Rovers Await Intertoto Cup Opponents

Rovers Await Intertoto Cup Opponents

In order to move a step closer to the UEFA Cup proper next season Blackburn Rovers have to overcome opponents in the Intertoto Cup. However, we are no closer to knowing who that will be!!!

The First Leg of the Second Round Intertoto Cup tie between FK Vetra of Vilnius (or Vilnius Vetra depending on where you read it) and Legia Warsaw had to be abandoned at half time after some Warsaw fans invaded the pitch and attacked riot police.

At that time FK Vetra were winning 2-0, but as a result the referee abandoned the match and UEFA will make a decision, so Rovers have to await the outcome of this before our opponents in two weeks time are revealed (or at least partially revealed.)

Recently a Danish fan attacked the referee in a European Championship Qualifier between Denmark and Sweden when Sweden were given a late penalty. The match was level at 3-3 at the time with injury time approaching. Later Sweden were awarded a 3-0 win, so the same will probably happen here, unless FK Vetra are simply awarded the tie as a result?!?!

Personally I don't know ANYTHING about FK Vetra of Vilnius but I would rather we faced them (not that they will be easy of course!!!) as Legia Warsaw are a team with A LOT of European experience, so would be one to avoid.
As I say after what happened with the Denmark vs. Sweden game I think the same will happen here (with them at least given a 3-0 First Leg win?!?!)

They will probably be thrown out. They cant have one rule for one team and another for Legia. Its all Uefa Cup after all!

I'm agree with HDM, Leiga Warsaw would prove a much trickier tie, they're not bad like. Still expect us to get through comfortably regardless of what happens next.

Very much the trickier tie... but if we want to compete with the best the competition has to offer then we need to beating teams like Legia comfortably.
