Burnley or Aberdeen will face Turkish side İstanbul Başakşehir in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.

The draw for the next stage of the competition was made at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, pairing the winners of the second qualifying round tie - of which the first leg is played at Pittodrie on Thursday night, with the return at Turf Moor the following Thursday - with the Turkish club, who were only formed in 1990.

İstanbul Başakşehir boast a number of familiar names, including former Arsenal and Manchester City pair Gael Clichy, and Emmanuel Adebayor, as well as Gokhan Inler, former Barcelona man Arda Turan, Dutch international Eljero Elia and Kerim Frei.

The third qualifying round first leg will be away from home on Thursday, August 9th, with the return on the 16th.
