Killie in Europe 2024/25


Recommended Posts

Still not sure what tournament we'll be starting in, but we are definitely on our way to Europe. Obviously some major demons to exorcise from last time, but with the manager's experience at this level I reckon we have a decent chance of at least winning a tie or two if we get half decent draws.

Looking at the Europa League route, it's possible we could end up playing the likes of Ajax or Porto straight away, which would be a great tie to get but also one we'd have basically no chance in.

Europa League Second qualifying round secured.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2024–25_UEFA_Europa_League#Second_qualifying_round

Currently we could get Ajax, Molde, Braga, Rapid Vienna, Rijeka, Tobol, Silkeborg, Wisla Krakow, Elfsborg, Ruzomberok and then teams from following countries not yet decided.

Greece, Israel, Cyprus, Hungary, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Kosovo, Romania, Slovenia, Belgium, Serbia and Turkey.

The fact we have 2 goes at this has me leaning to wanting an Ajax or Braga. Probably on TV, big crowds and great cities and stadiums to visit. Easy to get to aswell.

Then we'd most likely drop down to conference and hopefully get a lower level team to try and get to group stages.

At least we can't draw any Welsh giants at this stage.

Obviously haven't seen Ajax this season 😂

Just had a quick look, Killie will be seeded in QR2 if Pafos beat Omonia in the Cypriot Cup final and Maccabi Petah Tikva win the Israeli State Cup Final.

That would mean a much easier list of opponents including:

Spoiler

Silkeborg (DEN), Panathinaikos or Aris Thessaloniki (GRE) Radnički 1923 (SRB) Wisła Kraków (POL) Paks (***) Elfsborg (SWE) Oțelul Galați (ROU)

Beaten by some mob from Kosovo (not a real country btw) in the Europa league qualifying and then pumped by Lincoln red imps in the conference league imo.

It's more of a real country than Scotland, obviously.

It's very unlikely we'd be able to play a team from Kosovo in our Europa League draw.
