[UEL] Juve travel to Ireland or Israel

Juventus have been drawn against either Shamrock Rovers of Ireland or Bnei Yehuda Tel-Aviv of Israel in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.

UEFA Europa League 2010-11Bnei Yehuda have a 1-1 away-goal advantage over Shamrock going into next Thursday's second qualifying round second leg tie at home.

Juve, seeded for the draw, qualified for the competition by finishing a disappointing seventh in last season's Serie A.

La Vecchia Signora will travel away to Dublin or Tel-Aviv for the first leg on Thursday 29 July, with the home leg in Turin on Thursday 5 August.

Bnei Yehuda qualified for the Europa League tournament by finishing fourth in the Israeli Premier League play-offs, while Shamrock reached this stage by finishing runners up in the League of Ireland Premier Division.

The winners of the 35 third qualifying round encounters will go into the draw for the play-off round on 6 August, with ties on 19 and 26 August. That final qualifying stage will include losing teams from the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round, plus domestic cup winners and other teams from Europe's strongest football nations, including Italy's other two Europa League entrants, Napoli and Palermo.

The winners of the play-off round will then reach the group stage, which will see 48 teams play in 12 four-team groups between September and December before a knockout stage begins next February featuring additional teams from the Champions League group stage.

The final is scheduled to be played in Dublin on Wednesday 18 May, 2011.
