Hot on the heels of the UEFA Champions League Matchday Three excitement comes the decisive games in the UEFA Cup first round tonight.
Across the spectrum
There are 45 second-leg matches to be completed with teams from across the spectrum of European football - from Anorthosis Famagusta FC to Zalaegerszegi TE - taking part. Tonight's winners will join Hertha BSC Berlin, KS Amica Wronki and FK Austria Wien who are safely in the second round after victories on Tuesday.
Three 6-0 winners
They should be joined by clubs such as FC Porto, who won their first leg 6-0 at home to KP Polonia Warszawa, NK Dinamo Zagreb, also 6-0 home winners against Zalaegerszegi, Celtic FC, who beat FK Suduva 8-1, and FC Girondins de Bordeaux - the third club to win 6-0 - who thrashed ŠKM Púchov.
Israeli in clubs in charge
Hapoel Tel-Aviv, the Israeli club who caused a few surprises in last season's competition by beating Chelsea FC and Parma AC, should also safely make the second round after beating FC Kärnten 4-0 in Austria in the first leg. However, there are a couple of prestigious clubs who have their work cut out tonight. Rangers FC, who will have enviously noted Celtic's first-leg scoreline, have a 2-0 defecit to overcome after losing to FK Viktoria Zizkov and Portugal's Boavista FC who lost 1-0 to Hapoel's neighbours Maccabi Tel-Aviv a fortnight ago.
Among the former UEFA Cup winners in action tonight Italian club Parma are at home to Russia's PFC CSKA Moskva after a 1-1 draw in the first leg. RSC Anderlecht, the 1983 winners, have to turn round a 1-0 deficit when they travel to Stabæk IF of Norway and England's Ipswich Town FC, go to Yugoslavia after being held 1-1 at Portman Road by FK Sartid.
