St Joseph's' local rivals, Europa, beat Sant Julia 6-3 on aggregate to secure a home meeting with Legia Warsaw in their next qualifier next Thursday.

The Victoria stadium is the only arena in Gibraltar suitable for European matches and thus St Joseph's, who finished behind Europa and Lincoln Red Imps in the league last season, have to move their fixture against the Light Blues forward two days.

The return leg will be at Ibrox on Thursday, July 18 with a 7.45pm kick off.
