August 5, 2011

Tottenham have landed Scottish side Hearts in the play-off round of the Europa League, while Fulham's Martin Jol will take on the man who replaced him at Spurs, Juande Ramos, who is now in charge of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has already insisted that he will not play his top stars in the competition, preferring instead to focus on the Premier League, but Jol will need no extra motivation to overcome Ramos even though he also maintained that Fulham's league form would be hurt by a good run in Europe.

Meanwhile, Stoke have a tough Swiss test in the shape of FC Thun, while Birmingham take on CD Nacional.

The tie of the round outside the British teams is former UEFA Cup champions Sevilla taking on Hannover 96 from Germany, while newly rich PSG's opponents, Greek side Olympiakos Volou, have been thrown out of the tournament after a match-fixing row.

Ties to be played August 17 and 24.
