Subject: CL draw preview

From now on you can all start hoping on your favourite draw ;)

Myself, as a Club Brugge fan I would be very pleased to see the
following:
(Taken in account that you need 1 team from every group and teams
from the same country will be kept appart)
Note: Except for holders Liverpool, who are without country
protection after UEFA granted them special dispensation to defend the
trophy, meaning they could be drawn in the same section as English
champions Chelsea FC.

Favourite group:
- Liverpool (old revenge for two lost finals...)
- PSV Eindhoven (bought our captain)
- Club Brugge
- FC Thun (getting some points and a continuation after this group in
CL or UEFA)

The personal worst scenario would be:
- FC Barcelona (played them twice already these last years)
- Lyon (tired of French teams)
- Club Brugge
- Real Betis (most difficult and technical team)

A real group of death could be:
- AC Milan
- Chelsea FC
- Schalke 04
- Real Betis

Subject: Club Bruges clinch Champions League spot on penalties

Belgium's Club Bruges booked their place in the Champions League
group stage with a 4-3 victory on penalties over Norway's Valerenga
in their third qualifying round second leg tie on Wednesday.

Trailing 1-0 after the first leg, Bruges levelled the tie with a
Bosko Balaban goal in the 79th minute and then won the penalty shoot-
out after two superb saves by Bruges goalkeeper Tomislav Butina and a
decisive spot kick by Balaban.

The home side, desperate for an early goal, went close twice in the
first quarter of an hour.

After just two minutes, Bruges captain Gert Verheyen's shot was
turned around the post by an outstretched Valerenga goalkeeper Gautur
Arason and, 10 minutes later, a 25-yard strike by Michael Klukowski
was saved by Arason.

Ivan Leko, Gaetan Englebert and Balaban also had chances for Bruges
before the break.

The home side continued to dominate possession in the second half but
failed to breach the Valerenga defence until the 79th minute when
substitute Gregory Duffer's through ball set up Balaban to score.

Five minutes later, Valerenga had captain Kjetil Waehler sent off for
lashing out at Verheyen and the Norwegians were forced to hold out
with 10 men.

Ten minutes into extra time, the visitors almost snatched the lead
when Adrian Gashi struck the crossbar from just outside the penalty
area.

With the match still level after extra time, Butina gave Bruges the
early advantage by saving the second penalty from Bernt Hulsker
before his counterpart Arason followed suit against Duffer.

Butina, however, managed to get a hand to a Freddy Dos Santos strike
to pull off another good save before Balaban sealed the win.

******************************

What an unbelievable night!!
We dominated the game throughout the whole 120 minutes as Valerenga
only played with a 5-4-1. Iversen alone in front didn't touched a
ball the whole night long. Flo remained injured in Oslo. Their only
big chance came from prison boy Gashi who once again hit the bar
(like in the first leg).

For the rest it was all Bruges, but Arason managed to keep all out of
his goal. All but a Bosko Balaban goal in the 79th minute.

Too bad I don't have the game statistics here as we had like 15 shots
on goal and 20 corners!
We must really focus on scoring now :p

Anyway, in the end all what matters is to be in the CL.
So this will be our third participation in 4 years. And when you know
that even if you don't get any points you still get like 5-6 million
euro... that's 40% of Bruges yearly budget!! So you can imagine how
important it is if we want to continue closing the gap with Europe's
best.

We must be blessed as it's also our 3rd CL qualification via
penalties... :)
