Match preview

The eight-times champions of Poland take on the 12-times champions of Sweden for a place in a major European quarter-final.

Last summer, Djurgårdens IF qualified for a UEFA group stage for the very first time by beating Rijeka, Sepsi OSK Sfântu Gheorghe and then APOEL.

Once there, they could easily have been mistaken for seasoned-veteran, accumulating 16 points and topping their section with ease.

So, Djurgården are on the cusp of reaching the last eight of a UEFA competition for the first time since 1960.

The biggest challenge facing Kim Bergstrand and Thomas Lagerlöf’s team will be a lack of match-fitness.

The new Allsvenskan season doesn’t kick off until 1 April, with the Blue Stripes beating minnows Landskrona, Örebro and Brommapojkarna in recent Svenska Cupen fixtures.

This will be a substantially tougher task, so can Djurgården rediscover their pre-World Cup form?

Lech Poznań, in contrast, have already overcome a Nordic club in the knockouts, ousting Bodø/Glimt last month.

The only goal of the tie was scored by a Sweden international, namely Mikael Ishak, coming in the second leg in Poland.

Having finished above Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Austria Wien in the group phase, the Railwaymen are competing in the knockout stages for the first time in 12 years.

Now, John van den Brom is dreaming of leading the Ekstraklasa champions into a European quarter-final for the first time ever.

Will Lech make home advantage count at Stadion Poznań?

Lech Poznań team news

The aforementioned Mikael Ishak is Lech Poznań's captain and danger man, having scored 19 goals this season, and 17 in UEFA competitions for the club.

Midfielder Radosław Murawski, who missed Friday’s 5-0 Ekstraklasa win over Lechia Gdańsk suspended, will return in midfield.

Scotland international left-back Barry Douglas could start, chosen over Pedro Rebocho.

Djurgården team news

Midfielder Rasmus Schüller will miss the first leg suspended, having been booked three times during the group phase.

Captain Magnus Eriksson shone during the group stage, scoring once and providing four assists.
