So if Dinamo get past Omonia, they get the winner of Legia/Flora. Legia would not be a team to look past, but they're beatable. Not a bad path to the PO's (where they would be seeded). Was expecting it to be harder, given all the format changes with UCL, UEL and UECL

Big day of action tomorrow; would say Rijeka, Hajduk and Osijek should all be favored to win and progress. But as many of us have seen through the years, feel like our top teams outside of Dinamo have a knack for stumbling in these earlier qualifiers. 😬

If Rijeka advance, they most likely get Hibernian.
If Osijek advance, they get the winner of CSKA Sofia/Liepaja
If Hajduk advance, they get the winner of Apollon Limassol/Zlina.

The first few rounds seem very easy. The final playoff round may be tricky since that is when some of the big clubs join. Outside of Rijeka doesn’t seem Osijek or Hajduk have much a chance at being seeded than

For all their progress domestically, Osijek have been poor in Europe last few seasons and drawing a Polish side this early is not ideal; for Hajduk they need to win by a couple of goals because going away to Kazakhstan is never easy. If they keep the squad together, anything less than the CL would be a disappointment for Dinamo considering they are seeded all the way, think they are better than the likes of Legia and down the line Young Boys/Zvezda/Brondby etc.

2 wins and 1 draw + no goals allowed by Croatian teams today! We have moved up one spot for now:

Too early to really to get a sense of where we land. With all the federations competing with us, their teams either got a result or tied, Greece is in trouble with Aris and AEK both losing their first legs. Would be big for us to have them already have 2 teams out.

We need all the teams roughly between 12-20 to start losing some teams in this qualifiying round and while I assume Dinamo will make either UCL or UEL groups, we ideally need all our UECL teams to get to the PO or close to it, with maybe 1-2 making groups (Thinking Hajduk and Rijeka?) I think that will keep us in the hunt for 15th.

naprijed koeficijent! 😁
