Limassol is a great little city, been a few times. Won't get any trouble and a great place for a few beers by the sea.

Hopefully that was just a fluke season From Atalanta and Kessie has gone now hasn't he?

Lyon will be tough, especially that away game. Gotta hope it is fortress Goodison again this season!

No idea what the other side are like but I think they knocked out Aberdeen in qualifying. Not sure what that tells us!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Some potential for a nice few away days there.

I've been to Lyon and it is a stunning city.

Good point, and Lyon lost Lacazette of course, so could be a change in form for both this season.

@hill135 to provide update on Atalanta but I think they've lost a few players?

Lyon isn't easy as they're a consistent side who is used to playing in Europe with the prospect of a final in their home ground.

Appollon only just beat Aberdeen.

Oh really? Fair enough

Altanta finished 4th in Serie A last season......4th?!?!

We could be in trouble, that is a very hard group

They were the suprise package last season, but they have lost two of thier best players in Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti to AC Milan this summer.

They replaced Kessie with Marten de Roon from Middlesbourough which might give you an idea of their standard.

Pretty happy with this, were better than all of them and the flights are only a couple of hours so should help us in the league. Rather play better teams on better pitches

In decent locations you might want to stay in..

Lyon and Atalanta aren't the same sides any more. That draw coulda been a lot worse.

Cyprus is a long trip bear in mind. Just because it's a popular holiday destination doesn't mean it's not, apart from the Israeli sides, as far as it gets in terms of the South east of Europe.
