St Johnstone will face Danish side Randers in the UEFA Europa League play-off round – if they beat Galatasaray over the next fortnight.

The Perthshire Scottish Premiership club will contest the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round match against the Turkish giants away from home on Thursday. Randers – who sit top of the Danish Superligaen after three matches – await the winner of the match.

Galatasaray are strong favourites to progress to the play-off round of the Europa League.

Even if St Johnstone lose the tie, they will drop into the Europa Conference League play-off round, which will be drawn later this afternoon.

Callum Davidson’s side are in European competition this season after a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double last season. St Johnstone finished fifth in the Premiership last season and opened their 21/22 season with a 0-0 draw against Ross County.
