Our second Europa campaign edges closer.

So the final countdown is near – we are only a couple of days away from our first leg tie v FC Differdange 03 from Luxembourg.

Our opponents qualified after winning the Luxembourg Cup winners and finishing second in their league respectively.

A couple of players to look out for are Mathias Janisch who has 36 caps for Luxembourg and plays in midfield, Gilles Bettmer who has 50 Luxembourg caps to his name and forward Omar Er Rafik who was the Club’s top goalscorer last season.

Like the Lakesiders their colours are red, black and white and have recently played Levadia Tallinn like Town did two years ago.

Town are travelling with no fresh injury doubts with everyone up for selection.

It will be essential for the Lakesiders to secure a heartening result to bring back with them to Wales next week for the second leg tie at Rhyl with a potential second round tie v Trabzonspor waiting for the winners.

Around 60 Town supporters are expected to make the trip to Differdange with an allocation of 100 tickets given.

Kickoff 7.00p.m. (local time) at Stade Muncipal de la Ville de Differdange, Luxembourg on Thursday evening

We will be keeping you up to date with all the goings on in Luxembourg as much as possible. Please tune in to our twitter and facebook pages for a live match feed.
