    Champions League 2019-20

    Creating this thread in hope of giving my share of luck and positive vibes in order for us to win the CL "at last". I am saying at "last" as 4 years without winning the CL is a lot with the GOAT (Messi in case anyone was in doubt) around. I might be overly optimistic or naive but I cannot imagine Malmierda scoring a hat-trick when it comes to extremely embarrassing CL exists after being 3 goals ahead before the return leg. Or at least I hope never to witness such a thing again.

    Quite some surprising results so far in the third qualifying round. 2-time European Cup/Cl winners Porto going out against Krasnodar, 1-time European Cup winners Celtic going out against CFR Cluj, Dynamo Kyiv going out against Club Brugge, Basel (that kicked out 1-time European Cup winners PSV Eindhoven in the previous qualifying round) going out against LASK and Ajax barely qualifying against PAOK.

    The group stage draw will take place Thursday 29 August 2019, 18.00 local time.

    Half of them. See the first link mate.

    EDIT: Plus one of either Slavia Prague and Young Boys. There are 12 teams in total in the play-off round and 6 of them will qualify for the group stages.
