The Citizens are now neck-to-neck to qualify for the second round of the Champions League. Dudelange are expected to provide stiff competition as the Luxembourg side have shown remarkable progress in recent years when it comes to European football.
Last season, after bowing from the first qualifying round of the Champions League to Vidi, they dropped to the Europa League and managed to go all the way to the group stages of UEFA’s secondary competition knocking out the likes of Legia Warsaw, and CFR Cluj.
The winner of the Valletta/Dudelange match will progress to a second-round meeting with either Ferencvaros, of Hungary, or Bulgarians Ludogorets.
