Uefa Conference League Play-Off Draw: Bohemians or PAOK v Hibs or Rijeka

Last updated : 02 August 2021 By Steve Forbes

Hibs today found out their possible play-off opponents in the Uefa Conference League.

Should the Hibees win their tie with Croats Rijeka (first leg at Easter Road this Thursday), they will face either Irish side Bohemians or Greek cracks PAOK.

The ties will be played on August 19th and 25th, with the away leg first.

Hibs have already seen of Andorran side Santa Coloma 5-1 on aggregate in the previous round.

Ed's View:

It's another pretty tough draw, but again it's not impossible.

PAOK would be tough customers from the Greek league, but the Hibees already have experience of knocking out a side from the Greek Super League, having defeated Asteras Tripolis on our last foray into European football in 2018.

A trip to Ireland to face Bohemians would give us a better chance of qualifying, and the trip would be easier, but the Irish won't give up without a fight.

In saying all that, we can't look to far ahead, focus has to be on Rijeka, let's hope the Hibees can give us another exciting European night.
