No. 203: Racing FC (Luxembourg)

The championship of the Luxembourg National Division looks as though it will remain with F91 Dudelange, but the UEFA Cup spots appear certain to change.

F91 Dudelange has a remarkable +34 through 16 rounds of the LND, sitting seven points clear of its nearest competitor. For Racing FC and CS Grevenmacher, life is not nearly so good.

Racing lost its UEFA Cup first qualifying round tie against Kalmar (Sweden) by a 10-1 aggregate, one of the worst losses of the competition. Kalmar did go on and win in the next round to show its worth, but 10-1 is ugly no matter how you slice it.

Play in the LND has been no better for Racing. It sits 7th in the league, 16 points shy of the leaders and six points short of a UEFA Cup spot. The best hope for Racing might be in the domestic cup where they are still alive.

Hello there,
I am Peter Robert Casey and I am a basketball columnist. I have initiated an idea to create a sports blogroll where bloggers from all sports disciplines could participate. All you need to do is to add my blog link to your blog and i'll do the same. That way, we could have a mutual partnership and we could refer visitors to each other's blog.
Please let me know if you would be interested.

Your's in Hoops,
Peter Robert Casey
