I was looking at the draw for the qualifying playoff rounds which start this week and am surprised to see they are actually 2 legged ties which leads me to some questions:

1) This is the opposite of the main Champs League regular playoff path where you have the teams that advance out of the group stage all play double legged game with a single game in the finals.

2) I assume (??) they are doing the 2 legged format now because the loser of these playoff legs drop automatically into the Europa League group stage and there's a lot of money at stake between a potential Champs League spot and an Europa League spot even if you are gonna be minnows of their respective groups which probably most of these teams will be. But why wait until the final playoff round to implement that?? Benfica had a tough draw against PAOK in Greece, lost 2-1 but had a stoppage time goal. Too bad they were already down 2-0 and that was deep in stoppage time so all PAOK had to do was kick it around for a bit on the ensuing kickoff to win, but that potentially cost Benfica a few thousand dollars. Usually I would say with them its meaningless because they sell everyone that looks to be on an upward trajectory by age 23, but they've signed Vertongen & Cavani this summer so they actually spent some money and they should've gotten a reply in Portugal.

3) So if they want to keep the teams on an even playing field in this last round, why not just play at neutral sites then??

I haven't checked the Europa League yet but since they are still a round behind the Champions League at this point I assume they will keep the 1 legged games.
