FCK, Aalborg handed decent Champions League draws

FCK got Bayer Leverkusen and Aab drew Apoel FC

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.

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.
