Blackburn Rovers have been handed a two-legged clash with Finnish side MyPa in the second and final qualifying round of the UEFA Cup. Mark Hughes' side reached this stage of the competition after beating Lithuanian outfit FK Vetra 6-0 on aggregate in the Intertoto Cup. MyPa are currently fourth in the Veikkausliiga having taken 22 points from their 14 matches in the 2007-08 campaign. However, in last weekend's round of games they were thrashed 5-0 by fifth-placed HJK Helsinki. They are coached by Ilkka Makela and beat EB Streymur 2-1 on aggregate in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Cup. Meanwhile, last season's Scottish Cup runners-up, Dunfermline, have been handed a tie against Swedish side Hacken. The first legs will be played on 16 August with the return fixtures taking place two weeks later.
