Canadians in UEFA competitions 2021/2022


Recommended Posts

Some early UEFA draws yesterday/today and Champion League Preliminary round starts next week.  Also, we have our Gold Cup and Octagon schedules to compare. Watching the Euros, so I thought I would start looking at Canadians in the coming Champions League, Europa League and the new Conference League. Living document as it were, add and correct at will. I will start with the basics - pre transfers of course 

 

Champions League  

 Group Stage - (Draw – Aug 26) (First Matchday – Sept 14)  

   - Alphonso Davies - Bayern  

   - Jonathan David - Lille 

   - Atiba Hutchison and Cyle Larin - Beskitas. 

 

Third Qualifying Round - 

    - Scott Arfield – Malmö (SWE) / HJK Helsinki (FIN) vs Rangers (SCO) (Aug 3)

 

Second Qualifying Round   

    - Milan Borjan -  Kairat Almaty (KAZ) vs Crvena zvezda (SRB) (21 July) 

Will face Alashkert (ARM) / Sheriff Tiraspol (MDA) if they advance. 

 

Europa League 

Third Qualifying Round 

   - David Wotherspoon – PSV Eindhoven (NED) / Galatasaray (TUR) vs St Johnstone (SCO) (Aug 5)

 

Conference League

    - Stephen Eustáquio - Paços de Ferreira (POR) vs Larne (NIR) / AGF Aarhus (DEN) (Aug 5)

Will face Újpest (HUN) / Vaduz (LIE) if they advance.

 

   - Michael Argyrides -  Larne (NIR) vs AGF Aarhus- (22 July) 

Will face Paços de Ferreira (POR) if they advance.

 

  - Georgi Atanasov - Arda Kardzhali (BUL) / Hapoel Beer-Sheva (ISR) (22 July)

I'm a little confused about Besiktas. The uefa site seems to indicate they are in the last qualifying round, but wiki (which is usually quite reliable on this sort of thing) indicates they are in the group stage

I hope we get to see more of our guys sign with European clubs because the more guys who do that, the more Canadian players we could potentially have playing Champions League football in the future which does even more wonders for our men's program.

They are in the qualifiers in the access list.

But since Chelsea didn't need the CL winners place (they qualified via their  league position) a few teams were bumped up a level.  Besiktas were one.

If that makes sense?

Yes it does. Thank you

Europa League 

Third Qualifying Round - (Draw - Jul 19) (First Matchday – Aug 5)    

   - David Wotherspoon – St Johnstone.  

 

Conference League  

Third Qualifying Round - (Draw - Jul 19) (First Matchday – Aug 5)      

    - Stephen Eustáquio - FC Paços de Ferreira 

 

First Qualifying Round  

    - Michael Argyrides - Bala Town (WAL) vs Larne (NIR) - (8 July) 

But also seeing this many Canadians trying to play Champions League football, the only one who probably has a shot at getting to the Champions League Final is Davies with Bayern Munich.

The  third qualifying round draws for UEFA competitions were yesterday, so I updated the following in the original post. Also includes some results.

Champions League  

Third Qualifying Round - 

    - Scott Arfield – Malmö (SWE) / HJK Helsinki (FIN) vs Rangers (SCO) (Aug 3)

Second Qualifying Round   

    - Milan Borjan -  Kairat Almaty (KAZ) vs Crvena zvezda (SRB) (21 July) 

Will face Alashkert (ARM) / Sheriff Tiraspol (MDA) if they advance. 

Europa League 

Third Qualifying Round 

   - David Wotherspoon – PSV Eindhoven (NED) / Galatasaray (TUR) vs St Johnstone (SCO) (Aug 5)

Conference League  

Third Qualifying Round   

    - Stephen Eustáquio - Paços de Ferreira (POR) vs Larne (NIR) / AGF Aarhus (DEN) (Aug 5)    

Second Qualifying Round 

   - Liam Millar - Basel 1893 (SUI) vs Partizani (ALB) (22 July)

Will face Újpest (HUN) / Vaduz (LIE) if they advance.

   - Michael Argyrides -  Larne (NIR) vs AGF Aarhus- (22 July) 

Will face Paços de Ferreira (POR) if they advance.

 

Argyrides has yet to play for Larne (been the backup keeper), but a possible interesting match up there if Eustaquio remains with Pacos.  Was always going to be tough draw for St Johnstone (Champions League drop downs), on paper does not look bad for some of the others. 

I have not included some players that I am unsure will be with senior squads like Jules-Anthony Vilsaint.  But again any additions/corrections would be great.

Eustaquio and Pacos to face Tottenham in the next round of Conference League.

 

Eustaquio could become my favourite player ever if he is still there and they dump out the fine gentlemen from North London. 

That said they are getting a little ahead of themselves, aren't they?  Still have to beat the NI team.
