The Irish champions will play some big names in their Europa League debut.

After the disappointment of narrowly missing out on the Champions League group stages it will be some consolation to the Lilywhites that they have drawn such big names in the secondary competition.

Dundalk's opponents in Group D will be Zenit St Petersburg, AZ Alkmar and Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will battle Turkish league runners up Fenerbahce, Dutch side Feyenoord and Zorya of Ukraine in Group A.

Southampton, the other Premier League in the competition, also have a tough path to progress as they face Inter Milan, Sparta Prague and Hapoel Beer Sheva in Group K.
