Continuation of football activities

Since December 2021 football has not being played in Ukraine because of: first players went on deserved winter break, and then the war broke out in the country this February. Hence the whole last season got suspended while on 12 July it was revealed that the new one will start this month.
Former Olympic champion, and now minister of youth and sports Wadim Hutzajt announced the plan that the 2022-23 season would start on 23 August. Each duels are going to be played without spectators, whilst stadia will be equipped with shelters in case of air-raid siren would sound out.
This date was deliberately chosen for beginning because it is a day of the National flag of Ukraine.

13 August 2022

Forbidden name was mentioned

In some parts of the world the following name is loveable by many, while at the other end it is forbidden even to be mentioned. Exactly the second scenario happened at the football game in Turkey.
Fenerbahce and Dynamo Kyiv played their match on 27 July at the second elimination round of the Champions league event. During the duel the home public have chanted the name of Vladimir Putin, and that was the reason that the European football organization has conducted an investigation into this matter. At the end (somehow) they have concluded that the club was guilty of the behaviour of their spectators who just wanted to distract the guests. Because of that (incident) seven days ago the club was ordered to pay 50.000 euros.
And the same affiliation today has punished Hajduk who in the third phase of the Conference league played against Vitoria. Racist chants from their fans was the main reason of why this was issued, thus in the next match of the Croatian club against Villarreal at the play off stage have to close section of their stadium plus give away 23.000 euros.

Have to appear in court for fraud

Because of (possible) irregularities of his transfer from Santos to Barcelona in 2013, Brazilian striker Neymar da Silva have to appear at court. At that time the Catalan club paid 88 million euros, but it was calculated that the overseas move had costed a lot more.
In the tribunal of the same city the 30-year-old will be charged with fraud corruption, and if guilty can spend two years behind bars. Over there would also as witnesses be his father and two former club presidents (Josep maria Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell). However it is more interesting that the trial is going to start 17 October, just one month before the start of the World Cup, and the whole process would last two weeks.

The guilty party for this circumstance lies in the fact that follows way down in this article. Here, ten overall winners are going to go through to the next phase, and ten losers will be dropped one step lower.
Tuesday, 09 August at 18.00 CET: Zalgiris - Bodo/Glimt.
Tuesday, 09 August at 19.00 CET: Apollon - Maccabi Haifa.
Tuesday, 09 August at 19.00 CET: Pyunik - Crvena zvezda.
Tuesday, 09 August at 19.00 CET: Viktoria - Sheriff.
Tuesday, 09 August at 19.45 CET: Midtjylland - Benfica.
Tuesday, 09 August at 20.00 CET: Dinamo Zagreb - Ludogorets.
Tuesday, 09 August at 20.00 CET: Ferencvaros - Qarabag.

Europa league is that one lower step. The first 7 matches were staged this week, thus this were treated as third elimination round (and not the first). Clubs who will be eliminated from the tournament would be transferred onto the third event by significance.
Tuesday, 09 August at 21.00 CET: Skupi - Samrock rovers.

Thursday, 11 August at 18.00 CET: HJK- Maribor.
Thursday, 11 August at 19.00 CET: Slovacko - Fenerbahce.
Thursday, 11 August at 19.00 CET: Zurich - Linfield.
Thursday, 11 August at 20.00 CET: Diddeleng - Malmo.
Thursday, 11 August at 20.30 CET: Slovan - Olympiacos.
Thursday, 11 August at 21.00 CET: Partizan - AEK (Larnaca).

The real reason of why 'the best' competition is playing on only one night is this one. Each year the Super Cup brings the winners of Champions against Europa league who are battling each other from the previous season (in this case 2021-22). Because this is a single match or a final one as well, the possibility of the game that may last longer stands.
Wednesday, 10 August at 21.00: Real Madrid - Eintracht Frankfurt.

07 August 2022

Change of schedule has been confirmed

Because African Cup of nations from 2023 is moved to January 2024, plus another major football world competition is staging in November / December periods, hence the qualifiers have been shifted as well. On 31 July the confederation has revealed the revised schedule of the remaining elimination games where all are going to be staged next year.
As first two rounds were played on summer (June), three and four originally supposed to kick-off off this September. Now new dates are between 20 and 28 March. Fifth phase would begin out of 12 as far as 20 June, while sixth have to be held from 04 until 12 September. The old layout said that the last two stages had to be played in March 2023.

06 August 2022

Pairs connected for play-off

We are currently in the middle of the third qualifying phase of the three European international club tournaments, however before the kick off (this Tuesday) the confederation has conducted the draw for the final one. One interesting detail was done during the ceremonies: for the first time two pairs are written twice which are going to be played with each other in two (different) competitions, however the opponents would not and cannot be the same.

Only the winners from the penultimate phase will progress through to the last elimination duels. The current 2021-22 champions from Denmark and Turkiye are the two new participants in the Champions league tournament, and those clubs have formed the only known pair of the play-off stage as well. Schedule for leg one games are 16 and 17 August, while everything will be decided seven nights later.

Qarabag or Ferencvaros - Sheriff or Viktoria.
Bodo/Glimt or Zalgiris - Ludogorets or Dinamo Zagreb (this is the same pair from Europa league, but there the losers from both duels are going to battle each other).
Maccabi Haifa or Apollon (Limassol) - Crvena zvezda or Pyunik.
Kobenhavn - Trabzonspor.
Dynamo Kyiv or Sturm - Benfica or Midtjylland.
Union Saint-Gilloise or Glasgow rangers - Monaco or PSV.

Europa league awaits the losers from the predecessor competition. From the ten upcoming matches: one duel is instantly familiar, whilst the other nine have to wait until its completion. Dates for this event are only two: 18 and 25 August.

Dnipro-1 - AEK (Larnaca) or Partizan.
Gent - Omonia.
Austria Wien - Fenerbahce or Slovacko.
Linfield or Zurich - Hearts.
Maribor or HJK - Silkeborg.
Malmo or Diddeleng - Sivasspor.
Qarabag or Ferencvaros - Samrock Rovers or Skupi.
Maccabi Haifa or Apollon (Limassol) - Olympiacos or Slovan.
Crvena zvezda or Pyunik - Sheriff or Viktoria.
Ludogorets or Dinamo Zagreb - Bodo/Glimt or Zalgiris (this pair is exactly identical from Champions league where the winners of both matches will battle each other, but in reverse order).

First and second leg for the Conference league is exactly the same like the predecessor. Losing teams from there are going to play at this event. As it stands from now, there is not known a single duel upfront, so each club will learn its rival next week.
