Champions league qualifying Round 1 : The draw :

HB Tórshavn (FAR) v FBK Kaunas (LIT)
FC Levadia Tallinn (EST) v FC Dinamo Tbilisi (GEO)
FK Rabotnicki (MKD) v Skonto FC (LAT)

Pretty interesting draw, is not it ?

Kaunas could get Liverpool (probably) in the next round.
Levadia could faced Brondby
And Skonto would get a though round against Lokomotiv Moscow, if they go trough the first round.

Can anyone tell me more about Skonto? i know they are one of the best if not the best team in Latvian football history but how good are they this year and what do you think about facing FK Rabotnicki of Macedonia.

Here is some info on Rabotnicki:

FK Rabotnicki

Founded 1937
Stadium: Gradski or City Stadium in Skopje
http://www.romanticari.com.mk/Galerija_Stadion.htm

They have only played in Europe once before and lost twice in the UEFA Cup, but that was not a very good team compared to this one they have right now, all this team is missing now is experience other then that they have some great young talent including there goalie Madzovski who is starting for the Macedonia NT. They have a couple fans who are in there supporters group Romanticari www.romanticari.tk and im sure they will come and tell you more about there team and what to expect. :)

Well, Skonto holds world record of consecutive championship titles (14), they are winning them probably from the same year Latvian league (and Skonto itself) was found in 1991. Though few times they were lucky to snatch it from Ventspils or Metalurgs.

Skonto is the only Baltic team that made it to the 3rd qualifying round (in 99/00), losing to Chelsea 0-3 and 0-0. They also went out in second round (of 2 held) in 97/98 to Barcelona, but got a very decent result 2-3 at Nou Camp and lost 0-1 at home. Though since Skonto/Latvia NT manager left for Spartak Moscow, they don't look in position to keep their record going on.
However, they are still favourites of this CL tie.

Levadia got strongest opponent in first round, but at least they have beatable one in second. As for Kaunas and Skonto there are no chances.

Ventspils, Metalurgs and Atlantas should go through, rest will be close ones.

I think Skonto is a bit weaker than the other years. At least, obviously, they do not have theirs hands on the Latvian championship anymore. Last year was quite lucky. But this year Metalurgs seems to be the strongest. However they are still feeding the National team.

Last Line-up against Ventspils :
16.Andrejs Piedels; 2.Arturs Zakreševskis, 3.Aleksandrs Isakovs, 4.Mihails Zemļinskis, 5.Ārons Nguimbats, 20.Zāli Eliava (11.Mihails Miholaps, 62.min.), 23.Andrejs Perepļotkins (15.Igors Semjonovs, 58.min.), 8.Aleksejs Višņakovs, 9.Kristaps Blanks (18.Klods Parfē Ngons Džams, 75.min.), 10.Zurabs Mentešašvili, 19.Gatis Kalniņš

Damn, I hoped to see Liverpool play here.

Dinamo Tblisi is really bad draw: anonymous ex-Soviet team who doesn't create much interest and probably will beat Levadia.

so Ussoltsev screwed it up again, like last year with TVMK against Akranes, where he was fired after that. Still a good result for Trans.
