UEL: Athletic face Dinamo Bucharest

Athletic Bilbao will face Romanian side Dinamo Bucharest in the Europa League Third Qualifying Round, following Friday’s draw.

The Basque club - who were defeated in the 2012 final by Atletico Madrid in the Romanian capital – will face the away leg on 27 July before hosting Dinamo at the San Mames the following week.

Athletic finished seventh in La Liga last season, initially not enough for a Europa League place, but qualified for the competition due to Barcelona defeating Alaves in the Copa Del Rey final.

Real Sociedad and Villarreal will provide further Spanish representation in the group stages of the competition, won by Manchester United last season.
