There are only two qualifiers taking place on Tuesday but both are significant as Motherwell make their Champions League debut and Dutch giants Feyenoord return after a decade-long absence...
Motherwell v Panathinaikos (19:45, Match odds: Motherwell 5.14/1, Panathinaikos 1.875/6, The Draw 3.65)
If there is one good thing to come from the crisis which has seen one of Britain's greatest clubs drop three divisions and threatens to hasten the demise of Scottish football, it is this - Motherwell being given the almost certainly one-off opportunity to test themselves in Europe's elite competition.
They might have hoped for a kinder draw to boost their chances of obtaining an even more lucrative and glamorous final qualifier - though Dinamo Kiev, Fenerbahce and Copenhagen would have been similarly if not more difficult - but they shouldn't be completely outclassed by the Greek runners-up.
Stuart McCall's side have more recent continental experience that you would suspect, and not all of it bad either. They have spent three of the last four seasons in the Europa League, getting through two rounds of qualifiers on the past two occasions.
A dismal record of one point and just two goals in eight clashes with the Old Firm clubs last term doesn't inspire huge faith in their big-match capability, however they tend to specialise in starting campaigns strongly.
Additionally, Panathinaikos' aura has faded since reaching the last 16 in 2008/09. A year ago they lost to unfancied Odense in the qualifiers then went straight out of the Europa League to Maccabi Tel-Aviv. The season before, they gained automatic entry into the Champions League group stage and exited with only two points.
So while the Steelmen are unlikely to find a way through the tie, they are far from guaranteed to be beaten in the home leg.
Best Bet: Lay Panathinaikos to win @ 1.8810/11
Dinamo Kiev v Feyenoord (18:00, Match odds: Dinamo Kiev 1.635/8, Feyenoord 6.611/2, The Draw 4.1)
Ronald Koeman's hectic 13-year coaching career has featured as many lows as highs yet his feat in guiding cash-strapped Feyenoord to second in the Eredivisie was among his finest and presents a chance to become the first boss to manage six different sides in the Champions League group stage.
Dinamo Kiev are favourites, though they have won only two of their last six European home games and are up against a team who tend to thrive as underdogs, averaging as many points per match against top-half opponents as bottom-half ones in the Eredivisie in 2011/12.
Best Bet: Lay Dinamo Kiev to win @ 1.645/8
