Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 6.30pm BST, with S4C providing live coverage in the UK.


A brace from Wayne Routledge, goals from Michu, Alejandro Pozuelo and an own-goal from Peterson Pecanha gave the Swans a 5-0 lead at the Liberty Stadium last week, before Gheorghe Grozav scored a late consolation for the visitors.

Michael Laudrup's men, however, did suffer a slight setback at the domestic level, losing their first two Premier League matches to defending champions Manchester United and top four contenders Tottenham Hotspur. Petrolul, on the other hand, are unbeaten in the Romanian top flight so fare, with three wins and three draws from their opening six fixtures.

What Players Say

Alejandro Pozuelo: "This is an important game for us, because hopefully I will get another opportunity to show the manager that I can play and be important for the team for the rest of the season."

Leon Britton: "We need or two more players, and yes, maybe a striker. At the moment we only have [Wilfried] Bony up top as an out-and-out [forward]."
