Hajduk tried to get Sillamae to reverse the fixtures, even going as far to paying all their expenditures for their trip to Croatia but they still refused :D So the return leg will be played at a smaller stadium near Split thanks to some silly dance music festival :yawn:

The winner of Levadia/Crusaders got probably the best possible draw for the second round, but Skenderbeu are still slight favorites

If Flora goes through from EL 1st round, they'll meet the winners of Jelgava vs Litex Lovech.

If Kalju goes through, they'll meet the winners of Vaduz vs La Fiorita...a great opportunity to make it to the third round.

Vaduz will progress against their opponents, and in the unlikely event that Kalju pass Aktobe, Vaduz would be too good for Kalju. Decent team in the Swiss top flight.
They would be more chances against Vaduz, than against Aktobe. Anyway 0:0 in Kazakhstan, so everything is possible.

Flora leads also!

Kalju achieved one of the greatest victories ever from European competitions by Estonian clubs. Good chances to qualify next round

After first legs, my opinon is this:
1) When not a single teams qualify next round, it is a bit like disaster
2) When only one (example Levadia), it is a small dissapointment
3) When two, i would be satisfied
4) When three, it would be truly fantastic. Greatest European season for Estonia clubs all time
5) When four, it would be miracle

Levadia has obligation to win. Any thing lower, will be failure
Flora is light favourites in their tie, but it will come very tough game in Macedonia.
Kalju is still outsider in their tie. Need to just lock their goal and hope for counter-attacks
About Sillamäe... probably greatest performance by Estonian teams this weekend. Still chances to advantage is very small. Hopefully Ratnikov starts in lineup and Sidorenkov returns

Sillamäe result is amazing. Nice result for Kalju too.

I went to see Flora match, pretty boring game between two equal teams and not many good chances created. Anything can happen in the second leg but Flora certainly has a pretty good chance to progress as this Macedonian team looked nothing special.

Why play at A le Coq Arena when the stadium is virtually empty? Why not play at Levadia's regular stadium? this would've created a better atmosphere imo
