Story in short -

10 teams play in the Non Champions' Play-off round before the group stage. 5 against 5, winners qualify, losers to go Europa League.

Seeded teams (those with the best co-efficients) cannot face each other.

Seeded teams so far are Milan (Co-eff - 93), Arsenal (113) and Schalke (84). Unseeded teams so far are Pacos de Ferreira (12) and Real Sociedad (17).

5 more teams will reach this round from winning their 3rd knockout round matches. The teams involved in the 3rd KO round are (With co-efficients next to their name) -

Lyon CC: 95.800
Zenit Saint Petersburg CC: 70.766
PSV Eindhoven CC: 64.945
Metalist Kharkiv CC: 62.451
Fenerbahçe CC: 46.400
VS
PAOK CC: 28.800
Red Bull Salzburg CC: 28.075
Nordsjælland CC: 12.640
Grasshopper CC: 7.285
Zulte Waregem CC: 6.880

So once 5 winners come from these matches, the 2 with the highest co-efficients (Lyon and Zenit if they win) will be seeded with Milan, Arsenal and Schalke. The other 3 will be unseeded along with Pacos and Sociedad.

Milan can face one of these other 3 winners from the 3rd KO round (PSV/Metalist/Fenerbahce/PAOK/Red Bull/Nords/Grasshopper/Zulte) or Pacos or Sociedad.

Take your pick.

I want Sociedad purely for co-efficient purposes. Spain starting the group stages with 3 would be good.

I don't get the point. Italy isn't close to Spain anyways, and Sociedad would probably make more points going straight to EL anyways.

We need the easiest team, we've had hopelessly slow starts to the season for quite a while now (And so have Allegri's teams in general), and Sociedad isn't a bad team.

No gimme Norsjælland (So I can get to watch them ); or someone equally easy.

So that they can go to EL have more chance of making it and get more coefficients? No thanks
Not to mention Sociedad is probably the strongest team we can face along with Fenerbavhe.. PSV is good as well but they'll likely lose key players this summer.

Default Champions League 2013-14 Qualifiers 3rd round

CL 2013-14 Qualifiers are coming up in August end and Milan are involved in it. I heard that the tie can be tricky but not sure how the seedings are done and who will be paired against whom?
Considering some of the other big clubs are also there like Arsenal, Schalke and Real Sociedad, will Milan be in a place to avoid these big teams or anybody can play aginst any team?

He made a thread and it was merged here.

Why aren't mods changing this dud's name to SuperMesbah already? Should I start collecting his Mesbah posts?

Nordsjaelland would be the easiest, especially when they're losing Okore at the back. Hopefully we don't get a Dutch team; they seem to cause problems for Italian...

I would want to cut down on the travel as well. I'm beginning to favour Red Bull.

Fenerbache, Besiktas and Steaua Bukarest banned from Europe.

Any idea who could replace Fenebache (and possibly play us)?
