Newcastle United have been drawn against Metalist Kharkiv in the Europa League's round of 32.

The Magpies - who came second in Group D - will be at home in the first leg on Thursday, 14th February 2013 and away in the second leg seven days later.

Former Newcastle striker Patrick Kluivert, an ambassador for this year's tournament, helped to make the draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Ukrainian outfit finished third in their domestic league last season and came top of Group K with a 100 per cent home record at their 40,003-capacity Metalist Stadium.

Should United progress to the round of 16, they would face the winner of the tie between Hannover 96 of Germany and Anji Makhachkala of Russia on 7th and 14th March.
