Last year's Champions League winner, Liverpool, has the clearest chance of advancing to the second round, after beating the Welsh team with 3:0 in the first leg. FBK Kaunas is also expected to come out victorious, after winning 4 - 2 away. Havnar Bóltfelag would need to win with at least 3 goals difference, unless they score more then 4 goals, when they could get by with 2 goals advantage in the second leg.
