Famously beating Anderlecht on penalties in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final, we last faced the Belgian side in a UEFA Cup group stage tie in December 2011 – the match ending 1-1 with Dimitar Berbatov on target for us from the spot.
Our most recent meeting with another of Berba’s former clubs, Monaco, was in August, 2013, as we travelled to Stade Louis II for a pre-season friendly. Harry Kane and Andros Townsend were our scorers as the hosts won 5-2.
We have never previously faced Qarabağ FK. They are based in Baku, Azerbaijan, and ply their trade in the Azerbaijan Premier League.
The draw for the group stage of this season’s Europa League took place on Friday lunchtime in Monaco.
We will face each team in the group at home and away.
