Fenerbahce the runner- up of the Turkish Turkcell Super League takes a start in the European league today against Young Boys of Switzerland.

This will be the first match for newly promoted coach Aykut Kocaman.

Fenerbahce will play the first leg in Switzerland but will have the advantage of playing the return match at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium in Istanbul.

The winners of the five non-champions route ties will join Auxerre, Sevilla, Tottenham Hotspur, Sampdoria and Werder Bremen in the playoff round, which will be played on Aug. 17-18 and 24-25.

Bursaspor automatically qualifies for the group stages of the Champions League as the Turkey's top team.

According to the qualification system for the highest-level football championship club level in Europe, Fenerbahce is looking to become one of just five teams to enter the Champions League group stage from the non-champions’ path.
