I thought we were part of the seeded group?

Of those teams in the provisional seeded pot 14 of them need to go through one or two rounds of qualifying so there’s no guarantee they’ll even make it to the play off round. That said even if they all do there’s no one there Juventus, Frankfurt and Lille apart we should be worried about facing.

I want us to be in the same pot as Rapid Vienna. More concerned about them than meeting most of the 'seeded' teams.

Fuck Rapid Vienna! If we meet them, they are going to a Basque funeral. FTF!

I think Rapid Vienna would be more worried about playing us.

Midtjylland 1-0 up. Bollocks.
So does this now mean we get Juve in the play offs ?

Potentially BUT there are teams with a higher coefficient that play in earlier play off rounds so, if they get knocked out early, then we move up.

Thanks. I understand the system - just preparing for the inevitable.

I'll be interested to see if we are the favourites to win it when it kicks off. With Emery's pedigree you'd imagine we'd be in the top 3 or 4 with the bookies.

For the sake of any trolls reading this, despite years of disappointments some of us have more confidence in Aston Villa than others.

There are some tricky ties if we end up unseeded. But I’ll be honest after 10 years + outside of European football, however the coefficients work, it’s hard to argue. On the flip side I imagine the seeded teams would be horrified to face us.

I'm just looking forward to seeing the place rocking in August under the floodlights. I believe we can beat anybody in this competition.

With the Uk bookies we will be but I’d guess German/Spanish bookies probably won’t rate us as highly

As someone who doesn't gamble, I've often wondered about stuff like this.  Why wouldn't you just place your bet in the location where you get the best odds? Or play them off against each other if they offer such different odds?  If they're not all the same odds (or close to it), surely it's a market rife for exploitation?

Isn't it strange that seeded teams have to play earlier rounds than we do?
