August 6, 2010

Tottenham's Champions League journey begins against Swiss side Young Boys, who beat Turkish giants Fenerbahce in the previous round to book their place in the play-off.

• Redknapp wary of Young Boys date

However, Harry Redknapp and company will be buoyed by the fact that, after leading the Swiss League by 13 points in September, Young Boys lost the title as Basel overcame them 2-0 on the final day of the season. They have also failed to win any of their opening three games this year.

Elsewhere, there are some intriguing ties as Zenit St Petersburg meet Auxerre, Ajax take on Dynamo Kiev and Partizan Belgrade face Anderlecht.

The two sides of the draw are split into Champions - which is self-explanatory - and League, which means the teams qualified through their league position.

Ties to be played August 17, 18 and 24, 25.
