Swansea City could face Hibernian in a ‘Battle of Britain’ third qualifying round tie in the 2013-14 Europa League.

The Welsh club start earlier in Europe’s secondary club competition than England’s other representatives, Tottenham Hotspur and Wigan Athletic, as they gained entry via their Carling Cup victory and are 100/1 with bookmaker Paddy Power to lift the trophy.

Their first opponents will be either Scottish Cup runners-up Hibs or the Swedish club Malmo, who famously reached the 1979 European Cup Final when they were beaten 1-0 by a Trevor Francis far-post header for Nottingham Forest.

That tie will be resolved on Thursday July 25 at Easter Road, where Pat Fenlon’s side must overcome a 2-0 deficit.

Two other Scottish clubs are also in the third qualifying round draw and St Johnstone will be happier with their next opponents from a football perspective, provided they progress to this stage.

Saints enjoyed a superb 1-0 win away to former Champions League quarter-finalists Rosenborg and if they can finish the job at home, they will face either FC Minsk of Belarus or Valletta, who drew 1-1 in the Maltese capital, in the next round.

However, it looks tougher for Motherwell as they will be up against Russian side Kuban Krasnodar, who are also entering the competition at the third qualifying round stage.
