Marienlyst Stadion, Drammen. This is where the return leg will be played 4/8
The draw is official.
Atlético will be playing Strømsgodset IF from Drammen, Norway in the 3rd Qualifying Round of UEFA Europa League. Our boys will start at Vicente Calderón against the Norwegians, the first game is scheduled to be played 28/7 while the return leg is set to be decided a week later, 4/8 on their home soil; Marienlyst Stadion.
Our rival reached the 2011-2012 edition of UEFA Europa League after winning the Norwegian Cup against Follo last season.
Strømsgodset are currently sitting fourth in Tippeligaen with 23 points, only Brann, Tromsø (26 each) and Molde (29) have managed to gain more points after 15 games. This is a team that's very strong at home and they've showed it this season by being 6-1-1 in eight home games while they're suffering big time away; 1-1-4. The negative thing with playing this team so early into the season is because they're fully fit as Norway play from March to November.
