PIC: Lusitanos has room for 900!

1996Lusitanos will have to play their match against the Hammer in another stadium it has emerged.

Initially we believed you’d have to  be first in the “queue” if you are planning a trip to the first qualifying leg.

The club’s tiny stadium holds just 900 spectators in a picturesque area surrounded by the Andorran mountains but the ground does not meet Uefa standards.

The team are no mugs and have had European experience although let’s be fair, we should be expected to cruise through the first round.

Err shouldn’t we?

  1. Lol,no mugs.We must fear them.Be wary of them.Dont under estimate the minnows.They will be right up for the game.They have nothing to lose.The pressure will be on us!!
    Oh no,sorry,forgot,Hippos gone.Maybe Slav might just say it how it is without being disrespectful.We should absolutely mash them 😉

  2. Looks like we’ve got a mountain to climb to get through this one lol

  3. I heard that Andorran teams often play their home European legs in Spanish stadia, is there any truth in that?

    • Well Wales played Andorra recently at one of their little grounds.Think it only held about 850.So i dont know if a game against us will be moved.Its fine,we can fit a few thousand on the sides of the mountains 😉

  4. Their last 4 european games they have scored once and conceded seventeen times if we should at least score ten!

  5. I’m pretty sure I flew over this ground on my holiday to Spain a few weeks back, IF it is the one it is in the middle of nowhere lol. Think we only get 10% for away allocation as well don’t we? That’s 90 lucky bas*ards then lol
