Last year was a year to Forget for the FCB, at least on a European level. In the Champions League qualification, it failed after a 0:3 at home to PAOK Salonika. The Bebbi beat later, while Vitesse in the Europa League qualifiers, against Apollon Limassol, there was then the final Out.

Not a European group stage – the gabs on the Rhine knee at this time more and more. Now hell full of Tuesdays-, Wednesdays flaps with an autumn or Thursday games. First Hurdle: Eindhoven. The draw for the second Champions League qualifying round in Nyon.

Against Eindhoven have played the Basel yet never. The Dutch are coached by Mark van Bommel. The greatest strength? A whole load of Offensive Power with Steven Bergwijn, Luuk de Jong and Hirving Lozano. (leo)
