The Bit o' Red face a potential trip to Wales or Poland if they overcome Norwegian outfit Molde in the second qualifying round of the Champions League

Sligo Rovers will face either Legia Warsaw or The New Saints in the next round of the Champions League, should they overcome Molde FK in the second qualifying round.

The Bit o' Red currently trail Molde by one goal after losing the first leg 1-0 at the Showgrounds and will contest the second leg in Norway on Tuesday July 23. Legia Warsaw are in strong position from their first leg encounter with Welsh side The New Saints after triumphing 3-1 at The Racecourse Ground in Wrexham.

Cliftonville or Celtic face a potential tie with Swedish team Elfsborg, who appear to have their place in the next round well wrapped up after a comfortable 7-1 first leg victory over Latvian opponents Daugava Daugavpils.

Tommy Breslin's team suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat at home to the Scottish Premier League champions in the first leg and will play the Bhoys at Celtic Park in the second leg on July 23.

In the Europa League, Derry City will play either Dinamo Minsk or Croatian side Lokomotiva Zagreb in the third qualifying round if they can progress past Turkish opponents Trabzonspor. The Candystripes must overturn a two goal deficit at the Brandywell in the second leg after losing the first leg 4-2.

Linfield, meanwhile, face the prospect of playing Belgian side Standard Liege if they can triumph over Skoda Xanthi. Standard defeated Icelandic outfit KR 3-1 in the first leg of the second qualifying round. The Blues will have the advantage of an away goal when they welcome Xanthi to Windsor Park on July 25 after defeating the Greek outfit 1-0 in the first leg.
