It's Rapid - Again

Rapid v Celtic

By Arch

Villa will once again face Rapid Vienna in the play-off Draw for this season's Europa Cup. It's a more than winnable tie with the Austrians stuttering in recent seasons. Good news is that the first leg will be away.

It's chance to put right the 'wrong' of a year ago when we went out on the away goals rule after losing 1-0 in Vienna and then winning 2-1 at home.

Other British clubs in the draw see Liverpool take on Trabonspor, Celtic v Utrecht, Dundee Unite v AEK Atens and TNS of Wales against CSK Sofia.

Man City will take on FC Timisoara of Romania and Motherwell will face Odense.

Europe has to be a priority this season unless MON has something up his sleeve this weekend in terms of signings [:wor kid:]

I dont think we can expect anything higher than sixth in the league so lets see how far we can get in Europe.
