A lukewarm EU-football thread...

Postby Get Real! » Wed Aug 26, 2020 4:11 pm

This year the European football tournaments are all screwed up thanks to Covid-19! :?

For example,

1. There is only one match played; at the ground of the team with the highest coefficient points. (A dumb decision by UEFA)

2. And of course, there are no spectators at the stadiums so the atmosphere is worse than you'd expect at a match between two villages.

Anyway, here’s what’s coming that is relevant to CY…

--------------------------------------------------------------------

2020–21 UEFA Champions League - Second qualifying round

Today at 9pm:

Legia Warszawa (Poland) vs Omonia Nicosia

--------------------------------------------------------------------

2020–21 UEFA Europa League - First qualifying round

Tomorrow:

Apollon Limassol vs Saburtalo Tbilisi (Georgia)

Gjilani (Kosovo) vs APOEL Nicosia

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Am I excited? Nope...

Will I watch them? Not sure...

Do I have better things to do? Probably...

Today...

At 7pm

Apollon Limassol vs Saburtalo Tbilisi (Georgia) (1.28 - 5.25 - 9.00) - I quite like Apollon so I'll probably watch this.


At 8pm

Gjilani (Kosovo) vs APOEL Nicosia (8.50 - 5.00 - 1.33) - I may watch this in case APOEL screws up so I can then taunt my friend DT... :lol:

17 Sep: The useless but lucky APOEL, is paired with yet another nobody (Kaisar) from Kazakhstan but they probably won’t be able to score again… shit happens when you haven’t got any strikers!

17 Sep: Apollon, is poised to smash the Cretan nobodies by the name of OFI! The poor Cretans don’t know what’s coming…

15/16 Sep: Omonia Nicosia vs Red Star Belgrade – A pretty even match that can go either way.

The Russian league is at a higher level than that of Greece so the loss was expected on paper.
