Match preview

After a goalless draw at Stadion Ljudski vrt, it’s winner takes all in Transnistria.

A week ago, Sheriff created all the chances in Slovenia, but were held to a goalless draw on the road.

Nevertheless, this would suggest the Divizia Națională champions are in a strong position to advance.

Last season, Sheriff qualified for the Champions League group stages for the very first time, winning four qualifiers to get there.

Then, the Moldovan side stunned the world by beating Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabéu.

Given this, Stjepan Tomas’ side will not want to fall in this round of qualifying.

Maribor meanwhile featured in five UEFA group phases between 2011 and 2017, two of the Champions League variety.

However, since their most recent five years ago, the Purples have won just six of 11 qualification ties.

Given that they’ve only won four of their last 14 European away matches, the Slovenian champions are now massive underdogs.

Will the home side claim a victory at Sheriff Stadium?

The winners of this tie will take on Viktoria Plzeň or HJK in the Champions League third qualifying round.

The losers drop into the Europa League third qualifying round where they’ll face the losers of that same tie.
