Legia Warsaw face an uphill battle in their Champions League second qualifying round encounter as they trail Spartak Trnava 2-0 after the first leg.

Trnava have advanced beyond the second round of Champions League qualification in five of the last seven seasons and they are an enticing price to win to nil on home soil against the Poles.

Macedonian champions Shkendija won the first leg of their Champions League second qualifying round tie against Sheriff Tiraspol and they can finish the job off in Moldova.

Champions League qualifiers are unusual territory for Shkendija but they have plenty of European experience, having advanced to the Europa League playoffs in the last two seasons.

Shkendija have won seven of their last nine two-legged continental ties and backing them to advance with either a win or a draw looks a value bet.

Pyunik host Tobol Kostanay in the return leg of their Europa League second-round qualifier and the visitors, holding a 2-1 lead from the first game, can see off a Pyunik team who have never made it beyond the second phase of qualification in a European competition.
