UEFA Cup: First Knockout Round draw

December 15, 2006

Tottenham will take on Feyenoord in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup. The tie, the first leg of which takes place in Rotterdam, will see head coach Martin Jol return to Holland where he had a successful six-year spell with RKC Waalwijk.

Spurs cruised through their UEFA Cup group, finishing a run of four successive victories with a 3-1 win over Dinamo Bucharest last night, whereas Feyenoord only squeezed in behind Blackburn and Nancy.

Blackburn Rovers might not relish their clash with Germans Bayer Leverkusen and will look to make the most of home advantage in the first leg.

Newcastle's reward for topping Group H is a two-legged match against unheralded Belgian side Zulte Waregem, while Rangers travel to Israel first after being drawn against Hapoel Tel Aviv.

Both Newcastle and Rangers have away ties first, with first-leg matches to be played on either February 14 or 15, with the returns on February 22.

The four British clubs also learned which teams they can face should they advance to the last 16.

Tottenham would face the winners of the tie between Braga and Parma, Newcastle would tackle Fenerbahce or AZ Alkmaar, Blackburn would take on Lens or Panathinaikos and Rangers would play either Bordeaux or Osasuna.
