By Simon Griver, June 29, 2012

Hapoel Kiryat Shmona have been drawn against Slovakian champions MSK Zilina in the second qualifying round of the Champions League.

The Israelis will travel to Slovakia for the first leg on July 17/18, with the return leg the following week.

Kiryat Shmona’s new manager Gili Landau said: “This is a reasonable draw against a team with a lot of European experience."

In the Europa League second qualifying round, Maccabi Netanya will host Llanelli or Finland’s Kuopio, while Bnei Yehuda will play Rudar Pljevija of Montenegro or Shirak of Armenia.
