No. 209: UE Sant Julia (Andorra)

Yes, that's right, I said No. 209. That's how many teams are competing in the 2008/2009 Champions League and UEFA Cup.

As last year's winner of Andorra's domestic cup, Sant Julia earned the UEFA Cup nod. They were defeated by a 9-0 aggregate score by Bulgaria's Cherno Moore in the first qualification round. That was tied for the second worst aggregate loss in European competition this year (although Cherno Moore did go on to win its second qualification tie before losing in the third qualification round).

Sant Julia does lead this year's Primera Divisio and could be in the Champions League next year. Andorra's top division is currently 50th out of 52 teams in UEFA's coefficient ranking.
