These dates are from the 10/11 Europa League, I can't find any dates for our Europa campaign, so these are around the right time, a day or so.
Again this is 10/11 campaign, but it gives you idea that most of the "who the fuck are they?" teams will be out by the time we enter.
But this looks ok,vaslui is the biggest threat,even thought we beat 2 romanian teams last year,but still they are dangerous,hannover aint good,thun did beat palermo ,but i dont think they will cause you much problems
