    Champions League 2016/17

    UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2016/17 SEASON
    (Full Season Calendar)






    The first games of the 3rd Qualifying Round just started.

    Champions League - Qualification July 26

    BATE Borisov - Dundalk
    Ludogorets Razgrad - FK Crvena Zvezda
    Sparta Prague - Steaua Bucuresti
    Partizani - Salzburg
    Viktoria Plzen - Qarabag FK
    FC Rostov - Anderlecht
    Ajax - PAOK Thessaloniki FC
    Dinamo Zagreb - Dinamo Tbilisi
    Shakhtar Donetsk - Young Boys

    Road to Cardiff starts today for teams like Ajax, Shakhtar, Red Star Belgrade or Viktoria Plzen.

    Tomorrow Monaco, Olympiacos or Celtic will also join the party!

    Ajax face PAOK for a spot in the Play-Off, maybe the toughest draw of the day.

    Millennium Stadium awaits! Can Crvena Zvezda make it to the 2nd ECC in History or will it be Ajax nr. 5?

    Ajax hosting PAOK. The Greek took the lead in the first half, but Ajax have just equalized through 18 year old Danish debutant Kasper Dolberg. Nice goal to boot - a low curler from well outside the area.

    the goal: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4l...salonica_sport

    Hard times for the Dutch team.

    I think the last time they were somehow strong was in 2003 when they were a minute away from sending Milan home and would've had a good chance against Inter in the semis to play at Old Trafford.

    I simply hope in some change in Champions L. hierarchies

    It hadn't ever been seen 3 teams reaching semifinals for 6 years consecutivly (more or less).
    I hope some of them will be sent away early in the 1/8ers (Real M. first candidate) and a second in the 1/4ers (Bayern M.)

    Barça will be strong as usual, but I think not unbeatble like in 2015.

    The dream is Juve beating Barça in the Final .....you can lose a Final after 4 consecutive wins

    Hope Dinamo gets into CL again.. Who knows, maybe they'll get Barca and that means I'm going to the match since Zagreb is only 120km from my town..

    One thing that is going to be interesting this year, the duel between Italy and England for 4 UCL spots is on. English teams might send only 3 teams in 2018/19 if Italy gains 2.5 more points than England from this years European season, note that Italy has 6 teams, so any achievement is divided by 6 compared to 7 for England.
    Juventus going far and English teams KOed soon in the UCL, Roma will not be seeded in the Play-Off but it can play against Shakhtar or Ajax ( if the Dutch make it past PAOK ) and if not, it can be Anderlecht that take their spot as seeded.
    City will be seeded, they can play anyone from Sparta/Steaua, Fener to Gladbach or Roma.

    August 25.

    A group of death for Barca: Barcelona, Borussia, Tottenham, PSV Eindhoven - Note: If the Dutch would've kept their 8th position, PSV would've been seeded pot 1.
    Another version would be: Barcelona, City/Arsenal, Lyon, Sporting/PSV

    A easy group: Barcelona, Bayer 04, Basel, Victoria Pilsner

    Astra Giurgiu and Rosenborg already scored against Copenhagen and APOEL.
    Celtic drew 1-1 in Kazahstan against Astana.

    APOEL - Rosenborg - 0-0 @ 90th minute, 3-0 after Injury Time ( 1st Leg was 2-1 for Rosenborg so 1-0 was enough, but still funny ).



    And Norway is without a team in the Champions League since 2007.

    2008: Brann lost to Marseille in Q3
    2009: Stabek lost to Coppenhagen Q3
    2010: Rosenborg lost to Copenhagen in Q4
    2011: Rosenborg lost to Victoria Pilsner in Q3
    2012: Molde lost to Basel in Q3
    2013: Molde lost to Legia Warsaw in Q3
    2014: Stromgodset lost to FCSB in Q2
    2015: Molde lost to Zagreb in Q3
    2016: Rosenborg lost to APOEL in Q3

    RIP

    Out in Q3: Qarabag, Rosenborg, Tbilisi, Red Star, BATE, Astra, Sparta Prague, Olympiakos Pireu(lol!), PAOK, Partizani Tirana, Anderlecht.

    Ajax make it to Q4 where they will be seeded and since Anderlecht and Shakhtar are on the verge of elimination, they might not have to face Gladbach or Roma.

    Actually no, it's still Roma.

    Final UCL Non-Champions Route:

    Seeded: Manchester City, Porto, Villarreal, Ajax, Gladbach
    Unseeded: Roma, Fcsb, Monaco, Young Boys Berne, Rostov

    Pretty clear who is the easiest opponent, everybody who is seeded wants Fcsb and who is not would pick Ajax and run like hell from Pep.

    Other route situation:

    Seeded: Pilsner, Red Bull Salzburg, Celtic Glasgow, APOEL and Legia
    Unseeded: Croatia Zagreb, Ludogorets Razgrad, Copenhagen, Hapoel Be'er Sheva, Dundalk

    5 will be in the Group Stages, all teams will be seeded in Pot 4 from this route.
