Champions League Draw: Dundalk Have To Earn Chance To Avenge Defeat

Champions League Draw: Dundalk Have To Earn Chance To Avenge Defeat
By John Balfe Updated

Dundalk have been handed an opportunity to avenge last season's defeat to BATE Borisov in the Champions League, assuming they can get past Icelandic side Hafnarfjordur next Wednesday.

The two sides are deadlocked after a 1-1 draw at Oriel Park and, despite conceding the away goal, Dundalk will know that they have every chance of advancing to the next round where they would play the winner of BATE and Finnish outfit SJK.

BATE bested Dundalk 2-1 on aggregate last year in a tightly contested game in which Dundalk could have counted themselves unfortunate not to advance.

Meanwhile, Celtic will play either Kazakh team Astana or Zalgiris Vilnius of Lithuania provided they are able to recover from arguably the most embarassing defeat in their history against Gibraltar's Lincoln Red Imps in the return leg in Glasgow.

In the Europa League draw St. Patrick's Athletic, who last night bagged an away goal in Belarus against Dinamo Minsk, will face either Vojvodina of Serbia or Welsh side Connah's Quay in the third round if they are able to finish off the job in the second leg at Richmond Park.

Cork City might be off to Belgium to face Genk if they get past Sweden's BK Häcken. Cork hold an away goal advantage from the first leg.
