The 1-0 win by Everton in the home leg of this qualifying round gives them a huge advantage as they enter the away leg. It means that any win or draw earns them a spot in the next round. The Blues can also advance with a loss as long as it is only by one goal and Everton score at least one goal themselves. A 1-0 win by Ružomberok would result in extra time and possibly penalties.
Finding a good way to watch these early Europa League games can be tough for non-UK Evertonians. We won’t link to them here, but there are certainly some less “ethical” streams around the web. You just have to search a little.
