Midtjylland and Brøndby will face off against Southhampton and PAOK respectively.
Danish champions Midtjylland have been drawn against English Premier League side Southampton in the play-offs for the Europa League as the draw was made on Friday.
 
Southampton's reward for beating Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem 5-0 on aggregate in the third qualifying round is a meeting with a Mdtjylland side who lost on away goals to APOEL of Cyprus in the Champions League third qualifying round.
 
Meanwhile, Brøndby will have to travel to Greece in order to qualify. The suburban Copenhagen club will face off against PAOK Saloniki.
 
In other matchups, Borussia Dortmund have been paired with Odds of Norway, while Ajax will take on Jablonec of the Czech Republic after being dumped out of the Champions League third qualifying round by Rapid Vienna.
 
Fenerbahce, who have invested big money this summer luring the likes of Robin van Persie, Nani and Simon Kjaer to Istanbul only to be beaten by Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League third qualifying round, will meet Atromitos of Greece.
 
The winners will join the 10 losers from the Champions League play-offs and 16 other sides who qualify directly -- including Villarreal, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Schalke 04, Fiorentina, Napoli and Marseille - in the group stage draw.
