Season Review Part 1 - The European Dream


By Burnley FC
May 20 2019

The opening month of a marathon season was dominated by the Clarets’ European campaign as Burnley returned to the Continental stage for the first time in over half a century. 

 Finishing seventh in the Premier League in 2017/18 had earned Sean Dyche’s side a crack at the Europa League.

 Joining at the second qualifying-round stage meant a first ever competitive game in July for the Clarets.

 And while the draw did Dyche’s men no favours, they came within a whisker of making it through to the group stages during a memorable six-match run

 It all started in the north of Scotland with a trip to Aberdeen.

 Being paired with the Scottish Premier League side might not have been the draw many fans wanted as they looked forward to a European tour.

 But a ‘Battle of Britain’ against a side steeped in European history made it a cracking cup tie, which just went in Burnley’s favour over two fiercely contested legs.
