Play-offs: Plovdiv and Strasbourg the potential opponents
Should they make it through the third round, Eintracht will meet either Lokomotiv Plovdiv or Strasbourg in the play-offs for the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.
Monday lunchtime’s draw in Nyon means that Eintracht Frankfurt would face either Lokomotiv Plovdiv from Bulgaria or Racing Strasbourg from France in the final qualifying round for the group stage. The two sides – currently fifth in the A Grupa and reigning French League Cup winners respectively – will face one another in the third round, while at the same time (8 and 15 August) Frankfurt will be taking on FC Vaduz.
Eintracht would play the first leg on Thursday 22 August away from home, before hosting the second leg a week later, on 29 August at 20:30 CEST, at the Commerzbank-Arena.
