  1. ^ a b De Treffers are mentioned two times in the preliminary round, which is probably incorrect. It is possible another team has played in this round, however, that would be difficult to find out. Since 31 professional and eight amateur clubs are first mentioned in the group stage, it is possible one of those clubs actually already played in the preliminary round.
