Cardiff City captain Caroline Cooper admits that her side's UEFA Women's Cup draw has been a tough one.
Cardiff head off to Croatia for their fifth European campaign to play WFC Osijek, as well as Dezembro of Portugal and Belgian Champions FCL Rapide Wezemaal.
Two of their opponents are known to the Welsh side; four years ago they defeated Osijek 4-2 but were beaten 3-0 by Dezembro in 2005.
Last season, Cardiff narrowly missed out on qualifying from their group when they lost the deciding match against Saestum, who went on to reach the quarter finals.
"This is going to be another tough challenge for us," says Caroline. "We know something about the Portuguese side, having played them before and we beat the host team in our first UEFA Cup campaign. The only unknown side is FCL Rapide Wezemaal but they have a decent European pedigree.
"We are disappointed to be the third seeds in our group after being seeded second last season, but we will approach this year's competition looking to become the first Welsh team to progress in Europe and to have a good UEFA Cup campaign in Croatia will put us in good stead for the forthcoming season in the Premier League."
