First leg score: Pyunik 0-0 FC Sheriff
After the first leg finished goalless at Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium, it’s winner takes all in Chișinău.
FC Sheriff enjoyed a remarkable European campaign last season, reaching the Champions League group stages for the very first time.
Once there, the Transnistrian club beat Real Madrid at the Bernabéu before falling in the Europa League knockout stages.
This year, the Yellow-Blacks began by ousting HŠK Zrinjski Mostar and Maribor, drawing 0-0 away and then winning 1-0 at home both times, a blueprint they’ll be trying to replicate here.
However, Sheriff were subsequently eliminated from Champions League qualifying by Viktoria Plzeň, losing both legs 2-1.
Stjepan Tomas’ side will feature in a group stage again this year, but in what competition will it be?
Pyunik meantime have already made history by qualifying for a first-ever group phase.
The Armenian club overcame Cluj and Dudelange in Champions League qualification, before being hammered 7-0 by Crvena zvezda.
Nevertheless, this is their first appearance in the play-offs and Yegishe Melikyan will lead them into a group stage next month.
Now, can Pyunik spring a surprise at Zimbru Stadium?
