United drawn against Latvian side Ventspils

Recommended Posts

Newcastle United expect to avoid their near neighbours Gretna when the draw for the second qualifying round for the UEFA Cup is made in Nyon on Friday, (writes Alan Oliver).

 

United are in the Northern Geographical group and so are Gretna, but the word coming from UEFA is that both teams are seeded and this would mean that they could not be drawn together on Friday.

 

Actually, there hasn't been that much news coming out of UEFA about the draw, but I gather United expect to play an unseeded team in the 64-team draw which includes 11 sides who, like Newcastle, have come through via the InterToto Cup.

 

This means they will go in against an unseeded team from Estonia, Belgium, Faroe Islands, Denmark, Southern Ireland, Finland, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, Norway or Wales.

 

My view is that while United could be involved in fighting for that fourth Champions League slot they will not finish in the top three in the Premiership this season, and so a good run in a cup competition is needed. And why should it not be the UEFA Cup?

 

Two years ago they got to the quarter-finals and last season Middlesbrough, who were not exactly a good side, reached the final, so there is obviously plenty to play for, although, as usual, there are some quality teams in the competition.

 

But Villarreal, who are at St James' Park a week on Saturday, are one top side who failed to qualify following their shock InterToto Cup defeat by Slovenian outfit NK Maribor at the weekend.

 

Before the Spaniards arrive on Tyneside, United expect a fair-sized crowd to see Damien Duff make his debut in Saturday's friendly with PSV Eindhoven which has a 4pm kick-off.

 

As a result, while there will be cash turnstiles on the day, United are asking their fans to get their tickets in advance if possible by contacting the box office.

Amazing that we have, by far and away, the best coefficient of all the teams in there!
