    if Arsenal get knocked out I will just hahahaha.. Wenger should go if they lose then, Also Malmo might get through but hammad out of experience I don't think it changes the efficents regarding qualification slots much unless it is sustained at least over 3 or so years

    I don't really know much about the current state of the teams in the 'Champions Route', however in the League route I think Villareal, Arsenal and Bayern should definitely win, OL should have the odds against Rubin Kazan and Twente - Benfica will probably be the most interesting match with a slight advantage to Benfica. Though if Twente let's Bryan Ruiz leave before these qualifying matches matches this should be in the pocket for Benfica..

    EDIT: After seeing what Benfica did to Arsenal this evening I want to restate that Twente - Benfica will be a close match. If Twente plays like they did last season in the CL group phase in some matches they might stand a chance, but how it is right now I would call this a win for Benfica..

    denmark have an extra team in qualifications this year in CL for an example. things like that change it seems. it helps more for 1 team to keep on coming back to CL but thats the difficult part as malmö nowhere near european places in the league. Elfsborg have been the most consistent since 06 to be reaching europe nearly every year. but helsinborg got a chance in europa league to make it to group stages as well. it would be great if both made it. would probably help us maybe start in a later qualification round next year.

    I knew this was going to happen. Arsenal get the most difficult qualifier but scrape through thanks to a Udinese side that couldnt handle the pressure and now we have a group of death. I thought first seeds would get abit of a break but maybe not
