Tottenham Hotspur have been paired with Swiss side Young Boys in the draw for the Champions League play-off round.

With a place in the lucrative group stage on the line, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp will be pleased to have avoided the likes of Sampdoria and Dynamo Kyiv.

Young Boys reached the play-off round with a surprise 3-2 aggregate success against Turkish powerhouses Fenerbahce, having drawn the home first leg of the third qualifying round 2-2.

A goal from Henri Bienvenu then proved crucial in the return leg and sent Vladimir Petkovic's side, who finished second in the Swiss league last season, through to a meeting with Spurs.

Draw:

Salzburg v Hapoel Tel-Aviv.

Rosenborg v FC Copenhagen.

Basel v FC Sheriff.

Sparta Prague v MSK Zilina.

FK Partizan v Anderlecht.

Young Boys v Tottenham Hotspur.

Sporting Braga v Sevilla.

Werder Bremen v Sampdoria.

Zenit St Petersburg v Auxerre.

Dynamo Kyiv v Ajax.
