Everton hold a slender advantage over MFK Ruzomberok going into Thursday’s second leg in Slovakia.
For long periods Everton struggled to break down their opponents and needed a deflected Leighton Baines to win the first leg.
Ruzomberok eased to a 4-0 win over FK Senica on Sunday in their domestic league, with Dominik Kruzliak scoring twice.
Everton have enjoyed a good transfer window this summer, despite losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
They have added the likes of Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez.
Everton are likely to make one change from the first leg, with Sandro set to come in and lead the line.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will make way from the XI, with Rooney dropping deeper having struggled when starting as the focal point up front.
Expected starting XI’s
Ruzomberok (4-5-1): Macik; Maslo, Maslo, Kruzliak, Kupec; Takac, Qose, Kochan, Daniel, Haskic; Gal-Andrezly
Everton (4-2-3-1): Stekelenburg; Martina, Keane, Williams, Baines; Gueye, Schneiderlin; Mirallas, Rooney, Klaasen; Sandro
