British sides set to learn European opponents

A number of big clubs are already involved in the Europa League at an early stage and notable first qualifying round ties include Israeli giants Beitar Jerusalem taking on Hungarian outfit Vasas and Norrokoping taking on Prishtina.

Having played in the top flight of Albanian football for only the past five years, Kukes made history in the Albanian Superliga in late May when they claimed their first Superliga title.

The Champions League qualifying draw begins at 11am in Lyon and will be streamed on UEFA.com; the draw for the first and second rounds of Europa League begin at midday.

RANGERS are in line for a fiery reception from AEL Limassol fans - if they land the Cypriots in the Europa League.

But should they progress into the next round, they could face a tricky trip to Cyprus. The Reds finished second for the second straight year in the Superliga, failing to make a comeback after more than two decades of trophyless seasons. They lost 3-0 on aggregate to Shamrock Rovers in the 2015/16 Europa league.

Niederkorn have failed to win any of their 12 matches in Europe, scoring only once.

Coleraine and Ballymena will both play their first legs away from home on June 29 and will host their Norwegian opponents on July 6.
