Russian sides Rubin Kazan and Anzhi Makhachkala will take on Inter Milan and Liverpool, in the Europa Leagues group stages.

­The draw of the competition took place in Monaco, which will host UEFA’s Super Cup match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid later on Friday.

Rubin will play in Group H together with Italian giants Inter Milan, Serbia’s Partizan Belgrade and Neftci from Azerbaijan.

The Russian Cup winners have already faced Inter in the 2009/10 Champions League season, drawing the home match and losing 2-0 in Milan.

Anzhi, who are making just their second appearance in Europe, were drawn in Group A together with English powerhouse Liverpool, Udinese from Italy’s Serie A and Swiss side Young Boys.

The Europa League’s group stages are set to kick off on September 20.
