The two UEFA tournaments are back Tuesday and Wednesday, with five Champions League matches and at least one Europa League contest each day, before an entire schedule of Europa games Thursday.
Today, there is a Champions League semifinalist from last season (Ajax) which is much weakened after some sales, and a very visible increase in the level of teams still involved. One look at the odds for the UCL 10 ties shows just how even these home and home contests should be. The tell is in the odds to advance to the final qualification round.
In the Europa match here, Sutjeska drops down from the Champions League qualifiers to take on Linfield in a tough test. Expect the reining Montenegro champions to win here at home.
