    Not sure why no Kazakhstani clubs here, when Kairat's in the Champions League qualifiers. This new way they group teams by region could easily have given us a match featuring an Armenian club vs an Azerbaijani club. Yikes! Maybe the powers that be made sure that didn't happen.

    TRIVIA: Lenkoran (Aze) is a city just north of the Iranian border. The local language is Talish, not Azerbaijani. Talish is a Persian language, making Lenkoran probably only the second club from a city whose indigenous language is of Persian extraction to play in European competion. Rep to the first person who can guess the other club and city (or a third club/city I'm unaware of).
