Inter Milan  welcome Romanian club Vaslui  to the San Siro on Friday morning (AEST), confident of sealing their passage to the group stage of the Europa League having won the first leg of the Europa League playoff between the sides 2-0 last week.

English Premier League clubs Liverpool  and Newcastle United  return to their home grounds with a strong chance of advancing, with the Reds particularly well placed after scoring a 1-0 away to Hearts  last week. Newcastle United returned from Athens with a 1-1 draw against Atromitos  and will be confident of progressing having won 11 of their 19 home matches last season.

Two time UEFA Cup winners Feyenoord  travel to the Czech Republic to face Sparta Praha , while big spending Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala  are away to AZ Alkmaar .
