NYON, Switzerland (AP) - Italian giant Inter Milan will play European debutant Stjarnan for a place in the Europa League group stage.

In the playoffs draw Friday, three-time competition winner Inter was sent to Iceland for the first-leg match on Aug. 21. The pairing puts the No. 23 team in UEFA’s club rankings against No. 422.

Still, Inter won’t begin its Serie A season until after the Aug. 28 second leg, while Stjarnan is unbeaten in Iceland’s league which started in May.

Tottenham, twice a UEFA Cup champion, was drawn against AEL Limassol of Cyprus.

Also, it was: PSV Eindhoven vs. Shakhtyor Soligorsk of Belarus; Real Sociedad vs. Krasnodar of Russia; Astana vs. Villareal; Lokeren vs. Hull.

Legia Warsaw was drawn away to Kazakhstan’s Aktobe after losing its Champions League place Friday for fielding an ineligible player.
