While I get ready for the ultimate holiday in America. I also get ready for the greatest club competition in the world. On July 3rd the first round of qualifying will take place for the 2012/2013 UEFA Champions League. While those six teams involved in the first round have no real shot at winning the championship. It is great for these clubs to get a shot. The first match-up will feature Valletta FC from Malta against FC Lusitans of Andorra. Valletta is ranked 322 by UEFA while Lusitans is ranked 429. Valletta is lead by Jonathan Caruana and Michael Mifsud while Luistans is lead by Victor Moreira, Sebastia Bertran and Luis Miguel Dos Reis. The second match-up will feature F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg against SP Tre Penne from San Marino. Dudelange is ranked 317th by UEFA while Tre Penne is ranked 421. Aurelien Juachim and Stefano Bensi lead Dudelange while Matteo Valli is one to watch for Tre Penne. The Last match-up features Linfield FC from Northern Ireland against B36 Torshavn from the Faroe Islands. Linfield is ranked 315 by UEFA while Torshavn is ranked 434. Linfield is led by Mark McAllister, Michael Carville and Jamie Mulgrew. Torshavn is led by Simon Joensen and Lukasz Cieslewicz. Linfield, Dudelange and Valletta will all start at home for the first tie. While the second ties will be on the road. I honestly do not know that much about these clubs. So picking winners in these match-ups is like drawing a number out of a hat. I do want to see Linfield FC win and advance to second round. As for the other two match-ups. I don't really care. But for picking purposes. I will go with F91 Dudelange and Valletta FC to join Linfield FC in the second round. Like i said before first ties are being played on July 3rd while the second ties are on July 10th.
