Barcelona To Face Napoli In Europa League Play-off Draw

Spanish giants Barcelona have been drawn against the Italian side, Napoli SC in the play-off of the Europa League.

Barcelona find themselves trying to keep alive their hopes of European football after finishing third in their Champions League group behind Bayern Munich and Benfica.

It is the first time since 2003-04 when Barcelona will not be in the knockout stages of the Champions League, a competition they have won five times.

Napoli, winners of the competition in 1989, progressed from a Europa League group which included Leicester, who they beat 3-2 in the final group game in Naples.

In other draws, Dortmund will take on Rangers, while Sevilla will trade tackle with Dinamo Zagreb.

Italian side, Atalanta will face Olympiakos, while RB Leipzig will play Real Sociedad.
