Brann Stadion, in the Norwegian city of Bergen, is the starting point for Brann and Shamrock Rovers of the Republic of Ireland for the second qualifying round for the 2019/2020 European League group stage. The meeting, scheduled for Thursday, July 11, has kick-off scheduled for 14h (Brasília time). The return game is scheduled for July 18.With 17 clubs pre-classified for their group stage, the Europa League has 21 posts open to define the 12 keys of their initial stage. The process is complex and even involves the ‘reuse’ of teams eliminated in the qualifying competition for the Champions League. The Europa League qualifiers count on five stages. The first, called the preliminary, was completed. It had 14 clubs, and seven went to second stage, which received the name of the first qualifying round. It has 94 teams, of which 47 will advance.In the second qualifying round, they will join 27 pre-qualifiers, who can start the competition later on by having a better position in the Uefa ranking, which organizes the competition. Thus, the 74-team key will be reduced to 37. In the third qualifying round, they join 13 pre-ranked teams and two ‘relegated’ clubs in the second round of the Champions League totaling 52 contenders. The 26 winners go to the final stage, which has gained the name of playoffs.In this final stage, they will receive 16 teams from the Europa League qualifying and six defeats of the Champions League playoffs, forming the 21 pairings that will indicate the rivals of the already classified Sevilla (Spain), Arsenal (England), Rome (Italy) , Manchester United (England), Besiktas (Turkey), Sporting (Portugal), CSKA (Russia), Wolfsburg Germany, Lazio Italy Borussia Monchengladbach Germany Saint-Etienne France Getafe Spain Rennes (France), Mechelen (Belgium), Olexandriya (Ukraine), Wolfsberg (Austria) and Lugano (Switzerland).The duels are played in the round-trip system with the team that adds up the most advancing points. In case of equality, goal balance and more goals scored in the rival’s house, in this order, are used to tie the duel. Extension and decision by penalties, at the end of the second meeting, are the last resources to define the survivor.
Brann was shaken after being knocked out on June 26 of the Norwegian Cup when he was beaten 4-0 by Ranheim in the round of 16. He has not won since.

However, on Friday, July 5, he did not go from 0 to 0, in his dominions, with the Mjondalen.
