Zeljo/Zrinjski will be seeded for the EL draw while Olimpic will obviously be unseeded.

Olimpic will start from the first round and there are quite a few seeded teams there are beatable.

Teams like Maribor/Celtic/APOEL would be a total disaster for the team as has been evidenced in past seasons. Even Qarabag is an incredibly dangerous side

avoiding Maccabi Tel Aviv and Ludogorets who played in the CL group stages this past season is a must as well.

It's hard to forget some of the pathetic results Bosnian teams have had against Israeli teams in the past :palm:

Would UEFA really allow Partizan vs. Sarajevo?
If they draw each other yes

but remember, UEFA usually separate these teams into mini-groups so likely they will try to avoid any ex-YU clashes

Had Zeljeznicar been champions they would have been seeded I think, Sarajevo isn't

Who are Zeljo's possible opponents? Does anybody know?

Again, like with the CL, UEFA will separate these sides into mini-groups to make the draw quicker. The most dangerous unseeded sides are Ferencvaros, the Kazakh teams and maybe Odd from Norway who will be in mid-season

Olimpic is unseeded already in the first round

Zeljo will be seeded for the 1st and 2nd qualifying rounds again just like last summer whilst FKS with a good result or two in the CL qualifiers this year could ensure that they'll be seeded next year if they win the league again.

Thing is, if Zeljo won the league, they'd be seeded in the CL qualifiers this summer. Shame that didn't happen while the team was on a high during the Osim days but oh well.

Good performances from both clubs this summer could put them in good positions seedings/coefficients wise for the future and help them get favorable opponents, maybe even stand a better chance of making the CL/EL playoffs in the near future.

Zrinjski will also be seeded in the 1st qualifying round for anyone who cares.

Don't really expect much from Olimpic, especially if they get the nightmare draw that is West Ham. :D Usually even the seeded teams in the first round aren't that impressive but hard to know what to expect from them seeing as they've never played in Europe before and you never know how seriously they'll prepare for it. At least it's a breath of fresh air after all the years of seeing SB stink it up summer after summer.

I'd quite like to see West Ham vs Olimpic as I'd probably go to watch that game as it's near to where I live, however it would probably end up with something like a PSV-Zeta scenario from a few years back.

We should care. They are representing Bosnia, and any points gained benefit the BiH coefficient.

I am rooting for FK Zeljo and although I did not know they would have been seeded had they qualified for CL, I am sort of glad they enter Europa League, probably means more games (6 perhaps) instead of usual 2 losses in CL. :)

I believe the draws will be made this weekend.

UEFA :D



They have corrected it though by now :pp
Shame the screenshot does not show the source clearly. Looks faked and photoshopped as it stands.
