Bohemians have already banked €550,000 from their success in the competition of which €250,000 was for qualifying originally and they will bank a further €300,000 if they can overcome the club from Luxembourg who have form in Europe in recent years.

They made it to the UEFA Europa League group stage in the 2018/19 season and faced AC Milan, Olympiakos, and Real Betis.

If the Dubliners progress they have a tough tie against Greek club PAOK in the third round after which there is a play-off round to reach the group stage of UEFA's new club competition.

Meanwhile, Dundalk start their second-round tie against Estonian league leaders Levadia Tallinn in the hope they will reach the next round and a date with Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem.

After being knocked out of the Champions League in the first qualifying round, Shamrock Rovers dropped into the third round of the Europa Conference League where they await the winners of the second round tie between Teuta from Albania or Inter Club d'Escaldes.
