Fortaleza might be struggling near the foot of the league table in Brazil but they will be looking to keep up their giant killing run in the Copa do Brasil against Fluminense tonight. More details at

M1 Lechia Gdansk vs Rapid Vienna: Since their goalless draw in Vienna last week, Rapid won their opening game of the Austrian season but Lechia lost their first match 3-0 at Wisla Plock.

M2 Dinamo Minsk vs Hapoel Be’er Sheva: Hapoel Be’er Sheva host Minsk twice because of the ban on Belarus clubs hosting European club competition matches. Hapoel won the first leg 2-1.

M3 Sligo Rovers vs Motherwell: Irish club Rovers upset their Scottish hosts with a 1-0 win last week in the first leg of this UEFA Europa Conference League tie.

M4 FC Vaduz vs Koper: Vaduz play in the Swiss second division but represent Liechtenstein in the UEFA Europa Conference League tie. Koper from Slovenia lost at home last weekend in the first leg.

M5 Buducnost vs Breidablik: The visitors from Iceland take a 2-0 lead from the home leg to the return match in Montenegro.

M6 Tuzla City vs AZ Alkmaar: It was an upset result in the Netherlands last week that saw the underdogs from Bosnia restrict their hosts to just a 1-0 win in the first leg of their Europa Conference League tie.

M7 Crusaders vs FC Basel: Basel won 2-0 at home last week in the first leg. Crusaders from Northern Ireland came through the first preliminary round of the UEFA Europa Conference League against Gibraltar’s Magpies.

M8 Puskas Academy vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Vitoria have a handy 3-0 victory over Puskas Academy in last week’s first leg.

M9 Sao Paulo vs America Mineiro: Sao Paulo’s last three games have all been drawn. America won away on Sunday in the league and now look for more away success in the Copa do Brasil.

M10 Fortaleza vs Fluminense: Fortaleza’s home record against Fluminense is two wins, one draw and four defeats but an 11-11 goal aggregate.

Suggested permutation:
