European Quiz
« on: May 20, 2019, 12:00:07 AM »
I know we ain't secured European football yet if at all for next season but let us have a bit of fun but no cheating!!

Who would beat us First Round in continental competition then go on and win said trophy??

Which beaten team in initial question from same country as above winning side had also knocked us out First Round and were again losing finalists a few years earlier??

Nah, mind blank on this one.
Will look forward to seeing the answer.

On a separate point, seeing as you bring up Europe and assuming Celtic beat Hearts, then we would be seeded for QR1 and QR2.

SevCo and Killie would be seeded in QR1, Killie unseeded in QR2 and SevCo looking to just miss out on seeding in QR2.

There are 8 seeding spots left and we know the following 4 countries will return a higher co-efficient: -

EL23 (*) Cro 5.475
EL23 (*) Den 5.405 - 7.500
EL23 (*) Den 5.405
EL3 Sui 5.380 - 18.000

That leaves 4 spots.

We would definitely take one of the spots if Celtic beat Hearts
EL13 * Sco 4.425 - 5.500

If the better teams on paper from Isreal, Slovakia and Romania qualify, it would push SevCo out of the seeding.

CW Rom 4.000 - 12.500
CW * Slo 3.750 - 18.500
EL2 * Isr 3.725 - 12.000
EL2 * Rom 3.500 - 23.000

There's also a Bulgarian qualifier from QR1 that is seeded to be above SevCo
EL2 Bul 3.500 - 27.000

In summary, if all the results are as expected, SevCo get pushed down to the 2nd highest co-efficient unseeded side in QR2.
They need two results unexpected out of the 6 available to get seeded in QR2

The 6 teams that can push SevCo out of QR2 seeding: -

Ludogorets Razgrad - Bulgaria - 27.00
FCSB   Romania - 23.00
NK Maribor   Slovakia - 18.50
Astra Giurgiu   - Romania - 12.50
Hapoel Beer-Sheva   Israel - 12.00
Aberdeen - Scotland 5.50 (Celtic beat Hearts)

We play Conah’s Quay in a friendly at the end of June.
I imagine that will be cancelled should we draw them on 19th June.

At least all the Kazak teams are also seeded so no chance of treking to the far east (until the next round at least)
I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

The thing which always gets me about Europe nowadays is that there seems to be a new country entered into the qualifying each season like Kosovo and Gibraltar a year or two ago.  Still can't believe we played Kairat Almaty who were in CENTRAL ASIA!!

Israeli clubs have played in European competition for decades (well they couldn't play in Asian competitions for obvious reasons)

Also the vast majority of the former USSR (and now modern day Russia) is in Asia...it has a Pacific Coast and borders China and North Korea! Kazakhstan I think has been granted access to European competition through "grandfather rights" as being part of the former USSR. Doesn't make it right though...

Suppose we should be thankful FC Luch Vladivostok don't play in the Russian Premier League at the moment

Eintracht Frankfort beat us 2-1 on aggregate First Round of UEFA Cup Season 1979-80 then overcame Borussia Monchengladbach 3-3 in Final on away goals rule.  Seven years earlier Monchengladbach had beat us 9-5 on aggregate First Round of UEFA Cup but lost two legged Final 3-2 to Liverpool.
