ECL Play-Off Draw: Hibs or FC Luzern v Aston Villa

Last updated : 07 August 2023 By Hibs Villa Luzerna Europa

Hibs have this afternoon been handed a possible dream tie with former European Champions Aston Villa.

The Hibees or Swiss side FC Luzern have been drawn against Villa in the Play-Off Round for the Europa Conference League.

Lee Johnson's men seen off Andorran minnows FC Inter d'Escaldes in the previous round 7-3 on aggregate, and will now fight it out with Luzern for the right to face the Midlands club.

Luzern come to Easter Road this Thursday for the first leg, before the return leg next Thursday in the Swissporarena.


What an absolute walloper of a draw for Hibs.

It probably eliminates any chance of us reaching the group stages, but it could still pull a lot of money into the club.

Then there is the possible return of club legend "Super" John McGinn.

However, we can't look that far, we have to get our season going and turn up for the Luzern clashes.

C'Mon the Hibees!!
