Swansea City are drawn to face Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti in the Europa League playoff round.

Swansea City have been drawn to face Romanian side Petrolul Ploiesti in the Europa League playoff round.

Michael Laudrup's side will continue their European adventure at the Liberty Stadium, with home advantage in the first leg on August 23.

The Swans then face a decisive trip to Romania in the return leg on August 30, with a place in the Europa League group stages at stake for both teams.

Ploiesti won the Cupa Romaniei to earn their place in Europe this season, while claiming the notable scalp of Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in the last qualifying round to progress.

Laudrup's side eased into the playoff stages with a 4-0 aggregate victory over Malmo, which was rounded off by a 0-0 draw in Sweden last night.
