It ended 1-1 when the teams met at Soligorsk last week. The Polish side Lech Poznan have a much better team than their opponents from Belarus and started the double legged tie as clear favorites.

After not making the best of chances in the first leg, the Poles must kill the tie in the second leg at their home ground.

They now sit at home after the 1-1 away draw at Shakhtyor Soligorsk chasing the third round building on the success with a 1-2 win over Wisla Plock.

Shakhtyor Soligorsk will be no easy rivals to beat, though, and they come into the match in great shape on the back of a three-game winning streak – where they beat Connah’s Quay twice and Dinamo Brest in the Belarus Premier League.
