FC Viktoria Plzeň will head into their play-off second leg at NK Maribor with a two-goal advantage over their Slovenian counterparts after a late Michal Ďuriš strike swung the tie strongly in their favour. 

The 2011/12 UEFA Champions League group stage contenders looked well placed when defender Marián Čišovský hit his fifth goal in qualifying in the eighth minute and Vladimír Darida doubled the advantage after the interval. Ante Čačić's men kept themselves in the contest courtesy of Aleš Mejač's beautifully struck away goal, but the two-goal lead was restored as substitute Ďuriš scored in the 89th minute.
