Litex against BATE Borisov at the doorstep of Europa League
The bearer of the Cup of Bulgaria Litex will face the nightmare of Levski FC from last year – Bate (Borisov) in the playoffs at the doorstep of the Europa League. This was determined at today’s draw in Nyon. The other possible rivals of the team from Lovech were Aktobe (Kazakhstan), PAOK, Harts and Sigma (Olomouc).
The first match will take place in Belarus on August 20th, and the second – in Lovech on August 27th.
The “orange” team begin their participation in the tournament from this phase, because the last bearer of the Cup of UEFA FC Shakhtar (Donetsk) participates in the Champions league and thus frees one spot in the tournament schedule.
