In the second qualifying round, the Irish champions twice drew against the Icelandic club Hafnarfjordur 1:1 (home) and 2:2 (away) and entered the third qualifying round thanks to the higher aggregate number of away goals. The Borisov club beat Finnish Seinäjoki 2:0 (home) and drew 2:2 (away).

In 2015, BATE and Dundalk met in the 2nd qualifying round and the Borisov team won 2:1 (home, watch the video) and 0:0 (away).

The first match will take place in Borisov on 26 July at Borisov Arena (beginning at 21.00). The return match will be held in Dundalk on August 2 (22.00).
