Hibs Have Potential Glamour Tie v Zenit If They Can Beat Molde

Hibs have a potential glamour tie against Zenit if they can beat Molde in Europa League qualifying.

Neil Lennon’s booked their place in the third round after beating Asteras Tripolis last week.

They had to come through a tie with NSI Runavik in the first round before dumping the Greeks 4-3 on aggregate over two very entertaining games.

Now, Hibs have to beat Molde to hold on to their dreams of making the group stages – and, if they do, they now know that they could face either Zenit or Dinamo Minsk in the playoffs:

Zenit is the glamour tie given they have an expensively assembled squad and have been a regular in the Champions League and Europa League over the last 10 years.

They’ve got history with Scottish teams too, beating Rangers in the 2008 UEFA Cup Final and beating Celtic in the Europa League last 16 last season.

Hibs face Molde in the first leg of their tie on Thursday night at Easter Road.
