Burnley avoid Sevilla, Besiktas with Europa League seed

Burnley are set to be a seeded team for the Europa League second qualifying round draw.

The Clarets will find out their opponents on June 20 when the teams are drawn at FIFA headquarters in Switzerland.

By being seeded, Sean Dyche's side will avoid the likes of Sevilla, Besiktas, RB Leipzig and Atalanta.

And if Burnley win their second qualifying round tie, they will be seeded in the third qualifying round. This means they'll avoid Zenit St. Petersburg, Braga and Feyenoord.

Scottish trio Aberdeen, Hibernian or Rangers could be a possibility in the second round, should the two latter teams progress through the first round of qualifying.
