The Romanian side head to the Liberty Stadium for the first leg of their play-off to face a Swansea team who overwhelmed Malmo 4-0 at home in the previous round.

And the Swans left-back is relishing the chance for a repeat performance.

"When we played Malmo, we had a real taste of Europe," said Taylor.

"It was the perfect result in the first leg. If we can do that again, then that would be great.

"Hopefully we can do the business in these next two games and get ourselves to where we want to be and that's the group stages.

"The key thing is not to concede at home because if we did, then that would put us under a little bit of pressure when we go there.

"Hopefully we can get through and if we do, then the games will come thick and fast in the group stage along with the Premier League and domestic cups.

"Obviously the result (against Manchester United) wasn't great for us, even though we were the better team in the opening 35 minutes.

"But you have to move on from wins, losses and draws pretty quickly, and this match gives us the opportunity to do that."
