Europa League draw

Martin Jol secured success in his first competitive ties as Fulham boss with a 3-0 aggregate victory over NSI Runavik in the first qualifying round of the Europa League. Fulham, handed a place in the draw via the UEFA Fair Play League, scored all three of their goals in the first leg at Craven Cottage and, with their opponents unable to muster a response, ensured there was no embarrassment against the side from the Faroe Islands. It is, however, a long road to the group stages of the Europa League, with potentially two more qualifying rounds ahead before the play-off stage, and Fulham will next have to see off IFA side Crusaders. FA Cup finalists Stoke will enter in the third round, along with Scottish Premier League side Hearts. Celtic go straight in at the play-off stage with Carling Cup winners Birmingham and Tottenham, who finished fifth in the Premier League. Dundee United will join the competition in the second qualifying round, where they will face Polish outfit Slask Wroclaw. League of Ireland Premier Division side Bohemians will travel to Olimpija Ljubljana for the first match of their second-round qualifier. Llanelli of the Welsh Premier League have a home tie first against Dinamo Tbilisi.

Matchdays:
Second Qualifying Round: July 14 and 21
