Who will Rangers face in the Champions League play-off round if they beat Royale Union?

Rangers are fighting for their first Champions League group stage qualification in over a decade, but they face a tough path to get there.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's team travel away to Belgium for the first leg of their third-round qualifying clash with Royale Union. 

The rematch will take place next week on August 9 at Ibrox as Rangers look to edge closer towards their first Champions League group stage appearance since the 2010/11 campaign. 

Waiting for the Gers in the final qualifying round will be the winners of a mouth-watering clash between Ligue 1's Monaco and Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven.

The French outfit finished third in the league last season and have strengthened over the summer with the signings of Liverpool's Takumi Minamino, Borussia Monchengladbach's Breel Embolo and Cercle Brugge's Thomas Didillon.

PSV, in contrast, were pipped to the Eredivisie crown last season by Ajax who finished two points in-front.

Former Manchester United forward Ruud van Nisterlooy took over from Roger Schmidt as the club's new manager and will be looking to make an immediate impact.

Over the summer, the Eindhoven outfit made a number of additions, including Luuk de Jong from Sevilla and the loan signing of Jarrad Branthwaite from Everton.

In another high-profile draw, the winner of the clash between Dynamo Kiev and Strum Graz will take on either Benfica or Midtjylland.
