This will be the ninth time in 10 years the Welsh side have competed in the Champions League but they have never got as close to a European group stage as they did a few years ago, when failing at the final hurdle in pursuit of a Europa League group stage place.
Feronikeli have already had a dramatic passage to this stage, they had to play a preliminary round of matches against teams from San Marino, Andorra and and Gibralter to get to the first qualifying round and they picked up decent wins against Lincoln Red Imps (who once beat Celtic) and FC Santa Coloma.
The New Saints almost pulled off a remarkable comeback in this competition last season, losing the first leg 5-0 before winning 4-0 at home, however, they bowed out of qualifying at the first stage so will be looking for better this time around.
Even though they don’t have the best of form in the Champions League, we’re predicting a TNS victory here as they look to take a vital first leg lead to Kosovo for the return. This will be the Kosovan’s sides first every appearnce in the Champions League qualifying proper and the occasion might just get to them, even at such a small venue.
It won’t be plain sailing for TNS though so a close game could be in store and that makes a bet on a 2-1 TNS victory quite appealing.
