Denmark got into a couple of wars with Prussia over the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein in the 19th Century. The Danes took the first round in 1849, but lost decisively in 1864. Swedish neutrality in the second war is one of the reasons why the Danes still hate the Swedes. To mark the 150th anniversary of the war, Danish television has produced this historical epic.
Partick Thistle visit Cappielow for the second round of the Scottish League Cup.
The last time these two clubs met was April 10th, 2013, at Firhill, when Thistle definitively ended Morton's First Division title run. It seems so long ago now.
2013-14 was a disastrous season for Morton -- all except the League Cup. The Ton made it to the quarterfinals, defeating Celtic along the way, their best showing since 1979-80 when they last made the semi-finals.
Apparently it's wrong to call Partick Thistle Partick, you must call them Thistle. ~Because there are so few Scottish clubs named Thistle, and so many from Partick.~
The Scottish League Cup is without a sponsor this year.
[Greenock Morton 0 - 1 Partick Thistle. Morton are out of the League Cup.]
[UEFA Champions League: Celtic 0 - 1 Maribor. Celtic are out of the Champions League.]
