Tottenham Going North After Europa Cup Qualifying Round Draw

By on August 5, 2011

This morning was the draw for the qualifying round of the Europa Cup.  A two legged affair, that if we win, we go forward into the the group stages of the competition.

This time last year we were all excited about who we would be drawn against in the Champion League qualifying round but this competition is a real chance for glory.

We qualified for the play-offs automatically and have been drawn against Heart of Midlothian.   We will travel to Edinburgh for the first leg on August 18th, with the return leg at White Hart Lane a week later.  Drawing Hearts has helped the travelling situation immensely as we have avoided seemingly trickier ties against Spartak Moscow and Trabzonspor.

The game after the first leg is Manchester Utd at Old Trafford on Monday 22nd, 8pm kick-off, with Manchester City at home on the 28th after the second leg, 1.30pm kick off.

It will be the first ever competitive meeting between the two sides and whilst we shouldn’t take them lightly (they finished 3rd last year in the Scottish Premier League), we should progress without too many problems. Famous last words!
