2 to qualify from each group isn't it?

If so, don't see many, if any, potential banana skins for the sides "expected" to progress. Maybe Dundee's group could throw up a shock?

Would be epically funny if the caravan dwellers fail to get out of their section though  :thumbsup:

Think it’s 8 group winners plus best 4 second place and 4 euro qualifiers that make up 16 second round teams.

So a case of what could have been assuming we directly replaced Hearts in that draw.
Nice game against the wee Dundee team instead of a trip into the arse end of Eastern Europe  ;)
