LIVERPOOL will face FC Gomel in the Europa League third qualifying round after the Belarusian side completed a 2-1 aggregate victory over FK Renova of Macedonia.

Gomel lost tonight’s second qualifying round second leg 1-0 at home to Renova following a 56th-minute goal from Ersen Asani but their 2-0 lead from the first leg ultimately proved enough to send them through to a clash with five-time European champions Liverpool.

The first leg, which will be the first competitive game in charge of Liverpool for new manager Brendan Rodgers, will take place in Gomel on August 2, with the return match being played at Anfield on August 9.
