Tough group.
Considering who we could have gotten, it's actually quite a good group. We actually got Gent, not Genk... quite a big difference in terms of quality between those two sides.

In Pot 1 we avoided literally all the big teams. In Pot 3 we got one of the better sides, and they will likely be group favorites, but at the same time if their focus turns to the Bundesliga they might rotate against us. Lastly we got a solid Czech team in Slovan Liberec, but nothing worse than what was there. I'm really grateful we didn't get Lille or Nice. We always struggle with the French teams, and I'm just glad we avoided them. Is it an easy group? No, nobody is saying that, but it's not as difficult as it could have been. My favorite group is Celtic, AC Milan, Sparta Prague and Lille. 7,8 years ago that would have been a Champions League group.

These were the pots -

Pot 1 - Arsenal, Tottenham, Roma, Napoli, Benfica, Bayer Leverkusen, Villareal, CSKA Moscow, PSV Eindhoven, Celtic, Braga, Gent.

Pot 2 - Dinamo Zagreb, Sparta Prague, Slavia Prague, Ludogorets Razgrad, SC Young Boys, Crvena Zvezda, Rapid Vienna, Leicester City, PAOK, Qarabag, Standard Liege, Real Sociedad.

Pot 3 - AC Milan, Granada, Hoffenheim, Feyenoord, AEK Athens, Rangers, AZ Alkmaar, LASK, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Beer-Sheva, Cluj, Molde.

Pot 4 - Lille, Nice, Lech Poznan, Sivasspor, Zorya, Rijeka, Slovan Liberec, Dundalk, Royal Antwerp, Wolfsberger, Omonia Nicosia, CSKA Sofia.

Derby coming up on Sunday vs. FK Partizan at the JNA Stadion. We go into the match 8 points clear of them who are in second after 10 of 38 games played.

Derbi was uneventful.. Partizan scored a messy goal, Zvezda scored a deserved penalty.


Playing Hoffenheim right now in Europa League. Gacinovic could have had a penalty kick against Zvezda,... Our shirts look to be in homage of the Admiral shirts from 78 when Zvezda knocked out arsenal

Halftime 0-0. I think Zvezda could have had a penalty at the end of the half due to a push In the back during the only dangerous attack they had but I'd need to see a replay.

I can seeErakovic will soon be a starter for the National team

I think the studs were down, the next replay made it look like there was zero contact. Deki ends up getting kicked out of the game after that goal.

Triple substitution coming up for Zvezda in the 72nd minute

Greetings, trust you all have been well!
Good win for Zvezda, can't say I had much faith in Deki taking over from previous coach
