Shakhtyor Soligorsk will host Ludogorets at the Stadion Banovom brdu in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League qualifier on Tuesday.
The home side suffered a 1-0 reversal in the first leg last week. Cauly Oliveira-Souza scored the game-winning goal for Ludogorets in the second minute of injury time.
That goal leaves it all to play for in the second leg and both sides are still in with a shout at progressing to the second round of the qualifiers.
The winner of this tie will face either Shkëndija or Mura in the next round of the qualifiers.
