Stephen Kenny was the man in charge at Rovers when the Hoops last played in the Champions League qualifiers. 

There was no backdoor route into the Europa League in 2012 and so when Rovers lost 2-1 on aggregate to Lithuanian side Ekranas they were out of Europe at the first hurdle compared with playing a dozen games the previous season when they qualified for the Europa League group stages.

Like Shamrock Rovers, Slovan qualified for the Europa League groups stages for the first time in 2011. 

They beat Roma en-route to the groups stages where, like Rovers, they finished bottom of their group. 

Graham Burke is the joint all-time top goalscorer for Shamrock Rovers in Europe with four goals alongside Liam Tuohy and Billy Dixon. 

Dixon scored six goals in Europe including two with Drumcondra. Pico Lopes is just one goal further back from Burke's tally.
