Shamrock Rovers will face Slovan Bratislava in the first qualifying round of the Champions League in July.

The SSE Airtricity League Premier Division champions knew before Tuesday's draw they would face one of Legia Warsaw, Malmo, Slovan Bratislava or Lincoln Red Imps.

Slovan have a perfect record against Irish sides with wins over St. Patrick's Athletic, UCD and more recently Dundalk.

The Slovakian champions beat Dundalk 4-1 on aggregate in the third qualifying round of the Europa League in 2019 before going on to reach the group stage of the competition.

The first leg will take place on July 6th/7th, with the return game at Tallaght Stadium on July 13th/14th.
