Match preview

ŠK Slovan Bratislava are big favourites to win this leg and advance through the two-legged contest in general.

The Sky Blues won their 24th league title last season, crowned Slovak Super Liga champions for the fourth season in a row.

In Europe, their finest hour came 53 years ago, beating FC Barcelona 3-2 to win the Cup Winners' Cup Final in Basel.

In modern times, group stage football has been their ambition, achieving this in 2011, 2014, 2019 and last season.

So, Slovan Bratislava have won seven of their last 13 qualification ties, looking to improve that ratio further in this contest.

FC Dinamo Batumi meanwhile were crowned Georgian champions for the first time in 2021; they're nine points clear at the top of the Erovnuli Liga again.

In Europe though, they've only ever won four of 13 ties, although two of those victories did come last season.

Dinamo Batumi beat S.P. Tre Penne and then BATE Borisov, the latter a big shock, before falling to Turkish outfit Sivasspor.

Here, they'll just be looking to still be in the tie when the two reconvene in Georgia next mid-week.

The winners of this tie will take on Ferencváros or Tobol in the second round of Champions League qualifying.

Whoever loses will drop into the Europa Conference League second qualifying round and take on the losers of Lech Poznań vs Qarabağ.
