Match preview

Royal Antwerp had to battle through the second qualifying round, but the difficulty level is only set to increase.

The Reds took on Dirta in the previous round and, after a goalless draw at home, had to win in Kosovar last Thursday.

Laurit Krasniqi broke the deadlock before Michel-Ange Balikwisha sealed the win in the eighth minute of stoppage time.

The 1993 Cup Winners’ Cup finalists have reached the Europa League group phase in both of the last two seasons.

Thus, in a lower-tier of competition, Mark van Bommel’s team are expected to come through this qualifiers too.

Lillestrøm meantime demolished Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho 6-2 on aggregate in the previous round.

After a 1-0 victory in Finland, last week’s match in Norway was a goal-fest, featuring a hat-trick from Hólmbert Friðjónsson.

So, this is already the Canaries’ best run in UEFA competition since 1997, and they’ll need to upset the odds to continue this adventure.

Will there be a winner at Åråsen Stadion?
