One of the first clubs I visit in Luxembourg is US Esch. Last season the club became champions in the 2nd division and will play in the 1st division for the second time in their history but for the first time in 92 (!) years. The club can finally prepare for beautiful derbies against Fola Esch and Jeunesse Esch.

Todays game against Racing FC Union Luxemburg was quite a good win with good football from both sides. The visitors were a bit stronger and deserved the win in their 2nd friendly of the season.

US Esch has rather small ground with an artificial pitch but has a lovely little roof to protect most of their fans from rain.
