Nyon, Switzerland: Fenerbahce will play Salzburg in the third qualifying round of the Champions League after getting temporarily reprieved from a ban for match-fixing.

The Turkish league runner-up was excluded by UEFA, but reached agreement Thursday at the Court of Arbitration for Sport to play before its appeal is judged next month.

In some of the other 15 pairings drawn Friday, Zenit St. Petersburg will play Nordsjaelland, 1988 winner PSV Eindhoven faces Champions League debutant Zulte Waregem of Belgium, and Metalist Kharkiv will travel to play PAOK Thessaloniki of Greece.
