From UEFA.com:

The stage is set for this Friday's UEFA Champions League play-off draw in Nyon after the third qualifying round concluded with a flurry of goals and penalty excitement.

BSC Young Boys claimed a famous victory in Turkey, a 1-0 win enough to see off a Fenerbahçe SK side forced to play much of the second period with ten men 3-2 on aggregate. Things were more comfortable for SC Braga, FC Dynamo Kyiv and FC Zenit St. Petersburg in the League route – the qualifying path involving non-champions from Europe's top 15 associations – but AFC Ajax endured a nervous finale as they edged past PAOK FC on away goals.

The quintet will be joined in the draw by five newcomers – AJ Auxerre, SV Werder Bremen, UC Sampdoria, Sevilla FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC – though the ten domestic titleholders competing in the Champions route all had to come through qualifying. FC Basel 1893, RSC Anderlecht and FC København all negotiated potentially tricky ties, though in one of the shocks of the round NK Dinamo Zagreb lost 6-5 on penalties to Moldova's FC Sheriff.

Draw format
In both routes teams will be divided into two groups of five for the draw; five seeded and five unseeded in accordance with UEFA club coefficient rankings. The play-offs are played over two legs on 17/18 and 24/25 August. The ten play-off winners will join the 22 automatic entrants in the UEFA Champions League group stage, the draw for which is held in Monaco at 18.00CET on 26 August.

The draw for the UEFA Champions League play-off round was conducted in Nyon on 6 August 2010.

Two-time UEFA Cup winners Sevilla FC face an Iberian derby against SC Braga, who eliminated Celtic FC in their maiden match in Europe's top club competition. That meeting takes place in the League Route while in the Champions Route, Norwegian titleholders Rosenborg BK take on Danish counterparts FC København and old ties will be renewed when Czech side AC Sparta Praha meet Slovakia's MŠK Žilina.

Other eye-catching ties include four-time European Champion Clubs' Cup winners AFC Ajax meeting FC Dynamo Kyiv and SV Werder Bremen taking on 1992 runners-up UC Sampdoria. Tottenham Hotspur FC will make their UEFA Champions League debut against BSC Young Boys, who won 1-0 in Istanbul to knock out Fenerbahçe SK on Wednesday.

The fixtures have already been announced, with the first legs to be held on 17/18 August and the returns a week later. The ten winners will join the 22 automatic entrants in the UEFA Champions League group stage, the draw for which is held in Monaco at 18.00CET on 26 August. The losers will take part in the UEFA Europa League group stage.

Line-up Draw 26 August 2010

Post by NoStyleNoFinesse on Thu Aug 26, 2010 10:29 pm

The lineup is complete for the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League group stage and 32 clubs await the draw at 18.00CET on Thursday at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

Former champions AFC Ajax, returning duo AJ Auxerre and FC København and group-stage newcomers MŠK Žilina and Tottenham Hotspur FC became the final five sides to earn their berths at the conclusion of the play-off round on Wednesday night, all celebrating victories at home. Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC, FC Basel 1893, FK Partizan, SC Braga and SV Werder Bremen had earlier won through in Tuesday's play-off second legs to join the 22 automatic entrants led by holders FC Internazionale Milano.

In all, 18 associations are represented and as well as Tottenham and Žilina, Braga, Hapoel, Bursaspor and FC Twente will be making their group-stage debuts. By contrast, Manchester United FC will be in the draw for a record 16th time out of a possible 19. Only 12 of last year's 32 contenders have qualified again.
