The Europa Cup is considered as the most stressful competition with yet the longest group that will still accommodate 3rd place positions from the champions league spots. The 2012 champions, Chelsea will be considered favorite to top group L.
But may fall short below the 5times winners, Sevilla when it comes to lifting the cup.
This may not be considered as the blues favorite target but since winning the Europa cup will automatically qualify them to the champions league, Sarri’s men may increase their level of seriousness.
Last season’s finalist, Marseille will face Frankfurt and Inzaghi’s side, Lazio in group H, while a group that can be considered as group of death contains Anderlecht, Fenerbahce, Dynamo Zagreb and Slavia.
Arsenal will come back to correct their mistakes against Atletico Madrid last season. The Gunners will lock horns with the Portuguese side, Sporting Lisbon and Henrikh Mkhitaryan may face his country, Azerbaijan’s Qarabağ. Brendan Roger’s side will face last season’s semifinalist, Salzburg in group B which includes RB Leipzig and Rosenborg.
Gattuso’s AC Milan will accommodate Olympiakos, Real Betis and Dudelange in group F.
The summary of the group list are shown below:
