At first glance it could definitely be worse overall given both the last 32 and last 16 stages have been drawn.

However - although they are both rounds that although we should progress from if we have designs on winning the competition - our opponents could potentially cause us problems.

FC Copenhagen are likely to be a better side than FC Midtjylland - who caused us problems, whilst Aalborg performed creditibly in the Champions League and Deportivo have a good pedigree in Europe.

Given the competition is now on the backburner until mid-February though, the ideal scenario would be for us to have picked up form in the league and have one or two additions in the squad ahead of the first leg in Denmark.
