[Archived] Blackburn 2 - 0 Red Bull Salzburg


Recommended Posts

Rovers have never won a game in the EUFA cup.

We certainly have come close; including the memorable 3-3 in Sofia, after Tommo, Ostenstad and Duffer put us 3 up a couple of years ago. And at Celtic park, in the very net round we totally battered the hoops for 85 minutes, playing the best football of the Souness regime, only to suffer a late Larsson winner.

These were only the latest installments of a fairly pathetic run of games in this competition, which started in our title season with a game against Swedish minnows Trelleborgs. A 0-1 home defeat in the first leg, despite once again dominating the game, Rovers were apparently home and hosed in the second leg at 2-1 up until they scored another late equalizer to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Then more heroics in Lyon followed, but again they were ultimately in vain as 2-2 was just enough for the French to progress.

Personally, I feel if we go through this tie and into the group stages, with our two match back-to back Premiership wins the season really starts to take some kind of shape and Blackburn look well placed to make it a season to remember.

Determining point of the season.

Win and we lay the UEFA bogey plus have four more European nights to look forwards to no doubt popping out of bag 4 in the UEFA draw with 3 higher ranked clubs already waiting for us but what the hell- boro and Bolton topped their groups last year so we should be ok.

Lose or draw 3-3 and all last year's good work in coming 6th are down the loo. What is there left to kick-on with?

Rovers to win 3-1 in front of 19,000.

Are you sure about that? There is nothing at all about it in the Sky planner or the TV Choice magazine either.

There was a big hoo ha about it for the away leg, with the link to the article on their website sayign they were showing us - then it corrected to they were showing the SECOND leg.

we wont win so we have to hope for 0-0 or 1-1

we come into this game on the back ofa good performance against boro with a clean sheet

salzburg come into this on the back of a defeat against a team that is probably equal to oldham

we should win, but we are cursed in europe, the odds will be nice on salzburg progressing, worth a fiver

I live in Norway, and get Eurosport and Eurosport 2. Does anyone know if any of these channels will show the game?

Don't know about Eurosport 2, but Eurosport does not show it as they are running the the Tottenham game istead.
