Everton will have to negotiate Croatian opposition in order to qualify for the group stage of the Europa League following today's draw.

The Blues were paired with Hajduk Split who beat Brondby from Denmark 2-0 in aggregate in the Third Qualifying Round last night.

The two legs will be played on 17 August and 24 August respectively, with Everton once again playing at home first.

"Hajduk Split will be a real challenge, with their strong support and a stadium that is good to play football in," Ronald Koeman said on evertonfc.com following the draw.

"But of course we want to reach the group stages of the Europa League, so we will have analysed their strengths and weaknesses between now and the tie and we will be prepared."
