Zenit St.Petersburg will open their UEFA Champions League campaign against AEL Limassol following the draw for the third qualifying round made in Nyon, Switzerland. Andre Villas-Boas's Zenit advanced to the round of 16 last season, while Cypriot side AEL last reached the group stage in 2012/13 season.
FC Copenhagen were drawn against Ukrainian side FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, who are back in the competition after a 25-year absence. There will also be a first meeting of Dutch side Feyenoord and Turkey's Besiktas and Swiss outfit Grasshopper Zurich and Ligue 1 side Lille.
"Avoiding long journeys is always better," said Lille coach Rene Girard, whose side finished third in Ligue 1 last season. But that doesn't mean it will be easy, quite the contrary. This is a reference team in Switzerland so we have a lot of respect for them. It will be good for Lille. It will not be easy, but with games like this we grow."
In the champions route, 2011/12 quarter-finalists APOEL FC open against FK Rabotnicki or Helsinki, and two-time group stage participants Aalborg BK were drawn with GNK Dinamo Zagreb or VMFD Zalgiris. The third qualifying round takes place over two legs on 29/30 July and 5/6 August.
The 15 qualifiers from this round advance to the play-offs where they will be up against Arsenal, FC Porto, Bayer Leverkusen, Napoli and Athletic Bilbao.
