Growing Dudelange up against Salzburg

F91 Dudelange have landed the toughest of second qualifying round tasks against FC Salzburg but general sporting director Guy Hellers tells UEFA.com the club are growing.

Having comfortably seen off SP Tre Penne 11-0 on aggregate to reach the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round, F91 Dudelange have something of a tougher task to get any further – facing FC Salzburg, who visit for the first leg on Tuesday.

The ambitious Austrian outfit have appeared in the last three UEFA Europa League group stages and are keen to repeat the trick in the UEFA Champions League having missed out at the final hurdle four times in six years. Meanwhile Dudelange, formed from a merger in 1991, have won ten Luxembourg titles in 13 seasons, but the tie against San Marino's Tre Penne marked only the third time they had made it through a round of European competition.

However, Dudelange have set their sights high and general sporting director Guy Hellers – the former national coach – explains in this UEFA.com video why they are hoping to do better than on their maiden second qualifying round appearance in 2005/06, when they lost 9-3 on aggregate to SK Rapid Wien, and how their thriving youth structure is aiding the club.
