Flood gates opened at Orhei last Thursday when these two met, but Slovan Bratislava bagged a crucial away win by a 4-2 margin.
The Slovakian club were always favorite to win this tie over the two legs, but a win of this magnitude in the first leg was hardly expected.
Nevertheless, they have one foot in the next round and they must safely cross the hurdle if they manage to keep the concentration levels high at their own backyard.
For Milsami Orhei, the chance is gone and this is be an uphill task and they will be down on confidence after failing to win an away game at the qualifiers.

Slovan Bratislava vs Milsami Orhei Match Preview
The quality side in this contest is Slovan Bratislava and they showed it in the first leg win. However, the rustiness of not being in competitive action was evident as they ended up conceding 2 goals in return. It was Slovan’s first competitive game in two months.
Milsami are midway through their domestic league season and have a fit side at the disposal. Besides, they are enjoying an impressive run in the top flight of the Moldovan football.
However, Milsami lack the experience of playing strong matches at this level. Nevertheless, the team led by Veaceslav Rusnac had a dreadful European adventure last year when they were eliminated by Fola Esch of Luxembourg 3-2 on aggregate.
The Moldavian outfit had lost four and drew two of last six Europa League fixtures and they are yet to register a win on the road.
