Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny admits that it's a case of all or nothing as his side prepare to take on Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their final Europa League Group D game.
The Lilywhites travel to Israel knowing that even a victory may not be enough for them to progress to the knockout phase of the competition, although given the right results, a draw could see them through.
Kenny's men have to hope that table toppers Zenit St Petersburg beat AZ Alkmaar in the group's other game. If that were to happen a win or a score draw would be enough for Dundalk to progress.
Any victory for Alkmaar would mean that the Dutch side finish second and move into the last 32.
Zenit have won all of their group games thus far and have already qualified as group winners. However Kenny is taking nothing for granted and insisted that his side will be playing for the win against Maccabi.
"Tomorrow night is a huge opportunity for us. It's not completely in our own hands," he said. "We are not in control of our own destiny because AZ Alkmaar have a home game against Zenit St. Petersburg.
"We must try to beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv who only last year were in the Champions League themselves. We must try to get the win over here in Israel.
"Zenit are a proud team and they won't want to lose a game.They will want to maintain their 100% record in the group. From our point of view we need to focus on Maccabi.
"We have enough to worry about in terms of Maccabi Tel-Aviv. They are a good side and we must focus on them. There isn't a city or a country that we have been in that we haven't scored in."
Kenny has described it as a 'win or nothing' match for him and believes in his troops saying that they have achieved special moments in recent memory they must 'strive to go one further'.
"There is permutations that a score draw could put us through if Zenit win their match but we must not think like that. We can't think like that.
"It's a win or nothing for me and I only see it as a win or nothing game for us. Maccabi are huge favourites with their record. They have been in the Champions League and have 17 international players but we have achieved special things over the last few years and we must strive to go one further."
Kenny has been boosted by the news that his captain Stephen O'Donnell is available after he went off injured in Dundalk's 1-0 defeat to Alkmaar.
Chris Shields is also available after suffering a hamstring injury but Shane Grimes misses out due to his hamstring operation.
