We will play to Olimpija Ljubljana in 2nd qualifying round of Champions League

AS Trencin will meet with Slovenian champions Olimpija Ljubljana in 2nd qualifying round of Champions League 2016/2017. This was determined during Monday draw in house of UEFA in Nyon. Games will be played on July 12/13 and July 19/20. Martin Sevela´s side will start on the pitch of opponent.

There were 34 teams involved in the draw of 2nd qualifying round. AS Trencin belonged among seeded teams. Beside Ljubljana we could have met with F91 Dudelange (Luxembourg), Hapoel Beer-Sheva (Isreal), Vardar Skopje (Macedonia), or FK Liepaja (Lithaunia).

„I am satisfied. The opponent is acceptable in terms of game attractivity and locality. We want and can go further. During our camp in Turkey we played to NK Maribor so we have some idea what we can expect. We will be surely confronted with top quality, but if we want to progress, we have to accept the opponent,“ said coach Martin Sevela.

„Playing first game away can be an advantage. First, we will test our opponent on his pitch and will try to make as good position for the second leg as possible. We will play our home game in Zilina for 90 percent. This week we are playing friendly game in Zilina against home team so we can check the conditions there,“ added Sevela.

One year ago, we were eliminated by Steaua Bucharest in this stage. Sevela expects similar confrontation. „It will be very similar probably. In February we played also to Steaua beside Maribor. They play very similar football. There are not big differences. They tried to play football with good combinations and possession. It was not about long balls,“ concluded Sevela.
