Saints and Midtjylland Learn Europa League Fate

The New Saints or FC Midtjylland will face the losers of the UEFA Champions League tie between Swedish champions Malmö and Hungarian champions Videoton, in the playoff round of the UEFA Europa League.

With the draw being made earlier today, Scott Ruscoe’s side now have a better idea of where they will be heading, should they advance past the champions of Denmark.

Malmö have reached this stage courtesy of wins over both Drita of Kosovo and CFR Cluj of Romania.

Videoton have defeated Luxembourg’s Dudelange and Bulgaria’s Ludogorets Razgrad along the way.

TNS faced Videoton in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League in 2015, losing 2-1 on aggregate after extra-time.

The potential tie would be played on August 23rd and August 30th, with the first leg being played away from home.
