So as we qualified by finishing 7th in the league, we'll start our European campaign in the third qualifying round. That means we've got to eliminate two clubs before we'll reach the group stage.

The draw for the third qualifying round will be made on July 17th!
The matches will take place on July 30th and August 6th. As the second qualifying round ends on July 23rd, we might just know one week in advance where we'll go.
The draw for the Play-Off round (last qualifying round) will be made on August 7th, with the matches being played August 20th and 27th.

For more explanation check wiki

For possible opponents etc check the coeffecient list. As you can see we'll very likely be seeded in both qualification rounds. :thumbsup:

We got FH Hafnarfjördur (ISL) or İnter Bakı PİK (AZE), the Azerbaijani won the first match in Iceland 1-2, so probably it's going to be them. :sigh:

EDIT: FH were leading 1-0 when they saw a player sent off after 50 mins, after that incident the game turned, so not that sure it's going to be Inter, but very likely though as they're in the lead and will play the return at home.

Impossible I fear. Need to wait until after the return as FH still have got a chance. Then there's just about 12 days left to arrange a visum and flights... :thmbdown:
Beside that's going to be very expensive, how on earth can you get a visum on time? :confused:

If FH manages to surprise I'll probably go no matter what.

Azerbaijan requires a visum? :googly: Did not knew that.

FH were leading 1-2 in Azerbaidjan when they saw a red card again. They took the game into extra time but allowed Inter to equalise. No more goals followed which means we'll definitely travel to Baku in two weeks.
First next week in San Mamés.

HT: Athletic 1-0 Inter Baku (Eraso)

Poor first half for the lions, getting mad with Iturraspe, Ibai and Balenziaga's performance. MoM so far De Marcos.

2-0 Eraso :D

Another goal coming from the right wing, good play between De Marcos and Susaeta. Looks like finally we have someone who can score appart from Aritz. :)

FT: Athletic 2-0 Inter Baku (Eraso x 2)



A very good save by their goalie stopped Eraso making his debut with a hat-trick.:cool:

Today we played with De Marcos, Eraso + 9 average players.

The left wing was terrible today, Balenziaga+Ibai...:wallbang: I guess this will improve when Williams comes back but I honestly think we have to sign Monreal.

Elustondo doing nothing special was far better than Iturraspe. :wallbang:
