UEFA Cup Draw

Aston Villa will play FH Hafnarfjardar of Iceland in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup.

The first leg is to be played at Villa Park on Thursday 14th August, with the away leg being played on Thursday 28th August.

Aston Villa had beaten Odense BK (agg 3-2) in the Intertoto Cup to secure a place in the draw.

Martin O'Neill told the official site:

"We're excited just to be in the draw first of all. We had two tough games against Odense and now we're determined to do as well as possible.

"The fans showed last weekend they have an appetite for European football and I'm sure they'll back us against FH Hafnarfjardar."

According to multiple media sources it's "a kind draw" for the Villa. Let's hope they're right; we don't want another tester a la Odense!

Looks like the home and away legs will be switched around. Away first, home second.

Sound easy, with some defensive cover, don't see why progressing should be a problem.

Brings back many happy memories of beating Valur of Iceland 6-0 over two legs, on our way to lifting the European Champions Cup back in '82.
