The return games will be played one week from the first legs, on Wednesday, February 24 for Tottenham Hotspur and the Austrians of Wolfsberg, and on Thursday, February 25 for all remaining teams. Here, too, the return games will be the key to success for our Belgian teams.

That Thursday, RAFC travels to Glasgow with hopes of having a lead before hitting the pitch at 6.p.m. Later on, Club Bruges will host its Ukrainian rival at the Jan Breydel stadium for the return leg. If there’s any chance either of the Belgian teams make it to the next round, this could be the game to win.
