Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club have been given the second placed team in Swiss Super League, Young Boys, as their Champions League draw appears to have favoured them.

Facing potential gruelling long trips to Ukraine for Dinamo Kiev or tough opposition such as Sampdoria and Auxerre, the fourth placed team in the Premier League last season have been given 'Young Boys' - a semi-professional sports club in Switzerland.

Although not the toughest of opposition, Young Boys feature Ivory Coast and Cameroon internationals that could pose a threat to the Tottenham defence that has leaked four goals to Spanish opposition, Villareal in pre-seaon.

"We will travel to the Stade de Suisse in Bern for the first leg on August 17/18 before the home leg at White Hart Lane on August 24/25." reads the statement from

Young Boys' english player, Scott Sutter who is reportedly also a fan of his new opponents said: "The draw could not be better, I'm still shaking from hearing it. I was just hoping for Tottenham.".

Young Boys will travel to meet Tottenham on August 24/25 after a first leg in White Hart Lane. They progressed to the play-offs thanks to a tough away win against Fenebahce in Turkey on Wednesday.

Managed by Bosnian Vladimir Petkovic, Young Boys, based in Bern, are two points from three games in the Swiss season which began on 17 July.

"We've only had one previous meeting against Swiss opposition and that came in the UEFA Cup in 1973-74 and a 9-1 aggregate win against Grasshoppers." the statement adds.

"We'll be favourites, obviously, but we have to give them the utmost respect," said Harry on hearing the draw after training on Friday.

"They beat Fenerbache in the last round and we watched the first leg on dvd and they could have won four or five, they hammered them at home.

"They then went away and won in Turkey and that's a fantastic result.

"There are no easy games at this level. They also have an astroturf pitch at their stadium and they play well on it, so it will be a tough game for us.

"We'll have to be prepared for it but we've Manchester City before that in the Premier League (August 14) and that's the first priority.

"We'll get that one out of the way and then it will be into the Champions League and we've got to try and get into the group stages, that would be fantastic for the club."

Club secretary, Darren Eales, added:

"It's not an easy draw. For them to beat Fenerbache 1-0 in Turkey [to get into the play-offs] is a brilliant result.

"All five teams are quality sides. It's up to us to prepare for it and get through. We're looking forward to it and getting into the Champions League group stages.

"Switzerland is not so far to travel, so that's good. And playing at home in the second leg is a bonus. We've got a good chance and a good team, we proved that last season."
