Permutations related to tonight’s game.

A win for Shamrock Rovers tonight would see them advance to the Europa League play-off qualifying rounds against losers Ferencvaros of Hungary and Karabag of Azerbaijan. If Rovers lose that draw, they fall into the group phase of the third-tier conference league, so a win tonight would somehow guarantee group stage qualification.

If they get knocked out tonight by Shkupi, they’ll be in the playoff rounds of the Conference League awaiting Stephen Bradley’s team.
