Paphos had a relatively good draw in the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League. If it manages to overcome the obstacle of Ellsborg, the Paphian team will face the winner of the pair Sherif Tiraspol – Zira.

The first match will be played in Moldova or Azerbaijan and the return match in Cyprus. The matches of the 2nd qualifying round of the Europa League are scheduled for 25/7 and 1/8.

The Moldova team is the clear favorite of the pair against Zira. Sheriff Tiraspol finished 2nd in the Moldovan league but secured a ticket to the Europa League as Petrocube (prospect APOEL's rival) did the double. It competes in the “Sheriff Main Arena” with a capacity of 12,746, while on its bench is the 47-year-old Ukrainian Yuri Hura.

Zira returns to Europe after 6 years. In last year's championship of Azerbaijan they finished in 2nd place behind Karabakh. On the bench of the team is the 43-year-old Azeri Rashad Sandigov, while its headquarters is the “Zira Olympic Sport Complex Stadium”, with a capacity of 1500 seats. Possibly, he will have to change his seat for the European games.
