If they get past Stjarnan, the Hoops will face FK Mlada Boleslav from the Czech Republic in the second qualifying round.

Elsewhere, Cork City were handed a favourable first qualifier against Estonian side Levadia Tallinn, and will meet AEL Larnaca from Cyprus or Lincoln from Gibraltar in the next qualifying round, if they progress.

And Derry City have been drawn against FC Midtjylland of Denmark.

If they get through that, either Ferencváros from Hungary or FK Jelgava from Latvia will be Derry's opponent in the next qualifying round.

Dundalk, meanwhile, will meet Norwegian champions Rosenborg in the Champions League second qualifying round.

Celtic will meet either Belfast's Linfield or La Fiorita of San Marino.
