Just looked back at the draw there. All I can say is what a spot that was, Barry. 🧐

Glad to know I wasn’t the only one confused by that, Andy. Basically, it means that the losers of that tie, who would normally have dropped into the Europa League second qualifying round, will receive a bye into the third qualifying round.

Those dates shouldn’t change unless UEFA switch the order for some reason. Wouldn’t put it past them though, given today’s confusion surrounding the Second Qualifying Round draw, which now takes place tomorrow apparently.

Dundalk to play Latvian champions Riga FC in the First Qualifying Round of the Champions League. The first leg should be played at Oriel Park on July 9/10th, while the second leg should be played at the Skonto Stadium on July 16/17th.

Second Qualifying Round draw takes place on the same day. Dundalk could face one of Copenhagen, Dinamo Zagreb, APOEL or the winners of the ties involving Celtic, BATE, Astana, Ludogorets, Qarabag, Maribor and Red Star Belgrade.

Dundalk’s possible opponents ahead of the Champions League First Qualifying Round draw, which takes place next week (June 18th). A trip to Estonia, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania or Northern Ireland is the most likely outcome.

Wouldn’t dispute that. It was far from vintage Dundalk as outlined in the report.

Neither ‘keeper was ever really worked in the first half to be fair, but Mark McGinley did have to pick the ball out of his net twice. To suggest that the game was anything other than comfortable for Dundalk is nothing short of ludicrous.

Biased in what sense? The report documents all of Finn Harps' chances and is even somewhat critical of Dundalk’s performance following their third goal. This is purely based on the assumption that you've actually read the report though.

Report from Finn Park – Dundalk extended their lead at the top of the to five points last night thanks to an easy 3-0 win over Finn Harps. Not a bad way to go into the mid-season break.

Finn Park is the venue for tonight’s fixture between Finn Harps and Dundalk. Another three points for the Lilywhites would see them go into the mid-season break on the back of 11 wins from 12 matches.
