Hearts have discovered who they will face in the Europa League play-off round.
Robbie Neilson's men will travel to Switzerland to face FC Zurich for the first leg on Thursday, August 18 following their 3-0 win over Linfield. The Swiss side ran out 2-0 winners in the first leg to take the tie 5-0 on aggregate. The Jambos will now travel for the first game with the match taking place at St Gallen's Kybunpark Stadium - not in Zurich.
The return game will be played the following week under the lights at a packed out Tynecastle with the winner of the two-legged showdown advancing to the Europa League group stages. It is not all doom and gloom for the loser of this one, with a guaranteed spot in the Europa Conference League already in the bag. For Hearts, that means eight games in Europe this season which brings added exposure and wealth to the club as they bid to test themselves against some of Europe's best players and teams.
