Hearts and Motherwell have learned their potential opponents in the Europa League with the possibility of glamour ties for both clubs.

Following last night's third qualifying round matches, the seedings and groupings for today's draw have been finalised, reducing the number of potential opponents for Scottish sides.

Scottish Cup winners Hearts have been placed in draw group 2 and could face one of five teams. English Premier League side Liverpool would be the most high-profile opponents but the Gorgie club could also face last year's finalists Athletic Bilbao.

Club Brugges are in the same group,alongside Heerenveen and either Anorthosis Famagusta or Georgian side Dila Gori. UEFA are currently investigating events at the second leg between Anorthosis and Dila Gori after crowd trouble forced the abandonment of the match.

Motherwell face some equally tough ties. Sporting Lisbon are the top side in the group but Bordeaux, Hapoel tel-Aviv, Levante and Sparta Prague are also possible opponents.

The draw for the Europa League play-off round takes place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon at 12.30pm UK time and STV will be providing live coverage.
