Lets hope they are not that strong but if we are going down the route of looking at the past we should only look at the fact that the Slovenian league is historically stronger than Ireland and they are the champions
    There is the off chance of a Leicester City example. Champions but would have been the preferred draw over possibly the 3 other CL qualified. Maybe a bit grasping at straws.

    Home to Molde or KuPS in Q2. And both are on the green list so will be in Ireland presumably. Couldn't really have asked for much better.

    Aside from the fact that we are muck at the minute, I wouldn’t fear that draw in the second round. It could have been a lot worse and it is a great incentive to get past the first round and then have a winnable second round tie. We just have to learn how to play football again.

    Great draw. It's as good as you're going to get at that stage of the competition.

    With the amount of investment in the squad it's time to actually make an impact in Europe this year or else stop talking about it in the way the club have been in recent seasons.

    No European pedigree at all. If we're serious about group stage football, and that's why the owners are here and what the club keep talking about, then we should be winning this tie, no excuses.
    The actual draw isnt so bad through to the 3rd round, they are the kind of ties you would expect Dundalk to be confident in winning kicking on from previous years. But yer current form doesn't look too good or promising heading into Europe. Hopefully the neutral tie works in Dundalks favour. IT could be a strange few weeks of results.

    Quick look there, Bohs opponents have 13 full internationals in their squad, Derry and Rovers opponents have 4 full internationals each

    The away draw is a pain, but Riteriai are in brutal form.
    They've one win in the last 14 games, and are bottom of the six team league they're in. It's certainly winnable.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    Decent draw for Rovers, certainly being at home should help.
    Just hope the Finns don't come here and play for penos.

    "Bohemians face a trip to Hungary against Fehérvár, formerly known as Videoton.

    They were runners-up in their league last year and will represent a big test of Keith Long's side. Their new season begins on Saturday.

    Derry City will travel to Lithuania to meet Riteriai, who were knocked out of the competition at the first hurdle last year against a side from the Faroe Islands.

    They are currently sixth in A Lyga in a disappointing league season in which they've won won of their last 14 matches, after finishing third last year."


    Actually at least 2 should go through in Europa League, I revise my statement

    Ah I’d take no notice of what they say, he’s also missing games due to being gargled according to them

    Wish i could go as flights to Vilinus are cheap. Wanted to go to Minsk for the last European game but couldn't justify £500 for a one-off trip.

    Still, i remember Maribor on DCC saying it could have been our last euro game for a while... Deccy has turned it around

    Given the lack of money circulating in UEFA at the moment, if a team gets a bye do they also get the money? Or is it split or is the money not even paid out?

    A week is a long time in football, so it could bite back on Irish teams yet, be nice to knock out a few higher up the co-effs countries teams along the way
