Victory over Copenhagen would mean entry into the 4th Qualifying Round and defeat at that stage would see automatic inclusion in the Europa League Groups. However firstly the Hoops have the somewhat difficult task of overcoming the Danish Champions, a team that progressed to the Second Round of the Champions League last year and have a strong pedigree in Europe in recent years.
Shamrock Rovers will go into the game without the injured Karl Sheppard (ankle) whilst Chris Turner is suspended for the game. Stephen O'Donnell will face a late fitness test and is the only doubt. Having squared up to Juventus last season, the Tallaght based side and manager Michael O'Neill know what is needed.
"Preparation has been going well and we're all looking forward to the game. We know it will be a big challenge for us facing Copenhagen, but we are ready to face it", said O'Neill.
