thumbnail Hello,

Andrea Stramaccioni's men will face a trip to either Croatia or Latvia, as Marseille lie in wait for either Eskisehirspor or St Johnstone

Inter will have to beat either Hjajuk Split or Skonto if they are to qualify for the next round of the preliminary Europa League fixtures.

Despite a late-season surge in form, Andrea Stramaccioni's men were unable to finish higher than sixth in Serie A, and so face a campaign in Europe's second competition.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will face either Maceonian side FK Renova or Belarusian side FC Gomel away from home in the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round fixture.

Dundee United have be drawn at home to Russian side Dynamo Moscow, while fellow Scots St Johnstone could face Marseille at home if they can negotiate a way past Eskisehirspor.

Last season's beaten finalists Athletic Bilbao have been handed a home tie to open their European adventure with against either Slaven Koprivnica or Northern Irish side Portadown.

The knock-on effect was that Tottenham essentially entered the group stages of the tournament under the status of previous winners, while Newcastle are now forced to qualify at the play-off round.

The draw in full:

FK Renova or FC Gomel v      Liverpool
Dundee United v Dynamo Moscow
St Johnstone or Eskisehirspor v Marseille
Inter v Hajduk Split or Skonto
Athletic Bilbao v Slaven Koprivnica or Portadown
Steaua Bucharest v Sligo Rovers or Spartak Trnava
Servette or Gandzasar Kapan v Rosenborg or Ordabasy
Sikori Brijeg or Saint Patrick v Hannover
Anzhi or Budapest Honved v Lokomotiv Plodiv or Vitesse
