    Drita, from Kosovo, won the preliminary round. It marked the first time a team from Kosovo had won a UEFA sanctioned match.

    The other Moussa Dembele has scored 2 early goals for Celtic to most certainly put them through as they are now 5-0 up on aggregate.

    Rosenborg up 2-1 on aggregate in the 80th minute Mix

    Welp, Valur scores in the 85th to tie it 2-2 aggregate. Rosenborg would be out on away goals

    Next round to Celtic. They are going to be shorthanded in the first leg and the result should be favorable. Will choke away 2nd leg.

    How do you all approach these early rounds? Pick a crap team to cheer for? Have any rooting interests, hope for upsets (if you can tell who the underdog is)?

    Depends if it would affect pots. If it’s going to knock a better club City might play into a lower pot, I’m more likely to root against that happening.

    This was a bigger issue a few years ago when we were lower on coefficient

    I allows root for the minnows to make it. Means so much to their clubs financially.

    Also, if there are teams with players that I like in FIFA or FM, i'll go for them so I can watch those players on tv.

    I'm conflicted with the big leagues not having to qualify in the playoffs starting this year. On one hand I liked rooting against the English #4 in the matchup, though they seemingly never lost, but on the other hand I disliked when a team like Hoffenheim/Villarreal/Gladbach would lose and not be in the group stage.

    Guys don’t pay. For big games there are so many streams available for free. I can create and pin a thread about how to do it if you need help.
