Partizan are regulars at this level and had qualified for the group stage on numerous occasions. Last season, they reached the first knockout round before losing out to Plzen.
The Serbians have a poor record while playing away from home and a narrow 1-0 lead from first leg set the stage for a tight affair on Thursday.
