EL: Torino to face Debrecen

Torino will face Hungarian side Debrecen in the Europa League preliminary round, with the first leg on July 25.

The Granata had to wait until this evening’s results to learn the name of their opponent.

Debrecen had beaten Albanians Kukesi 3-0 in the first leg, so tonight’s 1-1 draw sent them through.

Torino will host Debrecen in Alessandria on July 25, then play the second leg in Hungary on August 1.

They are playing their home fixture in Alessandria’s Moccagatta stadium because the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino is hosting a concert on July 17 and won’t be ready in time for the game.

Toro weren’t originally in the Europa League, but stepped in to replace Roma when Milan agreed to an exclusion due to Financial Fair Play issues.
