In the Champions League’s first qualifying round, Linfield will meet Lithuanian champions Zalgiris Vilnius.

The Irish Premiership champions will play in the first leg on the 6th or 7th of July, with the return match on the 13th or 14th of July at Windsor Park.

Shamrock Rovers, the League of Ireland champions, will face Slovan Bratislava of Slovakia.

Linfield has never faced a Lithuanian opponent previously.


When the Europa Conference League draw takes place at 12:30 BST on Tuesday, Coleraine, Glentoran, and Larne will learn their opponents for the first qualifying round.

Last year, Linfield lost 1-0 to Legia Warsaw in the first qualifying round of the Champions League, in a one-leg tie.
