Europa League Group Stage Matchups

Europa League draw

I think I am one of the few people in the blog/media realm that seems to enjoy the Europa League (formerly UEFA Cup). I’ve always looked at it as a great way to get more cultured in European football and see some of the up and coming stars before the big clubs swoop in for them. That said, this competition can be quite long to follow, especially if you try and follow the qualifiers. Thankfully we are at the group stage and the field has been ‘narrowed’ down to 48 clubs from 24 nations.

I won’t do a group-by-group breakdown but I will post a feature on the favourites to win such as last season’s champions Club Atlético de Madrid and the side they beat in the semi-finals last season – Liverpool FC. Others I would rank among the favourites to make it to the late stages are Sevilla FC, Manchester City FC and FC Porto. However, the third-place finishers from the Champions League are parachuted into this competition during the next phase so a re-evaluation of favourites is always necessary.

For now, here are the groupings.
