Arsenal will face Fenerbahce for a place in the Champions League group stage, the Independent
The Turkish side, along with rivals Besiktas, were initially barred from competing in Europe this season after a match fixing scandal, but pending a hearing which takes place on August 28 – around the time of the second leg – they have been reinstated.
It represents a difficult tie for Arsene Wenger’s side, who qualified for the Champions League for the 16th consecutive season by virtue of a late run to finish fourth in last season’s Premier League, as Fenerbahce reached the Europa League semi-finals in 2012-13. Their squad contains former Premier League players Dirk Kuyt and Raul Meireles.
Celtic, who beat Elfsborg in the third qualifying round 1-0 on aggregate, face a trip to Kazakhstan to take on Shakhter Karagandy, who are aiming to reach the group stage for the first time. In the pick of the other ties, seven-time European champions Milan face PSV Eindhoven, winners in 1988.
The first legs take place on August 20-21, with the second legs a week later.
