . Has anybody here said that we'll easily beat them? If yes, I must have missed it . One thing's for sure - you can never be confident with Loko. And the weaker the opponent seems to be, the scarier it is .

Well then I wonder what kleber means when he says your group is easier because of a poor team?

You guys start against Petah Tikva in Israel. This will be their key match IMO. A draw wouldn't be a bad result though.

and where's the logic? What's the point in playing the first match in Israel when we could use the time when it's relatively good weather here to play in Moscow?
