Nice open draw then, given all the above criteria ?

Would rather have had one of the lower seeded teams to start to get points on the board early. Can see the top 4 teams all taking points off each other and this group coming down to who doesn’t fuck up against bottom two teams. Need to be winning all our home games to have a chance of qualifying. 
 

Not great set of fixtures for fans if we get to travel. Having to get out to Copenhagen then back to Glasgow then out to Vienna over space of 6 days will be an interesting logistical challenge.
