FC Copenhagen have a difficult task ahead of them in the Champions League qualification playoff after drawing German giants Bayer Leverkusen today in UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Swtzerland.

But it could perhaps have been much worse with Arsenal, Porto, Zenit St. Petersburg and Napoli the remaining four teams in the pot.

Aab Aalborg, on the other hand, was given perhaps the best possible draw possible after drawing Cypriot outfit Apoel FC.

The two Danish teams both start at home against their opposition on either August 19 or 20, while the return legs will be played on either August 26 or 27.

And then there were three
Esbjerg and Brøndby both bowed out of the Europa League qualification yesterday, leaving FCK, Aab and FC Midtjylland as the last three Danish teams in Europe.

FCM’s Europa League playoff draw, which took place an hour later, paired the wolves with Greek giants Panathanaikos.

Brøndby were hammered by Club Brugge 5-0 on aggregate, while Esbjerg conceded a goal deep into injury time to Ruch Chorzow to go out on away goals despite drawing 2-2 on aggregate.
