Europa League 2019/20 Group Stage Draw Recap
The draw for the group stage of the Europa League 2019/20 has finally been made. Although it might not be as exciting as the group stage draw of Champions League 2019/20, there are still some interesting groups that could see high-quality matchups.
The team that has won this competition more than anyone else is Sevilla, and they will play in Group A alongside APOEL, Qarabag and Dudelange.
La Liga side Getafe will be the favorites to progress from this group, as the battle for second place between Basel, Krasnodar and Trabzonspor will be fascinating.
The group of death in this season’s Europa League will see Lazio, Celtic, Rennes and Cluj do battle for the top two places. All of these sides have a credible chance of reaching the next stage, and while Lazio may finish first; it will be interesting to see who can get the second spot.
Last season’s finalists and semi-finalists will do battle in Group F, as Arsenal and Eintracht Frankfurt have been drawn in the same group. Victoria and Standard Liege may also have hopes of reaching the next round, but it’s unlikely.
La Liga side Espanyol would have been disappointed with the group they were drawn in, purely because of the distances they will need to travel. CSKA Moscow, Ludogorets and Ferencvaros are their opponents.
Wolfsburg and Saint-Etienne will be the favorites to get out of this group, while Gent may look to cause an upset. Olexandriya may be the beating boys in this group.
AS Roma would have been thrilled with their group, as they look to be the favorites to progress through Group J with ease. Borussia Monchengladbach could be a sticky assignment, but Istanbul Basaksehir and Wolfsberger should be simple assignments.
