First leg score: AIK 1-1 Shkëndija
Shkëndija vs AIK
Both teams to score NO- 10/11!
Following last week’s first leg in Stockholm, this tie is completely in the balance.
A week ago, Ferhan Hasani broke the deadlock in the first minute at Friends Arena, only for John Guidetti to equalise 15 minutes later.
That was the end of the scoring in Solna, meaning it is winner takes all in Skopje.
AIK have not featured in a UEFA group stage for a decade, failing in qualifying on six occasions subsequently.
In the previous round, they needed extra time to overcome Vorskla Poltava, and are going to need another road victory here.
Shkëndija meantime have reached the play-offs on three previous occasions.
However, they were beaten each time, losing to Gent, A.C. Milan and Rosenborg, most recently in 2018.
This season, the Macedonian side have beaten Ararat Yerevan and Valmiera, winning the home leg in both of those ties.
So, Artim Šakiri’s side will be confident of getting through this one.
Whoever advances will face Czech Cup winners Slovácko in the Europa Conference League play-off round.
