Anzhi – Vitesse

Anzhi have seen huge investment over recent seasons and have attracted Guus Hiddink into the managerial hotseat and boast Samuel Eto’o up front. European success will be high on their agenda. Vitesse sneaked through to the 3rd round after a chaotic 4-4 draw with Lokototic Plovdiv. Meanwhile, Anzhi where dismantling Honved 5-0 on aggregate. That latter result gives some useful form lines and a home win looks a formality.

Hajduk Split – Inter

The Croatian side came through after a tight tie with Czech side Skonto (2-1 on aggregate) and showed little sign of having the ability to trouble an Inter side ranked 7 by UEFA. While the italians may be a little under prepared, they should still have too much for Split, and are unlikely take too many chances with selection in the away leg.

St Patricks Athletic – Hannover 96

The Irish side squeezed through on goal difference against Icelandic minnows IBV in round 2. It was a superb result for St Patricks, but they now face the might of the 7th best side in the Bundesliga and have to step up in class – a lot. Take the German side to progress.
