Kazakhstan Or Denmark In Store For Saints Or Lincoln

The draw for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League was made this morning and we now know who The New Saints will face should they advance past Lincoln Red Imps.

Scott Ruscoe’s side will travel to either Kazakhstan to take on FC Astana or Denmark to face FC Midtjylland.

The champions of Astana have reached the group stage of the Champions League for the first time in 2015 and have taken part in the same stage of the Europa League in the last two seasons.

FC Midtjylland faced The New Saints in the second qualifying round of the Europa League in 2011, winning the tie 8-3 on aggregate.

Should The Saints win against the side from Gibraltar, the first leg is expected to be played on August 9th, before the second leg a week later on August 16th.
