LEICESTER CITY will face Napoli after being handed a tough Europa League group stage draw.

The Foxes joined Napoli in Group C from Pot 2, and will also have to face a long trip to Russia to play Spartak Moscow.

Brendan Rodgers' side will also do battle with Polish side Legia Warsaw.

West Ham, meanwhile, should have a more straightforward time of things, having drawn Dinamo Zagreb, Genk and Rapid Vienna.

Scottish champions Rangers will face a pair of tough clashes with Lyon.

While Steven Gerrard's men will also return to Czech Republic to play Sparta Prague, following last season's unsavoury experience against Sparta's rivals Slavia.

Celtic, meanwhile, will play Bayer Leverkusen – with the Germans having knocked Rangers out in the Round of 16 the season before last.

Ange Postecoglou's side will also face Spanish side Real Betis and Hungarians Ferencvaros.
