St Johnstone must overturn a 2-0 deficit to progress

St Johnstone could face French giants Marseille in the Europa League third qualifying round, if they can overhaul their 2-0 first-leg deficit against Turkish side Eskisehirspor in the second round of qualifying.

Dundee United enter the competition at the third qualifying stage and they face a tough test against Dynamo Moscow if the are to advance to the play-off round.

St Johnstone lost in Turkey on Wednesday night but now have a huge incentive to win the return leg at McDiarmid Park next week to set up a historic and lucrative tie with nine-time Ligue 1 champions Marseille.
