The National football stadium in Slovakia plays host to Wednesday’s Champions League second qualifying round tie between Slovan Bratislava and BSC Young Boys, overseen by English referee Chris Kavanagh.

The hosts advanced to this stage courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate victory over Shamrock Rovers, while Young Boys enter at this round courtesy of their Swiss Super League success last term.

Slovan Bratislava will be parading Nigerian duo of Rabiu Ibrahim and Ezekiel Henty.

Bratislava manager Vladimir Weiss has a few absentees to contend with for the first leg, as Michal Sulla’s illness guarantees another start for Adrian Chovan in between the sticks.

Lucas Lovat, Erik Daniel and David Holman are all nursing injuries in the treatment room, but changes may still be afoot after Shamrock Rovers gave the hosts quite a scare in Dublin.

Weiss’s introduction for the second leg paid dividends and he should not be dropped by his father, but Ezekiel Henty failed to fire over the course of 180 minutes and could be sacrificed for a midfielder in Ibrahim Rabiu.
