Europa League draw LIVE! Arsenal and Man United find out group-stage opponents

Europa League draw LIVE! Arsenal and Man United find out group-stage opponents

Arsenal and Manchester United are among those who will find out their group-stage opponents this afternoon as the Europa League draw takes place. It’s less than two weeks until the action on the pitch gets underway, with the six matches all then taking place in the space of two months ahead of the World Cup.

For the Gunners it’s a return to European competition, after a season away, while Manchester United drop down after being in the Champions League last campaign before they were beaten by Atletico Madrid. Roma are also one of the favourites, qualifying as a result of winning the inaugural Europa Conference League.

Feyenoord, Monaco, Real Betis and Nantes are among those in the lower pots, with the English clubs potentially as keen to avoid long-distance travel as they are the tougher tests on the pitch. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below!

Live updates


Time to get in the mood

Not quite the Champions League anthem is it, we have to be honest.

But it’ll do to help get the excitement going – draw coming up in 30 minutes!


How Roma qualified for Europa League

Jose Mourinho’s Roma side are in the draw, after winning last season’s Europa Conference League.

Here’s how they did it!


Arsenal set for deep run

Before last season’s absence from European football, Arsenal were in the Europa League for four seasons in a row.

One round of 32 defeat, two semi-final exits, and a heavy loss to Chelsea in the 2019 final. After such a promising start to the season from the Gunners, another deep run is expected.

Possible groups

Malmo, Freiburg, Nantes.

That would be a group Arsenal and Man United would be pretty happy with you’d imagine. Not too much travel and big favourites to win all those matches.

Real Sociedad, Sheriff, Trabzonspor… not so much!
