Draw made for the Europa League play-off round

Sporting Anderlecht, AA Gent and Racing Genk now know there opponents in the play-off round for a place in this season’s UEFA Europa League. None of our teams will have to travel too far with Sporting Anderlecht taking on a Czech team, AA Gent taking on Macedonian opposition and Racing Genk off to Croatia for the away leg of their play-off round tie.

Sporting Anderlecht saw their Champions League dreams shattered on Wednesday evening. Nevertheless, the club that finished second in the Belgian First Division last year still can qualify for the Europa League. However, they will have to beat the Czech side Slavia Prague over two legs in order to do so.

Already having survived two qualifying rounds, last season’s Play-Off II winners Racing Genk will face Locomotive Zagreb for a place in the Europa League.

The team that finished third in the Belgian First Division last season AA Gent will play the Macedonian side Shkëndija. Shkëndija won last season’s Macedonian Cup.
