SOFIA, Bulgaria -- Lokomotiv Sofia will play their UEFA Cup second qualifying round first leg against Israel's Bnei Yehuda in the Slovakian town of Senec, the Bulgarian club said on Thursday.

UEFA said on Monday that Israeli teams must stage their home legs in neutral countries because of the ongoing conflict in Lebanon and Israel.

The first leg is on August 10 with the return on August 24 at CSKA's Bulgarska Armija stadium as facilities at Lokomotiv's home ground are not adequate.

Lokomotiv finished fourth in the 15-team Bulgarian premier league last season with 54 points, 14 points adrift of champions Levski.

The Sofia-based club knocked out Macedonian Cup winners Makedonija Skopje in the the UEFA Cup first preliminary round.
