Aberdeen finished second in the Scottish Premiership, ahead of Rangers, after they beat champions Celtic 1-0 at Celtic Park on the final day of the season.
The two clubs have never met before, while Burnley were the only English side in this stage of the draw.
"It's a fantastic draw," Derek McInnes told Aberdeen's club website. "We'll be playing against a team that has done exceptionally well in what is regarded as the best league in the world.
"It should be a fabulous contest, there are favourites in every tie and they're seeded for a good reason, We know we'll be big underdogs for this one but, rest assured, we'll be doing all we possibly can to cause an upset.
"There will be a terrific atmosphere at Pittodrie and I wouldn't be surprised if it's a sellout."
Last season Aberdeen were knocked out by Apollon Limassol 3-2 on aggregate in the third qualifying round, having beaten NK Siroki Brijeg 3-1 on aggregate in the previous round.
